    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sterling, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sterling, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at REI Systems in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Sent resume through friend and current employee who shared it with HR and hiring managers.

    REI recruiter contacted me quickly, conducted a phone screen, and scheduled a phone interview with a senior leader.

    HR recruiter contacted me immediately after the phone interview and scheduled several meetings with executive leaders in the firm. More than one business unit needed senior-level program managers.

    My first round of interviews last approximately 4 hours, but it was well worth the invested time. I met with executive leaders of several business units, and their some members of their senior management.

    HR contacted me and said that the people who interviewed me liked me and my experience, and were considering where I would be the best fit. They brought me back to explore this with me, and have me interview with corporate executives.

    During both rounds of interviews, the questions were open-ended and exploratory -- to determine what kind of leader I would be, my philosophy about staff development and client engagement, and so on. Questions were also specific and targeted -- to examine my knowledge and experience of management practices, budgets, proposals, and so on. I was also given plenty of time to ask questions.

    HR contacted me after the second round of interviews, and asked me to come back to have lunch with one business unit leader. If this meeting went well, it would result in an offer. We had lunch, talked more in depth about a role the executive envisioned for me, and I agreed to accept the offer.

    HR followed up quickly with a written letter, and package of benefits materials.

    The process took about three weeks from first interviews to offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at REI Systems in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    6-8 ROUNDS OF INTERVIEW WITH ALL LEVELS OF PEOPLE AFTER HR SCHEDULED IT. They are very fond of calling candidates after 8:00 pm because they seem to be very busy during the day. Do not have ample time to speak to a prospective candidate. They are also very fond of checking their emails during interviews and responding to phone calls.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at REI Systems in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is very scattershot. If you've got reasonable communications skills and have used PHP in the last 5 years, you probably have a shot.
