    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BISSELL (Grand Rapids, MI).

    Interview

    Extremely complicated. Met with multiple people during a period of several days. Met with people from all areas of the business - from engineering team members to industrial designers to people in the marketing department. Had to take tests and even meet with a psychologist! Overall, it was a good experience - the people are very friendly and try to get to know you to make sure you would be a good fit.

    Interview Questions

    • The engineering manager at the time gave me a pump and asked me to tell him how it worked.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Over the phone - they made a great offer and I accepted immediately.

    Pre-screen via resume, followup phone interview where they gather additional information, followed by a formal application for employment and in-person interview(s). Phone interview was pretty tame, and the in-person one as well. Was presented with multiple hypothetical scenarios regarding purchasing activity and several "what would you do if..."

    • Questions were pretty tame, some industry- and job-specific "what ifs". I was tripped up with "what qualities do you think make a successful manager"   Answer Question
