I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Trinity Industries in June 2010.

Interview Details – Interviews were well organized. Started with phone interview followed by two site visit interviews. The pay schedule is hard set for everyone other than executives so good luck negotiating.

Negotiation Details – there was no negotiation phase

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Clinton, IL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Trinity Industries in January 2014.

Interview Details – Waited over an hour before had interview in which I wasn't asked any questions....the interviewer just rambled on and on about himself. Wanted to also interview for another position but was advised to wait to see how first interview went and then if I didn't get that position then I could interview for the other. Well, I didn't get the first job and then was informed that the second position had already been filled. All this within two days of my first interview. I feel the HR individual screwed me out of any chance of working for Trinity.

Then a couple of days later, was called for a face to face interview with four managers (30 mins each). Still haven't heard back from local agency about weather or not I got the job or not, it's been 1 week. Oh well.

Internal Auditor Interview

Internal Auditor
Dallas, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Trinity Industries in June 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through a recruiter so she handled most of the communication, and did a fantastic job at it. I can only speak as to my experience with the interview:
- Initial Phone Screening - Spoke with the Director of Internal Audit and one of the Managers who tested my knowledge in Spanish. Very easy going, questions about my experience in audit, my experience with people etc...
- On Site Interview - I met with the Director of Audit, Staff Auditor, Manager, Controller, and CAO. All of them were beyond nice; shows the team is well organized and they all had prior Big 4 experience, so you would be working with competent people. Conversations were very easy going, "tell me a little about yourself", "what kind of audits you work on", "types of industries" etc... Nothing that really caught me off guard.

Interview Question – The toughest question came at the end of the on-site interview, the Director asked me how soon I could start. Having worked through a recruiter I was caught a little bit off guard since I hadn't heard about the exact conditions and didn't want to commit to an answer on the spot.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Internal Audit really was not the path for me, even though they mentioned opportunities in different departments it wouldn't be for at least 12-18 months and I didn't think Internal Audit was worth it.
