    Lead Analyst/Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days - interviewed at KeyBank.

    Interview Details

    While I have participated and conducted both group and individual interviews, it is my personal preference to have one on one interview. This fosters better communication and blend between the applicant and the hiring official. Questions that involve career aspirations are always helpful as it displays the direction for the applicant.

    Interview Questions
    • Personal feelings and/or opinions about prior management. Styles are important to understand but feelings that are perceived as personal are difficult as they may or may not articulate management style (i.e. micro managing).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Yes, I was able to negotiate. My recommendation for others considering an offer would be to consider everything in the offer not just pay.

    Applied online for a "Hiring Event." Was contacted by a recruiter about a week later who asked a series of initial screening questions and immediately invited me to the hiring event. Got to the event, which was being held that Friday and interviewed with about 4 different ARL's for about 10 minutes each. There was a group of about 5 candidates there at the same time as me. At the end of the day they either offered a job or told you to go home.
