    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Terra Firma Business Consulting (Melbourne) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Had an initial interview with one of the directors (he was lovely) was supposed to have written test immediately but took a while for HR to organise, then had a second interview with the practice lead for Project Management ,was supposed to have a 3rd interview again with the same Director, which I pointed to the HR person.

    Feedback - This was one if the worst interview processes that I have ever dealt with.The HR person was unprofessional and incompetent, took forever respond, the whole process took between 6-8 weeks, by this time I had another offer from a Melbourne consultancy , which I made the 2nd interviewer aware of. When I mentioned this to the HR person, she blew up on the phone to me, behaved unprofessionally , accused me of being dishonest and said she didn’t want to proceed , which after her poor behavior made me realize I didn’t want to proceed with them either if this was their level of professionalism. On hindsight, I think this was a good decision, I love where I currently work and it’s not a body shop.

    Advice: Treat people with respect, respect their time , if a candidate tells you that your company is their preferred one they want to work in ( which genuinely was the case with me) and they are willing to reject an offer from another consultancy , don’t get on the moral high ground and accuse them of impropriety, it makes you look immature and sophomoric as an organization and very, very unprofessional.

    Also, hire better people in HR recruitment team.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Terra Firma Business Consulting in July 2016.

    Interview

    3 different interviews and an assessment test. Questions that they ask on last 2 interviews are similar. Don't know why they wanted to have 3 separate ones.

    As first interview aimed towards assessing your technical approach with the client, the other 2 interviews were more finding out if you're the right person to a consultancy firm
