    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BSI Group (London, England).

    Interview

    One phone interviews, one2one interview. Competency based questions, details requested in place. However, I wasn't keen on the company due to poor reviews of management thus I really wanted to test the managers and to practice for upcoming interviews. Every question I asked was aimed of getting a clear figure: e.g. time of travel, workload allocation per project, turnover times of staff. The managers could not answer any of my questions instead they beat around the bush. In addition, I was paying extra attention on how management was communcating with junior members and it seemed dismissive and disrespectful: while walking towards the interview room someone came to ask for help on an obviously delayed project, the manager simply walked away; HR was correcting each other in front of me for little things, during the interview the manager did not encourage the junior person who was also in the room to ask questions). At the end of the interview I was convinced that the place isn't for me despite the fact I'd liked the job itself and the projects.
