I have been working at Gardner Denver full-time (More than 3 years)
Great Atmosphere and people to work with
Most areas are somewhat understaffed
I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Gardner Denver (Quincy, IL) in April 2016.
I talked to the HR recruiter a number of times over the phone, he was very nice, then visited them in person in Quincy, IL. When I went to Quincy, I met with 6 people who asked me about myself and my qualifications. Nothing out of the ordinary. The one thing that I thought was weird was that my potential immediate boss was out of town so did not interview with him.
