    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rescue | The Behavior Change Agency (San Diego, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I first had a 15 minute qualifying interview from their HR department. The questions were standard to review my experience. Then they scheduled a 1 hour in person interview. The office is modern and quiet. I met with two managers. One was friendly and the other gave off a vibe that I was wasting his time. Since Rescue works on government contracts they followed a strict interview process. They explain this to you at the beginning of the interview. There is a series of 12-15 interview questions that focus on your project management methodology knowledge. One of the managers asked a few follow up questions, but there was minimal back and forth conversation throughout the interview. After the interview I was told the next step would be a 2 hour task oriented interview where they test my skills to "make sure I can do more that talk the talk." Unfortunately, I didn't pass the in person interview and was not invited back.

    My impression of Rescue and the position is that they are looking for someone with a traditional background in project management. It's understandable since they work with government contracts, they feel more corporate than other marketing firms.
