    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Graybar (United States)


    The initial interview went well and I was told to expect a call the following week from the hiring manager to never hear anything again. I reached out to the recruiter and received nothing.

    Basic questions: walk me through your experience, tell me about a time when, etc.
