The CENTECH GROUP Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Very Easy Interview
Project Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The CENTECH GROUP in September 2009.
Interview Details – Process involved a series of interviews, culminating with the CEO. I know now that all preceding interviews were perfunctory -- the only one that counts is the CEO, who asks increasingly bizarre questions. The questions center on an attempt to identify entrepreneurs, but I learned later entrepreneurship is not allowed -- only talked about.
Interview Question – Do you agree that no good comes of challenging a customer? View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiations -- was easy

Very Easy Interview
Intermediate Systems Administrator Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at The CENTECH GROUP.
Interview Details – Not much of an interview. Not a single technical questions was asked, as they were simply tranferring employees from one employer on an old contract, to a new employer on a new contract. Also, getting lied to about salary adjustments to offset high benefit costs isn't exactly very professional.
And, yes, the spelling of the job title is correct, at least to the employer it was. That was on my actual offer sheet. I guess they never heard of spellcheck.
Interview Question – No questions asked, position was pretty much guaranteed. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. This was basically a transfer from one contract to another, under a new employer, TCG.
Trainer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at The CENTECH GROUP in May 2008.
Interview Details – A former colleague knew of a job, in fact wanted to get someone to take his job (which he did not like). He set up the interview and recommended that I be hired. I interviewed with the training manager with my colleague present. She liked what she heard, checked my references, which were superb, and hired me. The only hitch was the clearance process, which the government contractors screwed up.
Interview Question – Provide samples of training materials that I had produced. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I asked for certain salary, which was above what they were planning on offering me. They thought about for a day or so, checked additional references, got clearance from upper management, and made me the offer.
