    Interview Details

    Was referred to the project manager support position through a recruiting company. The mgr was placed at the company and they referred me as a qualified candidate.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at American Water in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had an employee referral, but had to apply online in order to get an interview. The phone interview was pretty standard. Questions asked to describe project management processes and how you apply them to projects. The face to face interview was a 2 person panel. Mostly behavioral questions like; how did you correct a project that was behind schedule?
