    Project Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Marek Brothers Systems.

    Interview Details

    Rather strange. No Business Cards given and no last name for the man who did the phone interview or the first person in the in-person interview. Seemed very uneasy and had no idea how to interview. No idea why he was even interviewing me as I wouldn't think the position would have very much to do with his position. The second person was better - even told me his whole name. I always ask why the position is open and he was VERY put out by that. Wanted me to ask questions but then was very put out by my daring to. Did not want to answer - could tell he was used to getting his own way.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Marek Brothers Systems in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact made via email, and then set up a dinner interview in which the company paid for us to sit down and have a comfortable, relaxed environment to discuss the employment opportunity. Great guys interviewed me, made me feel like a part of the team and company right from the start, and they were very focused on making it not tense.

    Project Manager/Estimator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Marek Brothers Systems in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Folks are friendly. I interviewed twice. First with who would be my immediate boss and his boss. Second interview was with 'his boss' and houston president. I thought they seemed to have a lot of confidence in me because of my experience, I think instead it was because I was referred. All the project managers are male. Assistants and receptionists are female. Seems like a friendly environment. Most have private offices.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    Regardless of my experience, my offer was for an entry level person which was too low to sustain myself. Benefits like PTO days, eligibility for raises and bonuses were minimal compared to my previous employments. The job description and the people I met were all great. I wish it would have worked out.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Marek Brothers Systems in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview and hiring process went very well. I came recommended by a respected employee so I assume this played a big part in the ease of the interview. The interview was more of a meet and greet rather than a weeding out process. They had just let go of the previous person in the position and they had not begun officially looking for another candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • Are you willing to work long hours behind a desk? (Translation - The last 2 employees couldn't handle 10 hrs per day at a computer)   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Yes. I was able to negotiate a slightly higher starting salary.
