    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at EMC.

    Interview Details

    Very long (over 5 months), poorly coordinated interview process by both Recruiting team and interviewing team. No follow up from Recruiting team unless asked. I did not feel the company treated candidates with much respect. The system used for applications submissions is hard to navigate and outdated. Interviews are typical 30-45 min conversations.

    Senior Technical Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at EMC in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and given a description about the opportunity and an interview was scheduled. That interview never happened and I never received feedback.

    4 months later, the same recruiter contacted me asking if I was still interested in the positions. Luckily, I was in search of a new job. I expressed my interest and was set up for an interview the following week. I was double booked by the recruiter between one hiring manager and another PM. The recruiter rescheduled the call with the PM, that never happened. I was reached two weeks later with a followup interview and time with another PM.

    First PM interview (phone): Lots of questions around Processes and 'what if scenarios'

    (time gap - 2 weeks)

    Second PM interview (phone): Lots of questions around my past experiences and how I worked through tough situations. The interviewer also talked more about the difficulties of the position, and how people tend to move to other roles. The experience was negative, and the person didn't sound like they even wanted to be there anymore. More focus was placed on working a set schedule, being in the office on time, etc. I felt like I was in a disciplinary review and I don't even work for the company!

    (time gap 2 more weeks and only after I followed up requesting next steps, feedback or any kind of input)

    Third Interview (phone): Interviewed by another PM. Lots of questions about project management as a discipline. Lots of PMP exam questions were asked, surprisingly. Lots of scenario based questions.

    After this interview, I was told that I would finally be scheduled to talk to the hiring manager, whom the recruiter said was swamped, and too busy to interview with for the past 4 months. At this point, I asked myself, why are they wasting effort and my time, on this interview, is there an actual need to fill the position? Why do I have to follow up and hound a recruiter in order to get feedback or next steps?

    Between the 3rd and last interview, there was a 3 week gap and I had moved on with interests elsewhere. When the recruiter reached out, I was baffled! I couldn't understand how he could be unresponsive to my requests for followup and feedback, then pop out of the blue asking if I was still interested.

    I never heard back from the recruiter... same thing that happened 4 months ago!

    Very disappointed in how it all played out and wonder if the hiring manager even knows the time wasted and the process failure in recruitment.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at EMC in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter contacted me, set up interview. Wanted me to ask a lot of questions rather than me answer questions. Only question I was asked was, do you understand the GSAP program. Was a little odd, but then I was just grilled for questions to ask about their company. Not sure if they were looking for something specific or what.
