    Electric Condition Management (ECM) Project Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Helsinki, Southern Finland (Finland)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fortum (Helsinki, Southern Finland (Finland)) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Fortum organized a career fair/tour advertising their trainee program. I applied online and later received an invitation to a phone interview with a hiring agency representative. The phone interview consisted of your typical interview (experience, good characteristics, bad characteristics, hobbies etc.) question and also had a short discussion in English (otherwise the language used was Finnish). The phone interview lasted around 30 minutes. Few days later I was invited to a 1:1 interview with a company representative. The same typical questions that also came up in the phone interview. Also had a small conversation in Swedish.

    The interview process was pleasant in itself but the actual job description did not match the one they advertised (this came up in the 1:1 interview). It was blue-collar technical position with very little to do with project management. Should you consider a Fortum trainee program, please make sure that the advertised description and the actual description match!
