    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Generac Power Systems (Waukesha, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The phone interview was to get a sense of my personality, skill sets, and work history. The questions were what you would expect, e.g. “Describe your roles and responsibilities at X Company”. Then there was an in-person interview recapping the phone interview and asking questions correlating the responsibilities and what is expected from the role. It was all straight forward.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Generac Power Systems (Milwaukee, WI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview. It was with a screener from HR. We seemed to have a good exchange. When it was done, they said there would be a follow up call with the hiring manager, and then I never heard from them again. Even when I tried to contact them, and left messages, they didn't call back.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Generac Power Systems.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email a few weeks later to set up a phone interview with the recruiter. The questions were pretty typical interview questions, nothing too unexpected. At the end of the call, I was offered an on-site interview, which we set up for the next week. The on-site interview included 3 separate one-on-one interviews with people I would be working with, mostly reviewing my resume and talking about the position and the recruiter told me to expect to hear back by the end of the week. I was offered the position later that day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Generac Power Systems (Waukesha, WI) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I first met with HR and Nancy Tonkin, who is now retired. They went over the general job overview and asked me a series of questions. They had me shadow an employee with that specific job title, so I could get the feel for the job and what it entails. Afterwards I met with Nancy Tonkin again! She looked over my resume and talked to me about my sales background. We decided interviewing for Dealer Acquisitions would be a better fit. I interviewed with Ronie Jaeger and went through the same process!

    Interview

    Tell me about yourself style with very unstructured style. Met with multiple people over two rounds of interviews. Each interviewer had a different style and no one used an interview packet so far as I could tell. This was born out when I started doing interviews later for roles in our department
