Hyundai Motor America – Why Work For Us?


What would happen if people who were passionate about cars took the time to think about them all over again, as though for the first time?

What if they cracked the entire industry wide open, peered more deeply into it, spread out all its parts, and questioned their every detail?

What if they set aside the rules and vowed to discover the things that really matter about a car the things that are universally and undeniably true?

What if they stood face-to-face with each and every automotive assumption out there and challenged them all with an unprecedented sense of openness and honesty? What kind of answers would they find?

At Hyundai, we ask ourselves the important questions every day. And, every day, we seek the best answers. It’s what makes us grow as a car company. It’s what makes us Hyundai.

    I have been working at Hyundai Motor America full-time (More than a year)


    A great team of very engaged associates. Lots of cross-collaboration in my group. New Executive Leadership at the CEO and COO level are refreshing. Hyundai is making great strides in product, people and better processes.


    The Automotive industry is changing fast and HMA is not immune to that pressure. What will make Hyundai successful in the future, is that we challenge status quo and have a great ability to change quickly with few resources.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your greatest resource.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hyundai Motor America (Fountain Valley, CA) in March 2018.


    The interview process was fairly straight forward. Two Phone interviews (HR, then hiring manager, then an in person that consisted of meeting with 3-4 people). The recruiter I worked with was phenomenal. Very friendly and helpful. Communication was good as well. I have been in some interviews where the company just goes dead. With Hyundai, once the process started, it kept going at a reasonable pace.
