    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MBDA (Stevenage, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Interview arranged via recruiter. First up, disappointed that such a large company will not meet nor entertain the idea of cost sharing interview related travel expenses. Especially as process requires two interviews, which do add up (flights, hotel, hire car etc).

    That aside, interview process was well organised and structured - all be it being taken late to the interview (first impressions etc.). I treat interviews as two way: I sell myself, and the company sell themselves.

    Interview lasted approx 2.5hrs during which the interview was more conversational that standard Q&A type approach. I was able to lead the conversation and get to know the 3 interviewers just as much as they were I.

    Second interview was with the technical heads of the project you would be working on. They discuss their project, team etc. and an adult conversation ensues about which project may best suit. Later they then decide which team you will be best placed in.

    Feedback was received in a very timely manner however then comes the dreaded wait on Security Clearance!
