    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (West Point, GA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The hiring process is long! So don't get discouraged! they called me the beginning of may for my interview. This consisted of an interview with two people that asked questions like....give us an example of how following the steps in a procedure helped you complete a task or goal at a previous job? Pretty basic stuff. Then you go on to interview with a person for "role playing" where you pretend to be an employee in different situations with your supervisor, such as ...You just finished working a double shift and your supervisors is now asking you to work on your day off. Then you have to respond to him. It took a little over an hour for that first phase. The second phase is the unpaid assessment. It's very simple for this phase! JUST READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS! It's not rocket science but they do try and trip you up. Just read and follow the directions and you should be fine. The last part is the physical, and drug screening. This consists of breathing, hearing, vision, strength, dexterity, and general health check. A standard urinalysis is the drug test. With each step there was about 1 to 1 1/2 months between so it's not at all a quick process.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, starting pay is 14.90 hr plus pretty good benefits. Regular performance raises are .75 every six months for 36 months. Then you can go into die cast and maintanance.
