Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at W.W. Grainger (Lincolnshire, IL).

Interview

Very brief interview process overall. I had 1 HR phone screen and 1 onsite interview with hiring manager. The managers were very nice, conversational. They dug into my school experience, former work experience, and future goals.

    Interview

    traditional when I joined, now hiring is a longer drawn out process. Currently no hiring of anyone full time. This full time freeze is very selective and not consistent.
