    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ACCO Brands (Lake Zurich, IL (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and quickly heard a response from the company's recruiter regarding my resume that was submitted. They were very prompt and communicative in the process. I was interviewed on-site at ACCO Brands in Lake Zurich, Illinois.

    Interview Questions

    • There was one phone interview with the company recruiter. Afterwards, there were in-person interviews with 3 different individuals, which one of them was the hiring manager. Each session lasted 30 minutes or so. Was called in for another on-site interview with manager of the hiring manger and the HR. Had a wonderful experience interviewing.   1 Answer
