    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Illinois Tool Works (Glenview, IL).

    Interview

    Interview with 5 different Engineers from the company lasting about 2 hours. Questions included experience, hobbies, and some basic engineering problems. All said and done was about a two week period waiting for an answer, in which I was required to complete a drug screen and submit infor for credit/background checks. Pretty normal job process - some challenging questions.
