Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (Washington, DC) in July 2010.

Interview

This was a massive job fair - not happy with the time spent and the disinterested employees (not hiring managers) I spent some limited time with in a short, noisy ballroom with hundreds of other potential employees.

The employee was much younger and snotty. She showed no concern whatsoever as a potential employee of IBM.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at IBM (Preston, North West England, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Screening call which was followed by IPAT online test. Online test was basically IQ + analytic test. It was difficult for me as I am not very good at these kind of test. After clearing the online test I was called for Assessment day. Assessment day included 2 group. Activity one did not have right or wrong answers. We are tasked to organise a apprentice hiring event within a set budget, venue and speaker. 2nd Group activity has right and wrong answer. We were to find out the who is interviewing whom and for what role. It was more like solving a riddle with the clues provided. Following the group activity I had 2 interview, 1st interview was technical and 2nd was by a business manager.
