    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Anixter International.

    Interview

    Met with 4 people (was supposed to meet the VP of the department but was unable to the day of my interview), went over job guidelines and previous experience. Came from retail so there was not much in common, with exception to contacting other stores/corporate if something was unexpectedly bought out.

    Basis was a basic understanding of MS Office suite, and problem solving skills. Many people have solved math problems, I did not - though I was asked a lot about my major. If you do not have a major in supply chain, economics, or any other field then expect to explain why your major will help you succeed in the position.

    Interview

    A bunch of lies they put on a front at the interview once your hired it’s a different story they call you and tell you to come in for the interview they will hire anyone because people quite daily so just be yourself at the interview. They are desperate for employees. Trust my words. There turn over rate is deplorable! When you have people that been with a company for 10 to 15 years and they up and quit what does that tell you ?

    Business Process Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Anixter International.

    Interview

    On-site interview was requested for a certain date and time. No additional detail. I was there for 3 hours and met with five individuals - who were peers. It would have been nice to plan for that amount of time and also know who I was interviewing me. The recruiter was the first person and he was nice and informative. Second round were two other Process managers. The interview was more of an interrogation - it was question from the first manager and then question by the second manager. It lacked collaboration and conversation. The third interview was by the ERP Architect who challenged by certification and said he disagreed with the philosophy. He also asked unreasonable questions and answered best I could, but found he was being condescending since it was situations he faced and completed. The last manager was the best to interview with. He was nice, asked questions and also was able to have a conversation. Everyone was on their laptops and disengaged.

    The team was entirely new - the average of 3.75 months. No one could provide job responsibilities or expectations. I had no questions answered due to lack of decision makers being present in the process.

    No communication after the interview. Out of curiosity, I reached out a couple weeks later and was told they cancelled the role.

    Whole process is not a good look when all leaned on the “Blue Book” for culture guidance.

    Interview Questions

    Business Process Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Anixter International (Glenview, IL) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Had 1:1 interview with person who would be Senior Manager for the role. From this I learned her vision for the role and her past experience. It was made clear that the culture was very difficult and no real positive benefits for me in working there were discussed. Manager for the role had not yet been hired but Senior Manager said she had a good track record for hiring quality people to reassure any concerns about hiring into a position without meeting the direct manager. After this, interviewed then with a group of 3 people. This interview was lead by a consultant who asked questions while sitting at a laptop and typing all of my answers. Others involved included someone starting that day in the same role and someone who would be a peer in the Change Management group. Again, nobody mentioned positives about why I would want to work for the company or potential development opportunities for the role. This was a big red flag for me. I was well qualified for the position so it seemed very odd that they were not trying to at least provide a positive impression of the company and role.
