    Product Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melrose Park, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Navistar (Melrose Park, IL) in February 2010.

    Positive Experience
    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.
