Senior Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at CA Technologies.

Interview Details

First contact was from a recruiter to do an initial phone screen. After that a 3-4 hour interview was held on-site with various people from the organization including the person who had previously held the job, which I appreciated because one of my favorite questions to ask is "who had this before and where are they?" After that it was a pretty quick turnaround to the final interview, which was with the direct hiring manager, who was remote, so it was done via video conference. The longest part of the hiring process was the ridiculously involved reference and background check. I think it took close to a month.

Interview Questions
  • I don't recall there being any difficult or unexpected questions. Pretty standard.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
I was able to negotiate the base salary because the manager knew I had a bonus at my previous company and my position did not qualify for one here. Also I did not qualify for a raise the next year since I had been there < 12 months. I was told there was no negotiation of vacation time, but in hindsight I wish I had tried harder.

    • Why CA Technologies? and what is your 2, 5, 10 year plan?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very little room left for negotiation. The company follows low 25th percentile for compensation based on market data. Do not expect to receive any base salary close to what the market offers. UNLESS you are going for levels VP and above, these levels are very lucrative and no expenses are spared.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at CA Technologies in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Many phone interviews, and in person interviews. Since most of the company sits at home offices globally it took some time for the interiview process to unfold. Very positive and engaging senior management which made the interview process a delight.
