I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Hagemeyer North America in July 2009.
Interview Details – Completed a detailed job app. Had 2 interviews, and then had to do a drug test before being hired.
Interview Question – Asked how I would be able to overcome my limited industry/product knowledge in order to be successful. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There's little salary negotiation possible for this type of job because their business is such low margin.
Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Hagemeyer North America.
Interview Details – Standard fare for a corporation that has no clue. Cliche questions such as "Where do you see yourself in five years?" and "Name a difficult time or situation that you have dealt with?" I was shocked that the regurgitated nonsense is still in use. No discussion of skills or experience and the interviewers had no clue about the position they were interviewing for.

Negotiation Details – The Negotiation was standard for the position. Original offer, counter offer, agreement then acceptance. The strangest part was dealing with the HR Department and not dealing with prospective direct supervisor until after offer letter was extended. After I accepted the offer, restructuring occurred and when I reported to work, everyone that I interviewed with was no longer with the company. That would have been nice to know before the first day at work. The people that have lasted since the early 2000's have my respect. How they have dealt with the lack of guidance and misguided management is truly miraculous.
