    Inventory Control Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Yokohama Tire (Santa Ana, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR to come for an on-site interview in Santa Ana to meet with the hiring manager. Although I expected this to be a straightforward interview, it took a number of strange twists along the way. My resume stated that I had advanced Japanese language ability. Although the position did not require this, the hiring manager decided to test my ability. A Japanese American sat in on the interview and acted as interpreter for a few questions I was asked in Japanese.

    I was also given an on-the-spot Excel test. The hiring manager slid his laptop to me and tested my ability on some Excel functions. I have been tested on my Microsoft Office computer savvy many times before, but I was usually given the courtesy knowing this in advance and usually it is done separate from the interview.

    I discovered later that the hiring manager and I had worked at the same company in the past, but at different times. Since one of his contacts/relatives still worked at that company, he had him/her contact my previous department and inquire about me before the on-site interview. This is a questionable hiring method at best.

    Overall, it was a strange experience. The hiring manager was not very talkative, making the atmosphere a bit uncomfortable. I received neither an offer or the usual rejection email that most companies send out.

    Production Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Starkville, MS

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Yokohama Tire (Starkville, MS) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview with Human Resources, an in person interview with section managers, and a panel interview with HR Manager, Section Managers, YTMM Vice President, and Director of Operations. HR was very friendly, and answered many questions. Next interview with managers was very relaxed and laid back. The final panel interview was more challenging. It was intimidating to be questioned by a Japanese executive. It was also very difficult to understand them due to the language barrier

    Marketing & Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yokohama Tire.

    Interview

    Quick phone interview with H.R. then in-person interview with H.R. and hiring manager.
    H.R.person seemed annoyed that I hadn’t completed the application the emailed me prior to the interview. I apologized for this. However, when I later checked my email they hadn’t included the application attachment with their correspondence (oops).

    Everyone seemed friendly but the culture seems very conservative.

    Position I was interviewing with was later posted by a recruiter with a salary that was slightly lower than I had expected so not overly disappointed it didn’t work out.
