    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at NTN Bearing (Mount Prospect, IL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Emailed through a recruiter. Phone call with recruiter, the recruiter didn't really seem to understand the job or what the company was looking for. Skipped the phone interview with the hiring manager and went straight to an in person interview. Interviewed with HR and the hiring manager. General questions only. Mostly talked about the industry in general.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at NTN Bearing (Mount Prospect, IL) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Phone screening, a personality test more than a real assessment of job skills and ability to perform. Interviewer spoke and conducted "interview" with a lack of enthusiasm. No passion for the company or the industry. Interviewer sounds as if she doesn't know a 6205VVC3 from a hole in the head, or from a 6305VVC3. All one way, no opportunity for interviewee (or defendant, depending on your view) to ask questions and express enthusiasm for the opportunity to work for the company, or enthusiasm for the products and the applications where they are used. Our "conversation" had all the thrill of watching grass grow or listening to paint drying on a wall.

    Maybe it's just as well NTN didn't want my comprehensive knowledge of ball and roller bearing products, specifications and applications; and the buyers, plant managers, industrial engineers and (yes) end users who actually keep NTN in business (customers, customers, customers, gotta show you care about the customer). The company has quite a regular turnover in this position, which suggests they're hiring the wrong people for the job (probably people who sound great on personality tests but can't take care of customers knowledgeably and with genuine concern for their success with NTN's products. Maybe they need a new interviewer.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were "tell me about a time when..." oriented. No questions to confirm the applicant actually knows the business, the product, or the job itself, to say nothing of the applicant's knowledge of competitors and the distributor and OEM market.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NTN Bearing (Frankfort, IN) in January 2008.

    Interview

    Interview process was 1:1 and lasted roughly 1 hour. HR rep had no information on basic position requirements, and could not provide any position goals that were expected. They also had the Tool Crib assigned to no specific department, but yet would not elude to possible area assignment.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions for the position due to the fact that the HR rep was ill prepared for an interview directed to this position.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation from HR rep. Negotiation didn't take place until after being hired and then upper management made it up as the went.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at NTN Bearing in March 2010.

    Interview

    I signed up for an interview spot through a university career center website. The interview lasted for 30 minutes and was pretty informal. The interviewer mainly asked questions relating to my resume. There was some time at the end to ask questions. Overall, the interview was very laid back, relaxing and did not include a single behavioral question or case question.

    There wasn't an offer due to the fact that there are other college recruiters interviewing other students.
