Senior Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AECOM (Denver, CO) in November 2015.

Interview

Applied online, received initial response within two weeks. Interviewed via telephone, multiple times, versus several panelists each occasion. Panelists varied from HR rep, program managers that Sr PM position would report to, and technical staff that Sr PM would supervise. Overall, the panel interviews were good.

Position would have required relocation to another city away from family, AND be on travel at least 3 weeks per month. Thus, the position required establishing a second residence that would be rarely used.

Biggest issue was past salary. HR seemed hung up on my past salary. When I declined to provide that information, the interview process stalled. (There is no state or federal requirement to share past salary information.)

Total duration of interview process 64 days, from resume submission to "thanks, no thanks" email.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AECOM in October 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process was well organized. The interviewers were very nice and professional. I was a bit put off by the number of steps in the hiring process once an offer had been accepted but I think it was because they were doing the hiring process for an overseas assignment through the US offices. I think it was more funny than frustrating. The interviewers were really nice.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no really difficult or unexpected questions. The interviewers were very good and professional. They did not seem to be trying to trip me up. The whole process was schedule driven and AECOM was on time each and every call or meeting   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offered a great salary but I had to negotiate (hard) to get the appropriate housing and car allowance for an overseas assignment

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AECOM (Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)) in July 2009.

    Interview

    All done professionally. From the first phone call, to the arrangement of the timing, to the experience at the company offices.
    Interviewers asked personality questions, technical questions and general knowledge questions.
    Negotiation of the compensation package took longer than planned, and more effort than hoped for, but was concluded within two weeks of the start of the process.
