Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Lake Forest, IL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at W.W. Grainger (Lake Forest, IL) in December 2015.

Interview

Applied on LinkedIn and was approached by the hiring consultant next week to schedule a first round interview. Pretty basic behavioral questions and she gave a lot of emphasis on the new projects the group is going to implement. She scheduled an on-site interview within two weeks. Interviewed with two managers. The entire interview was conducted excellently and it felt like a conversation and not a question and answer kind of interview.
The most important aspect they wanted to look for was the ability to solve new problems, drilling the point of quickly performing in new projects. They liked the ideas that I gave them and it ended well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at W.W. Grainger (Lake Forest, IL) in September 2009.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview, then I was asked to come into office. I interviewd for 3 open financial analyst positions. Questions went off a sheet, and were very typical behavioral question i.e; tell me a time when this and this happened, how you handled it, what was the result. Basically the questions they teach you. I don't know why I wasnt selected. But the company seemed nice to work for.
