    Purchasing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chattanooga, TN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Komatsu (Chattanooga, TN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Met with HR and Hiring Managers. HR Manager was very amiable and easy to talk to. Hiring Manager didn't seem to want a conversation but merely to ask behavioral questions. No professional/skill type questions ... only the behavioral type questions. Told I was the first candidate and their process would take 4-8 weeks. Also told an internal person was interviewing for the job as well. Based on that statement and the fact that the position was open due to internal movement, I did not expect an offer. I was told about 2 weeks later they were going with someone else.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Komatsu.

    Interview

    It was obvious the interviewers were pressed for time and stressed. As a former interviewer, I felt the enviroment was somewhat unprofessional. There were no prepared questions. My perception is the interviewers were looking for personality mesh versus past experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Komatsu (Salt Lake City, UT) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Received a phone call to setup a time for in person interview. Interviewed with two managers and went over some behavioral questions and what kind of responsibilities I have in my current position.
    The managers interview took an hour and they went over what kind of person they needed for the role.

    I met with the recruiters/HR and interviewed with them for another hour. All the questions were behavioral and what kind of environment I like to work in.

    A few days later I got a phone call to interview with the CFO in person.

    Interview with CFO was in depth accounting skills that I use in my current workplace, etc.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rolling Meadows, IL
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Komatsu (Rolling Meadows, IL).

    Interview

    Started with a face to face interview with 3 Komatsu employees. Some behavioral questions, some loaded questions about whether I would fit in with the culture and enjoy the work. After that interview I met face to face with 2 more people. They had no questions for me so I did my best to fill up the 30 minutes with questions about the position which they would answer in 2 sentences or less. Was told they would get back to me within a week - no response at all. Very unprofessional. All the people seemed pretty arrogant. They did say there was a lot of room for growth and sort of get to set your own hours.
