    Interview Details

    I did the first round interview with pricing manager. The interview lasts for 40 minutes and all questions were behavioral questions. "What will you do if people from multiple departments want data from you" "how will you deal with the situation if a member in your team doesn't agree with you". Questions like this.

    This seems like a great company to work for. I would have loved to been placed here but the trail ran cold. I had an interview with the OP Mgr and several follow ups but I only got the run around with this company.

    Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at WESCO International in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    They didn't take the interview seriously from the start. Once the interviewer mentioned that they were interviewing internally I knew that they werent going to consider any external candidates and that was why they were trying to rush me out the door. If you dont want to take the process seriously then dont waste both of our time. Oh well, you win some you lose some. Still a bad experience though.

    Graduate Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at WESCO International in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was found through LinkedIn for a position in my city. The corporate HR process was slow and painful. Took 8 weeks to go the qualifying math exam, recorded webcam interview (one chance to answer 3 questions, answer 2 minutes max, very difficult). The face to face interview with branch manger was the shortest interview ever. I was asked to tell them about myself and then the interview concluded. Next day I was offered the job with no details about what the position was about.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part was the answer to the question "Why do you want to be in sales and what attracts you to that kind of position?' with only one shot to answer that in two minutes giving the answer to a computer screen with a webcam recording the answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations, I was offered the maximum possible.
