    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at PCM.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview was easy and straight forward. They give out the job detail, scope of responsibilities and benefits. Its the subsequent phone interviews thats a bit hard as they pitch with 2 managers from across the states. And you can barely hear them probably because of their telecom facility so you really have to pay close attention.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult question is how you intend to go about a case on hand and the question is rather vogue so you have to try and read between the lines.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PCM.

    Interview Details

    PCM seemed like one of your typical corporate settings. Upon arrival, you check in with the receptionist and you will be given a sticker badge. The interview process was conducted by the hiring manager. It was informal but was very informative. It provides you a great feel for the company culture and what the job entails.

    I was refereed by another employee, the hiring manager knew them and me, their is a lot of nepotism in PCM. I went in for an interview, and had to wait a month before I heard back from them with a job offer, They would negotiate a better salary, it was a bait and switch, they promise you better pay in a year and it never happens.

    I Just Started As An Account Executive This Month and This IS My Interview Story Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PCM in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for an AE position from linkedin. I received an email a couple days later from an internal recruiter at PCM After 2 days of playing phone tag, we finally had a 30 minute "impromptu" interview. I say "impromptu" because the recruiter didn't want to set a time and just wanted to "catch up with me for a few minutes". Well, who has a first interview for a few minutes? Of course when we connected, it was a 30 minute conversation. The recruiter wanted me to attend a 4 hour "career event" at PCM headquarters in El Segundo. It is a bit unusual, but I did enough basic reading up on the company, and I felt it would be worth my time. Besides, you know if they wanted to hire you, they would make it clear by the end of the day. I went to the event and started counting the inconsistencies or errors in information given by the internal recruiter. The first inconsistency was the time needed for the event: not 4, but 6.5 hours! I kept an open mind, but clearly PCM is trying to do too much with too few and not so competent hands. At the end of the event, I felt that a job offer would be likely in the coming days, but I have been wrong before about interview outcomes. Two days later, I did received an offer. They pay WAY BELOW MARKET and it is reflected in the talent pool I have met in the past month. I need a job and it is much easier to get a job when you have one.

    Interview Questions
    • They like career events on site and one of the managers likes to ask you to size up your competition in the room. I didn't play that game and responded all in sales can be winners and it isn't a Zero Sum Game.   View Answer
