    I have been working at Milwaukee Tool full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Milwaukee is a fast paced company that gives high performers many opportunities at growth. They are constantly coaching and training you at how to become better in your current role and preparing you for future company roles. You are fairly compensated in the industry and even though they are a very large corporation, they still value the small company feel. This is apparent with the upper level management interacting with all employment levels and making you feel valued.

    Cons

    The company runs at an extreme pace and if you can't react quickly and be agile this is not the right company for you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Milwaukee Tool (Brookfield, WI).

    Interview

    Issue: HR Department: I didn’t have any personal issues with the team I would have been working with, but I can't say the same about the HR department. I felt they didn’t have their act together throughout the entire process. Email communication was not the most polished, at one point I was responding to emails from 3 different individuals. The in-person interview process was just as disjointed as the email communications. Not once did HR sit down and explain the company values, role, history, benefits…etc. Instead I was just dumped into 1st interview without any formal introductions. At the end of the day my interactions with the HR department was enough for me to realize I didn’t want to work for this company. An offer was made two weeks after the interview and I turned it down.
