    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied online through the company website and almost immediately received a call from the recruiter. Was impressed over the phone w the prospects of working here - an interview was set up to meet w a few companymen. I really enjoyed sitting w all the interviewers minus one. One of the interviewers came off as condescending. He belittled work experience, and from start to finish he talked about his personal accomplishments at Hill in great detail. He asked one question in the half hour, I couldn't get a word in, and when I did speak it's like he was totally disinterested.

    Recruiter was going to reach out to me w I'm the week w news, but that didn't happen. When I did follow up I was provided w no definitive information. 'It can take a few weeks or four months, I don't know.' Very disappointed to say the least, but I'd be hesitant to work here if I had gotten an offer.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hill International (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was a quick process. I had a phone screen with the recruiter (great guy!). It was a straight forward phone screening discussion where the recruiter explained the opportunity to me, asked me a few questions about my resume and asked me what salary I'm looking for. I asked him for the salary range to avoid pricing myself out of the running and he told me. That's a rarity so I really liked his openness.

    About a week and a half later, I was set up for a phone interview with an Sr Vice President. He wanted to know more specifics about my experience and he also went over the needs of the position. He wanted to meet with me in person so we set something up for the next day. I had the opportunity to ask him about himself, the company, and the position. It was a very easy conversation. I called the recruiter that day to tell him how it went and to tell him if I wanted to continue the process. I did. The recruiter was really great at letting me know how the SVP liked the interview and what the next steps were. Everything moved really fast.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hill International (Marlton, NJ).

    Interview

    Telephone interview + HQ interview then local (final) chat. Very simple and nothing to worry about whatsoever. Actually the people come across pretty well. Nothing technical more inquisitive. They are interested in contacts and what business can be bought into the company. This is the primary reason for hiring a person - the technical abilities appear to be secondary.
