I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Timken in August 2008.

Interview Details The hiring process is initiated by HR reprentative by informing the candidate about getting shortlisted for job position and confirming the date of interview. Interview process may be divided in two or three phases depending on job position. There will be Technical, HR and Manager rounds which can happen in a single/multiple day. Technical rounds are very important. Depending on the performance in this round the candidate will be called for other rounds. In Techical round candidate should try to be as precise as possible.

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.
