    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Navistar in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I couldn't get my resume through their electronic system so I called a friend and asked them to give my resume to the hiring manager. Once the hiring manager reviewed it another manager called to have a brief conversation and to see if I was still interested. Once we discussed, a few weeks passed and I didn't think they were going to call again, then a got a call from an HR person setting up the interview and travel plans.

    Interview Questions
    • They use the Lominger Competencies so each person had a package that they were asking questions from such as" tell me about a situation where you had to act on something important before you had time to develop a good answer or solution: Then they were looking for STARS - Situation, Task, Action, Results and what did you learn. It was sometimes difficult to come up with a story for every competency.   Answer Question

    Manufacturing Resource Leader - Quality Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Springfield, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springfield, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Navistar in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their website. First phone interview was with an internal recruiter for the company. He was rude and not very personable at all. Argued with me about the number of years of experience required for the position (said it was more than what was in the job description). He didn't ask me any questions about my background. Only asked if I was aware of the location of the job and how far it was from me (1 hr). He seemed to have an attitude during the whole initial conversation. We set up a face-to face interview which was supposed to be with 3 people at the plant location. But later I ended up turning down the interview based on the negative interaction with the recruiter.

    Interview Details

    Interview process very standard, initial phone interview screen with talent acquisition, hiring manager interview and then 2 person panel interview for contract position. Initiated as contract to hire, since creation of new position can take months through the bureaucratic HR and multiple approvals between departments.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Navistar.

    Interview Details

    I met their recruiters at my university's career fair and was contacted the next day with an invitation for an on campus interview for the following week. I was informed that the interview would consist of several behavioral questions as well as one technical question. There were two interviewers, both of whom were young and very friendly. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and the behavioral questions were very basic, such as "Tell us about a time you had to work in a group with a difficult person." The technical question was, "What are the three main financial statements and how are they related?" I was called back 2 days later with the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • I thought the technical question was the most difficult only because I wasn't sure how detailed they wanted me to be and when I asked, they just said I could be as detailed as I wanted to be.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate.
