    Engineering Department Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waterloo, WI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Trek Bicycle (Waterloo, WI) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Despite being an impressive company based on their products, Trek has one of the most disorganized and unprofessional recruiting efforts I have ever seen! Poor communication, make-it-up-as-they-go process, odd writing requests, unkept promises (about timeline), constant shuffle through various recruiters, and an excessively long interview process (nearly 3 months).

    Interview Questions

    • Because the hiring manager was unfamiliar with the position she was seeking to fill, she asked questions that were irrelevant to the position.   1 Answer

  • Meet Kyle. He researches and designs saddles and grips at Trek’s headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin. For Kyle, who completed a master’s thesis on the palm pressure of cyclists’ hands at Ohio State, Trek is the perfect fit. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQPbt

  • Meet Amy. Amy is a master decaler for Trek’s custom bike service, Project One. Amy's been a paint department team member at Trek for 12 years. “The people here are awesome, easy to get along with and we’ve worked with each other since we’ve started."
