    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Kohler.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted by a recruiter and then moved to a phone screen and then complete stall. Had to reach out to recruiter to get updates and then finally moved to an onsite interview. The onsite interview was ran really well and met my expectations for a company of this stature. However, once the onsite interview was done it was another waiting period. Finally had to call the recruiter as I was being offered another role elsewhere and that seemed to do the trick. Received offer letter within a day of this conversation. All in, the process from first contact to start date was over five months.

    Interview Questions
