Project Manager Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Corning.
Interview process was extremely lengthy. I got the feeling that I was supposed to have worked in a plant environment before I came into the office for an interview. A lot of people asked the same questions over and over again.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks – interviewed at Corning (Corning, NY) in May 2011.
Recruiter conducted phone screen. Then a skills test was administered. Then the hiring manager conducted a phone screen. Then there was an in-person interview with 2 personnel. What became clear from the interview process was the following: 1. contractors are largely running the enterprise PMO....40 out of 51 are contractors, 2. there was a significant project backlog but that projects were consistently behind schedule and no one was sure why...i.e., they are lost., 3. senior management is reluctant to bring on more resources because due to consistent delivery lateness even thought there is a large project backlog, 4. the interviewers, although older...>50, were novices at interviewing who spent more time making statements then in eliciting responses.
