    Project Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Japan Tobacco International in October 2015.

    Interview

    Head if IT for EMEA was Italian with poor English and gargantuan ego, more concerned with their new designer building than the scope of the project or the timeframe. Request to meet and talk to the existing team was initially rejected, later approved. Feedback from insiders was neutral quoting long hours and weekends which are never compensated but "added to your brownie points".

    Interview Questions

    • Do you think you can achieve X (without specifying the scope)   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Company IT is managed by aging incompetent people whose only interest is to maintain the status quo. Offer was below market, adding insult to injury...
