    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oshkosh Corporation (Garner, IA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very typical...Segmented interviews starting with the plant manager followed by a hr manager, several shop managers, engineers, and a potential peer; followed up with a shop tour. All of the interviewers filled out pre-established interview questions. Interview questions were general...describe yourself, list your strength/weaknesses, etc. The facility was small enough that it was apparent that it was a very tight community. An extremely limited support staff was available. So a lot of flexibility is needed to support the two-shift plant.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Oshkosh Corporation in July 2014.

    Interview

    Completed application online; HR contacted me several days later and scheduled a phone interview; HR phone interview went great; hiring manager conducted phone interview about a week later; semi-harsh interview; no sense of humor; got the feeling right away that I didn't have the experience they wanted, so felt like the interview was a waste of time.

    Interview

    Résumé, Phone Interview, Manager Interview, Co-Worker Interview

    The HR Rep actually read the résumé before my phone interview, the manager was a little more hands off as far as technical skills but did a more 'human skills' interview, the co-worker interview focused on the technical side.

    The important thing for prospective interns to remember is that you are expected to be a learner, not a leader out the door. Even higher level contract employees have to get a grasp of what the environment is anywhere. Be calm, concise, and don't try to BS your way into a job.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary, but the technical questions can get in depth. Don't be afraid, they're just trying to figure out where to fit you. (I've done a couple myself now)   1 Answer

    Interview

    The selection process for interviews is rather lengthy, it can take more than a few weeks. Over all it is a good company to work for. Be sure you call your recruiter to make the process move a bit faster.

    Interview Questions

    Met with the company at my university career fair and got an interview the next week. It was a 1:1 interview that lasted about 40 minutes.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Oshkosh Corporation (Oshkosh, WI).

    Interview

    Applied online through a staffing agency. Had a phone interview and soon after I had a panel interview with four people. The interview was very standard. They were young professionals and being fresh out of college, I related well with them. Wasn't as nervous as my previous interview for companies- which I think was a great help. They used the STAR format for interview (Situation, Task, Action, Result) for a lot of questions. Thankfully, I had enough interviews to have some great situations in mind.

    Here's where it gets interesting. They told the recruiter that the interview went very well and that they were interested. But then I was told two weeks later that the position was put on an indefinite hold! Recruiter keeps checking back in, giving me updates and whatnot. Fast forward 5+ months later, they decide to directly hire me and bypass the temp-hire process.

    Although a positive interview experience, the entire hiring process took months. Frustrating, but was worth the wait.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Oshkosh Corporation (Dodge Center, MN) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Initial contacts from recruiter. I had 2 phone interviews with the hiring manager. I really had the impression they were ready to make a culture change to one of continuous improvement. Phone call with HR to discuss salary and benefits. On-site interviews with Directors in the organization individually (5 total) and a plant tour. Company paid for round-trip flight and hotel stay. Interviews consisted of a combination of scripted questions given to them by HR and personal questions from the interviewer.

    Negotiation

    Discussed salary offer between myself, recruiter and HR. Offered position and salary over the phone by HR and then received an email with contract attached to fill out.
