Engine Test Technician Interview

Engine Test Technician
Melrose Park, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Navistar in March 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted in January for the position and was a current employee of the company at a seperate location. In February there was a phone interview, followed by a in person panel interview, which Navistar paid for my airfare.

Reason for Declining – I intially accepted the offer and then had to go back on my acceptance, after being offered a better paying job a a different company.

Engineering Interview

The process took a day - interviewed at Navistar in January 2009.

Interview Details – Relatively easy interview. Initial interview portion was a panel interview with questions more pertaining to my experience rather than typical "tell us about a time when you _______." After answering a few questions they really began showing me around the place as if I already accepted the offer and was planning to start the next day. I was extended an offer a few days later, but declined after my current employer intervened and gave me a counter offer to stay with them.

Interview Question – Why are you looking to leave your current employer?   Answer Question

Melrose Park, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Navistar in May 2011.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a hiring manager after applying online. I had a phone interview when he called and he asked about my skills and interests. He said he would contact me again in a few days to set up an interview. He never called so I called him and we arranged to have my fly out for an interview. I flew to Chicago, had the interview the same day which lasted about 1.5 hours and flew home. I was contacted at the end of the next week.
