    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Stationers.

    Interview

    Applied online, took 3 weeks for HR to coordinate a date/time with hiring manager. Asked for my availability then scheduled interview during a time I WASN'T available (seriously...then why even ask me??). When I got there the hiring manager kept me waiting in the lobby for 20 minutes. While I completely understand that stuff comes up, she neither apologized nor even acknowledged her delay. Then we met for about 40 minutes, of which she talked for 35.

    Interview

    Initial communication from Recruiter after one week. Applied online. Several interviews, process was pretty fast for that piece. One with Recruiter, then three additional interviews with members of Mgmt and HR. Don't think they knew what they were looking for in a leader. Almost two months without communication then got an email job cancelled.

    Interview

    Had a brief 1-1 interview at campus with a HR staff member. Then selected to a final round in Deerfield. When out with all candidates and senior leaders for dinner the night before. The following day I had 3 45 minute interviews with various people throughout the organization. These were people I would be working close with. Very laid back interviews. Resume walk through, where do you see yourself in 5 years, why do you want to work here, tell me a time when you had to deal with difficult people, what level is your Excel skills. Truly basic interview questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at United Stationers (Charlotte, NC) in October 2010.

    Interview

    This was my first face to face interview at USSCO. I previously had a phone interview . The phone interview was easy and comfortable. My face to face was with an HR person and a manager. The people were great but, I was a little discouraged because, the questions were all "scripted". Some of these were questions that were asked in the phone interview. When I got to ask questions, I asked about the people that I will be supervising. Direct questions about turnover, etc. I read some of the postings about this company and was concerned. They claimed to have very little turnover. I am interested in this position but, they had 120 responses to the ad. So, I wont hear anything for 2-3 weeks
