    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Boise Paper (Bensenville, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First started with a half hour phone screening. Serious questions for a first conversation. 3 hour interview with three different people. Different behavioral questions, but had to say the same thing over and over since the people come in one at a time, instead of just sitting in a room together, which would cut down on half the time.
