I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Randa Accessories.
A recruiter will call you, who is unfriendly and talks back to the person they are trying to recruit over. He does not work directly for the company, but he reflects badly on the company. I then met with the manager and a top senior manager, both who were friendly and efficient.
- Every single person asked me, Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Answer Question
When I said the pay was not what I was told initially, I was told -- don't negotiate or they might pull back the offer

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Randa Accessories (Chicago, IL) in July 2011.
I spoke initially to a head hunter. This conversation was fast and quick and then on to the next one. I was interviewed in the Randa offices three times prior to being hired. I was asked at all three interviews where do you see yourself in five years. Generally speaking the interviewers were friendly.

The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Randa Accessories (Saint Rose, LA) in June 2011.
The HR Director called me to come in for an interview in response to my online application. He interviewed me for 45 minutes, then his HR Manager talked to me. Both people were cordial and professional. I was called back for a second interview. Same two people interviewed me as a group interview this time. The interview itself was typical. However, the job was between me and another candidate. Director promised me he would communicate with me either way if I got the job or not. His deadline came and went and I heard nothing. Frankly, I was not disappointed that i did not get the position.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Randa Accessories (Rosemont, IL) in May 2011.
I interviewed with nine people, and it was pretty easy for me as I was prepared. However, the questions are mostly behavioral and the interviewers are also very approachable. My suggestion to you is to find more behavorial questions and use the STAR technique and you should be fine. Best of luck!
- I don't really remember, but it was something like: When is there a time you failed? Answer Question
No, it was an internship
