    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Actuant (Spring Grove, IL).

    Interview

    The interview was multiple people. HR, then Engineering and Production. Despite spending almost 4 hours on site, I never heard back. Not even a rejection email. Very low class

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Actuant.

    Interview

    I signed up for an interview through my university, and the interview took place with someone from HR. Overall, the questions were fairly standard interview questions; however, with some of the questions, I had to answer a lot of follow-up questions. It was fairly informal and at times felt like a conversation.

    Program Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Actuant (Urbandale, IA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty standard process, applied online via company website. Took a few weeks for a phone interview with someone in Wisconsin corporate office. This was around the holidays so waited a couple of weeks to check back and was asked for onsite interview with hiring manager, HR, etc. This seemed like more of a token interview though. Didn't seem engaged during interview; drove 6 hours round trip for less than 1 hour group interview. Interviewed really seems to focus on cultural fit over my skills and qualifications. Followed up with HR person a couple of weeks after interview and no response via email or phone; been almost 2 months with no word and position is still up on company website. Guess I wasn't a big enough gear head/shade tree mechanic for their team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Actuant (Menomonee Falls, WI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The first round interview was held on campus and was primarily a "tell me about yourself" discussion. After passing this round, I was asked to a final round interview at the office in Menomonee Falls, WI where I had 6 30-minute interviews, all with high-level executives from the company. These interviews consisted of a variety of behavioral questions, "tell me about a time when..." questions and just general conversations.

    Very informal, conversational, nice people. Didn't feel like they really got to know me. Questions were very broad. Impossible to prepare for interview unless someone tells you the questions before hand.

    Engineering Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Actuant (Milwaukee, WI) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward. One on campus interview and then another on-site interview. Both were very casual and behavioral interviews - nothing technical. They like it if you have prior experience in industry with internships or jobs. The campus interview was with a couple recruiters and the on site interview was with 4 people that work in the company. As usual, do a lot of research on the company and if you can, competitors. Ask them about how they grow and about the role. The more questions you ask, the more interested you sound.
