    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Generac Power Systems.

    Interview

    Interviewed with several team members including HR. Went on to interview in person with the hiring manager - all went very well. Was told I would receive an offer the following week. Then it went radio silent. Followed up with HR and hiring manager - HR never responded and hiring manager did not know what was causing the delay. This was months ago - to this day no clear understanding of what the issue was. VERY unprofessional to not give someone a response when it was left as a job offer forthcoming. I dare to wonder how an employee is treated once they are hired.

    Engineer II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Generac Power Systems (Waukesha, WI) in June 2016.

    Interview

    There was a quick response to my application with two phone screens, and then an on site interview at the plant where I'd be working. I met with the hiring manager, as well as his boss. We talked about my past work, my goals and expectations for the future, and of course, the product architecture and some of the gaps in that architecture into which my efforts would be applied. It was a collegial, pleasant interview, with a few technical challenges from them, and some quality-of-workplace, process, and corporate culture questions from me.

    In the end, we decided there was not a good fit, but I think neither of us regretted the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Generac Power Systems (Waukesha, WI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    It was an interview with five different people at the facility. It was not technical. Typical entry level questions on how I interact with people in different situations. My accomplishments I'm proud of. Good conversations with the actual engineers and really straight forward with the rest of the interviewers. Finished with HR. They told me they would respond in a month but they took eleven days. Confidence and being relaxed is key for this to be an easy interview.
