    Project Management Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at CDI Engineering Solutions in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was with the recruiter who covered some basic questions and then arranged for the interview with the hiring manager. There was no initial phone screen interview with the hiring manager. Interview with the hiring manager was about 90 minutes and covered a lot of what CDI does in Cincinnati and what this role would entail. The immediate people that I interviewed with were open and made the position with CDI of interest to me.

    A verbal offer was made about a week later by the recruiter who expected me to give my answer at that instant. I asked for information on the benefits (medical insurance, PTO, 401-K, etc.) as part of the offer and was told that CDI only released that information once a verbal acceptance had been given. I told the recruiter that I could not accept a job offer without knowing the benefits and employment contract.

    I contacted CDI Corporate HR about 10 days later and eventually did get the information but only after some conversation with the HR manager. The benefits are substandard in my opinion and there is a 90-day non-compete clause in the employment contract. I declined the offer and the entire process left a negative opinion of CDI. If CDI is willing to treat people they are looking to hire in this manner, how will CDI treat their own employees.
