Constantly felt as if i was being grilled, Questions were excessively repetitive, Interviewers were not even in the the group I would be working for. Asked questions that were too personal. I had to explain my job history as if they had no idea it was a actual career path.

    Application Details

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Navistar in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    1 interview with a behavioral and technical question. The behavioral question was basic. Technical was: you have a bracket you need to put on a truck. Should it be made from steel or aluminum? The basis was to see your thought process and why/how you approached a solution.

    The process took a day - interviewed 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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Navistar in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Navistar in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interview was scheduled in advance but the one of the interviewers couldn't make it so was only interviewed by hiring manager. Manager seemed very interested and engaged in the department. However, the company recruiter was very demanding and pushy.
