    Product Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lisle, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Navistar (Lisle, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted through one of their internal recruiters about the position. Quick phone interview with recruiter just to cover my experience and make sure I was qualified for the position at hand. Offered an in person interview and sat with the team lead, department lead, and department director at once. Interview went smooth, definitely caught me off guard with a couple questions, but they were just being thorough. Was offered the position but turned it down to a discrepancy between recruiters advertised salary (what i was looking for) and final offer salary (no increase from my current position). Overall a good and painless exercise and would consider the opportunity to interview for another position with them in the future.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Navistar (Lisle, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Extensive. They have a mixer which I thought was creepy. They have everyone meet and they offer wine and beer and then they watch you to see how you interact. Then the next day you meet we two sets of people. The first set of people ask you questions regarding a case study and the second set of people ask you behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Educational Questions: All about CASH. They want to know how Navistar can maintain a large amount of cash flow so it looks good to creditors/investors. How would you do this? Probably bc Navistar lost all their government contracts and hasn't shown a profit in a few years ....yikes.

      Behavioral: All based on LEADERSHIP. They want to see if you are confident. Its all a joke. I know of the people employed here and I am AMAZED with how this company is still afloat. Basically they want to know you perform in certain scenarios.   1 Answer
