- No OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GalaxE.Solutions (Phillipsburg, NJ) in April 2015.
I had an initial conversation with a recruiter about a week and a half ago. After discussing my qualifications and salary requirements, she got back to me and scheduled a Phone Interview with a senior resource. The Phone interview was held at 6:00 so I was able to take it after work. The interviewer was very Manager knowledgeable in Project Management concepts and the use of MS Project.
- Most of the questions were general Project Management questions, but some were specific to how certain situations are handled and managed in MS Project (like lead and lag). 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GalaxE.Solutions (Detroit, MI).
The interview process was pretty standard up until the end of my in-person interview. I received a call from a recruiter about the position. They did not know much about the role but did provide the basics. The call ended about 10 minutes later with the expectation I would receive a follow-up call to schedule an in-person interview with the hiring manager who was head of HR at the Detroit office. The interview was scheduled over a week later. Fast forward to the in-person interview: The instructions to get to the office and the friendliness of the reception staff were great. The meeting with the HR hiring manager was pretty standard as well. She asked about my qualifications and then turned the table over to me for questions. We had a good conversation about the needs of the company and while in mid-conversation and only two questions in, the interviewer ended our meeting by closing her book with my resume, said "it sounds like you do what I do in my job" and then reached her hand across the table to thank me for coming in. The experience left me speechless as I was rushed out the door towards the lobby. Needless to say, I received a rejection letter via email less than 48 hours after the interview. My advice to the HR GalaxE Solutions team would include a couple things. First, make sure to better align the job description with the true needs of the company so that overqualified individuals do not pass through to the in-person interview. Second, it has never been best practice in my experience to abruptly end an interview in the manner in which I experienced. Everyone, even HR professionals, can benefit from professional coaching as well as reviewing best practices to ensure they attract the best candidate for their company.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at GalaxE.Solutions (Somerset, NJ) in September 2011.
I had several telephone interviews with internal HR recruiter, who was quite nice and very professional. After getting through that round, I was scheduled for a follow-up interview with hiring manager. I took a half day of vacation from my current job to await the phone call. He never called. Later that day, I spoke again with a now-embarrassed HR rep who rescheduled another telephone interview. Again, the hiring manager never called, never emailed, never apologized or rescheduled. Very unprofessional. I withdrew my application. If these people can't keep appointments, I can't imagine how they bring projects in on time.

Three interviews over two days. Focused on skills, tools and technologies. Questions were elementary and not challenging.
