Staff Projects Planner Interview

Staff Projects Planner
Houston, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Exterran in August 2011.

Interview Details – The communication was always frequent and positive, before and after the interview, including the HR representatives and the hiring manager. The salary, benefits were explained in a very detailed way so there were minimum questions at the face to face interview. Got interview by one of the team members and the hiring manager, all questions were technical (planning), there was no behavioral questioning

Interview Question – none, they were all technical related to my area of expertise   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation on the salary and benefits. I was able to negotiate an extra week of vacation (from 2 to 3)
