#TeamAAM from our facilities in Asia, Europe, North America and South America recently participated in two-day unconscious bias workshops with diversity and inclusion expert Dr. Steve Robbins. Associates learned about the origins and effects of unconscious bias, the importance of inclusion, strategies for mitigating unconscious bias and more. In-person sessions were held at our Europe Headquarters and Engineering Center in Langen, Germany as well as our Guanajuato Manufacturing Complex in Mexico, while #TeamAAM in other countries tuned in virtually. Thank you #TeamAAM for your commitment to listening, learning and taking action. We are AAM and we are better, together.

    Average Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at American Axle & Manufacturing (Detroit, MI) in Jul 2021


    Interview was mostly "situational" where I was asked how I would handle a variety of situations and give specific examples from my prior experience - ranging from supplier relationships to coworker conflict. I felt the interview process was more to measure my work ethic and personality and how well I would fit into the AAM corporate culture and working in larger Teams. I had a long list of questions and AAM took the time to make sure all of my questions were answered.

    Give an example of how you handled a supplier price increase, Give an example of how you built a commodity strategy - the steps involved and what worked well and what you would do differently next time, Tell me about a time you had to mentor a difficult coworker, the challenges and how you overcame them, If you were in a situation in the office where you heard a coworker talking negatively how would you handle the situation... not exact questions, the interview was a long time ago, but you get the concept.
