    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Morrisville, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morrisville, NC
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Lenovo in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was referred by a friend who had been with the company for some years. The referral lead to an initial phone interview with the recruiter at CTG to discuss possible openings. I had an Inside Sales interview with another CTG recruiter onsite, which was very brief. When the recruiter called to let me know whey were moving forward with other candidates, she asked if I would be interested in other openings - specifically the Project Manager role. I agreed, and soon thereafter, received a confirmation email to meet with the Manager and team. The interview was lengthy, meeting with the Manager of the division, then two other PMs, then the rest of the team. They asked general questions, nothing our of the ordinary.

    Interview Questions
    • As someone who hasn't worked in the technology field before, what should we hire you? Explain a difficult project assigned to you from beginning to end. And the like.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Because it was considered an entry-level position through a CTG contract, there really was not room for negotiation. I was not working when I received the offer, so I gladly accepted. They offer two salary options with benefits (BCBS v. Tranamerica) which are relatively low salaries; however, there is so much opportunity for growth within the company - and both include vacation/time off, 401k, etc.

    I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at Lenovo.

    Interview Details

    Literally ----- THE EASIEST JOB INTERVIEW EVER. It was 15 minutes long. If you have a pulse and can look someone in the eyes you can get the job.

    Heads up though... the interviewers are very unfriendly and give you NO insight in to how you did. You will typically hear back the same day.
