    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Anixter International (Glenview, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very straightforward process. Applied online, spoke to a recruiter two days later and he scheduled an onsite interview at the end of the phone interview. The onsite interview was long. I interviewed with about 5 people. They were all great at selling the company and seemed very interested in what I had to say. It took 2 weeks for one of the managers to reach back and ask for if I could go back to speak to the supervisor of her team. I received an offer the next day.

    Inventory Management Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glenview, IL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Anixter International (Glenview, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call back in just a few days. Set up the interview and they compensated my hotel because I had to travel quite a ways. The interview was pretty straight forward. Dressed business professional and brought a copy of my resume. I met with assistant of the VP first and then 4 other managers individually for a brief interview where they asked me to go over my resume. No tough questions. It felt like more of a get to know each other and see if you fit into this environment type interview. Each manager was head of a different team: stock, non-stock and projects, and they gave me an overview of each. Lastly I met with the VP where he asked me more technical questions, a calculation question and a few economics questions. Then we all went out to lunch and I was offered a job on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • One question which looking back now was very beneficial and I'm glad I answered it honestly was do you work better individually or in teams?   1 Answer
