Finance/Accounting Early Career Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
Interviewed at Belden
Interview Details – Interviewed on campus. Interview questions were all behavioral. Also, asked about resume and background. Not too hard of an interview but looking for experience most of all. Belden has been acquiring companies in the last 8 years and seems like they will have massive growth in the next 5 years.

Human Resources Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 3 months - interviewed at Belden in April 2012.
Interview Details – Phone screening - early March
Personality testing online - took 2.5 hours
Panel Interview in late April - Interview schedule listed three people, only two showed up 15 mins late (didn't apologize for being late) and didn't mention the third person that was suppose to join. The two interviewees shook my hand, told me their names, and launched into the interview without explaining the position or what they were looking for. They never spoke about the position until I asked at the end of the interview.
During the interview it felt like a waste of time. I knew I didn't want the position simply because of the culture betrayed during the interview and the rude approach in conducting the interview.

Executive Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Belden in January 2012.
Interview Details – The interview was very intricate. I first was interviewed by the staffing agency to assure I was a good fit. I was then offered a 2nd interview with the Hiring Manager. After that second interview my references were contacted. Finally a 3rd interview consists of 4 interviews in one individually where I met with the remaining staff I would support as well as the Executive Assistant above me. It was a very engaging experience, very detailed questions were asked. However they described their work environment as "cold" and "results-oriented" and I believe may have thought I was too "social" for the environment they are accustomed to.
Leadership Development Program Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Belden in October 2010.
Interview Details – I got this interview through a career fair at school. The first part of the process was an on-campus 1-on-1 interview with a recruiter and was asked standard interview questions: strengths, weaknesses, what I would bring to the position, etc. For the next step I was flown up to a 2-day recruiting event in Indianapolis with about 12 other candidates. We all went out to dinner with candidates and employees and talked with them. Formal interviews were held the next day. There were two rooms, each with a panel of 2-3 interviewers. This interview was mostly a personality profile, they would ask you to talk about your life and then ask questions about it, to learn more about you and your personality and see if you were a good fit for the team. An intelligence test was taken and we went out to dinner again that night with candidates and employees.
Interview Question – So tell me about your life... Answer Question
Marketing Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Belden in March 2010.
Interview Details – Belden came to my University and we did an on campus interview. Later I was invited to Indianapolis for an on-site interview. There were 2 interviews (each with a panel of 3 people). One was related to high school and the other was the standard behavioral questions.
Human Resources Intern Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Belden.
Interview Details – First and on-campus interview and then an over the phone interview. Phone interview lasted about 45 minutes and consisted of behavioral questions. In person, on-campus interview had easier questions (because it was the first step) and was more of a conversation. Next step would have been to do an on-site interview.
Interview Question – What would you do differently during your college experience? Answer Question
Financial Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Belden in February 2012.
Interview Details – I first had an on campus interview. It was a basic behaviorial interview, nothing tricky. I then took an online skills test, as well as a personality assessment. I have yet to hear back, and I took the test three weeks ago. I don't know what to expect going forward.
