I applied online and 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.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Navistar.

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – 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
