    Very friendly environment for an intern. There is plenty of training and on the job training to learn. Plus, they have a great intern program that you can meet many other interns.


    This is probably a specific issue, but i found that I was never really given much work to do. I usually had to find something to do or bug my manager about work to do.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that if you have an intern, you give them good work that needs to be done and be helpful along the way.

    Design Release Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yazaki (Canton, MI) in September 2015.


    Very straightforward. The interviewer wanted focused an even amount on personality and skillset. Expect questions about your background experience. Successful projects you have done in the past are big. Also, the interviewer emphasized that the whole manufacturing line depends on you and to expect late design changes from automotive clients such as GM or Ford. You are basically responsible for positioning the wiring inside the car while dealing with internal obstacles (metal sheets, edges, etc.). The interviewer made it clear that flexibility and adaptability are essential qualities for this role.
