Interview Details – My last interview was and internal job posting and I fell these are the most difficult because you have to interview with individuals that you have worked with in the past.

Senior Business Consulting Manager Interview

Senior Business Consulting Manager

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Watlow Electric Manufacturing in January 2010.

Interview Details – The HR recruiter called first to ensure that I would be willing to interview for this position even though the salary was lower. I explained that I often return real value ($$) in my roles and still wanted to continue looking into the opportunity. A phone interview was arranged with the IT Director out of St. Louis. It lasted about 2 hours. We discussed the challenges in the job, the IT organization, the business, IT strategy (or lack of it), people, etc. He was very gracious and open in the conversation which enabled me to make a clear assessment of the position.
