Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Toyota North America in January 2017.

Interview

I applied online and got an email from a recruiter a few days later to set up a phone interview. That interview was with HR. Very simple, no technical questions.

    Met Toyota at a recruiting event, offered me an interview on the spot. There were 2 interviewers who were very friendly. The interview was simple behavioral questions and nothing unexpected. For an engineering internship. Was offered the position after the first interview on the spot

    Reasons for Declining

    They mentioned the company lags on innovation and take a more conservative stance in the product development market. Experiencing an employee shortage so overtime is considered the norm.

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Toyota North America (Ann Arbor, MI) in November 2011.

    Received a phone call from a recruiter by applying online. The recruiter set up a 1 hour phone interview with a group of hiring managers. They asked basic questions about my resume along with behavioral questions following the STAR interviewing process. Within a day I was contacted for a second interview to come on site where I gave a presentation in front of a group of 10-15 hiring managers/employees. In addition, I was asked some engineering questions on the dry erase board in front of the group. The whole interview lasted about an hour and then I was taken on a tour of the facility. I received an offer within a few weeks.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Toyota North America (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    A quick phone interview with the recruiter to asses if my abilities and career goals aligned with the company and position. Interviewed one-on-one with potential future manager. Discussed position life-cycle, job scope, future job scope, company supported internal opportunities, and overall work culture. Everyone had a relaxed attitude with obvious focus on getting the right person, not just getting someone. It was important to make my future goals known and address possible issues that I already have with my current employer. Always important not to talk down about current employment or in general.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Toyota North America (Erlanger, KY) in December 2008.

    Interview

    They sit you down and ask you general, behavioral style questions. Many may sound alike but i believe the main purpose of their interviews is to see how well you communicate and how well you can speak. It's not that difficult and very similar to others. Just practice your speech.
