Design Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

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

Interview

Standard college entrance interview questions. Experience with automotive was limited coming out of college. Company was expanding at a rapid growth rate and large number of engineers entered simultaneously into the company. The initial interview was an engineering recruiter on site at the university. Subsequently, you were called into an onsite interview at a Navistar facility. This interview resulted in a decision that was made before the end of the visit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Navistar (Tulsa, OK) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was straight forward and quite simple. I was a little nervous at first but after talking to the interviewers, they made me feel comfortable and i had a blast just talking about various things. After that, there was a tour of the bus making plant which was huge. Overall, a fun experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Navistar in November 2011.

    Interview

    Went in for a quick 30 minute interview with two people (a hiring manager and a project manager. They didn't specify if this was the project manager of the team I'd be working with, but I don't think so). A week later, they called and said they would extend me an offer.

    Full disclosure, I had an internship with them the summer before, so that probably explains the shorter than normal interview process (when I walked in for the full-time interview, they commented on the review my manager over the summer gave me). That internship interview consisted of solely recording my answers to interview questions (presented via a website I had to login to) with a webcam they mailed me.

    Interview Questions

    • They only asked very stereotypical questions. Just prepare for it like you would for any other interview. Nothing technical.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiated a higher salary pretty smoothly. I asked for a higher number, they gave me something that was 30% of the way between the initial offer and what I asked for, which was good enough for me.

    As general advice for all offers, just ask for a better offer in some way. Worst that would happen is they say no (they're not going to rescind an offer just because you asked for a higher salary/more benefits....). Best that could happen is that they say yes. Most likely, they'll counter negotiate.

    And learn some negotiating tactics, because that'll help you in a lot of cases, especially once you finally have the job.
