    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    no phone interview, email asking me to come in for face to face. First 10 minutes consisted of interviewer talking about himself. Just a strange interview all around. IMO, they are looking for a quick fix, someone to bring a large book of business in and make the boss look good. After a few key questions I confirmed that the expectations for the position were to grow the territory 100-150% in a year. He looked confused when he realized what he was asking someone to do. No thanks.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glenview, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.
