    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Interview Details

    Interviews were conducted over the phone. The recruiter did a nice job scheduling and coordinating the interviews. There were a few surprises around the number of people on the interview call and the style of questioning. Going forward, the interviewers should consider how to balance out the "realities" of the position with the benefits of a career at GP Strategies. They need to remember that while they are interviewing, the candidate is also interviewing them in terms of cultural fit and career opportunities.

    Consultant Interview

    Interview Details

    Applied online, and was invited to sit with several other interviewees for a round-robin interview in the Alexandria VA office. We each got about 15 minutes to talk to three different people. The interviewers kept changing because they had to "put out fires" and other employees were constantly running around. Some interviewers hadn't even seen my resume. Wait times were long, and the process took a few hours (even though I only spoke to actual employees for about 45 minutes total). I thought it was disrespectful to the prospective employees who made the time and effort.

    A few weeks after the interview, I got a mass email from the Columbia MD office with a series of questions such as: How many years of experience do you have? (Uh... look at my resume!) What is your desired salary? (Didn't I tell you on the online application?) ...I just ignored the email, because the company had clearly proven to me that they had no respect for my time or effort.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at GP Strategies.

    Interview Details

    During the interview process I met with 5 members of the team. It felt almost like an ambush. The team was dressed in jeans and hoodies and requested that I come in in a suit. It was uncomfortable and unprofessional.
