Interview Details – The first interview was a phone interview with six people and lasted one hour and forty five minutes. The people were very nice and by the end they stated that they would update the website with were you are i.e.: moving forward, not being considered. They also mentioned that it would take a month from this interview to move forward with the next. After a month I called them and they stated they are close to hiring the Controller. So that was miss leading because they never update my profile and I was waiting for an answer back before I accepted other offers. I would still loved to go to work for this company.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Volvo Construction Equipment in March 2012.
Interview Details – Had a phone interview with the recruiter from an outside firm who then forwarded my information on to the supervisor at Volvo. Had a phone interview with him. Flew down for an in person interview a few weeks later (time delay because he was traveling and I wasn't in a rush). Interviewed with Supervisor and two other people in the position I would be in to see if I would work in the group dynamic. Interviewed with Director of Sales and Director of HR as well. Had lunch, saw the machines and headed home. Volvo covered all my costs for the flight and hotel. The interview was actually useful. It wasn't scripted, it wasn't a personality test. It was just a nice conversation about what I've done and what experiences I've had and where I want my career to go.
Negotiation Details – I was negotiating through a recruiting agency since they were the ones that originally found me. I simply showed them what I was currently making, cost of living estimates, raise estimates, ETC and told them they need to make it work my while to move, and they did.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Volvo Construction Equipment in September 2010.
Interview Details –
initial phone interview with an HR person and a purchasing manager. Fairly formatted questioning. Didn't go well, so I was surprised to get an invite to meet in person. Volvo paid up front for air fare and hotel but I had to pay out of pocket for rental car. To date I have NOT been reimbursed, despite faxing and mailing proper documentation for reimbursement. I could have found a rental car for a lot less than the one they booked for me.
They were looking for someone from a large corp background and that wasn't me.

Interviewed at Volvo Construction Equipment
Interview Details – There was one interview in which the interviewer asked a lot about what exactly total quality management was. The interviewer explained the job really well, however, kept assuming that I had more questions for him. I think that asking questions in an interview is very important but in this one it was definitely crucial in order to let the interviewer truly believe that you understand what the job entails.
