I applied online – interviewed at Robert W. Baird & Co..
The recruiter asked me to walk them through my resume. They asked me to elaborate on a few on my experiences and then they shared further information about the position. Afterwards they asked if I had any questions for them. The recruiter indicated that they would forward my information to the hiring manager and so far I am waiting to hear back from the hiring manager.
Overall the interview was fairly simple. Be sure to have relevant experience for the role and be able to answer fairly straight-forward questions about yourself and you should be fine.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week – interviewed at Robert W. Baird & Co. (Milwaukee, WI).
Interview process was fairly standard and smooth. I applied through a friend and received a call back within a week. Went through the standard 30 minute phone interview and once I passed they had me come in for an in-person interview with the HR Director and a Team Lead.
Both the HR director and Lead were genuinely nice and personable. Throughout the entire process they gave me the impression that the interview was informal however that is not the case at all. At times throughout the interview I felt like I could be myself and answer the questions honestly while at the same time incorporate some humor with each response (since the lead was pretty much not taking the interview seriously as well). I thought that alone was a good sign of a good workplace environment/culture because really, who wouldn't want to work for an employer that can laugh at themselves? Wrong. It was deceiving and speaks volumes about the culture and type of workplace environment they have. You know that co-worker who smiles in your face but talks bad about you as soon as you turn? Yea that's how I felt.
Overall, I think the company would be nice to work for, as I have a friend who works there that can attest to that. It just really depends on what department or role you're applying for.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Robert W. Baird & Co. (Milwaukee, WI).
Applied through my university and was contacted for an interview on campus. The interviews on campus between my colleagues and I were very different. One of my colleagues went through an entirely behavioral interview. Another one went through an entirely accounting-based interview. I went through an entirely technical interview with a stock pitch. Be prepared for anything
