I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Generac Power Systems in September 2013.
Interview Details – Recruiter phone screen was ok. One of the first questions was if my salary expectations were in the upper 50's. Pretty low but I said yes and figured it would take longer to negotiate to a more reasonable number. The rest of the questions were typical questions about my resume and previous experience. Second interview was with a supervisor. This person seemed really disinterested and asked me questions like "tell me about your last position". Nothing technical and when I asked if they had any questions about past projects or work situations they said "no, that's okay".

Interview Details –
Let me be clear: I did not interview with anyone onsite. This is strictly a review of the phone screening I had with a recruiter. I want to help make interview candidates aware of what to expect.
I received a solicitation through a career website and agreed to speak on the phone with a recruiter. Things went well until I was asked what my current salary was and what I was expecting for a new position. When I gave them my salary expectation I was literally scoffed at. The recruiter almost laughed. I was then told for some time how I am not worth that amount of money and I need to rethink things. Needless to say, I did not receive a follow up phone call for an onsite interview.
By the way, I interviewed at another company the next week and received an offer for higher than what I told Generac my expected salary was. I won't have to wear a tie to work everyday as an engineer, either. I think they need to understand that in order to attract top talent they need to open the pocket book a little. From the reviews I have read, it seems like they need to do the same for their current employees.
Interview Question – Why Generac? View Answer
The process took a day - interviewed at Generac Power Systems in November 2011.
Interview Details – Simple, common questions like, "Describe yourself" and "Talk about a time when you ran into conflict and how you resolved it". Nothing that caught me off guard. I was interviewd by 3 people.
