    Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    I applied online. Received a phone call from a talent recruiter two weeks later. Scheduled a phone interview for one week later. Had the phone interview in which I was asked questions regarding my resume to ensure that I had the job experience (not so much skills) to do the job. Had one in person interview in which I was asked only behavioral questions such as what my managerial style was, how I would handle difficulty with employees on the job, if I had ever had to multitask in a job, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • The many behavioral questions that I was asked: what would I do if I knew an employee was performing poorly or inappropriately, what I would do if I was in a disagreement with my boss, etc.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bombardier.

    Interview

    Be prepared to wait and wait. Interview is the same questions that they have used for the past 15 years. If you are hiring on direct be prepared to negotiate. Typical phone with HR and then with the manager and then a round table with managers, HR rep and leads. Nothing changes in the questions.

    Negotiation

    Easy when they hire you direct. Little to none if you start as a contractor.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bombardier (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Applied online, Got back to me after about a month after I applied. Initial call was from canada, a HR I guess. Was okayish call, asked me about my background. Then he set up a phone interview for the next week. That went well. Interview was mostly about basic programming stuff involving networks, coding etc. As they were satisfied, they set up an onsite interview at Pittsburg which was okay and followed the interview with a tour of the office, I was impressed and liked the office verymuch. Apparently that went well too and they got back to me after a month saying they made an offer. I made some calls in the meanwhile, they responded to one or two and gave positive feedback about the interview but were very very slow in the final response.

    Interview Questions

    • Cant give out questions, thats unethical. However, they are definitely not impossible(read it moderately easy) to answer for an above average graduate student/ 1-2 years of work exp guy.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    They were paying very less compared to what I am expecting in a city like Pittsburgh.

    Interview

    It took 2 wks. Technical and behavior questions.Not hard. But the people there was not curious about me at all. It made me awkward somehow. There were three of us to do the interview, one people got the offer. I would say the position is a little competitive there.
