Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Peoria, IL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Caterpillar (Peoria, IL).

Interview

The interview will be completed by three current employees. Usually one is your boss, a fellow coworker and another manager that reports to the same general manager as your boss. The questions follow the SMART format, situation, measurable action, results and time. Each individual rates your score basically from a 1-5. After the interview, they make a consensus to determine what your overall score should be. Best overall score would either be offered the job or the top candidates might go through a second round interview.

    Was referred by someone I know within the company. The interview process was a standard Targeted Selection interview. Questions similar to what is used with Gallup. Typically 1 - 2 people interview you for the position. The interview / approval process internally took about 30 days.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Caterpillar (Peoria, IL) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Interview process was short and rather informal. I met with the hiring manager and two other project managers to discuss my employment background and why I was interested in the job opening. They also asked some of the more common job interview questions that were relatively easy to answer. I felt the interview was based more on your personality and emotional intelligence than your technical and business aptitude.
