Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springfield, OH
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Navistar (Springfield, OH) in September 2016.

Interview

I applied online with an employee referral. I received a phone informational interview about 1 week after applying and an invitation for an on sight interview 1.5 weeks following. So about a 2.5 week process. The interviewer met me in the lobby looking very unprofessional. She mentioned they only dress professionally when customers are visiting (I guess I was chop liver). She was friendly but could not find the proper interview location. The other interviewers on the panel trickled in and were very distracted and showed little interest in the interview. They seemed very scattered and disjointed as a whole. The facility was run down, old, in middle of literally NO WHERE. The pay for the position was sub par. They are looking for hard laborers not analytical engineers going by the interview questions. I was not impressed, totally disengaged and checked out a quarter of the way into the interview. I couldn't wait for it to be over.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Navistar.

    Interview

    Behavior based interview. Using Star format. Interviewed by three people in the department. Some of the questions were unanswerable if you did not have a lot of prior on the job experience in the particular field. Questions were read off a sheet of paper, the basic STAR interview questions, can most likely be found online.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a hiring manager after applying online. I had a phone interview when he called and he asked about my skills and interests. He said he would contact me again in a few days to set up an interview. He never called so I called him and we arranged to have my fly out for an interview. I flew to Chicago, had the interview the same day which lasted about 1.5 hours and flew home. I was contacted at the end of the next week.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Navistar (Lisle, IL) in June 2009.

    Interview

    One phone interview, two in person interviews. First in person inteview occured on a Saturday and I had to drive 200 mile to get there. No help from Navistar for hotels or mileage. Questions very high level and indicated managers lack of knowledge about fundamental concepts. Second interview was with three people. All of them told me to not take the job unless I had no other alternatives.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult or unexpected questions, but all iterviews were a bit odd   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They made me a low ball offer. I countered and ultimately got a signing bonus, 5K more per year.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Navistar (Melrose Park, IL) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Relatively easy interview. Initial interview portion was a panel interview with questions more pertaining to my experience rather than typical "tell us about a time when you _______." After answering a few questions they really began showing me around the place as if I already accepted the offer and was planning to start the next day. I was extended an offer a few days later, but declined after my current employer intervened and gave me a counter offer to stay with them.
