Vice President General Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Johnstown, PA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Concurrent Technologies Corporation.

Interview Details – Ad hoc/ad hominem-- wanted to know info that would keep me there during hiring bonus period, but would allow trhem to can me as soon as they could. Predatory, shark-like questions-- ironic for an organization that "jumped the shark" long ago. Questions from peers were like: "what can you do for ME--soon!!!!"

Interview Question – "How much contract revenue can you bring in on the next 90 days (correct answer is $5 million)". Implication-- "how much funded work can you steal from your present employer?"   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Perceived CTC to be "ethically-challenged"

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Concurrent Technologies Corporation in January 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process went fairly smoothly. I was applying for a software engineer position and thus interviewed by a group of engineers as well as the manager. The people were all very friendly and casual, yet sharp and professional. I was asked a few programming theory questions such as recursion, hash tables, database optimizations.

Senior Systems Analyst Interview

Seattle, WA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Concurrent Technologies Corporation in October 2009.

Interview Details – First contacted while active duty military with retirement papers submitted. Immediate skills/ knowledge needs in view of client desires were the driver in the discussions. Being gung ho and confindent doesn't hurt. Initial meeting and discussion of opportunities was straightforward and very fast. What was supposed to be an informational interview rapidly became a hiring interview.

Industrial Hygienist III Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Concurrent Technologies Corporation.

Interview Details – Short and sweet. Had no clue about industrial hygiene so questions limited to if I knew how to use a computer, windows office, etc. They were concerned on where I lived as they prefer to hire from the PA. Asked if I was ever in the military and especially the army.

Interview Question – Asked my experience with the DOEHRS IH military database.   View Answer
