    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Anixter International.

    Interview

    Met with 4 people (was supposed to meet the VP of the department but was unable to the day of my interview), went over job guidelines and previous experience. Came from retail so there was not much in common, with exception to contacting other stores/corporate if something was unexpectedly bought out.

    Basis was a basic understanding of MS Office suite, and problem solving skills. Many people have solved math problems, I did not - though I was asked a lot about my major. If you do not have a major in supply chain, economics, or any other field then expect to explain why your major will help you succeed in the position.
