SharePoint Migration Analyst Interview

SharePoint Migration Analyst
Plymouth Meeting, PA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Paragon Solutions in December 2011.

Interview Details – Initial communication via email. Once the email request is completed I was contacted by a representative. This organization begins preparing early for projects. Interview and selection process can take up to 2 months. A week before the project begins the team is selected. Notification is by phone and a follow-up email that details the next step processes such as: 1) complete employment onboarding packet and 2) report for drug screening test.

Sales Director Interview

Sales Director
Cranford, NJ

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Paragon Solutions in May 2010.

Interview Details – Interview process was very straight forward from initial contact to the end of the process. Initial interview was set up by agency for a face to face over a two hour period. The company then offered to have me come back and talk with others in similar roles to the one I was interested in. Once I was comfortable with questions being answered, I met with senior management one more time.

Business Architect Interview

Business Architect

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Paragon Solutions in March 2011.

Interview Details – Contacted by the recruiter, who was interested in my background. Had a phone screen with the individual who would be my direct supervisor, then three separate interviews with him (in-person), his manager(in-person), and a peer-level individual (via conference call).

They appeared to be seeking someone with a greater experience level than I had, which was a little irritating, as I had been extremely forthcoming with both the recruiter and hiring manager about my strengths and the areas where I lacked some of what they sought. I can't fault them for not selecting me, I just wish the recruiter hadn't positioned the role as pretty much mine.

Interview Question – How would you measure the amount of water in a river?   View Answer
