    Entry Level Engineering Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Navistar in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    First was an "interview" by the recruiter but this was more of a conversation than a interview. Asked me simple questions such as what I was interested in and if I would like to Navistar etc. I did not really have a phone interview and instead proceeded to go to a face to face group interview with 3 managers. They were very nice and only asked basic behavioral questions.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Navistar in March 2012.

    The HR personnel found me through CareerBuilder, contacted me and set up the interview. First round was phone, 2nd round/final is office visit. Got the offer within 3 or 4 day. Overall, it took me about 2 weeks from the first round until offer notification. First round questions pretty much about work experiences, how it relates to the position. Second round question were some general questions like behavorial, strength/weaknesses, why do you want to work for the company.

    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Warrenville, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Warrenville, IL
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Navistar in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The first contact was a phone call from HR with a follow-up/confirmation via email.
    The actual interview was with the dept manager and director - - 2 on 1. They both brought beverages into the small conference room, did not offer me a beverage nor did they offer to take my coat or a place to hang it up. The mgr said nothing while the director peppered me with questions for almost an hour, giving me no opportunity to ask questions of my own when the mgr declared time was up. Some of the questions were relating to a position I held 25 years ago (when the director was in grammar school). It was either a test of my memory or an exercise in humiliation.
    It was made emphatically clear that I was to wait for further contact from HR (read: don't call us, we'll call you).
    This is Navistar's m.o.
    Four gallons of gas, $6 in tolls and 3 hours of my life wasted on rude people. My theory is if an employer doesn't treat you well as an interviewee when they're trying to woo you, it certainly won't treat you well as an employee.

    Interview Questions
    • Neither the mgr nor the director had been with Navistar long enough to be entrenched in the STAR method, so the questions asked were just the usual.   Answer Question

    Had 1 hr long panel interview that consisted of all behavioral type questions. It was a very strict and direct interview, there wrote down all my answers.

    I feel like I could have done a better job on answering the questions asked.

    Note for future candidates, practice and ace the STAR interview technique. It is essential for Navistar Interviews.
