Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cummins.

Interview Details

I was referred to a position and had an initial, one hour in-person interview. After that, I was invited to the campus and spent a half day with more of the team. Each interview was pretty standard, and they did a good job of mixing up the behavioral and job-specific questions. All of the people involved in the process were very nice and professional.

I got an offer one month after starting the process.

    Had about 9 one-on-one interviews. The lunch interview was with the Hiring Manager. All were professional management questions. None in any of the interviews were related to PM methodology or any technology.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cummins in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Seemed to be a scripted process with questions overlapping from from the various participants.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Difficult to negotiable. The salary seemed to have already been fixed. In retrospect, the recruiter had indicated that he did not want to waste my time if I my requirements were outside of a certain dollar range. I incorrectly assumed a bit of flexibility in that statement .

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cummins in July 2011.

    Interview consisted of an initial phone interview with the hiring manager. This was followed up with an in person interview with the hiring managers supervisor, because hiring manager was out of the country.

All interviews were professional and highly detailed regarding the specific characteristics required for the job I interviewed for.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cummins in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an agency who set up the call with Cummins. The agency did no vetting other than reading my resume. They set up a call with Cummins, and then called me one other time to confirm the date and time. Other than that I didn't hear from them again until the process was over.

    The process was composed of a single conference call with a handful of participants who asked me various questions about the kinds of projects I've handled and what my management style was like. It was a very "normal" interview with little deviation from the kinds of questions you encounter in every other interview.

    I didn't hear anything back again for 3 months; then I was contacted and offered the position.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you handle projects where the team is spread across different timezones and countries?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation was really offered after we established the billing rate and benefits package when the agency called the first time. Do your homework on the asking rate. It is quite often published on the job sites in the descriptions and I found it to be a but higher than the one I agreed to.
