Program Manager Interview

Program Manager
Hunt Valley, MD

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Broadcom in September 2010.

Interview Details – This firm recruits using both contractors and regular full time employees. I interviewed as a contractor. I was told that I had an excellent resume but then the 1:1 interview took less than 20 minutes. The interviewer seemed unfocused and distracted. This initial interview also did not bring in the actual account managers and project managers for the interview. It almost seemed like the position was filled after they scheduled the interview but didn't bother to cancel with me. Overall, it felt like a waste of time.

Difficult Interview

Program Manager Interview

Program Manager
San Jose, CA

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Broadcom in February 2007.

Interview Details – Pretty straight forward - IF you are clear on everything you put on your resume. They grill you on every single thing thats on your resume. Other then that there were a lot of scenario type questions - how would you handle a customer that asks for something engn cannot deliver ?

Interview Question – describe how you would handle mktg when they make commitments to customers that engn cannot keep?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Broadcom is pretty bad about low balling on salary - they think the rsus and options should cover it. but stick to your point and make sure you get the base pay you deserve. Be polite but the first offer is by no means final.
