    Quality Engineer/Warranty Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Marysville, OH (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marysville, OH (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I have interviewed TWICE with honda, the first time I went through the whole process through a recruiter. Passed the phone interview, met all the requirements to attain the position and even went on site. Expenses all paid by Honda, the position was an entry level position with little to no real technical requirements. The interview was very basic, STAR questions from start to finish (creative huh?). I was almost positive that I was going to get the job until 2 weeks later my RECRUITER EMAILED me saying "I interviewed well but the other candidate was 'technically' stronger." I don't really know what they mean by that seeing as though the only anything relating to technical requirement was MS office, Excel I was not technically strong enough to attain a "powerpoint/excel engineering position". Nevertheless I tried again and go figure I get yet another call that Honda is interested in me and wanted to interview me again. I gave it a shot, 3.5 weeks later not a single email or call.. Is that really a way to treat your "talent" base? I suppose this is also reflected in the overall image of the company. Dead set and absolutely adamant on ideas that will give more profit and less and less innovation with each passing year. Old school company, outdated concepts, morals and values and hopelessly uninspiring in the current market. Honda is not what I thought it would be like in person and most definitely not even a fraction of what it once originally stood for. I think these seemingly negative experiences were ultimately for the best, thanks but no thanks Honda. I will take my interests and talents elsewhere, making powerpoints and Excel spreadsheets didn't exactly look like a very promising career path for me anyway.

    The person doing the interviews was never clear on when she would get back to me and then when she was she did not hold up to her promise. I felt it was very unprofessional and all I got was excuses.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was asked to come in for On site interview. I was flown to Columbus, OH and drove to Marysville. The entire interview questions were behavior type questions. I was told I will get feedback within 2 to 3 weeks. I called the hiring manager the third week and he told me he is going to let the HR provide me with the feedback. The HR never contacted me after now a month and I have a feeling they are moving to another direction.

    Standard interview process with behavioral based questions, template series of questions, not too bad. One round of interview with manager of the role and then one round with HQ locations.

    HRIS Analyst/Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Marysville, OH (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marysville, OH (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Pros:
    -Very kind and sincere interviewers, they did communicate back to me via email (rare for recruiters)and I really appreciated the communication.

    Cons:
    -Very unorganized scheduling and lack of communication between coworkers. The in person interview was scheduled three weeks out and cancelled at 8AM the morning of the interview that was to occur at noon (4 hour notice). They said it was purely a scheduling conflict.
    -The prescreening interview was scheduled three days before the in person interview. Prescreening interview was rescheduled once, and occured the day before the in person interview was scheduled. A week later I followed up to be told they would not be going forward with the position.
    -Their talent management system has not been updated: they have very old positions listed as well as the position they said they would not be moving forward with.

    Conclusion: From the outside it seems they're going through a transition or growing pains because there were so many scheduling conflicts. I did appreciate being kept in the loop with communication but there are some administrative kinks that need worked out in their HR department.

    Mechanical Engineerineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone screen with an in person interview following. I was notified quickly that I had received an offer. The process was straight forward with very few curve ball questions. In person interview consisted of plant tour. If you are doing any kind of engineering I would recommend wearing steel toe shoes to the interview to look prepared.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications took a long time. Everyone I spoke with was very friendly; they accommodated my schedule very well, and took care to inform me of the status of the plant the day before my interview (there was very bad weather that day that caused some businesses to shut down). They provided a bottle of water for the interview, which is something I can't believe more companies don't do; I appreciated that a lot. There were five people in my interview, which was both unnecessary and intimidating. Took a very long time (one month) to get back with me after the interview; I was told to expect two weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Honda of America Mfg. in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was already a previous intern for Honda in the EGA department, near the end of my term HR asked me about my desired placement for another term. Therefore, I was scheduled to interview for an Industrial Engineer position with HMA and had one 1:1 interview with the manager over the department. He mainly asked me questions about my recent experience, and what I expect to gain in this upcoming experience. He was very kind and explained the job position in great detail as well as recommending a book to read to further understand the processes they do!
