Generac Power Systems to Hire 300 Throughout Wisconsin

Generac Power Systems, a world leader in backup power and engine-powered products, is hiring for nearly 300 positions at six of their Wisconsin locations this month. The new roles are being added as the company works to meet consumer demand for Generac products. This demand continues to grow as the need for backup power gets stronger and the aging power grid fails.

The open positions include roles in manufacturing, welding, warehouse and assembly. Applicants have flexibility when it comes to choosing shifts, as first, second and third shift positions are needed. Generac also recently instituted a new program specifically for these positions that offers regular wage increases during the first two years of the employees' tenure, in addition to continuing to offer generous and comprehensive benefits to meet the needs of a changing workforce.

"We're committed to being an employer of choice for people looking for a fulfilling career in manufacturing," said Rhonda Matschke, executive vice president of global human resources, Generac. "We are committed to Wisconsin and are investing heavily in our people with competitive wages and great benefits to ensure we have the strong workforce it takes to build quality products."

To jumpstart recruitment for these positions, hiring events will be held from June 12 to June 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.with interviews onsite at the Generac facilities in Berlin, Oshkosh, Whitewater, Jefferson, Eagle and Waukesha. Applicants should arrive in the appropriate time window and be prepared to answer general questions about their education and experience. A resume is good to have on hand, but not necessary.

Generac also holds an open walk-in interview program every Wednesday at each of its facilities between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. To learn more about the hiring events, please visit
