Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at McMaster-Carr.

Interview

The phone interview started with an overview of what the company does after which you're prompted as to whether you'd like to continue or not. The interview was relaxed, just a standard phone interview where they asked broad questions about your background and why you wanted to work at the company.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at McMaster-Carr.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter, who supposedly found my resume through my college career website. We spoke over the phone and she described two programs, the management trainee and the development and design program, and said I should consider the development program. I told her I was interested, and we went right into a 15 minute fit interview.

    I was contacted about a week later saying they wouldn't be moving forward with my application.

    Very weird process... they must have a boatload of recruiters poaching any sort of talent and conducting mass interviews. I don't know anything about the company and was surprised by the initial email.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at McMaster-Carr (Elmhurst, IL) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Really long process -- had two phone interviews and took all day on site.
    They walked me through the facility and asked me questions about different aspects of MMC and why I think things are the way they are. They do seem to really love themselves, overall a little strange but probably for the better?
