HR & management seem to be wrapped up in being politically correct in all aspects. They need to loosen up and relax a little.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Project Management Institute in July 2011.Interview Details
The HR department was exceptional to work with during the interview process. After submitted my resume online through a job site, I was contacted by PMI's recruiter and interviewed over the phone. It was a standard interview to give me general details about the organization and job as well as to vet me for an in-person interview. The interview was scheduled and the recruiter kept me very informed (via phone and email) regarding timing, date, location, directions and what to expect in the interview.
The first of two in-person interviews lasted approximately 45 minutes to an hour. It was with the supervisor of the position for which I was applying. Details were given about the position, organizational and departmental goals, and expectations. Questions were asked about qualifications and past experience, as well as off-the-cuff assessment of ways the job could/would be approached.
The second in-person interview lasted approximately 2 hours, and was a series of one-on-one interviews with three different people (each lasting approximately 30 minutes). I interviewed with the managers of two departments in which I would be working directly, as well as the VP of the division in which I would be working. The last portion of the time I was there for this interview, I met with the recruiter with whom I had been communicating to ask/have answered any general questions. At that time the recruiter communicated when I could expect to hear back about the interview results and what the next steps of the process would be.
The recruiter then contacted me (within the expected time frame) to let me know that an offer letter was being sent to me via email and postal mail. Once the offer letter was reviewed, signed and returned to the organization, I had to authorize that background and credit checks could be performed. Once all of that was passed, a start date was agreed upon and I was officially hired.Interview Questions
