    Interview

    Called by an HR specialist, and told to take a drug test prior to interview. After two weeks, they sent me to get my drug test done and scheduled an in person interview. The interview was brief (30 minutes), and casual. About a week later I received a call asking when I could start.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Panduit (Tinley Park, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    There was a two person panel interview and then a one person interview in the same day. Some questions were behavioral others were regarding my experience and skills. Very easy and everyone in the process was very helpful.

    Negotiation

    I declined the position at first and then was called a couple of months later and reoffered the position. I do believe they bring their best offer to the candidate at first.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Panduit (Tinley Park, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a recruiter followed by another phone interview with the hiring manager. Went on-site for two hours and met with people from the talent acquisition group. The offer stage was strange. I asked for an extension to make my decision by one day through voice-mail and email. I got no response and assumed I had the night to make my final decision. I received an email around 7pm that evening saying the request to extend was declined and the offer was no longer on the table. The ending came out very unprofessionally. It felt like they were avoiding my rejection by rejecting me first.

    Interview Questions

    • They focused on behavioral based interview questions, asked a lot about specific scenarios I had been in and how I handled them and what I learned.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I received a counter-offer from my current company that was too hard to pass up.

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Panduit in August 2013.

    Interview

    Varies--changes every year. Currently, they use an outside recruiter. A colleague interviewed for a promotion and the hiring manager kept texting and using his I-pad. It took them 10 weeks to make a decision, with no communication to the internal candidates during that time.

    Interview Questions

    • to paraphrase: you just surgery a few months ago, are you sure you are up to the task?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate salary as they would not budge on the vacation time.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Panduit (Tinley Park, IL) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Very nice phone interview was first. After there was a flight out to WHQ for a day long round of interviews. It was a lot of people and a lot of questions but overall it was fairly relaxed. They really wanted to get to know me and how I have handled issues in the past. They wanted to know how I work and the manner that I think about problems.

    Interview Questions

    • They were very interested in the direction that I feel IT is going (focused on the data center environment).   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was very easy. Their HR rep put together a generous relocation package great salary and decent benefits.

    Great negoation process where I felt as if the company really played to my advantage on career growth & training, benefits & compensation and work/life balance.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Panduit (Tinley Park, IL) in September 2011.

    Interview

    The phone interview was about 30 minutes long. I was then asked to come in to meet with a manager, 2 supervisors, and someone from HR - all one-on-one. They gave me all the details about the job that I would possibly need, so they did a good job with that. The people that I talked to were all very friendly and optimistic people so I think it would have been a good company to work for.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when something was impossible to accomplish?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer because after learning all the details of the job, I knew right away that it was not a good fit for me. I also learned that in the customer service department, there seems to be a very high employee turnover rate, and that tells me there must be something negative about the job.
