    Project Management Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quick Release.

    Interview

    There were three rounds. The first round was an excel test that was fairly easy. The second round was an interview with someone in the UK that involved normal situational and behavioral questions. The final round was an assessment centre in Dearborn. This consisted of a presentation, a technical paper and interviews.

    Now to the issues. The HR team all sit in the UK and communicating with them is a tedious task due to the time difference. After speaking to other employees at the assessment centre I was informed that this was an issue for them as well. Additionally, I was told that the US wasn’t normally their region and that they were not fully aware of how things were done in the US. It’s strange that a company that has been in the US for a significant amount of time still has no one in the country to handle this process.

    Secondly, they ask you to come for the assessment centre from one coast of the US to the other all at your own cost! I have never had an experience where a company has asked me travel out of state for an interview and not offered to pay for the expenses. For a recent graduate looking for a job this is not easy to do. After much discussion, they asked me to book the flights and hotel stay and said that they would pay a certain percentage of those specific costs only, with a very low limit to go across the country! To add to this, I was always informed of an assessment centre just a week before they were held so finding affordably priced tickets and accommodation was always difficult.

    Now to the best part. Unfortunately, I agreed and ended up going for the assessment centre at Dearborn. The staff there were all very friendly and easy to get along with and the interview process was good. I wasn’t selected for the role (which is fine). However, since I have submitted the expenses, my emails have been ignored without so much as an acknowledgement that it has been received. I’ve sent my emails to two different people and have got no response. I’m unsure if I will even receive my reimbursement at this stage. To me this highlights a lack of professionalism and general courtesy as well as a general organizational culture that normalizes treating candidates in this manner.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Quick Release (Dearborn, MI (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Excel test, phone interview, then assessment centre. Excel test can be intimidating but requires no preparation as all information to pass is within the test.

    Both interviews were advertised as informal, but were actually very formal in terms of expectations and questions. Review the website and make sure your answers remain relevant. The phone interview asked mostly technical questions to gauge your expertise in data.

    Assessment centre consisted of a three minute presentation, an hour and 20 minutes exam (similar to the excel but more breadth in scope), and an interview. The centre can seem very informal - the company culture makes you feel very comfortable, but the objective of it is to gauge your ability to handle a project on your own.

    Did not receive an offer five days after the centre. Feedback is given from the assessment centre.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Quick Release (Dearborn, MI (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through Indeed, had a phone screen with a recruiter located in the UK, and then had an in person interview/introduction to the company at the Dearborn office. The in person interview was fairly informal. It started with a quick intro to the company and chatting with the head of the office, then lunch, then a more structured interview. There was a lot of time to talk to the people working there and get a feel for personality fit.

    Interview

    Initial application CV and Qs, then phone or Skype competency interview, then excel test, then assessment center.

    Would probably more convenient if based in London though since most people at the assessment center seemed to be based their or around.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Quick Release (Coventry, England) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Apply online, perform an excel task, video interview, assessment centre, two more final interviews before getting an offer, or being rejected. I don't have much more to say about it. It was nice, interviewers were pleasant. I am waiting feedback from the video interview stage, but I don't think I will proceed to the next stage.
