    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ACCO Brands (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    2 phone interview, one with HR and one with the hiring manager. This led to in-person interviews with the hiring manager, the hiring VP, two product managers and a senior director in another group. Each interview lasted 30 minutes. Each person came in with specific questions for me to answer with specific examples and a few minutes at the end for me to ask them questions. They were very prompt with each interview ending when the next person walked into the room right on time. The last interview went a bit longer because there was no one waiting to meet with me.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions centered around accomplishments listed on my resume. They asked about specific examples to understand the details better and how I might approach situations specific to the job. One question centered around how I might handle approaching a major presentation without all the information I might need at that meeting.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ACCO Brands (Lake Zurich, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I had an initial HR phone screen about 3 weeks after I applied for the position. About 1 week later, had three 45 minute interviews with cross-functional team members and hiring manager. 2 weeks after that, other three 45 minute interviews with 2 VP's and director. I received and accepted an offer within 1 week of that. So about 1 month from 1st interview to an offer. A little less than 2 months from application to offer.

    Interview process was very professional. Great communication and follow-up from Acco. Overall, very positive experience.

    Interview

    i believe it was some what lengthy. but i do believe it covered all bases. i have done many interviews and none covered as much criteria as this did overall. i suspect that you want to know as much as you can about an employ that you are intending on hiring.
