    I have been working at Generac Power Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Growing, fast-paced company with a lot of opportunity to grow. Good benefits and a do what it takes to get it done culture. Great products where quality, safety and support are a driving force for development.

    Cons

    Given the growth, change is constant and priorities shift. The bigger the organization gets the harder it is to get things done and the longer it takes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consider ways to take steps out of the process to allow things that move faster. Push some authority and decisions down - too much bottle neck waiting on the top to approve

    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Generac Power Systems in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screen with engineering manager with the pressure washer division. Talk was largely based around project management and project ownership. My onsite visit was a time crunch. I asked for a later flight but no response. The interview onsite had changed focus from what was discussed on the phone to a job different roll altogether. And the time was too short - all one on one interviews - we ran out of time before I had to leave for the airport. It was nice to see a company still making product in the USA.

    Interview Questions
    • Part was place in front of me and asked how would I make it more cost effective?
      Part was shown and asked how would I get rid of or hid a part blemish?
