    Senior Proposal Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tetra Tech (Rosslyn, VA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The interviewer kept me waiting for several minutes to start. I interviewed with only one person, a VP who supposedly worked her way up in the firm over the years. I was not impressed. The hiring manager did not communicate well; she asked me several questions twice because she was not getting the answers she wanted. Our conversation was awkward. I was also disappointed that I did not get to discuss the role, position, or company with other employees. I did not get a good feel for company culture, team work, and camaraderie. The interviewer also had limited time to meet with me--only an hour, so I felt rushed, and definitely not relaxed. I typically like to provide context and/or details with my answers, and I was cut off several times. I definitely don't think I had ideal personality and work style compatibility with the hiring manager. In summary, my interview was easy, albeit awkward.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you manage the proposal process; how do you handle issues with missed deadlines, or other issues that arise during the proposal process?   Answer Question

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Tetra Tech in May 2017.

    Interview

    First, there was a general interview, covering my background and interest in the company, and abilities, and that sort of thing. Then they had me come back a few days later to talk to the team lead I'd be working with, more to get a sense of general personality compatibility.

    Program Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied for Program Analyst position in the D.C. area. I immediately received email from one of their recruiters. Several of the questions were questions that if a recruiter had read my resume they could answer. Nevertheless, I answered each question fully and replied back to the recruiter. From there, no further email, no contact, no anything. For a position with such specific expertise required (in a very small industry) I believe its improper to establish communications with an applicant and then completely shut them out.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your Salary Requirement (asked right off the bat with no opportunity to discuss the position, clients, company benefits)

      How does your experience support the position (again, asked right off the bat and implies they did not take the time to read the resume)   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tetra Tech.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview. Was asked over and over why I was switching fields and why I didn't have direct reception experience. If I was wasting their time so much they should not have called me. They did not bother to send a rejection email. I'm sure they interviewed alot of people but manners are manners.
