I applied through another source and 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 Question – None. All questions were very generic and easy to answer.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Too many HR hoops to jump through. It also took forever to complete the HR process.
