    Associate Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pomona, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pomona, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Henkels & McCoy.

    Interview Details

    Applied online in January, called for a phone interview in March, an in-person interview late March, and offered in April.

    The phone interview was very informal. The hiring manager/supervisor and HR manager spoke to me about the position, talked about previous work experience, and didn't ask any difficult, technical questions.

    The in-person interview had the same two along with two regional executives. That interview was much more detailed on previous work experience, once again went over the position, and what I studied in school. Overall pretty easy interviews.

    Interview Details

    Very straight forward process. Began with a telephone screen and then they brought me into the office. It was a panel interview. Questions directly related to my experience and the job position. The team was also measuring my fit. This was a large piece of the process. How would I fit into the group and company culture.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Henkels & McCoy.

    Interview Details

    Steve from HR called me about a month after I applied, very nice, thorough and helpful as well as in his follow up emails. He set up two interviews and gave a good information about people I would be meeting with. Interview explained job role well.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked a question that was somewhat confusing at the time but made a lot of sense later. They asked how I would deal with monitoring the work done by payroll administrators even as I was not their supervisor but was still responsible for the accuracy and quality of their work. Ironically, this question rang in my ears for a long time--it was definitely a dilemma.   View Answers (2)
    Negotiation Details
    In my application I didn't ask for much of a raise from what I was making elsewhere due to the great need for a new job, during the interview I answered I would entertain any fair offer, when the offer letter came they offered me a considerable raise but with salary exempt status--previously I was hourly non-exempt.

    Project Controller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Renovo, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Henkels & McCoy in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was very short and over the phone. They needed someone fast to cover a job in Pennsylvania and they hired me sight unseen. At first, it seemed very legit. The man I spoke with seemed very well spoken and intelligent. I later saw the real side of the company. Their project and company planning was as disastrous as their hiring process. A bunch of people doing different things using dated technology that all just argue constantly.

    Interview Questions
    • None...they asked no difficult questions. Maybe "Where did you go to college and what degree did you receive?" Literally, that was it.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate. The money was great starting out ($2,000/week). I was thrilled. I thought I would receive this 52 weeks out of the year. I got cut wayyy back once they sent me back to the estimating office.

    I sent my credentials to a recruiter posting a job online. He called me the same day to set up a phone interview with the regional director. The next week I called the director and we talked for about 45 minutes. There were a number of fast-paced technical concept questions and a few on experience. Then there was space for my questions. The next day the recruiter called me and said they were extending an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Henkels & McCoy in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview set up with HR Manager, Lead Scheduler & Project Management Director. After the interview it seemed like they were really impressed & interested (and they genuinely were). But being an international I needed visa sponsorship to which they denied after inquiring with their HR department.

    Interview process was very technical from the beginning as HR did not show up. Project Director & Scheduler both grilled pretty well regarding my experience and expertise. They will ask you in detail about your experience

    Q1. Tell me about your exp?
    Q2. What is your scheduling exp?
    Q3 Since when are you using P6, P3 & MSP
    Q4. Have you used resource leveling?
    Q5 Walk me through the process of developing a schedule (step by step ans is expected)

    I had done good research about all the people who were interviewing me. And they appreciate that fact. I had a 30 min interview which went on for 45-50 mins
