    Client Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    Recruiter was excellent, had personality and described follow up process well. The concerning part is that when you are advised your name will be passed on to hiring leader that is when feedback stops. People applying for a position, who do make the cut to actually speak to the recruiter deserve feedback on why they were not selected. To get an email that says we selected another candidate does nothing to allow one to grow, fill in the gaps and work to become the next best candidate.

    Program Management Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Concurrent Technologies Corporation (Albany, GA).

    Interview

    There is a multiple step interview process that can take several hours. I interviewed with each of the individual Project Managers, the Deputy Program Manager, followed by an interview with the Program Manager at the end. The questions varied, but each interviewer had taken great care to review my resume and qualifications carefully beforehand. They had very in-depth questions prepared that were clearly tailored just for me and the position I was interviewing for.

    Interview Questions

    • The Program Manager asked somewhat personal questions that didn't pertain to the position. I was a little taken aback, but I am certain he meant no harm.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. The organization had a set salary for the position based on education and years of experience that was non-negotiable. The company is non-profit, so most of their positions below management are that way.

    Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Concurrent Technologies Corporation (Johnstown, PA).

    Interview

    CTC utilized a rotating panel interview using 10 minute blocks for each person. Many of the individuals were under-prepared or gave me the feeling that they had better things to do. (After working there I completely understand why) Oddly enough, the most unprofessional individual I encountered was from HR. This individual had a tattoo showing which, in my opinion, is not acceptable for a corporation of that size. The questions were very generic and did not pertain to what the job held.

    Interview Questions

    • Because this was an internship the questions were very generic.   Answer Question

    Vice President General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnstown, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Concurrent Technologies Corporation (Johnstown, PA).

    Interview

    Ad hoc/ad hominem-- wanted to know info that would keep me there during hiring bonus period, but would allow trhem to can me as soon as they could. Predatory, shark-like questions-- ironic for an organization that "jumped the shark" long ago. Questions from peers were like: "what can you do for ME--soon!!!!"

    Interview Questions

    • "How much contract revenue can you bring in on the next 90 days (correct answer is $5 million)". Implication-- "how much funded work can you steal from your present employer?"   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining
