    Interview

    This company is moving to Dallas, TX yet wants marketing employees with automotive experience. Coming to this market, I would have hoped they would look for talent over industry but they did not even consider someone without auto background

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Toyota North America.

    Interview

    Flown up to Erlanger KY for interview following initial phone interview. Manager did not have a copy of my resume so I provided one and was also late to interview. Typical nonsense behavorial questions. The recruiter who participated in the interview, told me he would contact me within two weeks to follow up. Did not hear back for almost two months. I sent a follow up email with no response. Left a voicemail - no response. Finally got hold of recruiter who informed me that I did very well in the interview, however another candidate was chosen. The recruiter clearly had no intention of contacting me. Advice to Toyota - if a candidate uses vacation and travels across the country to interview, at least have the common courtesy to follow up with the candidate regardless of outcome. The recruiting is outsourced and doing Toyota a disservice - very unprofessional. Reimbursement for out of pocket expenses was very slow and I had to follow up several times. I expected much better from a company like Toyota, and have no desire to apply for any future opportunities.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Toyota North America in August 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen - interviewer was quite confusing, as if I had applied to the incorrect position. I applied online, and there were two identical positions listed, so there must've been a mismatch between their online job postings and HR's understanding.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Toyota North America in August 2016.

    Interview

    I did not expect this level of unprofessionalism from Toyota.

    I had a phone interview with an HR representative. The interviewer was very friendly – asked a few questions about my background and experience, seemed very pleased with what I said and spent the rest of the interview trying to sell me the company. At the end of the call he indicated that he would recommend me for the next round of interviews and said I would hear back from him within a week. A week went by – and nothing... I sent a follow up e-mail to check on the status – no reply!!! Now more than a month later, there is not even a short ‘no thank you’ response from the HR. So incredibly unprofessional.
