    Operations Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Terex.

    Interview Details

    After applying for the position through an online job board, I received an email requesting that I fill out an online application. The next step was a phone screening that took about an hour. This interview was in depth and the screener was pleasant and not rushed. Next, my information was passed to a Senior Recruiter that became my point of contact. The Senior Recruiter was very responsive to my follow-ups as a panel interview with the hiring manager via phone was scheduled. Had I been a "finalist", the next step would have been an onsite interview and then.....? The process is as expected and played out over about 4 weeks (working around schedules on the panel interview).

    Interview Details

    The Human Resource gal called me six months after I had applied for the job. I was not going to go because of this but I decided to go anyways. She e-mailed me the wrong directions so I had to stop at a different building to get proper directions. I don't know who runs that place but they need some help, that's for sure.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Terex in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Multi step interview process, starting with a phone interview with HR, then a phone interview with the hiring manager, and a panel interview, and a follow up phone interview with folks from Corporate. There were many situational questions all aimed at determining how you would react in different scenarios. Seemed like a good company with good people.

    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redmond, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Redmond, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Terex in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews and two onsite interviews. I interviewed via phone initially with an internal contract recruiter acting as a gatekeeper. Second phone interview was with the hiring manager who did not ask any technical questions.

    I was invited in for an onsite interview where I expected to meet the hiring manager, did not happen. I met with two individuals from operations, one finance manager, and was given a plant tour. Overall, I was impressed.

    I was then invited back for a second onsite interview and met with the hiring manager (Director), a finance manager, and a VP, overall, not impressed.

    No difficult questions, just complaints about the lack of visibility into their manufacturing finance system.

    I felt that the opportunity would present a challenge and that I could add value with my experience and skill set so I played along and went through the process.

    Final outcome after spending hours interviewing; the internal contact recruiter contacted me and informed me that I would not be extended and offer for employment.

    No feedback or reasons given, which I felt was odd considering the level of the position that I interviewed for.

    Anonymous Employee in Redmond, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Terex in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted through email by a regional Recruiter for Terex. Initial email was to set up a prescreening over the phone which was about 30-45 minutes long.

    After initial prescreen, if you get called back for a second phone interview , it usually is about 45-60 minutes long with a hiring manager and a second person who usually is working that position, in this case a current Manufacturing Engineer I.

    Typical Questions regarding Manufacturing Engineer I for both interviews
    1. Describe your work history that is relative to this position?
    2. What is your knowledge and experience with shop machinery and hand tools?
    3. What is your experience or knowledge with pnuematics and hydraulics?
    4. Explain what is lean manufacturing, tools and techniques used.

    With most answers you give, relate your response to Lean Manufacturing, Kaizen, RCA, DMAIC, Value Stream Mapping, 3P and 7 waste and how you may applied them to your previous work experience and if it was successful or not.
