    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Takata (Auburn Hills, MI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    very smooth but relatively very long face-to-face (on-site) interview - 1.5hrs twice. The questions are similar each times but interviewers were very gentle and explained the job descriptions well.

    Had first call interview with HR and two on-site interviews (1st with HR, managers; 2nd with director and VP). Then i received the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Takata (Auburn Hills, MI) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process is extremely easy if you have a reference. I had a phone conversation with the hiring manager for about 10 minutes. We scheduled an interview at Takata which took maybe 45 minutes tops. I spoke with Human Resources for 20 minutes and Engineering Management for 25 minutes and that was it. I received a call two days later with a job offer.

    On the application they had a field for "expected pay" and I filled it out and they gave me that pay. I could have probably asked for more.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Takata (Auburn Hills, MI) in November 2011.

    I actually had an inside reference which helped the process along greatly. Aside from that, I had a 20 minute phone interview with the hiring manager, I went in about a week later for a 1-hour sit down interview with HR and that manager. About three days later I was then provided an offer for the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Takata (Auburn Hills, MI) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The Takata interview process is not too bad, but different. After the initial call from HR you are brought into an onsite interview. You first interview with HR, but in a more detailed way then other places. It's like they are you hiring manager. After that you interview with a manager and maybe a lead. Sometimes they will bring in a director also.

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate and settled for an offer that was level with the job I had been laid off from. They said they have not given raises in 3 years and I would be paid unfairly if they gave me more.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Takata (Detroit, MI) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Had three interviews with the hiring manager, director and an employee after got a call from HR.
    The HR told me the manager was very impressed with me but they were concerned about my expectation. I contacted the manager to inform that I was flexible. Waited another week or so without getting any feed back. I e-mailed the HR to get no response, e-mailed twice to the manager to get no reply. I think they are lack of professionalism and even rude. It would not cost for them to say no cost me!
