    Interview

    The interview took place during the UW- Madison Fall Career Fair. After the brief talk at the career fair, I was shortlisted for the technical and behavioural interview. The person interviewing was a UW Alumni and was mainly interested in the projects I did over the period of my Master's. He then described the project that he was recruiting for and the layout of the company. The whole interview process was very ambient and warm. A few basic technical scenarios were presented and I was asked to give solutions I see fit in those scenarios.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mercury Marine (Fond du Lac, WI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Simple and easy, small conversation with HR, then an in depth interview with department manager, with time to explain ideas and thoughts. Lasted less than a week before I had an offer, knew they were interviewing 5-10 other candidates at the same time. The interview was very unstructured, but I think it depends on who you interview. He did have a list of questions, but most he just marked off as we had a casual conversation about the job and my past experiences. I also did not get the position I applied for, but another position where he thought that I would fit better.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical interview, most difficult question is how you can fit in with the environment, everything else is quite straightforward.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mercury Marine (Fond du Lac, WI) in August 2012.

    Interview

    I applied for this position via Brunswick website on July 5, 2012. On July 12, 2012, I received a phone message asking for a phone interview on 13JUL12, at 11am. The phone interview was conducted on July 13, 2012. It was with the hiring manager who was the previous holder of this position. I was asked questions about my background and skills. I was told I did pretty well on this interview. I was told that there were still others who needed to be interviewed and that notifications would be made for possible on-site interviews. I received a phone call on August 3, 2012, scheduling an on-site interview. The interview was a panel interview conducted with the hiring manager, Area Manager, and the Production manager. The atmosphere was very relaxed the questions were generally easy and were nothing more than them wanting more details about my resume. I left there and was told I did well and that they would get back to me within two weeks with a decision. I didn’t hear anything within the two weeks so I called on two separate occasions to the Hiring Manager but had to leave a message. I received an e-mail on September 6, 2012, informing me they chose another candidate whose experience and qualification better match the position.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't really difficult questions, most of the typical tell me about yourself and what would you do in this situation. One question that sticks out in my mind "What would you do as the Production Supervisor if you were given a task that you knew couldn't be completed in the time allotted?   2 Answers
