    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manassas, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at SWIFT (Manassas, VA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online on company web site for one specific PM Position- email exchange with Technical Recruiter - Phone interview with Technical Recruiter - Technical Recruiter offer to be considered for other PM positions open . I agreed. Technical Recruiter said will talk to the hiring manager and will update - All silent and blank no update at all even after repeated emails.
    The reason I gave negative review is that the company that Toots “Special Benefits” did not have the basic professional courtesy to update and feedback. If the job was advertised and a potential candidate was contacted it is expected to formally inform the candidates about the process. How long it takes for HR team to get information from functional manager and convey to the candidate. If that cannot be done in two weeks I will seriously question about company staff abilities in people skill?

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SWIFT in March 2015.

    Interview

    Basic 1 to 1 phone call no "tell me about a time questions" very casual discussion more than an interview. I appreciated that the HR Director took the time to know me on a more personal basis rather than judge me completely on how I can mold stories to fit the questions they want ansered.

    Security Management Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Culpeper, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at SWIFT (Culpeper, VA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Numerous interviews (4). Starts with phone interview from HR, proceeds to management interview, then back to HR to ensure salary negotiation will work, then back to management for final interview. It took 5 weeks, which I thought was excessive. Lots of waiting in between interviews, but HR is communicative and keeps you in the loop pretty well.

      What value will you bring to the company?
      What is more important to you, benefits or work fit?
