HSE Specialist Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Terex in September 2013.
Interview Details Initial interviews conducted by a recruiting firm. Slow to respond initially and I believe that the initial phone interview phase was the longest wait. After the initial "weeding" out process things went fairly quickly. I was asked to come to the local site and have an interview. It was a panel interview with the hiring manager and some HR folks. I was asked about my experience, asked about specific examples, and asked a few "routine" questions about EHS people in the field should know.
Negotiation Details – Not bad, tried to lowball somewhat on salary. In the end I got what I was asking.
Manufacturing Engineering Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Terex in May 2014.
Interview Details I applied through the Terex website and over a month later a representative from the HR department called me and wanted to set up an in-person interview. The interview was set for 11am and everyone was right on time. For my interview it was a team of 3 employees and they were all very personable and not intimidating at all. All they asked me was to take them through my resume and then they based their questions off what I said.
At this time I have not been offered the position but only 3 days have passed since the interview.
Interview Question – Most questions came directly from what I said about my resume, so know yours front to back and be prepared to talk in depth about your projects, ect. Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview
Sales/Marketing Management Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
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
