    Business Excellence Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Daimler Trucks North America in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially, I was interviewed by phone and asked a series of questions. She then let me know that she'd give me another phone call the following week to schedule an in-person interview. I received the call the following week and was scheduled to meet for the interview at their corporate office (wasn't a very convenient location, nor where I'd be working if offered a position). It was a behavioral interview and it only took about 30-45 minutes. There, I was asked another series of questions by her and another employer. She had a list of questions and wrote all of my answers down.

    Overall, the interview went pretty well. I answered most of the questions confidently (a few times hearing one of them say they liked my answer) and was qualified for the position. The corporate company building was nice and it seemed like a very nice environment. However, the company is known for hiring only within or hiring employees' children first. This was the case.

    Two weeks later I received a rejection letter informing me that the position had been filled. An inside source from the company informed me that another employee's child had been interviewed over the phone and was offered the position immediately.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got a call for an interview the next week and a response within a week. The interview was casual and every answer to my questions exceeded what I thought I was going to learn. Security guy was easy to talk to and helped settle the nerves a bit. Noticed that Daimler cares about its employees.

    Engineer III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Daimler Trucks North America in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    One HR person, and the direct team leader. Questions were mostly engineering focus and related to the job tasks and knowledge for the job. Not much focus about personality or "how would you behave in xyz situation." My feeling was that the interview was shallow.

    Interview Questions
    • Talk about an event at previous work that involves you to think and act beyond your job expectations.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, even though the management and HR were willing to exchange or entertain a debate, no review was done on the offer. My feeling was that Daimler is a cheap company. The competition pays more for the same position, experience, and education level. I accepted the offer because it gives room to look for something else.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Daimler Trucks North America.

    Interview Details

    Open jobs are first posted internally for at least one week. If no suitable internal candidates are found, then the job is posted externally. Contractors can only apply once the job has been posted externally. The interview process varies widely among hiring managers, some opting to include peers or subordinates, either one-on-one or a panel situation.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Very little negotiating room. Depending on the time of year, you should ask if you are eligible for next merit increase. If not, then you can sometimes push for a higher starting salary.

    Training & Development Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Daimler Trucks North America.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume and cover letter online. Originally learned about the job via a LinkedIn discussion group posting. The next day I was contacted by the recruiter to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview went smoothly. Some questions from the phone interview: Why did I want to work for Daimler? What were my salary expectations? (I thought discussing salary at this point in the process was too early.)

    Later that day was invited to a 3-person panel in-person interview by the hiring manager.
