    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Polaris Industries in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two short phone interviews with the HR person. I didn't schedule the third interview, because they did not offer to pay for airfare. The second interview was supposed to be with the executive director, but was not. The company seems fairly small and short-staffed. They advertised as a company that markets for pharma companies, but during the interview they did not mention this at all. They mostly work for a branch of Staples.

    Quality Assurance Tech Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Polaris Industries in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was asked a lot of questions that a normal person would not know until after they had been trained at this position. I'm not sure if they figured that these questions were common knowledge of if they figured the person that would get the job would be able to jump right in and start without any training. Every job I've ever had, someone has showed me what I had to do...but maybe that's just me.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked what several acronyms stood for...a question that nobody would really know until they worked in that position. To top if off, there was one that they didn't even know, they had to look back at their notes...but yet I'm supposed to know all of them??   View Answer

    Electrical Engineer Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Wyoming, MN

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Polaris Industries in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Started with an on campus interview after being selected through a career center posting. Received a call a week later or so asking if I would do a follow up phone interview (was an extra step from what I was told on campus). Did the phone interview and was told I would hear back within a few days to a week. Within that time frame I received an email saying that I was invited to come onsite to interview for the position.

    Was sent a long online evaluation to take and an application to fill out.

    Next I went onsite for an interview which involved speaking with four different groups (three engineering and one HR). In one of the interviews I was given a lock and a few different tools and asked if I could open the lock. The answer being of course that one of the people doing the interviewing had the key. After the interviews, there was a group session which involved discussing benefits and such. Following was a meal and then a group "project" (3 other ECE students) in which we were asked to discover the inside of a blackbox given a schematic with only boxes for parts.

    We were then dismissed to leave. The mileage reimbursement and hotel setup was good.

    The only large complaint I have is when I responded to the email notifying me that I would not be extended an offer, was that they did not respond saying that they could not provide feedback or anything they just did not respond.

    • The most difficult question was most likely the group project in which we were required to figure out what was inside of a black box.   View Answer

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Medina, MN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Polaris Industries in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview with the HR manager. Assistant set up all further interviews. The main set of interviews involved four people at one hour each. It started at 9:00 am and finished at 1:00. I made sure to have a large breakfast at Perkins ahead of time which was good because there were not breaks for lunch. In general, the interviews are pretty informal and they want to hear about what it was like growing up. I think this is because they want to know what your interaction has been with Polaris products or other motor sports.

    I applied via an online career networking site and heard back from an off-site contract recruiter who arranged a telephone interview. I appreciate Glassdoor's employee and former employee reviews - they help create a framework for understanding the possible work culture.
