Very Difficult Interview

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Alpharetta, GA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at EY in October 2013.

Interview Details It was for a contract PM role through a firm, 1st phone interview the person was a no show, so I wasted 30 minutes sitting on a conference call that no one bothered to cancel, 3 days later I have a phone interview and was requested to come in for a face to face within a week. The hiring manager was fair and respectful, but then I had to interview with a guy who would only be my peer and the man seemed insane, he was so offensive and aggressive. In all of my professional career I have never been spoken to in that manner. He was foreign and maybe his communication style is just different, his tone and how he processed information was something to behold. He apparently has the PMBOK memorized and wants the candidate to quote it exactly as it's written or he feels you don't know what you talking about. It was the worst experience of my life. The man was all but yelling at me and saying I didn't ask you that answer my question. If I wasn't there on behalf of staffing firm I would have gotten my stuff and walked out, because I don't allow anyone to speak to me in such a degrading manner.

Interview Question – Why would I only want to be a contractor. I was interviewing for contract position, so I was really thrown off.   View Answer

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Atlanta, GA (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in August 2012.

Interview Details Interview started with a detailed telephone screening, next was a phone interview with a hiring manager, just looking more into my back ground. I have the feeling my resume was too "bouncy" for them as i have worked contact many places in the last 4 years. Next was a video conference as I was working out of town and this was set up in their NO Office. Finally, a colleague 30 telephone interview.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at EY in July 2008.

Interview Details I had two interviews with E&Y. One phone interview and a day of interviews with senior management. The process was very painless. The company seems to be very interested in making sure that its employees are the best trained and capable employees they can get. Their motto is that they want people who have a work/life balance. It is highly irregular for a person not to leave at a reasonable hour. Honestly it was seen as a negative.

Interview Question – How would you deal with a department that is not being responsive to request for information and project updates?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate a pretty good offer from the company. Don't under value yourself. If they really want you, they'll pay.
