    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kirkland, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Prime 8 Consulting (Kirkland, WA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Prime 8 seems like a wonderful company to work for, if only you can get them to respond. It took over four months, 8 emails, and pings from a client to get someone to respond back to me. After an initial one hour phone discussion with a recruiter, the next step was to measure fit with one of the other executives. This went well, and I provided some work samples on request. After this, I came in for yet another interview for a position they were staffing for--it's been about two weeks since that, with no updates. I followed up via email with the exec who I supplied the requested work samples to, and received the canned answer of "we're always looking for you but recommend everyone have 3-5 agencies they are working with". I was merely checking to ensure the info I provided fit their needs, not asking on job status.
    I'm disappointed in Prime 8 only because I've spent a good 10+ hours working through their process and providing them information they requested, only to get a vague "don't call us, we'll call you" response. Obviously they believe in fit and long term culture for their hires--I wish they had the resources to be just a little more on top of their hiring prospects.

    Senior Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Prime 8 Consulting (Kirkland, WA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I reached out to Prime8 and was immediately contacted for an interview. The interview process was great - conducted at Prime8's beautiful Carillon Point (Kirkland) offices, meeting with two Prime8 executives, combination of 'company fit' and client oriented questions, both Prime8 execs were prepared to answer my questions re Prime8, where the firm is headed, clients, growth opportunities, etc. All-all, a great interview process.

    Prime8 followed up same-day as interviews with a 'thank-you for coming in' message. Nice touch!

    I was offered a role, actually multiple roles, within one week of making initial contact with Prime8.

    Onboarding was thorough and easy. The Prime8 HR/Ops team made onboarding easy - detailed information re medical/dental, 401k, FSA, required forms, email signatures, etc. was well communicated and the team walked me through the forms making the onboarding process painless.

    Great work Prime8!

    Marketing Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kirkland, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Prime 8 Consulting (Kirkland, WA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening was very friendly and informative and the interviewer was very interested in my passions and interests and looking for a good fit both from experience and company culture. Follow up and setting up on in person interviews was very professional. In person interviews were challenging, but great! I met the Sales Director and the CEO. I was given a real life example to solve, spend 10 minutes by myself to think about how I would approach the issue, then I presented back to the CEO. He actively listened, provided guidance and input and very constructive feedback which I appreciated. The experience end to end was great and convinced me that I want to be a part of this company. The culture for me is a big plus as well with the focus on community and the Prime 8 women program.

    Interview Questions

    • Real life problem that a client had given them that i was asked how I would approach. It was a great way for me to showcase my experience and a great way for Prime 8 to get an understanding of who I am and my skills.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    We were aligned, so I was very happy.
