    Interview

    I was sent an email for a video interview request. I had to dress professionally and answer around 5 questions in front of my computer screen. Some questions had multiple attempts allowed and I was given time to think before recording an answer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ITW.

    Interview

    No phone interview which seemed odd. Invited to in-person interview via email. Met with 2 operations staff for 1 hour then hiring manager for 1 hour. Ops employees were extremely knowledgeable but expressed their frustration with Sourcing in general. The interview with the hiring manager was bizarre to say the least. The questions were slow, incomplete and hard to understand. It was very uncomfortable.

    Market Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glenview, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ITW (Glenview, IL) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I had an initial call with the recruiter, then with the hiring manager, and last was an in person with their team. The in-person interview felt very robotic, every person was reading off a pre-printed questionnaire, half listening while writing down answers, and not a single individual bothered to get to know me as a person. The questions were very detailed. I was unprepared so I did not do well. Like when I responded to one question, they would follow up with 3 additional questions to my response. It made me feel like everything I answered was being questioned and not understood or listened to.

    Senior HR Generalist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ITW (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and quickly received a phone call to set up a phone interview. I spoke with the Director of HR for a quick 20-30 minutes. She asked basic questions and told me that they would be conducting interviews in the next couple weeks. That conversation was over a month ago. While I get that I didn't get the position, I heard nothing. A little professional courtesy to say that the company went in a different direction would have been nice.

    Associate R&D Chemist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ITW.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me through an obscure email address for a phone interview. She did not seem like she knew much about the position and was very bland throughout the interview. Furthermore, she would not even follow up with any of my emails and ignored every single one of them after the interview. Most unprofessional interviewer I have ever experience. Definitely look for better options elsewhere. Choose better recruiters to represent your company.
