Supervisor/Project Manager Interview

Supervisor/Project Manager
New Suffolk, NY

I applied online - interviewed at Cablevision Systems in April 2014.

Interview Details – All company information is available to the interviewer, so most questions relate to a 'what would you do if' or ' how would you handle'. I have always been confident in presentation due to honesty and knowing my own qualifications. Understanding the position is (hopefully) a long commitment, so you want an environment that is not only challenging but secure in knowing that your work is noticed and the position is satisfying.

Interview Question – Would you be willing to relocate or are you available for weekly flexible shifts.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Way low salary offer. Accepting the fact that a new salary won't always be met by having a previous 20+ year career at a prior company and position but a competitive offer or an open discussion should be made.

From the moment I walked in there i was treated very kindly by syeeda (I believe that's how you spell her name) she is wonderful and really helped me calm down, because i was super nervous offered be coffee or water and what-not.
