I call that DRIVEN OR DRIVE, that is what she had because she wants to work for Toyota no matter what happened that day. And she did finish all the drills. So eating is very important and REST(your'll see)


Oh no...that's terrible! But atleast she finished like a trooper! So what exactly do you do I'm trying to get myself mentally psyched for this! Hahaha! What does most people wear for this..I'm assuming jeans and tshirt and tennis shoes would be appropriate.

Day 2: You want to dress comfortably and wear tennis shoes. You will warm up but be sure to wear at least short sleeves. You can't really prepare except to arrive rested and ready for workout. There are 3 stations: spot welding, car and weight wall. At all stations you simply follow computer prompts and there is a practice before each starts. Welding is strenuous on shoulders and hands, car is strenuous on legs, shoulders and back for some people, and weights are strenuous on legs and arms. Keeping energized and pacing is the key.

Please advise whether you have called and were told to NOT call.
I'd advise you not to call. They are working on calling people back as soon as they can. They are bombarded with calls which further slows the process.

Yes dress comfortable, no tight pants, HAHA. I did the weights drill first. I was racing with this lady, big big no,no. They are not going by your speed, just accuracy, pace yourself. Remenber they are watching you up close.HINT, HINT. I was making all kinds of faces on the weight drill. The guy next to me was just pressing the next button and was not doing the drill. When we had our break, he realized we were on camera. So just pace with all the drills. The other two drills are not bad at all. MAGIC word PACE yourself, if you don't , you will get tired quickly. SO wear jeans and t-shirt, because there is alot of sweating coming your way. If you can not walk to the mailbox at home without getting tired, don't do it, HAHA.
GOOD LUCK!!

Good luck with interview. It's not as bad as you might think. The setting is very relax and comfortable. They are very nice.

Did your derriere hurt the next day? I know mine did and I didn't know I had muscles there.

And focus on SAFETY too - that's a huge thing with Toyota. Example, lift with a straight back. On the weight wall, it will help if you can do squats repetitively. You will have to do this while holding a little bit of weight.
