Difficult Interview

Financial Management Associate Interview

Financial Management Associate
Lake Zurich, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ACCO Brands in November 2013.

Interview Details – 3 stage interview process: 1) Phone interview with HR. 2) Panel of 4 interviewers. 3) 1:1 interviews with high level executives.
The HR representative that I worked with was incredibly pleasant. She always let me know when I could expect to hear back. I felt as if I had a friend helping me along this otherwise nerve-wracking process.

Marketing Intern Interview

Marketing Intern

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ACCO Brands.

Interview Details – Hiring process was fast and straightforward. After applying online I was contacted through email to set up a phone interview. I had a phone interview a few days later with someone from HR. Standard interview questions; asked about past experience, how I had handled a conflict with someone that could demonstrate my ability to deal with difficult people. A few hours after the interview I received an email to come in the next day for an onsite interview. I met with two people in an hour long interview (roughly 30 mins per person). They asked what I found interesting about the position, how I could be a vital addition to the company, and similar questions. Everyone was very nice and timely.

Interview Question – All questions were pretty standard to what I anticipated.   Answer Question
