I went on 2 different interviews. The first one was formal and it consisted of a call from a recruiter who basically just wanted to verify my resume, ask 2 behavioral questions, and then explained that a 1:1 was going to be set up. A week later someone from HR called to set up the 1:1 for the following week. I went in and the hiring mgr met me in the HR office and was very formal. He asked a few behavioral questions like:
1 - Name a time where your communication skills were used sucessfully?
2 - How do you deal with conflict with internal and external customers?
3 - What was your greatest frustration in your working career?
4 - Explain a time where you were in charge of a project and how did it turn out
5 - How long would it take for you to contriube to the team?
I was told that I would be contacted either way the following week. No response ever.
I went on a second interview 5 months later (for a different job) and it was quite different. Recruiter called and did the same thing as the first time around. I went in and this time I was interviewed in the hiring mgr office. This is where it was odd. She kept getting phone calls during the interview and she kept looking at her screen for some reason. I was very distracted by this behavior. She asked 2 behavioral questions and the rest of the time she just explained the job duties and what it is they do, etc...more focused on briefing me on the position. At the end I was told I'd be contacted either way by HR or herself in a week to let me know if I go on to the second interview. A week later I did get a call to set up the 2nd interview with the director and hiring mgr. Went in and it was just small talk and more briefing. Again was told I'd be contacted in a week if I made the cut. At this time I haven't heard back.
