    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at American Water (Voorhees, NJ) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Was referred to the project manager support position through a recruiting company. The mgr was placed at the company and they referred me as a qualified candidate. I had a 30 -40 minute phone interview. The feedback I received was that I interviewed well but they were looking for someone with more SDLC experience. But this was not a (required) skill listed in the job description.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions asked were behavioral and project related; how do you control risks on a project; what were project documentations used in past projects; what is there that you would like to tell me about yourself that I do not know already regarding the position;   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at American Water (Voorhees, NJ).

    Interview

    Was called by two in house recruiters and was told I would be contacted for an in person interview. I was never contacted. I called 4 or 5 times during a three month period to follow up and inquire as to what happened and never received a call back. Very disappointed after having spent at least an hour on the phone with the recruiter.

    I had an employee referral, but had to apply online in order to get an interview. The phone interview was pretty standard.
