    Senior Supplier Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kohler, WI
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kohler (Kohler, WI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    1. Phone call with HR: Basic question and screening. 2. Technical interview: interview with the manager, he explained he role and also asked technical question (Capability, some example from the past, FMEA, etc.). 3. On site interview: 3 interviews that day -> one with HR and my colleagues, then a lunch with one of the managers (he interviewed me during the lunch), the final interview was with the top manager (technical questions only)

    Interview Questions

    • Difference between Cp and Cpk   Answer Question
    • What are the steps of a Gage R&R analysis   1 Answer
    • If you were auditing a supplier and you don't have an audit to follow, what would you check? Where would you start?   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.

    Co-op Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    It is a phone interview and it's mostly based on the resume. The interviewer is a real engineer (not HR), and has a pretty clear understanding of what the Co-op is going to be and how is your personal experience. After about a week if you get the offer they will call you.

    Interview

    Done over the phone with typical questions about resume and qualifications. The particular man I interviewed with was very easy going and down to earth. Didn't feel intimidated or anything. Time at the end was reserved for my questions about the company.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohler in September 2016.

    Interview

    it was ok. i dont think it was hard although It was around 45 mins. It was two way communication not a question and answer style but you get the impression that you are the perfect candidate when the hiring person is talking to you about all what you will be doing.

    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kohler.

    Interview

    The phone interview and on site interview were very prompt. HR and hiring manager asked difficult questions but left plenty of room for questions. Everyone was very passionate about Kohler and it was obvious that they were looking for top talent. The only downfall was the actual hiring process. Almost took two months for me to receive a formal offer letter after they verbally offered me the position.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kohler.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the recruiter via LinkedIn. I had a great phone interview with her and it seemed to go very well. She asked me to apply on the Kohler site for the job and then she will send me the personality assessment to complete. After I applied on the website, I received an email from the recuiter saying that the hiring manager "went another way" with the position. I feel like I was misled to believe I was qualified for the position; it was very strange.
