    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sheboygan, WI

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kohler (Sheboygan, WI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Avoid this company!

    Recruiting Methods:
    Extensive drawn out 5 phase interview process:
    Then no more contact by company
    At least one week passed between each phase:

    1. Phone interview with HR representative.
    2. Phone interview with software engineer.
    3. Webex interview with software engineer were I was asked to write some simple programs/methods.
    4. 2 hour Calpers test (personality/problem solving questions
    5. On site interview

    Delay tactics on reimbursement:

    I did not receive my promised refund for travel expenses until over two months after my onsite interview! The expense form was filed in timely manner. I sent at least 10 emails and called numerous times. Each time I was told a check would arrive soon.

    Conclusion:

    Drawn out, inadequate, time wasting interview process. Unprofessional, immature interviewer:
    One of them was rude, dismissive or laughing at responses to questions.
    The onsite interview was odd and frustrating.
    I would have declined any offer after the visit.

    There are many negative reviews from current and former employees on glassdoor which go along with my experience with this company. Look for another company to interview with.

    Strategic Sourcing Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Kohler in September 2012.

    Interview

    Long process, probably 150 days from initial discussion to offer.

    Phone screen, then online testing (Caliper). Depending on that, then an onsite interview with seven or eight individuals. If that's not enough, a Wonderlic is administered that day, and depending on the job grade, a psych eval.

    Do be careful when taking the Caliper exam. Whatever you say on it will be used against you for the rest of your career at Kohler.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kohler (Kohler, WI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with two different departments, so I spoke to hiring managers/teams for both departments. They both liked me and decided to put a bid in on me, so the HR Generalist for their area came in to ask some more questions and at the end he told me about the position, the pay, the expectations, etc., and offered me the job. I agreed on the spot, and they walked me out to my car.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kohler.

    Interview

    Usual process, recruiter asked screening questions and then scheduled me for department interview after a few days. Be prepared to answer some tough logical interview questions. Be prepared to answer some of the walk me through your resume questions. Second interview lasted 5 hours which was little overwhelming for me as a newbie. It took them a while to get back to me, but everything went positively.
