Technical Sales Representative Interview

Technical Sales Representative
Mississauga, ON

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Timken in May 2013.

Interview Details HR emailed me requesting a phone interview. The phone interview lasted approx 20 mins and it all went good and i was really positive but i didn't qualify for the next round. The interviewer was really nice and friendly. I think the competition was too high that's why i didn't get the offer

Leader Interview

Leader

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Timken in June 2011.

Interview Details It takes a while after the initial interview, just like any other company, before they call you. Then, everything goes easy but they will check everything on you including your references, your background and your medical history plus the drug screen process. The whole thing will take about one week, and you'll need to keep communicating with them during the whole process, just in case they can't contact your ex-employers, or your references. They will find out if you lied in the application, but if everything checks out okay, you've got the job. Good Company.

Interview Question – Regarding the particular job: Explain to me how you would accomplish this specific task and how long it would take me to finish?   View Answer

Machinist Interview

Machinist
Manchester, CT (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Timken.

Interview Details The on-site HR (OA as they like to say) people are really hard to get in touch with. It takes many people multiple phone calls/emails to get an interview even if you are being recommended by a current employee. Generally you start with a phone interview, then take an online test. After that you generally have a panel interview.

Interview Question – Nothing unusual, all the questions were pretty generic   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. Pretty much take it or leave it.

Global Engineering Systems Intern Interview

Global Engineering Systems Intern
North Canton, OH (US)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Timken in April 2012.

Interview Details Intern recruiter called me middle of the week to ask a couple screening questions (availability, checking information on resume etc.) The recruiter set up an phone interview for that Friday. Half hour interview on the phone with the hiring manager about my experience and asking me if I was interested in what he had in mind for the summer. Got a call back Monday from the recruiter to offer me a job. Since I was out of town they also offered a relocation bonus to live at the local university.

Interview Question – None   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – not very negotiable, they are VERY competitive plus offer the relocation bonus to cover living or to cover transportation for people outside of a 30 mile radius. There are also great intern activities and free lunches and you get a raise if you return the following year
