    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Navistar.

    Interview Details

    Met the recruiter at the career fair at school. He called me later that night to set up the interview for the next day so it was a very quick turnaround. The interview was a 2-on-1 consisting of mostly basic behavioral questions, specifically about ethics and handling a problem. There was also a technical question about how the balance sheet income statement and statement of cash flows are related and a question about working capital.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Navistar in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Talked to the recruiter at my university's career fair on Thursdays and that night was called to set up an on campus interview for Friday. The recruiters I interviewed with were current FALD members and recent graduates of my university. They asked me about 5 questions in the standard STAR format. I screwed up the technical question but if i had gotten it right they had an MBA question I could have tried. There was an ethics question and then a technical question at the end. Overall there was a very quick turn around and I will find out if I got a 2nd interview within a week of the initial contact.

    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.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Navistar.

    Interview Details

    Overall impressed with organization of the interview process. Pretty standard: they came to the career fair and then did interviews two weeks later. They only invited 30 or so to the final round interview, but there were 3 there from my school. Diversity seems to be a focus - I don't think any of us were alike in any way other than our major. They did a huge dinner at a bar in downtown Naperville for top candidates, which was the best event I attended across all companies. Everyone was friendly and seems like a good place to work.

    Interview Questions
    • Very intense second interview, with technical questions in Excel and a case study about working capital.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Navistar in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial 1st round interview with two people. Very easy, it appeared they were mostly looking for a personality fit within the organization.

    2nd round interview much more intense. Whole process takes about 6 hours, you'll meet about a dozen people. 1 case study, 1 excel test, 1 behavioral interview, 1 technical interview, 1 hr lunch with current FALDs

    Everybody was extremely friendly and outgoing. They made me feel welcome.

    Business case is about working capital. Includes inventory valuation, COGS, ways cash can be increased or decreased due to certain business factors. Know about inventory turnover, liquidity ratios, plant capacity, just in time inventory processes, as well as high level business strategy.

    Talked to recruiter on campus during career fair. Applied to job posting (submit resume, and applied online at company site). Got a first round interview on campus. Interview was about 30 mins or so. Mostly behavioral, with one or two basic accounting concept questions. Got a call back the next day with an invitation for second round.

    Was called back with decision on the same day at night (very fast turnaround)

    People were very friendly, and very open.
