    Application Details

    I applied through other source - interviewed at W.W. Grainger.

    Interview Details

    I met the interviewer at a job fair. It was obvious that he was new to management and wasn't too good at interviewing. I was offered the position and it turns out that I had to jump through several HR hoops to actually get it. It was pretty ridiculous.

    Interview Questions
    • None. All questions were very generic and easy to answer.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Too many HR hoops to jump through. It also took forever to complete the HR process.

    Interview Details

    Basic behavioral quesitons. Very friendly interviewer. Young. Took notes on computer to give to higher recruiter-- wasn't in charge of making decision. Questions asked: Explain how you overcame a challenge. Sell me this pen. Why should I hire you and not my next interviewee.
