2. A telephone interview with a Regional Operations Manager.

Interview Question – What industry are you most interested in working in? Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company.
Interview Details – It starts with a phone screen by HR. The next step was a face-to-face interview with 2 people for 1 hour each. It concluded with a 30-minute writing "test", where they give you 3 topics and you are asked to write a 1-2 page response (as means to assess your communication skills).
This company is all about cultural fit (think "Stepford Wives"). I received feedback that I had a strong project management background, but didn’t seem engaged. I found it to be a strange comment since the 1st person who interviewed me was done at the 30-minute mark and I carried the conversation for the next 30 minutes on a wide variety of work-related (and non-work related) topics.
I applied online - interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company in March 2013.
Interview Details – First round: Phone interview: 30 minutes
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company in November 2009.
Interview Details – The interview process consisted of an initial 30 minute phone interview with a recruiter. A few weeks after this, the company arranged for me to have a couple of face-to-face interviews with senior managers. A few weeks later, the company informed me that they wanted me to visit their headquarters for a day of interviews. Again, the interview format was one-on-one interviews where I spoke of my background and how my skills would fit in at IPM.
There was no formal testing element to the process, and most of the interviews repeated the same format.
Interview Question – When approaching a project, what tools did you use in terms of structuring you approach to finding a solution? Answer Question
Very Difficult Interview
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company in November 2009.
Interview Details – Interview Process consists of 4 steps. Phone screen, skills assessment, individual interviews with two people and then a lunch and individual interviews with four more people. The last person you will interview with is the founder of the company. IPM is very selective in their employees (and rightfully so) as they are a midsized company with a culture of service and spirituality.
The owner very clearly states that they have no desire to take the company public and will not accept anyone who cannot pass the owner's "look" into the person's heart. Full disclosure includes a very clear statement of the company's views on faith (no denomination specified), community service, and civil patriotism.
Built as a consulting company with the HIGHEST ethical standards, be prepared to answer questions about how you handle any unethical crises you've experience in the workplace. Personality symbiosis with all employees you interview with is REQUIRED. Fail to get along swimmingly with even one person and you will be out of the running.
The company does not disclose salary ranges for positions and HR will tell you VERY firmly that they DO NOT negotiate. What they offer you is their one and only offer. Try to haggle and the offer will be withdrawn.
Interview Question – Describe an occasion in a previous position when you were faced with an unethical practice/problem and/or influence and how you handled it. Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company.
Interview Details – Hiring was a 3-4 staged process. There was an initial phone screen by a HR person from the headquarters in Chicago, followed by a local face to face sit down interview. During that interview you are asked questions on leadership history, project management experience, interpersonal skills, communication style, etc. Finally, if eligible, you are flown to the Chicago office for a multi-person interview. You'll get to interview with other PMs, managers, directors, VPs, and finally a face to face with the CEO, Rich Panico. Everyone is very professional. They only want the most qualified individuals.
