    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Toyota North America (Blue Springs, MS) in March 2011.

    Phone and panel interview were very standard for Toyota. They want answers in STAR format. Questions like "Tell me about a time when you and a coworker did not see eye-to-eye, and how the issue was resolved." Nothing to be afraid of, just jot down a few anticipated scenarios, and fit them to each question.

    Ask for a very high salary from the start. My offer was about $5k less than I asked for.

    Toyota uses a basic STAR format. There are typically a couple of teamwork or problem solving questions asking for examples. Then there was a question of why do you want to work here? The interview is usually only about 20-30 minutes and will be on site. There may be a phone screening before that with position specific questions to decide if they want to invite you for the interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Toyota North America.

    Interview

    Typical interview times is about 3, one with HR, the other is with hiring manager and the last is with the hiring manager and the vice-president of the department which you'll be entering. HR will interview you based on your qualifications, experience as well as your suitability. Hiring managers will ask you more on your knowledge of the job as well as to test your critical thinking and problem solving skills. Last interview with the hiring manager and vice-president is more of them explaining the overall job to you to see if you might still be interested.

    Interview Questions

    • To explain the current automotive market as well as the automotive market in the next 3-5 years time. And explain in your opinion, which countries should Toyota expand into and why? And what factors be it natural or man-made will affect the Toyota manufacturing line?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Basically, there was no room for negotiation. If you don't accept their terms, they will not even ask you to stay.
