    Marketing Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ACCO Brands (Lake Zurich, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was found by a recruiter on Linkedin. I ended up interviewing for 2 of their marketing positions. The initial interview was 2 hours long and consisted of 4 separate interviews by individuals who worked in those 2 teams. Everyone was friendly and easy going. I then had another interview 2 weeks later that went further into the specific internship that they decided I better suited. There, I met with the team leader. It was also a very quick and pleasant experience. I was notified a week later that I got the job and proceeded with onboarding activities. The entire process took around 1 month to complete. While this was longer than most of the other places that I have worked at, I did not mind because the recruiter that was assigned to me was extremely helpful and made sure to contact me at least once a week with updates on what was going on.

    I applied online. I interviewed at ACCO Brands (Alexandria, PA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The entire interview process is done in one visit. It was a 3 hour interview that included a tour of the facility followed by 2 interviews back to back with 2 people in each interview. The interview was of average difficulty but became difficult because of the duration and duplicate questions you got from the 2 sets of interviewers.
