    Interview was straight out of college for a rotational program and was primarily behavioral. There were a few engineering related questions but most revolved around leadership issues and project related issues.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Very little negotiation, partially because they offered more than I expected and partially because Navistar was not negotiating at the time.

    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.
