    I worked at DENSO America (Less than a year)


    My team was remarkable, very nice, fun to be around. We had events monthly such as Fowling and a division wide Softball tournament. It was a very fun place to work where I enjoy to go everyday. I was an Intern with BCS 3 (Body Component Structure 3 - Climate Control Panel). I joined on at the end of the project - last 8 months in a 2.5 year project. After proving myself to my team, they gave me many tests to do individually. I ran several 700+ hour tests in thermatrons such as high temperature high humidity tests and high temp low temp cyclic tests as well as short daily tests such as dust intrusion and salt water intrusion tests. I also got to work with circuit boards, changing LED's and resistors to try to get the color and brightness of the illuminance in spec. This experience gave me the opportunity to learn a lot, more than just ME work, but all EE work, working very closely with EE's. I recommend DENSO to everyone and anyone! This company is truly remarkable.


    One con is that my team did not invite me to the weekly meetings. At one point, I realized I was missing out on these and asked to join, but still was not asked to join the next ones, only by asking was I able to join. I did bring this up to my manager at the eval at the end of my internship though, so I am hoping he has changed this. As for other groups, I am not sure if they invite their interns to their meetings. I don't see why they wouldn't as we are part of their team.

    Advice to Management

    Invite interns to meetings! It gives us a deeper understanding of the company and helps us learn more about the industry a lot faster. It also eliminates the time you have to spend giving background information about a job if we have already heard about it in the meeting.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DENSO America (Southfield, MI).


    Friendly, there were three people conducting interviews. They asked many of the classic interview questions and a few about the history of the company. Be prepared to answer as there are two or three people interviewing at once.
