    Electrical Engineering Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kohler, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kohler (Kohler, WI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    First interview was a conference call with 3-4 people. I was a bit nervous for this and felt like I did alright. They asked a lot of personality/theoretical questions. Second interview was in person and I felt more positive about it but still didn't expect much. Went through my work history/school then asked a lot of questions about work ethics/communication. Ended the interview with more technical questions that I wasn't necessarily prepared for, so I just admitted to not knowing much about the topic and expressed interest in learning more. Overall, everyone was very nice and the process only took 3-4 weeks from first interview to second interview to start day.

    Ecommerce Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kohler, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Kohler (Kohler, WI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    This was quite probably the most screwed up interview process I've EVER been though; and I've been through many.

    I applied for a job called "Digital Marketing Director". Suddenly, a new posting went up for a "Manager of Digital Marketing and Ecommerce", which the senior recruiter called me about. I asked her about the other job, and she said it was the same job, they just changed the title. I found out later (from another employee) that was a complete LIE.

    Kohler's hiring process is a disaster. They had me do multiple phone interviews, 5 interviews on-site (a 3 hour drive), multiple online tests, and finally a psych test that I had to drive 2 hours to Milwaukee for. After passing all the tests "with flying colors", according to the recruiter, I waited...and waited....and waited....to this day, they've never had the common courtesy to let me know what's going on. It's been six months. Obviously, I would not go there now, even though they're in my hometown!

    Interview Questions

    • The questions I was asked were not out of the ordinary. But the entire process is a complete disaster, very time-consuming...you jump through hoops and they're very, very inconsiderate, and then they leave you hanging.   Answer Question

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Kohler.

    Interview

    I was referred to the company and several job openings through a recruiter. After taking a Caliper assessment, I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. I was then brought into the corporate office for 4+ hours of interviews with various leaders. After great feedback from the first round of interviews, I was asked to spend an afternoon downtown Milwaukee taking skill assessment tests, personality tests and meet with a psychologist. After being told I "passed" the psych assessment and receiving very positive feedback on the interview process, I was told they went with an internal candidate. I was called back to interview and speak with various leaders regarding other openings and each time was told they were interested in me, however they went with an internal candidate. This back-n-forth went on over the course of 6 months. The interview process was a very large time investment.

    Staff Engineer, Systems Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kohler (Sheboygan, WI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Nothing to say much as I don't like the lack of communication and clarity of the interview process. Contacted by a recruiter and had a great interview(Recruiter, Phone screen with the hiring manager and group director, Onsite ) but they kept me hanging(without much communication) for almost 2 months, before moving ahead with another candidate. I don't mind not getting the offer but there was lack of clear and honest communication, on their part, which was disappointing.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of behavioral questions and Engineering problem solving questions/ Psycho-Analytical test(waste of time...they do not use any info)   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Basically they were offering much less than other companies. If you want an engineer with a Master and a Green Belt you have to pay more than a entry level salary. Other than that the company culture looks good, and benefits look good also.
