    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Federal Signal (University Park, IL (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    1) Phone screening (15min) just and overview of the company and to get a little background on you to see if you are a good fit to proceed.
    2) In-person interview (30min) sat with 2 managers and they told me all about the position and asked pretty basic questions that weren't too hard to answer like my work history right from my resume.
    3) 2nd in-person interview (20 min) with another manager who tailored a few different questions at me and gave me a bit more detail to what I would actually be doing day-to-day.
    4) Call from HR with my contingent offer of employment.

    It was a very smooth, easy and comfortable process. (For me at least)

    Interview Questions

    • The one question that stood out to me was:

      How do you deal with "cliques"?
      (a small group of people, with shared interests or other features in common, who spend time together and do not readily allow others to join them.)   1 Answer
