    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CN (Chicago, IL (US)) in September-2011.

    Interview

    Was good face-to-face interview, not tough...but that depends on interview of course. Was screen first by recruiting firm over a month, then had one phone interview, then face-to-face interview. Once negotiated salary took over month to go through security and drug checks/tests. I think the interview process varies greatly in this corporation.

    Negotiation

    Asked for more and it was a challenge to even get 2.5% increase. That said taking the job was a big pay increase.
