Senior Program Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bellevue, WA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months - interviewed at Intel Corporation in May 2011.

Interview Details

6 - 1 hr interviews that covered off Project Management skills, Program Management and Reporting, Stakeholder relations, C++/C coding skills, People Management... the full gamut of what is expected out of a Senior Technical person. There was an onus on cultural fit as well - the interviewers were all very senior engineers with decades of experience in the industry and as a result the interviews were challenging but a very rewarding interaction informative for both sides.

Interview Questions
  • How would I implement a Agile/Scrum type process in an environment where change is not just reality, but expected?   View Answer
Negotiation Details
not bad - it was in a challenging employment environment, so the offer was low compared to Seattle standards. But the benefits, bonus program and signing terms made up for it - I asked to put the base salary at the same level as my last FTE role and everyone accepted.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Very comprehensive interview processes utilizing behavioral interviewing techniques and multiple interviewers. Behavioral interviews are generally tailored to the specific skill set sought (i.e. leadership experience, technical experience, etc.) If hire is external on-boarding averages 4 weeks so be patient.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult question: "When will we regret hiring you?"   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Once the interviews had completed it was clear my skill set was not a good fit for what they were looking for - potential set-up for failure.
