Casual Production Technician Interview

Casual Production Technician
Menomonee Falls, WI

I applied online and 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 Question – 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
