    Project Management Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company (Burr Ridge, IL).

    Interview

    First contact was a face-to-face informational interview with HR, followed by an HR phone screen. There was also an online "personality test" with other screening questions before two in-person interviews in the Chicago office with a Director and Managing Director. The next round consisted of meetings with the CFO and COO in Chicago along with a panel interview that also included a prepared presentation. The last step was a final call with the CEO since he wasn't in the office during the second interview session.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company in October 2017.

    Interview

    My interview process started with a phone screen testing my knowledge on project management. The next phase was an online personality assignment, which tests the fit with the organization. In my next phase, I had a phone interview with one of the Managing Directors. After this, I was called to a local office where I was interviewed by two directors. Then the final step was to interview at the Chicago headquarters office with a panel presentation and multiple rounds of interviews with Managing Directors, COO and CEO. The whole process was an awesome experience as it allowed me to understand the culture and the values of the company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very organized and well thought of. Everything was planed by the recruiting team, I just had to show up.

    As for the interviews, it felt more like a conversation rather than an interview. The interviewers were very cordial, respectful, extremely nice and gave feedback. I learned a lot about IPM and myself through the interview process.

    All in all, it was a good experience and I had the chance to interact with smart and down to earth people. The whole team, from the recruiters to senior management were great!

    Interview

    The interview process for me involved four distinct rounds of interviews. At first I was interviewed over the phone. After that, I met in person with someone that would be my direct boss. For the next round, I met with two different Regional Directors. The last round of interviews took place at IPM's headquarters. This round included a round table discussion, a meeting with an employee at the same position I was applying for, and a meeting with the president of the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    To begin with, process was fairly typical - one hour phone interview followed by diagnostic test before second round was scheduled. Second round took place in local office as a 1:1 interview with the Managing Director. Final round was a half-day in the main office (Chicago) where there was a mix of 1:1 interviews (including founder/President), panel interview/presentation and lunch. All in all, I left with a very positive impression of the company and it's people and while I wished the results had been different, I wish the company as a whole nothing but the best and they continue to grow (especially in the local Twin Cities market). Before beginning process I'd never heard of this company but now I'm glad I know of it and would recommend it to others either looking for challenge or as potential clients.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company (Burr Ridge, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    So honestly this was quite a riot! I learned about IPM through Forbes and was intrigued about the opportunity to work a for a company who placed so much emphasis on values based culture. I received notice from one of the recruiters about two weeks later after applying to schedule an initial phone screen. I had a very relaxed call with a member from IPM and got such a warm and pleasant vibe from this first individual. I was instructed to fill out an assessment to ultimately determine my fit within the ideal PMC. I then met with a local office director to assess my skills and background. I felt very impressed with the level of questioning and engagement from the employer. My second interview at the regional office included meetings with managing directors and account managers where at this phase in the recruitment process, further reinforcement of your key skill set and fit into the office was gauged. I was finally asked to meet with the front office in Burr Ridge. This meeting was most likely a culture and values oriented interview but the request was very personal and one that tested your ability to persevere through a very unique experience. By this point if I've lost you, you probably aren't built to be a member of the IPM family and Godspeed in whatever you choose. I was given an offer just about one week later and I'm happy I decided to join this organization. One that walks the walk and encourages all of its very integrated members within the company to be the best they can possibly be. First class, all the way!
