    Proposal Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amec Foster Wheeler (Chandler, AZ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website and received a call from their recruiter about a week later. The conversation went well with the recruiter, and she wanted to have me meet the team in Chandler. I interviewed with their marketing proposal manager and another coordinator, as well as their Office Manager and Lead for the West Region. The interview went well, and they asked me questions for about 2.5 hours (this was really long!). The coordinator who participated in the interview was very sarcastic, made some side comments that didn't seem to give me an overall good impression of the team, and complained a lot about having a lot of work to do. I asked them all to tell me what they would change about their positions and why. All of them said nothing. I thought this was interesting that none of them could think of a way to grow their current positions. Afterwards, they had me complete grammar test and asked me to recreate a graphic on the proposal manager's computer using an Adobe program of my choice.

    A few days later they contacted my references (I gave them four, all previous supervisors whom I worked closely with) and all of my references let me know they were contacted. They told me one question asked by the recruiter was "what is one of their faults?" I don't know why they would ask a reference to say something negative about the applicant, and it immediately made me think twice about whether I'd want to work for a company that would ask that to a reference.

    A few days later a received a call from a previous coworker, whom I did not list as a reference, saying that she was contacted by them and that they were contacting another previous coworker, who I did not end on the best of terms with. I gave them four references to contact, but they went outside of my list and started to call other people whom I didn't list. I knew this would not be the company for me, and I received a call a couple days later letting me know they went with another applicant.

    Advice #1, Do not under estimate yourself when it comes to Salary. You need to be aggressive as if you get a job your salary may not change for the next 3 years (Specially if you are working on a long project). Life get expensive but your salary remain the same. GOOD BONUS Though.
