Production Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Moses Lake, WA (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Terex in June 2012.

Interview Details Process was very long and drawn out from initial contact from recruiting service. Took many months between the time I phone screened for the position and the actual interview.

Interview Question – Wasn't any difficult or unexpected questions. Most of the questions revolved around situation you would encounter while supervising with a few about lean manufacturing.   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Sales/Marketing Management Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Bothell, WA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Terex in January 2011.

Interview Details I found a position through an on-line resource and applied, and was contacted by a recruiter (positive experience) and screened. Based on that I was set up with an interview with the company's general manager (positive experience) who wanted me to come back and interview with a group manager. I did, and that's where it turned ugly. During the interview, she made a comment about their sales force being comprised of "white guys in their late 50's counting down toward retirement." Full disclosure: I am also in the same age/demographic group, but extremely motivated and hardly slowing down.

She realized her slip immediately and froze up; I smiled, mentioned something about being able to work with all types, but it was evident that I was going to pay for her bias and the interview turned frosty-- game over. The clincher came the next day when the recruiter called me to tell me they'd selected another candidate and "it was a coin toss" as we were "that close." I thanked her, then checked the position the next week-- sure enough it had reopened; so much for the "coin toss" candidate who allegedly got the job.

The general manager who'd passed me along left the company a relatively short time later, and I am not surprised. I was familiar with the last company he worked with and am sure he's appreciated where he is now.

I have to say I am grateful for one thing: in doing volunteer work with other "mature workers" during this period, I used this experience as an example of what can happen during the job-seeking process so it turned out to be valuable.

Interview Question – The age-bias outburst was blatent and unexpected, and frankly offensive. I doubt an interviewer would have made a similar comment regarding race, religion or sexual preference.   View Answer

Electrical Engineering Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Redmond, WA (US)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Terex in October 2013.

Interview Details Applied through the college career website. Received contact in about a week. Had a phone interview where I was asked about my projects and the things I put on my resume. Then had another interview at their company. They told me I was the leading candidate, but in the end I did not get the position due to schedule conflicts.

Interview Question – Here's a schematic of one of our products that's not working. What's wrong with it? Feel free to use me (the interviewer) as a multimeter.   Answer Question

Project Engineer Interview

Project Engineer

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Terex in September 2013.

Interview Details After the usual telephone interview with the hiring manager (who would be my boss), was invited to a on-site interview. The process was very organized divided in 3 segments. First an additional interview with the hiring manager who also explained the complete process and what to expect. The second interview was with the engineering director with very interesting questions about my people management experience and engineering milestones. Finally an interview with what would be my peers which was the most engineering oriented one.
