Program Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Pew Charitable Trusts in December 2008.

Interview Details

The recruiter that worked with me did not know much about the substance of the work that I would be doing (research), making it very difficult for me to make the case for my qualifications. She treated me with skepticism, emphasizing that people with my skill sets are easy to come by, and I should consider myself lucky to be considered for a position. I eventually took the job in spite of my experience with HR. After I started work, I found out that most of my colleagues felt the same way. Later still, when I served as hiring manager for many positions within my group, I found that HR was an obstacle to the recruitment process.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time in your current or previous position that you played a role on a project in which you thought you really excelled, either because it made great use of your strengths or because you were especially proud of your contributions.   Answer Question
  • What is the culture like in your current position? What do you like most about it? Least about it?   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
Pew does not negotiate. For each position, they have calculated salary "bands" that define the upper and lower limits for new hires. Years of experience - but not education - and most recently salary are factored into the offer.
