    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Initial interview is by phone. Second interview is with multiple managers; as few as 2 and as many as 4. Each asking a variety of questions related to project management and how you would hand a particular situation. All questions are written and each interview participant is assigned a series of questions to ask the applicant. The interview lasts approximately 2 hours. There is no opportunity to stop for water; and no one offered. The interview process is tiring and requires an ability to think on your feet.

    Interview Questions
    • Several questions were asked relating to company vision and products manufactured.   Answer Question

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    You have to go through the staffing company in order to get an interview at Bristol-Myers Squibb. The staffing company helps to prep you for the interview. It was a very quick interview, maybe 10-15 minutes. Started off by asking a few questions about my resume to find out where I would best fit. Followed by a few personality questions. Then they opened it up for questions for me to ask.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me to describe a situation in which I had to work an employee that was hard to get along with.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb.

    Interview Details

    Questions were very behavioral. Asked for 2 strengths and 1 weakness. Asked about times that you felt you were a leader, helped a team through a conflict or solved a conflict on your own or in a team. Also asked what might set you apart from other candidates and WHY choose BMS.

    Interview Questions
    • Many of the questions could have the same answer so try to know ahead of time which answers you have to each. They asked what set me apart from other candidates and that was hard to answer for me.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Nothing to do with the company, I just couldn't leave school a semester to do a Co-Op.
