Brillion, WI

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Ariens.

Interview Details – Internal recruiter very knowledgeable about company needs and culture and was willing to provide insight into interviewers to prepare me. Company growing and understaffed, so everyone appears very busy. Despite that, interviews were scheduled in reasonable amount of time. Met three executives, one business unit lead, four team members. All very pleasant people, easy to talk to and consistently positive about company. Most questions were to clarify my resume, except for prospective teammates, who came very prepared with thoughtful questions. HR rep asked what other positions I was looking at in other companies, which was a welcome question and allowed me to relate my goals to the position I was interviewing for at Ariens. Asked several times about willingness to work in Brillion -- appears to be hurdle for talent acquisition.

Manufacturing Leader Interview

Manufacturing Leader

Interviewed at Ariens

Interview Details – Brought in for an interview, spent a few hours there interviewing with multiple people in operations. Best part was that the second round of interviews I was able to interview with Dan Ariens, he interviews all of the incoming hires!

Interview Question – They had asked me why I was interested in working for a manufacturing job, when I just wanted a job so I didn't have the best answer for that..   Answer Question

Executive Administrative Assistant Interview

Executive Administrative Assistant
Brillion, WI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Ariens in June 2012.

Interview Details – Recruiter didn't prepare me at all for the interview. The actual interview at the company dug deeper into my background and ended up disqualifying me for the job. Ariens says they are all about their values/ethics but when I was politely and respectfully honest with them regarding my previous employer, the recruiter called to tell me I was 'too honest'...

Interview Question – Simply asked about my history in various positions I've held over the years. Wanted to know more about the people I'd worked with in the past than the skills and personality I brought to the job.   Answer Question

National Sales & Marketing Manager Interview

National Sales & Marketing Manager
Oxford, England (UK)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Ariens in July 2012.

Interview Details – Took personality test online prior to any interview. The results of this are sent to the interviewers and they review before anything. Then had a phone call with executive team (one at a time, not all at once) after inquiring through email. I lived abroad so this made the most sense.

Interview Question – No unexpected questions - what Ariens do is have you take a preference/personality test before the interview. This is then matched with the preferences they think would work best for the jobs. You are then interviewed and the test is either confirmed to be good or bad, or you are able to change their opinions of who they think should be in the role based on your performance. Sounds more intense than it is and the interviews are generally very laid back.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Quick - I had another offer so presented that as what I needed in order to consider. They matched and exceeded that offer.
