May I ask what kind of job is it at Toyota? Is it building cars?

Seriously, dress is just supposed to be jeans and a t-shirt.
Its a mass amount of people going into a giant room and writing a test. They'll have no idea who is who just by looking at you, and my guess is no one there will actually be from toyota. 1000s of people got this letter. It is only the first in an at least 6 step hiring process.

Apparently, even for "real" interviews for factory positions, you are allowed to wear jeans.

Although, I think it will be funny when I go to write it, because there WILL be people in full out suits.

Well, I went and did the test yesterday.

You go in and follow the signs to the "waiting room". Then someone comes and takes you all to a computer room where you take a seat in front of one of the PCs and do your assessment.

Don't dress in a suit... You'll look funny. I just wore some nice jeans and a nice shirt. No one was dressed too "fancy".

It took me about an hour to go through the whole test. It's a combination of multiple choice scenario questions and some timed simulation activities. It's all done on the computer. This test is apparently where lots of people are cut out (including my brother :P).

Hopefully, I did well enough to go on to the next phase, which is apparently an actual work day at the cambridge plant.

Thanks for the info. I figured that I wouldn't need to go any nicer than cargo pants so it's good to know that people are wearing jeans too. With the thousands of people who probably applied I'm interested in seeing how far I get before I get screened out -- this is already further than I expected :razz:

I go next Tuesday, anything I should know? Is there a website where I can take "mock" aptitude tests that are similiar? I am more concerned with doing well on the test as opposed to "looking good"

Not a lot of good jobs like this out there, so, its worth making the effort, thanks in advance to everyone!

PS: Just curious, anyone who posted here that previously wrote the test ever get hired?

I was just contacted about going for the practical aptitude test for an electrician position, not sure if this is the same as what you were going for but if anyone has done this, what exactly does it entail. When i spoke on the phone with the person they mentioned some PLC Programming, wiring/trouble shooting and a electrical based exam in the afternoon? can anyone describe in more detail what happens so i can be prepared.

I went in before Christmas. You go in from 9am-3pm-ish. Morning everyone gets split into two groups, one does PLCs and one does motors. PLC you need to program and wire a circuit that will allow a "repeater" function. Press a button for 5 seconds and release. Then a light will come on the same amount of time. For motors you need to wire a 3 phase 208v motor and design and wire a jog/run circuit. Assuming all is running you will take a short break and leave and the instructor will mess up some of your project and you'll have to fix it. Take a break for lunch and then after lunch is a test on the computer of general knowledge electrical questions. After that, go home.

Good luck as I was not about to get either project to work 100%. Only a couple of guys in a group of 12 could get it working.

Do you remember if it was a forward / reversing motor circuit request ? or just a jog run circuit ?
