    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lisle, IL

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Navistar (Lisle, IL).

    Interview

    While I believe most applicants have a phone screening, my process moved directly to an in-person interview. The process was very straightforward. I was interviewed by three people for a little over an hour. I was asked standard behavioral interview questions ("describe a time when...") and standard STAR-format answers were more than sufficient.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about a time that you had to combine different data sets. What was the context and what tools did you use?   Answer Question
    • Have you ever had too few tasks to fill your time at work? How did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Supply Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Navistar (Warrenville, IL).

    Interview

    Questions are asked by a panel and responses are requested in a STAR (Describe the Situation or task, Actions you took, Results from those actions and what you learned) format. Question topics included Negotiation, Communication, Organizational Agility, Customer Focus and Comfort around Higher Management. You may have a phone screen followed by an onsite interview with a panel of managers and peers. If they are interested in you, the next phase is to meet with several of their directors and that was one at a time for me. So meeting with the directors required several return trips to their facility. For me it was a total of four trips before an offer was given and negotiating started. From start to finish the process was more than 3 months until a final agreement was achieved.

    Interview Questions

    • What types of negotiating skills have you used? Describe a time when you used one of these techniques. From whom did you learn these skills?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase is very long and tedious. They like immediate responses from you but may take weeks or even a month to respond to you. I feel it expected of you to negotiate, however, and looked down upon if you don't.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with 3 employees. My interview was with a team leader, HR rep and the main quality engineer. It was a little intimidating at first but changed once we were all chatting like best friends. In order for me to be considered for an interview, I had to serve time as a temporary worker through a temporary staffing agency. Those who put forth their best effort in work ethic and attendance while being great with quality was considered first for interviewing.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Navistar.

    Interview

    Scripted and long. Each manager had a packet with them and were assigned a group of questions to ask you. It seemed that they did want to be there doing it and waited for it to be done. Although, the managers were attentive to your responses.

    I was asked the normal engineering interview questions. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Why are you qualified for this position? Etc. After completion of the interview I was called by the hiring manager with an offer, and after accepting the job I had to consent a drug screen and background check.
