I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Marukome USA (Irvine, CA) in August 2014.
The interview itself was in Japanese, and I was interviewed by 2 person.They were typical Japanese people, and according to their questions, I found that they were trying to see if I had the knowledge of Japanese company's culture and rules.The question itself were not so difficult , but they did not express if they liked your answer or not, so there was no way to guess the possibility of you being hired.
