Project Manager Interview

No Offer
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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IBM in March 2013.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and one face to face. Pretty easy going and informal. Don't think there was a formal process set up for the role I applied for. The psychometric was pretty strange too.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Transfered in under TUPE. Interview process was a joke, utterly disorganised and I felt I was interviewing them! Knew I'd got a job (half of us were made redundant) as the IBM rep seemed to be clutching at straws to find something to ask me due to lack of prep on his part.

    Interview Questions

    • "So, what do you do then?". Total lack of prep for interview. Amateurish.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Comical, as they had no idea what they were doing.
