    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mace (Chicago, IL (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    There was a phone screening with a recruiter. She sold me really hard on the position, which I found peculiar, but I was enticed by all the great benefits and proceeded with the interview process. From there, I was set up with an in person meeting at their office with two of the directors. It was very conversational. We discussed my past experience, and I shared some of the work I had done.
    Both the recruiter and the directors told me that I would be advancing to a final round where I meet with the client. I waited over a month - checking back in every other week with both the recruiter and director to gauge when this final round might take place. The first two weeks they told me that they were busy and gave me dates to follow up with them on. When I followed up on said dates, I was greeted with radio silence. Nobody ever returned my calls or emails. Highly unprofessional to string a candidate along and then ignore all further communication from them. Thankfully this was not the only company where I was interviewing.

    Industrial Placement Student Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mace.

    Interview

    Went to one interview and progressed to the assessment centre. The assessment centre group session ran one hour late. And this meant we finished later and I grew very hungry and tired towards the end, so that affected my performance.
    All of the HR team were friendly and after I found out if I made the position, asked if I would like a telephone conversation to discuss how I did during the session. There were no refreshments apart from water. Some snacks would have helped as the session lasted from start to finish around 5 hours.

    Interview Questions

    • Mainly specific questions about my CV. One question was who I expect to interact with in my role and what I understand the advertised role to be.   Answer Question

    SummerCommercial Management - London 2020 Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mace (London, England).

    Interview

    Waited for a month before invited to an interview at Mace HQ London. Extremely friendly, approachable people right before the start - had good banter! Interview process was very professional with questions targeting yourself, your knowledge of the industry and application to real life scenarios. I would recommend reading up on the various types of contracts - management, design build traditional - and how they apply to their projects. Having an internship under your belt before truly helps you expressing your understandings further - it doesn’t have to be within construction but it has to tie in on your understanding of the Q.S principles - cost estimating, claims, measurement etc. Engage with the interviewers and don’t afraid to ask questions- you’ll be doing plenty when you’re on the job!

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about the different type of contracts used within the industry? Name a few examples of projects that use them?   Answer Question
    • Different between PQS and CQS? What are your thoughts on their respective roles and how do they vary? Which would you choose?   Answer Question
    • How do you keep track of organisation - time management.   Answer Question

    Front of House Operative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mace (London, England) in January 2020.

    Interview

    My experience of the recruitment process at Mace has shown they stand head and shoulders above any other organisation. They are the benchmark that other organisations should follow and reap the reward of an efficient time saving on the recruitment process for all involved.

    Understanding time off for interviews when allocated a fixed date and time is challenging, MACE offers an extensive choice of appointments. My first interview offered anytime over two weeks.

    Beverley, my dedicated senior recruitment Manager, contacted me after my interviews for feedback. In my case, I decided the vacancy wasn't suitable and discussed the reasons.
    Beverly then discussed other positions that may be more suitable and contacts me when a new post is available.

    At the interview, the department Manager gave plenty of time for you to discuss how the experience on your CV can benefit Mace and yourself.
    This method of interviewing gives you, the candidate, an opportunity to show your genuine enthusiasm, personality and achievements that the standard generic interview questions don't always allow.

    My experience with Mace makes me want to work for this company as a long term career, and I am looking forward to a position where my 'can-do attitude', and commitment contributes to Mace's quality and service excellence given to their clients.
