Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX

Application Details

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in March 2010.

Interview Details

HR is unorganized. You get handed-off from one recruiter to another and they don't inform you what's going on without being asked because they all think someone else is keeping you up to date.
Overall, a miserable interview process, but great company to work for.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    First was a 30 minute phone interview followed 2 weeks later by a 3 on 1, 1 hour in-person interview. The interview team was very professional and courteous. There was a logistical problem that caused the interview to have a hard cutoff time that did not allow me much time for questions or discussion. Team asked pertinent probing questions but seemed to focus on some narrow areas of interest. I was promised feedback in 2 days but that did not happen for a week and even then I had to push to find out the decision so the recruiting side of the house was somewhat slack and unresponsive.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    They were fast on getting me on site. But they did not get back to me about the result even though I asked via emails. They should be kind enough to get back to me since I spent more than 3 hours on site. Questions were mostly focusing on my soft skills like how I could handle conflicts and what is my experience about interfacing with high level managers etc..

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    The interview went well. The only concern was my lack of ample customer facing experience. I explained the customer experience that I had and the person taking the interview appeared content. But then again can not be sure unless we get an acceptance or offer from the company. Key thing to note to make sure that you prove the extensive experience that you have with the customer. Another thing that will definitely help is the references from other project managers.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    My original contact was through an employee recommendation and I posted an online application via the Ericsson web site. Ericsson HR contacted me within a week and a phone interview with the hiring manager was scheduled within 48 hours of my initial contact with HR.

    At the time of the interview, I learned that they were looking for prior experience installing cell tower sites – and my experience was with wireless / wireline network infrastructure projects - but not specific to cell tower construction and turn-up. Both the interviewer and I reached the conclusion that based on their needs; this job was not a good fit. I did not move any further through the interview process.

    During my interview interactions with Ericsson, all of the individuals I interacted with were both professional and personable.

    Interview Questions
    • There were not any difficult or unexpected questions. The interviewer in a very conversational manner was able to obtain all the information needed to make their assessments.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    1 interview with hiring manager, one with his/her boss and one with the director of operations for which you will work.
    Ericsson has a matrix structure so usually you will report to more than one manager.They do take a lot of time until they confirm your are accepted, so it takes more than 30 days to finish it or more if there are additional signatures needed.
    they need technical and financial backgrounds so be sure you mention that in your interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Give me an example of a project where you went over budget and explain how you addressed it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    not much to negotiate, they are looking for your last salary-they ask proof and they offer you about 10% more.
