Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Anixter International (Glenview, IL) in March 2015.

Interview

They did on-campus interviews at my University. After that they called me and asked me to come down to their Glenview HQ location to do a final interview. I met with 5 different people, all in different supervisory levels, including the director of the buying area. They offered me a job on the spot after my final conversation that day.

Interview Questions

  • Most of their questions were about my background and how I could transfer those skills to the job. Maybe one situational/behavioral question. But the main objective of the interview seemed to be just getting to know me.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Anixter International (Glenview, IL) in May 2008.

    Interview

    The interview is more of a "match" interview. If you get along with the interviewees you're going to get hired. If you are interviewing at ECS you'll be asked 1140-220 by Mike Schumskie (who's a really good guy). They'll obviously try to figure out if you're good with numbers and if you're moderately intelligent but the interview is a pice of cake.
