    Hiring process was not what you would expect from a company this large. Very sub par. The hiring manager was the person i ended up working for. Not a lot of experience with interviewing.

    Vice President General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Johnstown, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Johnstown, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Concurrent Technologies Corporation.

    Interview Details

    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?"   View Answer
