    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at G & W Electric Company (Bolingbrook, IL) in May 2013.

    Interview

    HR had their game together with a calm, approachable office and friendly representatives. I didn't feel judged harshly or under the lights at all. The office was small and approachable and not the type of place where a dozen other business casual wearing people were sitting around nervously. You weren't required to bring in an insane amount of material for your interview, such as a birth certificate or a passport. It isn't that kind of job, thankfully.

    Interview Questions

    • Some questions about the company's history. Other than that, they asked very standard questions about past experiences and troubleshooting scenarios where you were forced to act.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at G & W Electric Company (Bolingbrook, IL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Not bad ofcourse, but once I was hired, found put my manager was not the friendliest or most professional manager in the company. The pay will bring you in but the quiet non social atmosphere may drive you mad from day 1. Seems exciting because of location but its not. Beautiful decor.
