    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 phone interviews with mgmt and then a few on-site interviews as well. It was just a few weeks after I interviewed that I heard back with an offer. There were warning signs regarding job posting and the descriptions from the interviewers that I failed to address. This led to a position that I was not expecting nor what I was seeking. Make sure to get everything in writing if you have questions or doubts.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were straight-forward with no surprises. It was a standard uneventful interviewing process.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is very little room for negotiation with Ericsson. They do not have telecommuting or alternate ways of working. Regarding salary, Ericsson is not in line with their competitors and they will tell you it is because of the 100% healthcare coverage (which they love to play up), bonuses, etc., but it is a smokes and mirrors game. If you want considerably more than what you are offered, you will not get it. Unless you are comfortable with the offered base salary amount (not the bonuses or raises), do not accept the position.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    1 interview with hiring manager, one with his/her boss and one with the director of operations for which you will work.
    Ericsson has a matrix structure so usually you will report to more than one manager.They do take a lot of time until they confirm your are accepted, so it takes more than 30 days to finish it or more if there are additional signatures needed.
    they need technical and financial backgrounds so be sure you mention that in your interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Give me an example of a project where you went over budget and explain how you addressed it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    not much to negotiate, they are looking for your last salary-they ask proof and they offer you about 10% more.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    HR is unorganized. You get handed-off from one recruiter to another and they don't inform you what's going on without being asked because they all think someone else is keeping you up to date.
    Overall, a miserable interview process, but great company to work for.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in July 2008.

    Interview Details

    Maximum emphasis was on the Project management skill and competancy

    Next to professional experience , the second most important aspect was experience in the similar geography

    Salary was equally important in the selection for this profile.

    Only one interview was taken and then HR interview was lined up.

    HR was very overloaded and they had to reschedule the meeting as HR executive was overoccupied with other work.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to leave your current job ?   Answer Question
    • You have never worked for Wi-Max project , why should we hire you as Project Manager ?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The location offered in the final offer was not matching as per initial discussion with Hiring Manager as they had some differnt business requirement emerging by the time of offer roll-out.
