Aptiv's Winning Culture from Aptiv on Vimeo.

A simple, compelling, and memorable mission is critical to any organization’s success. It attracts and retains talent. Ask any Aptiv employee what his or her mission is, and you’ll inevitably receive the same response: to build a safer, greener and more connected world.  

The passion our employees share doesn’t stop when they go home at the end of the day. It extends to the communities in which we live and work, and is reflected in the numerous hours of volunteerism our employees have engaged in each and every year. We deliver measurable results where it matters most – in our communities most in need.

To celebrate Earth Day and create a green ecological environment, the Changchun plant in China organized a tree planting activity where each department was responsible for planting and watering a tree. Across the globe in 2019, the Aptiv Foundation donated 160,000 trees to the National Forest Foundation to replenish the areas impacted by fires. Additionally, 27 manufacturing facilities in Mexico participated in the “Basura Challenge”, where they collected garbage from community areas, parks and schools to improve the cities in which they work.

Organized by the Depaul Charity, Aptiv teams in Europe competed in a raft race where they collected funding for the homeless. In India, Kerala state faced its worst flooding in 100 years. The local Aptiv team helped their affected neighbors in many ways, from supplying groceries and meals for more than 1,300 families in three rehabilitation camps to contributing food, water, clothing, and financial aid to victims. Building a strong, sustainable business that makes the world a better place is at the very foundation of our culture. It’s who we are at Aptiv.

Aptiv remains a long-time supporter of STEM education around the world – providing team mentors to high school students, donating funds to support 25 First Robotics teams and granting sponsorships to Greenlight for Girls, an international organization dedicated to inspire girls of all ages and backgrounds to pursue STEM subjects. We also have global university partnerships where we volunteer, including AGH Poland, Carnegie Mellon, Georgia Tech, Karlsruher Institute for Technology, MIT, National University of Singapore, RWTH Aachen University, Xian Jiaotong University, and Zhejiang University. So many people in our communities need educational support. Aptiv develops connections with institutions to provide resources to students and improve education. In each of the last two years, through the Aptiv Foundation, the Troy Technical Center in Michigan donated 2,800 lbs. of bulk school supplies to the Lighthouse of Oakland Country for children in southeastern Michigan. Employees gathered together to fill more than 1,600 backpacks with these supplies, and to make new connections in the process.

    I have been working at Aptiv full-time (More than a year)


    Rare opportunity in Ireland to work in the automotive manufacturing industry.
    Genuine career opportunities.
    The company truly embraces diversity.
    Strong CEO and sense of being in the right place at the right time.
    Salary, pension and health benefits above average but bonus is only average.
    Good social scene, great offices and location, free breakfast, friendly co-workers and some memorable nights out.


    Top-heavy management structure. Unfortunately there are too many middle management layers who only have administration/delegation capability rather than hands-on capability and direct experience.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace a genuine people and ownership culture - incentivise all FTE staff by offering a stock plan.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Aptiv in February 2020.


    1 phone call interview and then comes oniste interview. Onsite invitation comes after around 1.5 weeks. The interview process was pretty well-organized and friendly. The phone call interview was not hard and the onsite interview was pretty extensive.

    Interview Questions

    • The phone call interview is on the easy side, though I was a bit nervous and did not do my best.
      The onsite interview was pretty well-organized and everyone you can see were well-prepared for the interview. It's a more technical position so I had 3 people ask about maths and 1 for coding in a specific environment.   Answer Question
