    Human Resources Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hitachi.

    Interview

    Management started by telling me about the company then asked me to go through my resume and explain it. They then asked behavioral questions. A few of the questions were tough but they were asked to determine your thought process and how you analyze different situations. The interview lasted about 35 minutes. Very nice people and seems like a challenging but fun workplace. Second and third interview were pretty quick

    No negotiations they offered the job I accepted. This was for a production associate position so not much you can negotiate on.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi (San Francisco, CA (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    This was a phone interview with the recruiter only, but she was really lovely and described the team and what they do well. She was positive about the work that they do, although I was left wondering about the specifics in terms of the actual projects they worked on. Next time I'll ask!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hitachi in August 2013.

    Interview

    Very vague questions were asked looking for me to interpret what it was he wanted to hear. Asked a lot of experience questions looking for the most experienced individual to move forward. Very professional interviewer however left it up primarily to me to decipher what it was exactly that he was asking.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hitachi in November 2013.

    Interview

    Most of the questions were the run of the mill how much experience do you have, why did you leave your last job, tell me about a problem you solved. I was also asked why I would like to work for Hitachi Medical Systems. Seemed to be a lot of long pauses after answering questions which I thought was odd.

    Interview Questions

    • The Technical questions seemed vague so I had a hard time gauging how in depth of an answer they wanted. Overall nothing seemed very difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Hitachi.

    Interview

    Initial interview over the phone, then a formal in person interview starting with HR and then several other personnel from the server department. It is an all day visit and resulted in a next day response. Company flies prospect out to office in Ohio and conducts an all day interview process. Very thorough, including a basic electronics test and other challenging interview questions.
