Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Centene (Columbus, OH) in March 2015.

Interview

Two separate interviews with position specific experience based questions. A really great company and terrific people working there. I liked every person I met. After the interview, the home office contacted me and indicated they were doing a background check through a third party, who emailed me asking for my W-2's. However, my references were not contacted and a long time Passed with no updates. I got another offer which I accepted, but would have been equally thrilled to have been with Centene.

Reasons for Declining

I was interviewing with more than one employer, and the other employer was faster and more interactive post interview. It was a really hard decision and I can't say enough good about the people I met at Buckeye in Columbus

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Centene (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Be patient as there are a lot of applicants. Submission of application is fairly standard online submission. There are roughly 3 rounds of interviews and this can take a few weeks to complete. You will meet with HR during the first round and 2nd round. You will then meet with your potential supervisor and team members during the 3rd round. You are not provided a tour of the facilities until you have been made an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Centene (Indianapolis, IN) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Phone screen by HR personnel followed by initial interview. Behavioral interviews are encouraged, and a template is distributed. Beware that if the hiring manager asks other team members to interview you, as is often the case, you may answer the same questions several times, as everyone works from the same template. You will be asked to describe situations that show your ability to be flexible, work well with others, take initiative, and troubleshoot. You will also be asked to describe your technical expertise.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle a situation where you are expected to meet deadlines, yet one particular member of the project team refuses to complete his/her action item. What steps would you take to get that line item on your project plan checked off?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    For me, this was an internal promotion, so there was little room for negotiation. I knew that I was transferring within my current job grade. When I first interviewed for the company, I was asked to disclose my current salary, and they beat it by 3 percent.
