Average Interview


The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Toyota in February 2012.


I got an email from a hiring manager about setting up a phone interview. The phone interview was fairly easy and consisted of the general questions like "why Toyota" and "are you willing to travel" as well as some behavioral interview questions drawing from your work and education experiences. The interview was conducted by the hiring manager and two other people who worked in procurement. A few days later I got a call saying they would fly me out to their offices in Kentucky for an in-person interview. The flew me out and put me up at a hotel. The interview took about 2 hours. I first interviewed with two people who asked me about my background, some more behavioral questions, and an easy math problem solving question (they even give you a calculator). After that, I met with another person for much shorter, more laid back interview. He just asked about my previous experiences. Then the hiring manager gave me a bunch of material about Toyota and what it's like to live in Cincinnati. Later that night, myself and some other interviewees had dinner with some people who are currently buyers at Toyota. So, overall it was a fairly easy interview process. Everybody was really nice. Although, I ended not getting the job.
