    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Procurian in January 2012.

    Interview

    I interviewed back in January while the company was still called ICG Commerce. I initially had a phone interview with HR, followed by a trip to King of Prussia for a long day of interviews. Overall, I had a very good experience with the interview process. The interview was set up with different team members and I was impressed with the very diverse background most of them had, which I find positive in terms of team contribution and very strategic. Most interview questions were experience and knowledge based. All the people I interviewed with were very open and seemed sincere with their answers as well as pretty clear with thei expectations. Very young team, and most have held several positions within ICG, or have been with ICG for a long time. I didn’t care for the open floor environment – just a personal preference.

    Interview Questions

    • Work experience and some situational type of questions.   Answer Question

    Sourcing Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in King of Prussia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Procurian (King of Prussia, PA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Since I worked for one of their competitors it seemed a transparent attempt to gather info about my former employer who also sells procurement as a service. They didn't discuss the potential job, work expectations, etc. They were far more interested in how my former employer gathered data on market prices, etc. Not a positive experience as I was far more knowledgeable than the people I interviewed with. A former colleague also interviewed with them about the same time (for an alleged different position) and had the same impression.

    Interview Questions

    • Numerous questions related to understanding whether a service is competitively priced.   Answer Question
