    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Timken in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Timken treats you well. Hotel, flight, food, etc is all done for you. Thursday night had a social to meet and greet Timken employees. Mostly people trying to make an impression on people who might be interviewing you. Interview consisted of 2 1:1 and 1 panel. First 1:1 was good. Interviewer was nice and engaged. Second Interviewer was terrible. Sarcastic, didn't really lead the interview, didn't really answer any of my questions, simply one word answers. Panel interview was ok. By then, pretty burnt out. Two members of the panel were good, last guy seemed disinterested, apathetic. Questions focused on relevant experience, course work, etc. Didn't ask too many behavioral questions. Finished with a plant tour and a tour of their technology facility.

    Overall, good experience. Interview process was difficult only because the two interviewers mentioned seemed disinterested, condescending, etc.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Timken in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    It was a behavioral interview, with a focus on answers to hypothetical questions. There were four or five other individuals taking turns with the questions. As most behavioral interviews go, the questions were generally pointless. I made it a point to make eye contact, and to address all the individuals with my answers, not just the questioner. This was a very successful approach for me.
