    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at W.W. Grainger.

    Interview

    I met the interviewer at a job fair. It was obvious that he was new to management and wasn't too good at interviewing. I was offered the position and it turns out that I had to jump through several HR hoops to actually get it. It was pretty ridiculous.

    Interview Questions

    • None. All questions were very generic and easy to answer.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Too many HR hoops to jump through. It also took forever to complete the HR process.
