Interview

HR screening and group interview of three panelists . I was pretty much disappointed by the process - one of panelist did not pay attention during the interview and another one was asking 4-5 questions why I applied for this position if I do not have straightforward background for it. Not sure why I got shortlisted for interview if they search for somebody with clear cut background in project management. Probably list of time . Never heard back despite several follow up emails. Obviously they do not care about applicants too much . Just a number

I applied online. The process took 6 months. I interviewed at Population Services International (Abuja, Federal Capital Territory) in May 2021

Interview

Virtual, two-stage personal interview, perhaps due to the ongoing pandemic. Went well, to my mind. No reason was given for not being selected even though the role was perfectly aligned to my competencies and strength. Expected prospective employer to make an offer.

Interview Questions

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Population Services International in Apr 2021

Interview

I applied online and the next day, an HR Manager reached out to schedule a phone screening. We spoke for about a half hour walking through my resume, interest in the role and details about PSI. The following day, the hiring manager for the role reached out to schedule a video call. It took a lot of back and forth but I got something on the books the following week. That call included 3 people and lasted about an hour. We spoke mostly of the same things in a little more detail. They followed up immediately afterwards inviting me to round three. I was told round three consisted of a writing test and a final interview where I'd present what I wrote. They asked me to indicate a 48 hour period the following week in which I'd have time to complete the assignment. They scheduled the interview for noon on Wednesday and told me they'd send the assignment before noon Monday. Monday morning came and went with no email. I reached out to the hiring manager and there was some confusion on who was sending it. I received it after 2pm. Unfortunately, over the course of 2 work days, the assignment took almost 20 hours to complete. It included 2 fleshed out communications plans and a website analysis. This is challenging for anyone with a job. The last round interview was with 2 people on the same project in a different department. I was told it came down to myself and another candidate and it ultimately went to the other candidate. The pros were that everyone was super kind and smart. The cons were that the assignment was massively time consuming and near impossible for anyone with another job.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Population Services International in Jan 2021

Interview

I met with a recruiter and then a senior staff member I’d be reporting to. They were pleasant, easy to talk to and the interview went well in my opinion. Questions were standard. What I wasn’t impressed with is that it took them a month to get back to me to tell me they’d gone with someone else, despite a few emails to enquire.
