    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Premier Farnell (Cleveland, OH) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Generally 2-3 interviews for most positions. Typical competency-based interview. Best way to prepare is to think of as many scenarios as possible from your previous work experiences and learn to articulate how you handled difficult situations. Demonstrate confidence in your skills and the ability to translate those skills into what is required for the position.
