    Digital Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Riverwoods, IL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discover (Riverwoods, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Completed a phone interview, then a month later visited the corporate office in Riverwoods, IL for an in-person interview. Discover offered to fly me & cover hotel since I was from out of town. I drove instead so they covered gas. Very nice of them and appreciated. The interview lasted 4 hours. Met a series of people from Director, to Supervisor, to Managers to the team from different departments. All were very nice. Questions were easy. They were more focused on describing to me what the job would be, and my experience in similar roles. The only issue was in logistics with the conference room HR has placed the interview in. The room I was supposed to be in was not available due to office renovation, so they had me in an impromptu room which made it a bit difficult for everyone else to find the right room I was in.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Discover (Riverwoods, IL) in September 2010.

    Interview

    HR Interview - The 1st step was a initial screening by the HR. Very general questions, nothing specific. Simple and nice. I was then scheduled for a phone interview about 2-3 days later
    Phone Interview - The phone interview was with the Management. General behavioural questions ..nothing technical.
    Face to face interview - After about a 1 week got a call for a face to face interview. Lot of technical questions specific to the job I had applied. Got a call after 1 week that I was hired !
    Tip: Be confident and prepare for the interview. Definitely helps...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Discover (Riverwoods, IL).

    Interview

    Applied online, and the hiring manager contacted me directly. First round was a 40 mins phone interview focusing on my background and the job descriptions. Second round was a 3-hr onsite interview with 4 people. They asked very detailed SAS questions, I mean you have to answer them with the exact SAS codes and some behavioral questions as well. I think it's not that hard if you are prepared.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Discover.

    Interview

    Applied for the job and HR called me within several weeks. The following took place:

    An HR recruiter interviewed me over the phone and after he deemed me "fit for the job" he passed my resume onto the hiring manager.

    HR called me back and I was brought in for interviews (Riverwoods, IL). They have two buildings connected to one another. HR is in building 2, which is where I parked. I walked in and an Admin from the group walked me in. We had to walk to building 1, which took about 5 minutes.

    They put me in a room on the lower level where there was water, soda and snacks. I interviewed with 3 people from the team and then the fourth interview was with HR.

    I was called less than a week later to come back in and meet the Sr. Manager. I met with him once and he offered me the job.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The pay grades are broad and they overlap. In Riverwoods, the pay grades for an exempt position are roughly:

    5 - Associate
    6 - Sr. Associate / Project Manager
    7 - Project Manager
    8 - Manager
    9 - Sr. Manager

    There is a low, mid and high range on the pay grades. If you get hired on the low end, you are usually stuck on the low end each time you get promoted. Negotiate at the time of hire and make sure you are at least at the mid to high end of your pay scale.
