    Control Systems Engineer Interview

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

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Navistar in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty fast. Guess they were urgent to find one fill the position. The interviewer asked several general questions. I failed for another interview from another company before this one, but I prepared well for this one. The key point for interview is to make other people understand your past work even though they didn't know it well. i did that for this 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.

    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.

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

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Navistar in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    One phone interview, two in person interviews. First in person inteview occured on a Saturday and I had to drive 200 mile to get there. No help from Navistar for hotels or mileage. Questions very high level and indicated managers lack of knowledge about fundamental concepts. Second interview was with three people. All of them told me to not take the job unless I had no other alternatives.

    • No difficult or unexpected questions, but all iterviews were a bit odd   Answer Question

    They made me a low ball offer. I countered and ultimately got a signing bonus, 5K more per year.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Navistar in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Relatively easy interview. Initial interview portion was a panel interview with questions more pertaining to my experience rather than typical "tell us about a time when you _______." After answering a few questions they really began showing me around the place as if I already accepted the offer and was planning to start the next day. I was extended an offer a few days later, but declined after my current employer intervened and gave me a counter offer to stay with them.
