    I worked at Colony Display Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some very good people in senior management

    Cons

    Owners would not listen. Would not allow improvements to occur. Would make uninformed decisions. Kept non performing people, resistant to spending money on systems.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Colony Display Systems in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Met with several people. My second interview was a hot day - 90 plus degrees. I had to wait in the vestibule with full sun, no air conditioning for 10 plus minutes. Interviewed with the COO a couple of times, he asked very unethical questions. He was more interested in my past employers financials than what I could do to help Colony. I actually was interviewing for sales, due to my non-compete, was hired as a project manager until non-compete was over, at which time I would move into sales. That never happened. In the end, they hired me to get a list of my past clients - they even offered me a pay increase to stay as a project manger but in return, needed to hand over a full client list including names/phone numbers/titles.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the interview was asking questions about my past employers financials. Very uncomfortable situation.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No, I was trying for more vacation time and they wouldn't even negotiate that. Had the economy not been so bad at that time, I would never have accepted the job. I should have listened to my instincts.
