They had both had experience in the job I was applying for, so they both gave a great description of what the job would be like on a daily basis. I was one of the first to interview for the job, so I was told I wouldn't hear back for a few weeks.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Supervisor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Komatsu (Witbank, Mpumalanga (South Africa)) in February 2010.

    Interview

    An employee phoned me asking to work for komatsu. I told her that I had no experience. She informed me that it would be addressed and they would send me for training. I went for the interview. They perused my CV, acknowledged that they would send me for the relevant training to be able to do the work. I was later informed that there was a dispute as the position was not advertised internally. I had already resigned from my current job. Luckily I was still hired after another 2 months from the interview. The interview was not difficult as I had to just comfirm all that was on my CV.

    Interview Questions

    • How I knew about the position., It was difficult to answer as I did not know about the position, as it was offered to me. I did not know what was arranged and what was said to the management and HR. I could not talk about the position as I knew nothing about it. Had no experience. But was told that they would train me.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offered a good salary, said there would be overtime paid, and that I would be trained in the position. Overtime was not paid, training never happened, I had to find out everything from other branches and ask questions, google etc.
