    Pros

    Hitachi HTA is a wonderful company to work for. The benefits and salary are great. Great coworkers and management.

    Cons

    Heavy travel, but that goes with the territory as a field engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hitachi (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    First interview was via telephone with a sales manager, standard questions about experiance, why I want to work for Hitachi, willing to travel etc. It was easy conversation with standard questions. later met with this person from out of town at lobby in their hotel, similar questions. Was told about the company, their basic plans in this division, that some divissions might intergrate. Was asked about my relationships with my current customers, and who I knew in those companies. Was asked examples of how I solved problems and over came obsticles.
