Supply Chain Specialist (Former Employee) – Cherokee, AL – May 17, 2017
Great opportunity to be part or a new startup plant. Unfortunately the company did not do well in the time I was there and I had taken a severance package. I wish I was there longer to give more info but enjoyed the time I had.
Plant staff needs to be replaced with managers that can coach, train and mentor instead of threatening and intimidating lower level management. Each day supervisors are worried about keeping their jobs, living in constant fear.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Cherokee, AL – May 5, 2017
The management that recently left had no idea of what it took to run efficiently and still produce the required product, while reducing waste. Now that I am gone, I here they have replaced the obvious thorns in Navistar's side and are doing much better
Decent pay for this area
No job security, as Navistar has a reputation for replacing experienced hands with temp.. when the temps time is up, they can leave or start over. This happens for years for sme people.
Internal Auditor (Former Employee) – Lisle, IL – April 19, 2017
There is a reason why this company underwent so many restructuring. I wish they valued and respected their employees more than how they are now. The company itself has a great history and value that they are trying to built in, but seems like the operation is not efficient.
Activities in company
Team bonding, Workplace Culture, Leadership, Management, Work/Life Balance
Manager of Operations (Former Employee) – Lisle, IL – April 12, 2017
Every one was stressed all the time. Celebrates breaking even or only coming in short by a few million dollars short a quarter.
Hire a ton of people out of college let the senior management and high performers walk. Then they put on hiring holds. Promotion from with in only to leadership spots is unhealthy due to top talent leaving. Like an inbreeding cesspool with no new talent coming in to management positions. Hopefully a buy out by VW is soon.
Two group of people: People holding on to retire and get the benefits from 20 years ago
People who no other company would hire into higher roles sticking around
Never a dull day
stressful, unsupportive leadership, in survival mode
Driver/Laborer (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – April 2, 2017
The pay and overtime is great! Management is terrible. They get nothing done. They also have a hard time keeping clients. The plant is running out of money and they have a lot of down weeks and layoffs.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – March 29, 2017
I didn't know them from at all. They gave use little to no information on where we were going or what we would be doing other than we would be working in the HR department helping them out with Administration duties.
Senior Dealer Parts Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Warrenville, IL – March 29, 2017
Navistar was the first real job that I had, and working for such a large company allowed me to really learn the different aspects of the business world. I was allowed to see how a large corporation ran and what the benefits and disadvantages were. I have been able to take that knowledge with me as I continue my career.
Payroll Manager (Current Employee) – Lisle, IL – March 29, 2017
An individual has the ability to learn a lot and progress if they so chose to, or become and expert in their current role. The company offers a lot of opportunity to get involved in project work and work on cross functional teams.
ADVANCE MANUFACTURING ENGINEER (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – March 28, 2017
The hardest part of the job is to keep up with all the assignments managers want you to have done yesterday. This is my first real job after college and I think it is a good place to get a lot of experience.
Diesel Technician (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 27, 2017
A typical day at work was consistent and challenging. Much was expected of you but much was given in return. The management of my division cared for the employees and I feel tried very hard to help us all accel in life and work. Although the work itself could be mentally and physically exhausting I never felt undervalued or taken advantage of. Unfortunately they had to relocate my division and I couldn't follow.
Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – March 21, 2017
Great people who could make a great company if they were allowed to Attention to work life balance, company culture and employee growth Unfortunately the company suffered from multiple bad decisions by upper management
Supply Manager (Current Employee) – Lisle, IL – March 16, 2017
It all depends which manager you are under. If you are in a good pocket, it's not too bad. If not, your life can be difficult there. Since the finance is not good, you are under high cost saving pressure day in and out.
Accounting Support Processor (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – March 9, 2017
Navistar's pay is more than most local companies, but the management, organization, and professionalism is horrible. They're always telling employees business is not good, making silly budget cuts, yet they sure pay the horrible managers well.
Work fast to meet policies rate for inbound and outbound.
Warehouse Asociate (Former Employee) – North Las Vegas, NV – February 23, 2017
Good place to work at if your a "do what ever it takes"person. Seems like they care more about the numbers then the people working there. Work lots of overtime. People there are great but policies make it hard to do the right thing. Seems like a dead end job.
