Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC

Application Details

The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM in July 2010.

Interview Details

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.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at IBM in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    My last interview was internal, so moving laterally inside the company. It was fairly straightforward. He led off with general interest question, (where from, interests, etc). Most questions were about my previous roles, challenging situations I found my self in and how I resolved. Also some questions that appear to be HR scripted and required the box to be checked ("Do you like new technology", or something odd like that)

    The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Internal interview for a new role. Telephone interview was good and I had positive feedback. 1:1 interview was not good. Manager had little interview experience and did not sell the role to me. I felt awkward asking questions, which although the manager may have thought irrelevant to her they were relevant to me.
