    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hendrickson International (Canton, OH).

    Recruited by an outside recruiter. Process took about 2 weeks to set up interviews with Hendrickson HR and directors. Interviewed with several directors and VP.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hendrickson International.

    Interview

    The first thing was a computer test on excel to see if you had basic skills. It was a standard test. Highlight specific rows and columns. Insert numbers then get a sum. Very simple if you have used excel. Then it was your basic interview questions. Past work experience, where do you see yourself in 5 years etc. The key to doing well is studying the job description and brushing up on all of the terms used in it because that is what they are going to inquire about.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hendrickson International.

    Interview

    I didn't apply for any job with them, they saw my profile and initiated communication. In person interview went very unprofessional hr showed up 10mins late , technical was flat.
    Interviewers were not prepared at all. They were going through the resume for the first time. They were more interested in what my company was doing, I doubt if there was ever even position open.
    Low energy levels of the interviewers.

    Materials Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hendrickson International (Canton, OH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I did not apply for this position, their HR found my resume on-line and contacted me to see whether I am interested. I liked the job description and agreed to attend an on-site interview.

    They were more interested in what I am currently doing and what technical secrets they can take out of you, since they know you want the job and they would play with you to get more and more information on technical issue. I stopped the panel who asked about my current role and how I address technical challenges that are related to their business, be careful with these people.

    I personally think before calling me for the interview they had selected their own candidate and the reason for inviting me was first to access some technical information and second to show there is a competition, it was a show, no lunch treat, which is a norm for candidates who come from another state, very poor communication and professionalism, I read similar reviews from another job candidate with this company who has been played by them several times. I am happy I was not selected since these people are not trustworthy and reliable. I wish I had declined their invitation for the on-site interview after I read similar review from another job seeker on glassier.com, be careful and do not let them to play with you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hendrickson International in March 2015.

    Interview

    First of all they have been reposting the same jobs every 3 months for about a year. So I finaly got a call from a Human Resources rep after contacting an outside recruiting firm. I think they are interviewing other people to gain information on goverment vehicle programs in the hopes of getting new buisness from other companies as stated in another interview. So I talk to human resources and they start grilling me on changing jobs when im doing consulting work on contract for much better vehicle OEMs. Well thats as far as it went. My gut says to not trust them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hendrickson International (Canton, OH) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The overall process was fairly simple. Hendrickson management was very interested in class projects and any events that required team work and leadership skills. The interview process was easy, however, nothing at this company happens quickly. Expect to wait a couple weeks to hear back. I already accepted another position before I got the call from Hendrickson.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woodridge, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hendrickson International (Woodridge, IL).

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR Rep was very standard and easy. On site interview was scheduled for 1 hour each with 4 different people. It makes for a long day and eating lunch while trying to be at your best during the interview is quite awkward. They responded within a day that they wanted to move forward and I was given an offer and just a few days to respond.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a few very specific questions regarding material properties for a specific engineering material. This is the type of information that is easily referenced from a book or online and need not be memorized unless you are using it on a daily basis. I don't understand what they are trying to accomplish by asking this.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate the salary a little bit. They were not willing to negotiate at all on benefits.

    Master Scheduler Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Hendrickson International (Kendallville, IN) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Pre-screen, several phone interviews, in person interview with hiring manager and a direct report. Duplication of questions from both parties. Standard questions, task and experience related as well as reasons for previous position departures. They use an outside company for reference checking and that company representative seemed disinterested in the process.
