At Navistar, brilliant engineering is our competitive advantage. From mechanical and
electrical engineering to foundry, aerodynamics and acoustics, our engineers are
continually setting new industry standards. And whether they’re responsible for
designing, prototyping, developing, validating, modifying or upgrading, their impact
goes far beyond our P&L margins. In fact, the lives of the nation’s children
(buses), the goods of its economy (trucks and engines) and the security of its
troops (military/defense vehicles) depend, in part, upon their work.
So we look for more than talent. Though our engineering opportunities span all
experience levels – from college internships to senior-level roles – and virtually
all engineering disciplines, the shared ground for each of our engineers is a
genuine dedication to innovation and continual improvement.
Finance & Accounting
Professionals with an aptitude for numbers – and how they reflect upon divisional
projects and overall corporate strategy – are integral to our success. Our
accounting and finance professionals are responsible for planning and forecasting,
for compliance and continuous improvement. They are savvy in manipulating data to
uncover new business opportunities and participate in divisional budgeting. In
short, they’re accountable for more than month-end closes. Meanwhile, there’s
greater opportunity to explore their fullest potential.
We seek professionals who recognize this as a rewarding trade-off. Opportunities are
available for interns and for people newer to the workforce (explore our Finance &
Accounting Leadership Development program).
For those in earlier stages of their sales careers, we offer a comprehensive,
two-year development program that provides superior training and exposure to the
inner workings of Navistar, its product lines, distribution channels, retail
transactional environment, and dealership operation. For those more seasoned in
their sales careers, we provide diverse opportunities in strategic growth, national
accounts, and division sales.
At Navistar, operations professionals are empowered to take their talents, knowledge,
and ideas and apply them to innovative, large-scale projects that have a lasting,
positive effect on our nation’s quality of life. To the experienced operations
professional, we offer opportunities to expand skill sets, implement leadership
capabilities, collaborate with other bright minds, arrive at ingenious
transportation solutions, and advance in intriguing new directions.
For those in the earlier stages of their careers, we invest significant time and
resources in our various development programs to produce professionals fully
schooled in our business and ready for management. Our Operations Management
Development Program provides 6-month rotations through Engineering, Manufacturing,
Product Development, Materials Management, and Purchasing & Logistics and gives
exposure to suppliers, dealers, customers, and cross-functional, internal
organizations. However, our operations opportunities do not end there. We provide a
full suite of careers in warehousing and distribution at all levels – solid careers,
At Navistar, information technology drives our organization forward. Whether
maintaining critical infrastructures; designing innovative, scalable and integrated
systems; or developing IT strategies, standards, methodologies and models, our IT
professionals impact the Navistar enterprise in fundamental ways. We believe in
empowering our systems people – to uncover better solutions – and we invest heavily
in both their professional development and the latest technology innovations so they
derive the greatest possible satisfaction from their work.
Moving our products according to just-in-time (JIT) best-practices requires superior
Supply Chain and Logistics division talent. Because this is such a critical aspect
of our product offering, we rely on the abilities of a wide variety of
professionals. Experienced individuals can take the lead in perfecting existing
processes and explore the potential for new, more efficient methods. They have
access to comprehensive training and advancement programs, global resources, and
well-defined career paths.
More recent graduates who are perfecting their skills can participate in two
separate development programs – OMDP and PLDP – that touch on complementary elements
of the overall function and prepare newer workers for management-level
opportunities. And these opportunities are as broad as the exposure participants
receive. Once the program is complete, they can follow their passions and join up
with divisions that matter most to them. For college students, we offer dynamic
internships, while seasoned professionals enjoy numerous leadership opportunities
that challenge even as they reward.
Our marketing professionals strategize and analyze, conceptualize, communicate, and
compel. Wherever the Navistar name is known, there has been significant talent
behind the awareness – and we’re known virtually everywhere through our various
Perhaps the best part is that our products already enjoy powerful market share –
where outstanding technology and innovation make their own arguments. Our marketing
teams simply shepherd the promises of the products themselves. This takes
discernment and savvy, however, and no ordinary number crunching or turn of phrase
will get this vital responsibility accomplished. We seek grounded, yet creative
professionals who have the business acumen to enhance our leadership stature.
From change management to sourcing and employee relations, our Human Resources team
is responsible for our organization’s most valuable asset – our people.
Organizationally, we understand that without people who ascribe to our values and
can live them out before internal and external customers alike, we simply have
talent. And while that matters, it is not everything. We look for right-fit talent.
We also offer the kinds of programs and rewards that make a meaningful difference to
those we serve – to our people and our customers. This takes professional insight
and a commitment to grow our organization from the inside out.
That’s where you come in.
