    Purchasing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at PACCAR in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    At first I received a phone call for an initial screening. The call went well and lasted about 30 minutes. About two months later, I was asked to fly out for a series of of final interviews. (Unfortunately they requested I pay my own travels, and since I only received a one week notice, the flight was very expensive.)
    When I arrived in Bellevue, I had a 3 hour stay at their corporate offices. I met with someone from HR, and then had 3 separate interviews with different managers. The culture there is definitely unique and not a fit for everyone, but they were very honest in answering any questions I had. Most of their questions to me were behavioral, or about my resume. They called me back the following day and extended an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • What in your past experience directly relates to the role you would play as an intern here?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Great company, but the culture didn't seem to fit me, and I found a better offer with a different company.
