    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Acklands-Grainger (San Antonio, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted through LinkedIn and the recruitment process was very thorough. The recruiter was very friendly and helpful. The interview was not quite as pleasant. I was asked a set of questions about specific past experiences and answered them to the best of my ability using the STAR method. I was not asked about anything that was on my resume or about my education (BBA in Marketing). I had prepared a cover letter and brought a recommendation letter that was not even reviewed before the interview handed back to me at the end of the interview.
