Vice President General Manager Interview

Vice President General Manager
Johnstown, PA

I applied through a recruiter and 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 Question – "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

Reason for Declining – Perceived CTC to be "ethically-challenged"

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Concurrent Technologies Corporation.

Interview Details – Short and sweet. Had no clue about industrial hygiene so questions limited to if I knew how to use a computer, windows office, etc. They were concerned on where I lived as they prefer to hire from the PA. Asked if I was ever in the military and especially the army.

Interview Question – Asked my experience with the DOEHRS IH military database.   View Answer
