Project Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source - interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in July 2014.
Interview Details – I had an initial phone screen with a talent recruiter who found my profile via linkedin. I then had a hour call with one of the hiring managers. I thought the call went pretty well given most of the questions were general PMP and Agile stuff I had done in my previous projects. He then informed me I would hear back from them within the week. I am yet to hear back
Project Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions.
Interview Details – One phone and in person interview with recruiter. One technical interview over phone. One face to face with director and another with owner. 4 interviews total over the course of 3 weeks. Complete waste of time. They have no interest in building a team or have active projects. They are window shopping and trying to get a feel of the Dallas job market while building a new office.
Interview Question – Nothing hard. "Technical interview" wasn't even technical. They just walk through your resume. Answer Question
Consultant (Project Manager) Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in July 2014.
Interview Details – Talked to one of their recruiters for about 35 via telephone. It seemed to be a good match but this was my first time considering a consultant position rather than FTE. Recruiter in Minneapolis office seemed to be interested in my apps development and deployment background. I interviewed in person a week later after reading a lot about them on this site. Daugherty recruiter said they have clients all across the metro but couldn't list any downtown Minneapolis. I was worried about getting stuck at Express Scripts or UHG as staff Augment and decided not to pursue a job with Daugherty.
Interview Question – None. This was just an opportunity to see if I would be a good fit. Answer Question
Business Architect Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in March 2014.
Interview Details – 1st contact HR phone interview, 2nd HR face-to-face to review resume chronology and ensure correct skills, 3rd with technical lead for in depth quiz on Business Analyst expertise, 4th with Hiring Manager for interpersonal and culture fit. They seemed disorganized and able to make a decision. I had substantial expert skills in more than one line of their business model lines and they had a hard time figuring out where I fit. They requested a 5th interview.
Interview Question – If you were facilitating a JAD session and a key stakeholder/project sponsor was venting and very upset with some issue unrelated with the agenda, how would you deal with this key person? View Answer
Principal Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in October 2013.
Interview Details – They need to see you personally to make sure you "fit the image". This can be difficult since they are located a good distance from the city - especially if you are employed. The first interview was good and respectful of my experience and background. The second was face to face with the recruiter. The "next" was absolutely offensive. He classified himself as a "techno weenie" and was very impressed with himself. He was actually a developer but not really sure what his title was. At the principal level you should be interviewed by Directors - not line level developers. I ended the conversation because he insisted this was "supposed to be an interview"..not sure what he meant by that but the lack of professionalism and true business background was very transparent. I personally would not let this guy near my clients!
Interview Question – What is continuous delivery? View Answer
Director Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in January 2011.
Interview Details – The people are very friendly, but you will go through at least 5 - 7 interviews. The response time is baring on non-professional. Feedback is almost non-existing. All interviews are face to face and are in-depth about previous experiences. Looking for what you are really bringing to the table.
Interview Question – How do you recommend dealing with highly political clients? Answer Question
Senior Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in April 2012.
Interview Details – Daugherty ran a quick interview process and provided excellent communication and coordination. They conducted an initial screening interview and provided a lot of valuable information on the company. That led to a second set of interviews a few days later with executives. Those sessions were very professional. I then received very prompt and personal feedback.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself fitting into our organization? Answer Question
Senior Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in October 2010.
Interview Details – I initially received an E-Mail from their recruiter, requesting a visit in their Alpharetta office. I came by, and she described the company structure and the job details. The benefits package was poor - no stock options, no 401k match, growth within the company seems to hit a glass ceiling very hard once you reach a certain point. It's basically a technical staffing firm - no real company culture, just a bunch of bodies to place into projects - like an Accenture or PWC, but without the name recognition.
The recruiter decides to schedule a phone interview at 8AM - quite an inconvenient time to hold a phone screen while you're currently employed. The phone interviewer is a technical resource who just basically asks what technologies I've worked with. No real assessment of my skills was performed. This lasted about 30 minutes, and he seemed a little bit rushed.
I heard nothing from this company for about a month afterward. By the time I heard from them again, I had taken a much better offer elsewhere.
Interview Question – What kind of J2EE Frameworks (Spring, EJB, etc.) have I worked with. Answer Question
Senior Project Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in July 2010.
Interview Details – I was contacted and asked to schedule a 15-30 minute phone interview with the Recruiter. The phone interview consisted of the typical screening questions about past experience, why I'm looking for a new job, etc. The recruiter 'sold' the company very well and wanted to schedule something quickly. Be aware, this company moves quickly and is looking for people who can on-board within 2 weeks of an offer.
The 1:1 interview at the office consisted of the recruiter providing an overview of the company, the career path and benefits. I was asked to provide some detail on my background and how I would fit into the company.
I was then introduced to a Sr. Consultant, and was grilled on my technical and Project Management experience. This company is very heavy into software development, if you don't have a strong background in those processes, don't bother. They are looking for PM's that they can get into their clients sites with very little ramp up.
I was pleased that they were very upfront with their needs and didn't string me along. The interview was well managed and very cordial. I felt like a guest in their offices and was highly impressed with the company and the people.
This is a company that was high on my list of potential employers.
Interview Question – Describe how you would determine the project requirements for a process development project. Answer Question
Senior Project Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in May 2010.
Interview Details – Ultimately, I was HIGHLY impressed with this organization--they're at the top of my list of companies I'd like to work for. I got the interview by asking one of my LinkedIn connections (who was connected to someone who worked there) if he would introduce me. He did. I chatted with the employee about the company's culture, and the employee forwarded my info to the recruiter. Recruiter setup an initial phone interview to screen for cultural fit, which is obviously very important there. Next interview was a "technical" interview to ensure I had the on-the-job skill to perform well. It was a bit of a stretch for me, and they picked up on it and it didn't go further.
Interview Question – Tell me about your experience with Risk Management on a project - your understanding of it along with some specific examples of how you managed and resolved project risks. Answer Question
