    Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, CT (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. 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 Questions
    • Nothing unusual, all the questions were pretty generic   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation. Pretty much take it or leave it.
