    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Toyota Technical Center.

    Interview

    The interview process included a phone interview that lasted about 45 minutes and a second interview that included a short live assessment testing programming and Japanese proficiency. While this assessment is generally completed in person and on campus, the kind people at Toyota worked with me to instead conduct the assessment live over Skype. Communications were through a recruiter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Toyota Technical Center (Ann Arbor, MI) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I was approached by Toyota to interview with them after they received my resume from my college of engineering. I initially had a phone interview and about 2 days later they scheduled an interview. The initial phone interview consisted of a resume review with some added "STAR" questions that were fairly standard. The second interview was held at the TTC where i met with 3 managers, 1 general manager and an HR representative. All of the managers were mechanical engineers some of them in physical testing and one in simulations. I was asked to do another resume review with a couple of questions asked from them about project i have worked on. I completed a 10 to 15 minute presentation where a couple of questions were asked during with more to follow. The questions were insightful but not too difficult to answer everyone seemed generally interested in the presentation. Following the presentation i was asked some several technical questions that were not too hard. Although i did get confused about one of the questions the interviewers helped with it. Following the questions i was given a 15 to 20 minute tour of the facilities which were new and very nice. The work culture seemed very business oriented with open desks instead of cubicals, which is common in Japanese's workplaces. The people all were very friendly and seemed very knowledgeable.

    Interview

    There was an initial interview with the Assistant Manager and a follow up interview with General Manager and Manager.
    Questions were centered around past experience and also included a "what would you do to solve this problem....".
    The proposed problem was an actual task which was then assigned to me after being hired.
    Fair and balanced process and interviewers appreciated my pre-prepared questions to ask them.
