Project Manager Interview

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Esri (Redlands, CA) in August 2010.

Interview

About 1 week before the interview, I received a phone call from HR for a screening. I then received a follow up call from the hiring manager the very next day. There was additional interest on both sides, and I was contacted the following day for an interview about 1 1/2 week from that date. I was then interviewed by 10 people, most individually and one panel of 3 later in the day. The day started and ended with a small HR introduction, interview then closure. It was a grueling day, at best, but they were a warm bunch in a very unique environment. One that was something I think I'd enjoy. I was told I was the top candidate, but never officially received a "yes" or "no". After some time, I received additional job offers from other companies and never did hear back from ESRI. No closure, but all in all, it really seemed like a good, hearty place most would enjoy, regardless of winding up in a very different industry in another job. Oh well!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Esri in June 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter because I was in their system from a job I applied for about a year prior. We had a phone interview that went a lot longer than either of us planned.

    Afterwards I sent an updated resume and tailored cover letter to her, and she forwarded it to the hiring manager. I was not actively looking for a job, but the Living Atlas product is amazing, so I was definitely interested in the position.

    A few weeks went by and she sent emails with status updates regularly.

    Then she asked for another phone call, and in that call she explained that they promoted someone from within to fill the role. I told her that while I really wanted that position, I have to respect the fact that they look after their employees.

    It was a real bummer because I wanted that position. Even though the outcome is not what I wanted, I have to say that this recruiter was one of the most respectful recruiters I have been in contact with, and they seem like a great company!

    Got a email from a recruiter in CA and set up a time to talk to do a phone interview lasted half hour.
