    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brillion, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ariens (Brillion, WI).

    Interview

    First had to take a Myers-Briggs style test, which the results were submitted to Ariens. In the interview this was never referenced but I assume it was used to direct the line of questioning. Had a quick phone chat, but the real heavy lifting was in the in person interview. Talked with a few high level managers, mostly in a conversational tone. No case studies or anything, fairly simple and interesting line of questioning. Some managers were obviously more interesting in their questions than others.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ariens (Brillion, WI).

    Interview

    Internal recruiter very knowledgeable about company needs and culture and was willing to provide insight into interviewers to prepare me. Company growing and understaffed, so everyone appears very busy. Despite that, interviews were scheduled in reasonable amount of time. Met three executives, one business unit lead, four team members. All very pleasant people, easy to talk to and consistently positive about company. Most questions were to clarify my resume, except for prospective teammates, who came very prepared with thoughtful questions. HR rep asked what other positions I was looking at in other companies, which was a welcome question and allowed me to relate my goals to the position I was interviewing for at Ariens. Asked several times about willingness to work in Brillion -- appears to be hurdle for talent acquisition.

    Executive Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brillion, WI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ariens (Brillion, WI) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Recruiter didn't prepare me at all for the interview. The actual interview at the company dug deeper into my background and ended up disqualifying me for the job. Ariens says they are all about their values/ethics but when I was politely and respectfully honest with them regarding my previous employer, the recruiter called to tell me I was 'too honest'...

    Interview Questions

    • Simply asked about my history in various positions I've held over the years. Wanted to know more about the people I'd worked with in the past than the skills and personality I brought to the job.   Answer Question

    National Sales & Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oxford, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ariens (Oxford, England (UK)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Took personality test online prior to any interview. The results of this are sent to the interviewers and they review before anything. Then had a phone call with executive team (one at a time, not all at once) after inquiring through email. I lived abroad so this made the most sense.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions - what Ariens do is have you take a preference/personality test before the interview. This is then matched with the preferences they think would work best for the jobs. You are then interviewed and the test is either confirmed to be good or bad, or you are able to change their opinions of who they think should be in the role based on your performance. Sounds more intense than it is and the interviews are generally very laid back.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Quick - I had another offer so presented that as what I needed in order to consider. They matched and exceeded that offer.
