Program Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Redmond, WA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at MAQ Software in May 2010.

Interview Details – I met with three people, one at a time. The first interviewer was intense but I think he was mostly trying to weed out anyone that wasn't a good fit for the company.
The second interviewer asked questions more about my background and passions, as well as my educational experience.
The third lady that interviewed me was super nice and described the role to me and a little about the company and what it'd take to be successful.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The offer they made me was very fair and comparable to my peers. My advice would be to take the offer and prove your worth, the company will reward your hard work with raises and bonuses.
