    FALD Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lisle, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lisle, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Navistar in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    phone interview question was about 3 financial statements and one behavioral question. The 2nd round was much more intense. Wear a suit, no if ands or buts about that. Be prepared for 2 interviews. 2 vs 1 both times. One is behavioral and other is technical. They do technical first but don't think there is relief...like the hard part is over...bc the behavioral is just as hard. They give you case study and you get 30 mins to prepare all about cash. If you are going to prepare about this make sure you study factors of cash why it would increase and decrease and how it effects other accounts. The night before there is a mixer. You have the opportunity to talk to people in the program and the interviewers. The interviewers wont tell you its them but they seek you out so make sure you try to start a relationship with them. I know someone who did a very good job of this and got the job. Also, make sure for behavior you use STAR method. Always ask a question at the end of the interview.

    Sales Operations Leadership Development Program (SOLD) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Navistar in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Learned of this position through the campus career center. Went to an information session the night prior to the interview. The interview as quite intimidating. I've never been grilled like that before. It was a one on one interview with the manger of the Sales Operation Leadership Development program (SOLD). Proceeded to ask very particular questions and would also question my answers and say, "Well, why didnt you do this?" or "Did you consider this?...Why not?" At times I felt it went in circles. He was a tad rude, or that may just have been his cynical nature. He said someone would contact me that very night if I had received a second round interview or not. No reply. Emailed the next day and still no reply.

    I was contacted by a hiring manager after applying online. I had a phone interview when he called and he asked about my skills and interests. He said he would contact me again in a few days to set up an interview. He never called so I called him and we arranged to have my fly out for an interview. I flew to Chicago, had the interview the same day which lasted about 1.5 hours and flew home. I was contacted at the end of the next week.

    Inventory Planning Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warrenville, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warrenville, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Navistar in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    Navistar uses Lominger Core Competencies when interviewing. Research these competencies and be prepared to indicate a specific situation or task that demonstrates that competency, how you handled the situation, and the result of your actions to remedy the situation/problem you're describing.

    Interviews are conducted by multiple managers (as few as 3 and as many as 4 in my experience) and questions are asked round robin by the interviewers.

    Interview Questions
    • There isn't really a specific question that is difficult or unexpected (especially if you research the Lominger Core Competencies before the interview process) but if the core competency you're being asked about does not really pertain to your career history coming up with a specific example for that core competency can be difficult.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was called by HR with an offer and told an offer letter would be sent along with a drug screening kit and instructions for the drug screening/background check. Upon completion of the drug screening and background check I was called by my new manager to arrange a start date. Orientation lasted most of the first day of employment. I believe orientation sessions are only offered on certain days so if you don't start on one of those days you may not get orientation until your 2nd or 3rd day of employment.
