I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Atos North America in February 2009.
Interview Details – The process has changed over the years, but all new PMs were required to have a PMP certification at a minimum. Most if not all of the interview process is done remotely and over the phone.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Atos North America.
Interview Details – More time was spent selling the position than quantifying my expertise as a fit. I was hired for a different job than I applied for so I wasn't well prepared to answer questions for 'that job' so I was caught off guard. They decide if they want you based on what's on paper. If you seem like-able at the interview - it's yours to lose. They are measuring how poised, confident, calm and good you are under pressure. (professional acumen). They will keep asking questions till they trip you up or find your weakness and proceed with several more to 'stress test' you. I lacked experience in a few of the areas (and no prepared response since I had no idea I would be going for a different job) but responded with stories and experiences which were somewhat related or relevant to show understanding of the concept and some exposure. I did this several questions in a row and they seemed to like my poise and 'communication' skills. I was likely up against others who were probably more attuned with more direct recent experience and prepared since they knew what position they were going for...I did deliberately give a range lower than current market rate (15-25% under) because I was coming in as a contractor and knew I would have room when I converted in the future - but for the moment my goal was to simply 'secure' the job out from under my competitors. I have done this in the past with other companies to get my foot in the door and then advanced later. Since then I have observed hiring practices and outcomes. Half the time they are hiring unqualified/ill fitting or lazy people they then have to let go later (after they have done no work, leaned on others, caused risk and done damage) after several months of no output. Bedazzlement and 'likeability' during the interview process and an interesting back story seems to take priority over logic. This is a problem half the time.
Interview Question – Are you motivated by money? [Isn't the the entire point of employment?] I stalled and tried diversion and giving an ambiguous answer (it depends on the circumstances) but he pressed on as if the answer to this question as yes or no was the final test. (I said no.) He had a few more people to consider/talk to. I got a call within 2 hours they selected me. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Atos North America in June 2011.
Interview Details – The interviewer tested my knowledge on basic Outlook and Windows issues and communicated in a way to solicit my manner of speaking one-on-one. She also asked questions about my education and experience and previous jobs, and asked me to give examples of customer service and handling difficult situations to see what I would respond with and how I would respond. At that time interviewing and speaking off the top of my head was not easy for me, but taking calls from different people all week has certainly improved that to a great extent.
Interview Question – Have you ever had a problem you could not resolve, and how did you handle it? View Answer
Negotiation Details – The interviewer hired me on the spot along with 20 other agents. They needed people to assist with their hardest account and they needed them immediately. Because it was clear I was somewhat undecided with finality, my recruiter was able to get me a good wage with almost no negotiation.
I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Atos North America in August 2012.
Interview Details – Received a call from Atos recruiter who went over job role and my requirements, determined I was qualified to apply for the job and sent my resume to HR recruiter, got a call from a lady recruiter who scheduled a person interview with hiring manager at Highstown NJ, interview was mostly going over job role and expectations, very few technical questions. After two hours of interview hiring manager told me that I was going get a call in a week for a follow up interview...3 weeks later, no call. I E-mailed recruiter, HR recruiter and hiring manager inquiring about the company decision for this role, no call back, no E-mail after 3 weeks! We all put aside time for interview and expect both sides to be more professional, a simple E-mail saying that "another candidate have been identified" or "we are still looking" would be enough, terrible experience with Atos job application here in NJ.
