    A lot of inner processes for everything. Facilities sometimes are not big enough for the amount of team members. Complex pricing structures for customers

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Acklands-Grainger (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    1 Phone interview with District Sales Manager - 1 Phone interview with HR Representative - 1 in-person interview - A very expediated process- all interviews took place within 3 weeks. extremely friendly staff, everyone was very passionate about their work and the company. Very transparent process. Looking for you to "close the sale" at the end of the interview
