Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (Washington, DC) in July 2010.

Interview

This was a massive job fair - not happy with the time spent and the disinterested employees (not hiring managers) I spent some limited time with in a short, noisy ballroom with hundreds of other potential employees. The employee was much younger and snotty. She showed no concern whatsoever as a potential employee of IBM.
