    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Robbins-Gioia in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the opportunity online. I was contacted via email and voicemail by a recruiter to schedule an initial phone call. We spoke about my experiences. She disclosed that although widely advertised the position didn't actually exist yet as the company was waiting on final contract approvals from a third party company. It became unclear to as to whether this job was a temporary contract job or a consulting assignment for a long term permanent consultant position. The recruiter couldn't answer or address that confusion. The recruiter suggested that i fill out an application so that she could thoroughly see what other red flags I posed. The wording of her statements turned me off plus the job was in a pending approval status so I just ceased contact with Robbins goia

No personality, technical skill or other tests. In all, one of the better experiences I've had in interviewing.

    Interview Questions

    • None; interview was thorough regarding technical project management and project management, but all questions were well within the boundaries of the discipline(s).   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation per se; company couldn't afford salary so the difference was split into a signing bonus for the first year with catch-up to my asking price after that. (Standard procedure).
