    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Navistar in March 2012.

    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Warrenville, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Warrenville, IL
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Navistar in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The first contact was a phone call from HR with a follow-up/confirmation via email.
    The actual interview was with the dept manager and director - - 2 on 1. They both brought beverages into the small conference room, did not offer me a beverage nor did they offer to take my coat or a place to hang it up. The mgr said nothing while the director peppered me with questions for almost an hour, giving me no opportunity to ask questions of my own when the mgr declared time was up. Some of the questions were relating to a position I held 25 years ago (when the director was in grammar school). It was either a test of my memory or an exercise in humiliation.
    It was made emphatically clear that I was to wait for further contact from HR (read: don't call us, we'll call you).
    This is Navistar's m.o.
    Four gallons of gas, $6 in tolls and 3 hours of my life wasted on rude people. My theory is if an employer doesn't treat you well as an interviewee when they're trying to woo you, it certainly won't treat you well as an employee.

    Interview Questions
    • Neither the mgr nor the director had been with Navistar long enough to be entrenched in the STAR method, so the questions asked were just the usual.   Answer Question
