    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oshkosh Defense (Oshkosh, WI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and was contacted within a week to set up an interview. The interview was panel style with 3 supervisors, the company recruiter, and the current Sales Administrator. The interview lasted about 45 minutes and consisted mainly of all 5 people asking me about my past experience and how it would relate to the position I applied for. Everyone on the panel seemed engaged and easy to get along with and I felt comfortable throughout the entire interview.

    As I left I was told I would get a call the following week with their decision. It ended up taking over a week and I received a generic rejection email.

    Pricing Analyst Interview

    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Oshkosh Defense.

    Interview

    Came across the booth set up by them at on campus job fair, kinda talked a while by the booth with the hiring manager and got a phone call at the night and called in for a on campus interview the next day. Started with the "tell me about yourself" question followed with several typical behavioral questions, like "what're your strengthens and etc". No quite difficult question in the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Personally speaking it's the behavioral question about the weakness, have no idea how to make connection of this with the job, i guess i should just prepare myself a little bit more and do some digging forehead next time.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oshkosh Defense (Oshkosh, WI).

    Interview

    There was a multi-stage interview process beginning with an online application submission through the company website and culminating in a personal interview just two weeks later. This happened to be during a very busy hiring period as the company prepared to fulfill a rather large contract.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your plans for the future? Any future goals outside of this company?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Non-existent. As a union employee, salary and benefits are pre-determined according to contract.

    Training Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Oshkosh Defense.

    Interview

    It was possibly the most unorganized recruitment that I've been through. The hiring manager did not show up for our scheduled interview, so it was re-scheduled to be a phone interview (3rd one). She then called me an hour later than the scheduled phone interview (not so much as a "sorry for being late"). She then tells me she will let me know their decision the following week. Three weeks later, I get an e-mail from HR telling me the position had been cancelled.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oshkosh Defense (Oshkosh, WI) in July 2009.

    Interview

    The interview was really more about checking the personality and asking questions that verify the experience and education. The HR group acted professional, and coordinated the interview visit well. One of the managers did not free up enough time for the interview, but it still worked out okay.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing too unexpected, quite a few questions on behavior and "what would you do?"   Answer Question

    Good relocation package, low vacation, low salary. No movement from company on offer.
