Project Coordinator Interview

Project Coordinator
Edison, NJ

Interview Question – Very easy, no difficult questions   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – It was the same as I was currently making. Initial offer was entry level but manager got budget raised. While appreciated, it didn't make sense for me to accept.

Distribution Process Advocate Interview

Distribution Process Advocate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Jacobs Engineering in March 2012.

Interview Details – My initial interview occurred via phone with the hiring manager after his review of my resume. I was hired immediately following the interview and sent to Camp Lejeune, NC and Albany, GA for training prior to moving to my overseas assignment. I met with the hiring manager three days prior to departing for Afghanistan.

Interview Question – The hiring manager asked if I would be able to handle the rigors of Kandahar, Afghanistan due to the high number of rocket attacks occurring on a regular basis. He was quite comfortable with my logistics background and had no serious concern for my work ethic and abilities to perform the job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The hiring manager provided me with the annual salary for Kandahar, but stressed the rigors of being in that particular combat environment as much more impoprtant than being there just because of the high salary.
