    Consulting Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at International SOS.

    Interview

    I had gone through 4 rounds of interviews and they wanted me to do a technical interview regarding a product that was new and there wasn't a lot of information about, and I had no access to any information about it. During the inital rounds they made jokes about "living at the office". At that point I withdrew my application.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Feasterville Trevose, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at International SOS (Feasterville Trevose, PA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Their response was very quick and they schedule phone screen.
    Phone screen was not really typical by content, just talked about what they are looking in candidates. No technical questions was asked and I have to lead conversation because interviewer was not really qualified to talk about any technical details and she don’t know what to ask. She even does not know what version of Visual Studio they are using. Very strange feeling about it, but they still ask me to go for a face to face.
    I was interviewed in Trevose, PA. It is one of those companies who determine your IT development skills based on some factors. They don’t ask any technical question, just conversation about unrelated topics. First, I talked to Architect (strange title and unusual guy) who was not prepared and don’t have any plan how to conduct the interview. He was only a few weeks on the job. Second person was that same interviewer from phone screen. After talking to her you would ask yourself: how she managed to get that job. Seems to me she does not demonstrate any qualifications to be in any managerial role, but her title was a Director. It was same type of conversation about nothing. After I left their building, I was hoping not to come back and my wishes come true, they pass on me and I don’t have to deal with those people anymore. Hope it would help some how to deal with them.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at International SOS (Trevose, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I found the position on LinkedIn jobs and submitted my application. After between 2-3 weeks, I reached out to the corporate recruiter (Joe) via email reiterating my interest and connected with him on LinkedIn. Straight away he set me up for a phone interview, and then an in person interview. Manager Rory conducted my interview. Both Joe and Rory were very cordial and informative, projecting respect and appreciation for employees and for the position. I was contacted the following day after the interview with an offer, which I accepted. I really like the amount of support that is offered in the position, the multi-cultural environment, and the opportunities for growth. The company has a three year professional development program including formal mentorship to promote internal growth.
