    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Donaldson Company.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a short-term temporary position. The interview took an hour. I was interviewed by two people who grilled me like it was a higher level (and higher paying) position. I was also “mansplained” one of my own answers, which was an interview first for me. Surprise! - no offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Donaldson Company (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very informative. Was nervous about the panel interviewing, but was actually quite helpful to understand the position and who were people and teams I would be working with. There were multiple panels and individual interviews.

    Digital Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Donaldson Company (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    The recruiter called and left a voicemail saying she was trying to schedule a phone interview. I called them back and they kept asking me questions when I didn't have time. If it was supposed to be a phone interview, they should have told me so in the voicemail, so as I could find a private room and time.
    They were very unprofessional, I'd avoid.

    Technical Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomington, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Donaldson Company (Bloomington, MN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    They contacted me (internal employee) and scheduled a meeting really later after my application. Went through what seemed like a standard interview for a position I was well qualified for, and then they told me that the interview was to coach me on my job hunt and that they'd already hired someone.

    The guy was barely older than me, less education, and not as high of a performer... It was garbage,

    Thorough process, several interviews with multiple levels of the organization. Begins with recruiter, then hiring manager. If you pass those two phases then prepare to meet the larger team for individual interviews. Interview is not just focused on you being the right candidate for Donaldson but Donaldson being the right fit for you.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Donaldson Company (Bloomington, MN) in January 2016.

    Interview

    They just want someone in as fast as possible. I got a call one day from HR to setup a call for later that same day with the Director and Manager. On the phone with me they invited me in for an in person interview. Well...they rescheduled it on me 3 times, not very professional. They will have you sit down with 3-4 people, 30 mins each, and that's it. You will meet the Director, then your direct Manager, and then another manager of the same group. Each has their own tactics, all very different.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked if I am okay with change. They made that question very clear because the company is so torn apart everyone does their own thing and changes it all the time.   1 Answer
