    Data Processor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lisle, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Navistar (Lisle, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed by 2 people in person and another via the phone. The interview didn't take place until about 15 minutes after the scheduled time since they were running late due to them jam packing the interviews in a day or in a certain timeframe. Asked a handful of situational questions. This was a temp job to last until Halloween. Never got a courtesy notice regarding if I got the position or not, not that I'm surprised these days from companies.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Navistar (Lisle, IL).

    Interview

    Very good. Very nice people. 3 Onsite interviews on the same day. The offer was not very good considering the living cost in Lisle and my experience. They do product development of the entire line of trucks and the testing facility is about 35 minutes away in Mel Rose park.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Navistar (Lisle, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for the position in January 2016. Finally heard from an internal recruiter in late March. An in-person interview was scheduled with two team members, which featured situational and other standard questions. Followed up after two weeks of not hearing anything. No news. This went on for two more months until they informed me that the role would be changing. Nearly seven months passed from the time I applied to the day I was informed the position had been filled.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Navistar (Lisle, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I got a call from the company to set up a first round Skype interview. The first interview was fairly easy. They asked two behavioral questions and one technical question on how the financial statements relate to each other. I then got a call within 30 minutes after the first interview to schedule a second round. The second round interview was a little bit more intense, but was still fairly easy. It was a four hour process with a mixer in the morning, a 45 minute behavioral interview and a case study which dealt with forecasting and net working capital.

    Company uses STAR technique: Situation, Task, Action, Result and what have you learned from it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Navistar (Melrose Park, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The whole experience was a waste of time. The plant is literally 1 MM square feet and I arbitrarily walked through mediocre laboratories which didn't have any happy employees. The interview was full of situational-based questions, but what it all comes down to is that they want you to be a nerd who has worked on engines their entire life.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Navistar (Lisle, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I connected with the company at an academic career fair and was offered a pre-screen interview the next day. After that, I was contacted about an on-site interview in Lisle and went a week or two later. The on-site included dinner the night before and a tour of the facility along with three interviews with different teams of two people. They took three weeks between interview and offer, which is way to long for a company of that size.
