    Change Management Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Plex Systems, Inc. in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    contacted within a couple of days of submitting my info. set up a phone interview. phone interviewer asked all behavioral based interview questions---a great strategy and plan; however, because i have 20+ years experience and an unconventional background, we had trouble with the 'exchange and translation' of info. it would have been better for her if i'd been more able to convert my experiences into buttoned-up-tight responses; however, change leadership is not a 'buttoned up tight' discipline in organizations that respect their employees as humans. i asked for feedback (though I knew I wasn't a fit), and never got a response.

    Delivery Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Plex Systems, Inc. in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first interview is conducted over the phone, typically with an in house recruiter. Basic job responsibilities and qualifications are discussed. The second interview is with the Delivery Consultant Manager and one or two senior Delivery Consultants. Expect to answer multiple canned questions off a Q&A sheet, as well as several impromptu questions. Much focus is paid to manufacturing and software experience and accomplishments in previous roles. Expect to give a presentation on a relevant topic, such as "How to implement Costing", or "How to define Project Scope". The presentation is of your choice, but should be serious in nature and geared toward business. Subsequent interviews with the Director of Implementation and VP of Global Services and Support follow. These tend to be more casual interviews.

    Human Resources Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Plex Systems, Inc..

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview went fine, good exchange of information. Invited over to Troy for a follow up/2nd at short notice. Had to take difficult PTO timing off work to go. Prepared well for the interview, was taken to a meeting room that others hadn't booked, then was made to wait for 20-30 minutes for the interviewer to show.
    Interview was general, a little hit and miss. Followed up with recruiter who had competency based questions that seemed an add-on versus value add. Days after the interview, a brand new role was opened up in San Fransisco. "We'll be in touch for sure within a week, expect our call...". Oh right, week 1.... nothing, week 2, nothing,week 3, nothing, week 4... email... Dear xxx, sorry guys, if you want to play in the big league, start acting like big league. Shoddy and disappointing.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn Hills, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn Hills, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Plex Systems, Inc. in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen with HR manager; he actually talked much more about the company than learning about me. First interview with 2 development leads lasted about 90 minutes, including about 45 minutes of whiteboard time answering SQL programming questions (create table, joins, aggregates, etc.). Heard back from HR manager about 3 days later to schedule a second interview that would involve a written, open-ended technical test - no further hints as to the subject matter were given. Studied my butt off focusing on all potential technologies used by the company. Was pleasantly relieved (and a little annoyed since I studied so hard) that the test ended up being 5 fairly simple SQL problems to solve on a laptop. After my test was reviewed I had a nearly 2 hour meeting/conversation with the VP of software and received a verbal offer on the spot.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was supremely difficult, though the SQL performance tuning question on the technical test was the most difficult. The solution involved a self-referential join and improper indexing.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very laid back, no pressure. I really liked the VPs management and negotiation style. Was able to get the salary and vacation I wanted, with no acrimony or haggling.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Plex Systems, Inc. in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed at the new Irvine CA office. The first step was a telephone interview with an HR recruiter, who then requested I fill out a personality profiler. I then had a telephone interview with the PMO manager who is based in Michigan. The HR and PMO manager asked general questions. Long telephone interviews but basically standard. I then went for an in-person at the Irvine office with a Delivery Manager and a Customer Care Consultant. Primary requirement was to present a 10 minute Power Point on a business topic. The office is just being set up although they apparently have hired a few new people who have not started yet. Both managers seemed overwhelmed. The Delivery Manager who is the senior team member (3 years) was not professional and was taking calls etc. during the interview. They asked general questions, but it felt like I was leading the interview process.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Plex Systems, Inc..

    Interview Details

    The process began with a phone interview and then an online survey. I was contacted and asked to come back approximately a week or so later for an on-site interview. The interview was conducted by two people, a manager and a team leader. The interview was very in-depth and began with them asking me to give an overview of the highlights of my resume. I also had to be prepared to present a ten minute training session using PowerPoint. Their questions were very detailed and they asked many follow-up questions. It was a good interview. I really liked the company a lot.

    Interview Questions
