    Sales and Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fiskars.

    Interview

    I applied for the position on fiskars.com and was contacted by an HR representative within 3 days. She called to acknowledge receipt of my application and to set up a time for an initial phone interview later that week. After the first phone interview with the HR rep, a second phone interview was scheduled a few days later with the person to whom I would directly report. After that, a final interview was scheduled for the following week- this time I would meet in person with whom I would directly report and a different HR representative.

    I must say, the entire application and interview process was extremely pleasant. All participants and interviewers were informative, inquisitive, and made me feel very comfortable through every step of the way. In fact, after working for 15+ years, I can very firmly say the Fiskars interview process is one of the most comprehensive and professional ones I have ever experienced. It definitely impacted my decision to work here!

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

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

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fiskars (Madison, WI) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the department Director, then by 3 current department managers. Each interview took approximately 30 minutes. My interview with the Director was more of a one-on-one meeting during which I inquired about the role and the qualifications/skills I would need in order to succeed. The director must have decided she liked me because she then scheduled three back to back interviews with the channel managers under her for the next week. I received my offer the same day of the interviews with the channel managers.
