    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harley-Davidson, Inc. (Milwaukee, WI) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Really well-constructed program which is well advertised and competitive. Suprised that they paid for my travel expenses and then didn't offer me. Considering the companies new direction to appeal to younger buyers, I feel like they are not listening to the younger buyer, and going with the old "were gonna tell them what they want" approach.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wauwatosa, WI

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harley-Davidson, Inc. (Wauwatosa, WI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter and the initial process was pretty fast. I was brought in for an interview that was rather unorganized. The questions they asked were off a list and impersonal. I never was really interviewed by people in the group I would have worked with, so it was hard to ask questions about the position. After the interview, I was surprised I never heard back from them one way or another...pretty rude for this level of position.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked the difference between 2 specific engineering terms that no one would use after college.   2 Answers

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Recruiter for Harley-Davidson was not well organized or reliable. It was unclear if the recruiter was an employee of Harley or under contract. Would call me and then not get back to me for days. Didn't really understand much about the role he was recruiting me for. My suspicions were that the job wasn't big enough, but it took weeks to arrive at that conclusion because the recruiter made the job to sound bigger than it really was.

    Reasons for Declining

    Could not agree on salary

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Harley-Davidson, Inc. (Milwaukee, WI) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Primarily based upon Behavior Interviewing. If familiar with this type of interviewing, one can prepare with recalling situations that illiustrate the "expected behaviors." Accomplishments, roles played in them and how particular challenges were identified and addressed need to be more emphasized because folks that know how to cookbook these interviews are favored over individuals that have higher accomplishments and addressed challenges within them more effectively.
