    Marketing Manager, Digital Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Milwaukee, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Harley-Davidson.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter contacted me and did a screening phone call. I was then brought in for an interview with two employees and brought back to meet with the GM of the business. The questions in the first interview were written on a document and left little time for a back and forth discussion -seemed relatively task specific, like boxes were being checked off. Was limited time for me to ask them questions.

    Interview Questions
    • With the GM, there were questions about philosophies vs tasks, which I appreciate as tasks can be taught but approach and attitude have a significant impact on performance.   Answer Question

    Casual Production Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menomonee Falls, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Harley-Davidson in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Extensive testing process (3 months) including physical testing, 32 hours of timed on-line testing at facility, which you must pass with at least 80% to be hired. I would suggest you be very familiar with HD products, and be willing to be patient to get the call to be hired. Professional and friendly HR dept. once you are accepted in the program. I took the test for machinist, so other positions may require less testing, but still, it is not easy-be prepared.

    Interview Questions
    • Timed testing was stressful, but they want to make sure you know the basics, and I imagine it "weeds out" those who can't be on time, are not that sharp with math/assembly/comprehension, but not overly hard, just tedious. No real face to face contact until you are called in for testing-applied on-line and contacted by phone to begin testing.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pay rate was set-no negotiation
