    Senior HR Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waukesha, WI

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Generac Power Systems (Waukesha, WI).

    Interview

    Phone Interviews went smooth, arrived early met with two Senior management. They continually spoke about how they wanted to change their culture again and again. Then said they felt it would be difficult from someone from a small company to transition to a large company that it would be a difficult cultural fit. Why bother to try to change your culture, if you are afraid of bringing in change? Most frustrating did not even get an email rejecting me, got no response. Very disappointing and shows a lack of respect that Generac has for its applicants. Ironically, they asked me in the interview if I saw their low scores on Glassdoor

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Generac Power Systems (Waukesha, WI) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Walk in interview. A very fair process. A short wait on their walk in days at their headquarters. They even let you do a job shadow if you passed through the initial screening process, to really let you see if thats what you'd be interested in. Everyone starts simply working with a telephone.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    Interview

    It was a phone interview and basically going through the projects mentioned in the resume, background and some behavioral questions. I was still waiting for my employment authorization without which I cannot start work so they did not follow up with me because of that.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Generac Power Systems (Jefferson, WI) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the job online but the job site application does not always work so I ended up scheduling a day to meet with HR. In the office with HR, we got on the computer to straighten out the problem with the application that was done online. Got it to go thru. She said everything looked good and I got a job offer right there and I excepted.

    Engineer II Interview

    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.
