    Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Quincy, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Gardner Denver (Quincy, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I talked to the HR recruiter a number of times over the phone, he was very nice, then visited them in person in Quincy, IL. When I went to Quincy, I met with 6 people who asked me about myself and my qualifications. Nothing out of the ordinary. The one thing that I thought was weird was that my potential immediate boss was out of town so did not interview with him.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sheboygan, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Gardner Denver (Sheboygan, WI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    A headhunter called and told me they were conducting a confidential search to replace someone in the company they were going to fire for performance. I spend over an hour talking with the headhunter then had a Skype interview with the Manager in Germany. I then had to meet with the head of operations. They strung me along for two months and then called to tell me they were going to maybe hire someone who had left the company and heard about this "confidential search" and wanted to come back. They never called back to let me know what the final decision was which wasn't surprising. This was one of the most unprofessional interviewing experiences I have ever had. I look back and realize that I should have never gone through this process. I would never again consider them as an employer.
