Project Manager - Localization Interview

Anonymous Employee in Superior, CO
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SDL (Superior, CO).

Interview

Sent in a resume through my Uni's Career Services. Called the HR manager and he arranged an interview. Drove over an hour to get to interview and was treated very unprofessionally. First, given exam to take (which was very easy). Then had an interview with project manager who appeared to be very disinterested and dressed unprofessionally. We chatted for about 30 minutes with standard interview questions but deflected any questions regarding what I need to do for next steps in the process. She looked for another person to do interviews but they were all doing invoices. It seemed very disorganized. I haven't heard back from the company since, even after follow-up emails and calls. The HR manager seems to have disappeared off the planet.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SDL (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Phone interview with very few, basic questions. Fill out a questionnaire that is emailed to you on how you would handle hypothetical situations. If they like your responses, it will be followed by an in-person interview with the HR Manager, 1-2 Principal Managers and Program Manager. If you move to the next stage, they will ask for your references (2) but they will not be called. Instead your references have to fill out a questionnaire to submit back. You will also be required to take an on-line PPA assessment (personality type test).
