    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Toyota North America (Plano, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    casual but intimidating, very direct. They wanted direct answers, They kept asking me to refer to 1st person singular and past experiences, not "what ifs". I applied online and received a call from the recruiter the next day and set up an in person interview the day after that. it was very fast. By the next morning I had a rejection email.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Toyota North America (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The process was pretty straightforward. Had an initial phone screening then a follow up interview where I met with a recruiter for about 30 minutes. Received an offer within 2 weeks of the in person interview. They do a great job of explaining exactly what they are looking for in answers to their questions (STAR format).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Toyota North America (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    HR phone screen. Hiring manager phone screen. Panel interview with two on site and two via teleconference. HR follow up phone conversation (benefits and salary range review). Face to face interview with hiring manger, his boss and his boss. Panel interview had open ended background questions followed by a series six situation, task, action and results questions. The final interview with such high level people seemed excessive to me. All open ended questions obviously targeting questions they had about my resume and experience. Not sure how they are going to keep up with hiring needs as they open their Dallas campus with such an involved process, Long delays between each step. Asked before leaving the final interview what their timeline was and they indicated they would be making a decision that day...still took several weeks and follow ups before receiving an auto email rejection. Obviously they made an offer to someone else and were waiting until they accepted and passed the background check before informing the other candidates. That was somewhat obvious and annoying when they could have initially let me know they had chosen to make an offer to someone else first and are waiting for final acceptance...seems more reasonable to me, but possibly that opens up another can of worms.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Toyota North America (Ann Arbor, MI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed over the phone. STAR method. Most of the questions were straight forward but they ask follow up questions so be prepared. I was then asked for in person interview which went well. My biggest concern is that they fail to respond with results and lead you on for a long time. This is pretty disrespectful for a company this large to not respond to emails regarding the interview.
