    Associate Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Professional Research Consultants (Omaha, NE) in November 2018.

    Interview

    A fairly detailed process. After the application you come in for spelling/wonderlic/aptitude tests/additional tests for your role. After that, if they like your scores you have a meeting with the VP/CEOs wife, which is pretty informal just to see if you're a good culture fit. If you are, you take another personality test. If you get that far, you will get another interview with the department manager, which is basically the last step. You probably will get the job if you make it that far and they like you.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you comfortable using technology, tell me about a time when... Etc.   Answer Question

    Telephone Interviewer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Professional Research Consultants (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    Went in for my interview, checked in at front desk. My interview was performed in a front room area near the front desk.

    The interviewer was pleasant. We talked about my abilities, and what the job entails. I had to take a typing and accuracy test, which was simple. I had to read a list of medical terms for pronunciation purposes. I went through a survey to see how comfortable I was with the material, which was easy. The interview took approximately 25 minutes.

    They said my application had to go through a “process” before I am offered the job. This gave me a sense that the environment here is very bureaucratic for my application to have to go through some unnecessary red tape. I thought it to be very suspicious.

    You don’t really get a sense of the company or culture from the interview. You don’t get to see where you would be working, so it was a little misleading. I found the front desk area to be very professional looking and well put together, but when I started working the environment was very casual, uncomfortable, and odd. The actual working environment is completely different from the impression I was given during the interview. I worked in the consumer coliseum.

    I would say that the interview does not give an accurate sense of what it would be like working here.

    Project Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Professional Research Consultants (Omaha, NE) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The mind games start before you're even hired at this company. At the bottom of every single job posting reads "No phone calls please." I was actually informed that this line is there as your first "test". If you actually call them about a job or your resume they see it as a plus. Even though they tell you not to.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Professional Research Consultants.

    Interview

    The interview was straightforward. I was first called in for some assessments. My second interview was with one of the owners and then the department supervisor. My third interview was with the other research analysts. Questions were basic and focused on my previous experiences and future goals. I was given the chance to ask questions. I felt like the process was very transparent.

    Relationship Management Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Professional Research Consultants.

    Interview

    First step is completing their series of assessment tests including math tests (that I have had to do since high school), typing test etc. Its very apparent that your qualifications aren't even considered. I was told the second interview is based upon the results of the assessment. I totally agree on the posts listed above.

    Interview Questions

    • none--its apparent they spent thousands of dollars on this assessment curriculum--however I don't see the relevancy in answering the question "when car A leaves at this time going at this speed and Car B is leaving at this time and going at this speed then at which time will they meet? I can attest that as Relationship Mgmt professional I have never had to worry about story problems that haven't been used since my days in high school. Advice--if they call you to do the assessment then just advise you would be more than happy to AFTER you have the interview :)   Answer Question
