    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    interviewed at Metrolinx in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Long and drawn out process from when you fill out the online application to getting the call to come for an interview was quite long. It was a panel interview with recruiter and hiring manager present. I found the interview very formal and a bit stuffy which created a very anxious environment.

    Interview Questions
    • It wasn't that it was unexpected. It was the questions were segmented by technical and behavioural questions. However, I didn't consider the questions asked to be technical from a project management perspective...   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Metrolinx.

    Interview Details

    Essentially was mainly one phone interview. Lasted about 15 minutes and was pretty standard. General questions about past experience, interest in the company, and next steps moving forward. Pretty straight forward and easy to get through. Generally afterwards, discuss terms of the contract and acceptance of offer. Getting called is really the hardest part in this case.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Metrolinx in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online by submitting resume only and got a call 2.5 months later for interview. Panel interview consists of 2 managers and recruiter. The interviewers were very nice and courteous; However, the construction along front street and York was very disruptive during the interview. Could hardly hear the interviewers's questions; that could have impacted the outcome.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions are fairly easy if you are prepared and can easily relate your experience to the answer. However, one thing I had a problem was that because of the construction outside.. it was very difficult to listen to the interview reading one of the test questions (this should have been a written test) and that she has a strong accent made it even more difficult to understand what she is saying. I had to ask the interviewer to repeat reading "her paragraphs".
      Questions asked:
      What would you do if I give you a software patch?
      Describe how you handle a difficult challenge or project?
      Describe a time where you are able demonstrate systematic thinking?
      What's your salary expectation? I mentioned my figure; I think they didn't like that.. although the job desc specifies the salary range.. Better answer could have been my salary exp is within the salary range... or I am expecting mid - $$ ( whichever is the midpoint of the salary range posted).
      When can you start? (always say 'anytime' or 'asap').

    Interview Details

    I applied on the agency website and they called me 2 weeks later to invite me for a technical test. The test had about 12 essay style questions on technologies that they use. I wrote the test with a group of 10 other applicants and was told that they will call two weeks later if I pass to invite me for interview. Two weeks later, they called me but I was no longer on the market.
