    IT Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GE (Trevose, PA).

    Interview

    Submitted resume on-line. Within a few days was contacted by the hiring manager for a brief telephone screening interview. This was followed up with a face-to-face interview, where I met with the hiring manager and HR manager. I then participated in 2 additional phone interviews with people who would be peers. The interview process was cordial and professional, but everyone I met had meetings scheduled within 45 minutes of our meeting start time. In all cases they terminated the interview exactly at their planned meeting time, which left me feeling rushed to try to ask all of my questions. Only one interviewer offered to call me back immediately after his meeting to finish the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Two different interviewers asked me the same question: Describe a time where you had to make an unpopular decision and stand by it.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at GE in November 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted through HireVue, Video Stream. You see yourself in one window and once the interviewer dials in, you see him/her in a second window. The quality was catastrophic. The picture froze up many times and the voice had an echo. So I had to ask my interviewer several times to repeat the question and had several times the (wrong) impression that he said something while I was talking. It was bad and the interviewer definitely took this out on me.

    Interview Questions

    • With the above scenario the interviewer took a phone call while interviewing me and told me after a short time "thank you, that's enough".   1 Answer

    Project Manager - IT Security Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GE.

    Interview

    Very long and drawn out with a series of phone interviews and a final day of interviewing with multiple managers. The whole process took about a month and was very repetitive and mundane, which contributed to my lack of excitement towards the job at the end. The phone interviews, with different people, often asked me the exact same behavioral and situation-based questions so it was clear the interviewers were not communicating together. Some of the questions were challenging if you had limited experience with an exact or similar situation, but they were generally easy to walk through and they are just looking for your analytical and social thought process. Ultimately, I did not feel the values and personality traits of the team I interviewed with aligned well, as they are looking for a specific mold and expect you to emulate that, however I have a feeling this varies by the specific team and/or manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a situation where you were consulting on a project and you had to tell the client/customer that their intended direction was not correct or effective and how you convinced them to go with your desired solution/ideas instead.   Answer Question
