    Commodity Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Bend, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Howden Group (South Bend, IN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The managers gave each interviewer a project that you would have done in undergraduate school, lacking a lot of information, and the time frame of the project to be completed was unrealistic as well.

    Interview

    Discussion with CIO, well presented friendly and gave a good run down of the company and the role. Felt it went ok but got a strange feeling from the whole meeting.
