    IT Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Walnut Creek, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Safeway (Walnut Creek, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    The recruiter was based out of state so correspondence was via email and telephone. The recruiter intermediated the entire process including a screening interview focused on the resume contents. The interview process consisted of 1) a panel of IT peers, 2) a panel of IT Directors and 3) a IT VP 1:1. All face to face but in my case the 2nd interview was via phone due to scheduling challenges.

    Interview Questions

    • The panel interviews were Behavioural based with an intent to more deeply understand first hand how an individual handled specific situations in terms of what was done, thought or said. The interviewers were not experienced with behavioural and so the level of difficulty is rated average.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Because it is a large organisation salary bands are defined. Nevertheless negotiation should be based on industry benchmarks and was intermediated via the recruiter.
