    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.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Actuant (Menomonee Falls, WI) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The process was lengthy and thorough. I met with many management level people through different business verticals. It took 4 rounds, but it gave me the chance to really understand who I would be working for and the company culture. There was a phone interview and 3 in person interviews, including a round table of 7 people asking various questions. It was difficult, but in the end they made thoughtful decisions on who was brought in to the company.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menomonee Falls, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Actuant (Menomonee Falls, WI) in October 2012.

    Interview

    One interview with the Director of Sales and the Director of Retail Marketing.
    A second interview with the Director of Sales, Director of Retail Marketing, Account Manager, Human Resources Leader, and the Executive Vice President - Electrical Segment.
    Each person interviewed me for about 45 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • They contacted me and told me that they were interested in interviewing me for the position. When the Executive Vice President interviewed me he started with, "I already told them that I was not interested in hiring someone who worked here in the past." Then proceeded to personally insult me by stating, "It looks like you are in the same place in your career now as 18 years ago and to be quite honest that is not appealing to me." I guess that he does not value 10 years experience as a small business owner during the recession or six years prior experience doing the same job for Actuant that he was interviewing me for.   1 Answer
