    Had a brief 1-1 interview at campus with a HR staff member. Then selected to a final round in Deerfield. When out with all candidates and senior leaders for dinner the night before.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at United Stationers (Deerfield, IL) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I had an initial 1:1 interview with a recruiter. The process was very laid back. We basically just went through my resume, with her stopping every now and then to ask more questions about a previous job I had. It felt more like a a conversation than an interview.

    For the second interview, they flew me out to Deerfield, paid for my hotel, and I had four interviews, each an hour long. Most were with different directors in marketing, and all were very similar to the first interview. They were much more converstaional, than behavioral based interviews. One interview was with a second recruiter and those questions were behavioral based.

    Overall the whole process was very smooth and not very intimidating. Everyone in the office was very friendly and seemed happy to be there.

    Interview Questions
