A survey by Jobplanet.com, an online community platform that shares information about companies and the world of work, has been released that lists automotive companies with the most difficult job interviews.
The list, which comprises six companies, is based on a survey conducted from August 2015 to May this year and involved 3,000 participants who were interviewed for jobs by automotive companies. Scores from one to five are given, representing the level of job interview difficulty. One, for instance, means “very easy" while three is “relatively difficult.”
On top of the list is PT Astra International with a score of 3.10, while retailer Toyota Sales Operation or AUTO2000 under PT Astra International ranks second with the same score. The Indonesian Mitsubishi distributor PT Krama Yudha Tiga Berlian Motors is third with 3.07. They are followed by PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing, PT Nissan Motor Indonesia and PT Gajah Tunggal in fourth, fifth and sixth position, respectively.

Among the questions asked by the online platform were how applicants make decisions, what a company can do to improve its services, how candidates deal with failure, their experience in university, their plans to improve the automotive industry and their motivation to work for a company.
“We released the survey results by Jobplanet.com to give an overview for jobseekers [especially] in job interviews with automotive companies in Indonesia,” said the chief product officer of Jobplanet in Indonesia, Kemas Antonius, in a press release. “We hope the information will be beneficial, especially for those who want to prepare themselves to work for the automotive industry […] the questions are general, so they can also be studied by people who want to work in other industries.” (asw)
