Contract Administrator Interview

Contract Administrator

I applied in-person and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Saipem.

Interview Details – I've been firstly contacted through phone for a pre-selection chat. After that I've been invited to have a regular interview in the Milan offices where many people, not only HR but also representatives of my department asked more informations and details about my work, personality and the usual things. I've been asked to draft a letter to a Client after a case of Force Majeure and to give my impressions about this hypothetical scenario. After the interview, I received another phone call to be informed I was short-listed. After that a second interview with the dept. head was organized to have a final feed-back from him.

Interview Questions

  • During the HR interview, most questions were asked to make the candidate spew venom and negativity on former employers, e.g. What were the worst moments, what did you dislike about that experience, what are your weaknesses...

    A personality test was carried out but the results were not compared to the profile expected for this position.

    The person invited me to ask questions but refused to answer most of them.
