Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

The process took a day - interviewed at Siemens IT Solutions and Services in July 2009.

Interview Details – For a direct hire contract position:
This is with a panel of 4 people and the interview lasted 30 minutes.
They were looking for key knowledge and skill sets. MS Project savvy, SharePoint savvy, PM savvy to manage issues, risk, actions, etc..

It was a very fast process, I believe due to the dire need to get someone onboard as quickly as possible as they are in the midst of a major gloal consolidation and standardization program with all major deliverable due Oct!

I was interviewed on Tuesday, offered the position on Wednesday, and the onboarding process began on Thursday, I recieved my equipment and phone beginning Friday, and officially started Monday.

Interview Question – What experience do you have building large complex cross-functional IT processes?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I tried but they were not going to budge.
Due to the current recession and high unemployment rate, the rate offered is SIGNIFICANTLY lower than the average in the PM industry, with NO Benefits. You have the option to subscribe to benefits for an even much lower rate.

I believe they figured "someone" will take the job.
I only agreed in order to get off of unemployment, but I am actively seeking other opportunities. I am a reasonable and realistic person this but this ridiculous. I would be crazy to continue to work for these peanuts. Seriously.

Also, it has been mandated for everyone to take a week furlog, use all of their PTO before the end of the FISCAL year (October), and Directors and above took a mandatory paycut.

Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer
Beaverton, OR

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Siemens IT Solutions and Services in May 2008.

Interview Details – I was contacted initially by a friend of mine who informed me that there were openings that he thought I should apply for at Siemens, as they were taking on a new contract. I sent him my resume and he forwarded it to the person in charge of hiring for the contract. After a few months I was called in to interview with my future boss and his superior. The interview was very informal and relaxed, although my future boss was very quiet.

Junior Software Engineer Interview

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Siemens IT Solutions and Services in March 2013.

Interview Details – The Hiring process constitutes of three rounds. the first would be a aptitude cum technical test. The aptitude section consists of 25 questions which are easy to solve if you still remember your high school maths. Technical part consists of 25 questions which is mostly constituted with c++. these questions too revolve around the basics of computing. The programs are a bit difficult to solve.

Round 2:
this round constitute of a direct interview with a technical personal. All your knowledge will be tested over here. For me, it started with a question from files streams and other input streams. He didn't even bother to ask about OOPS concept that I have gone prepared. Unfortunately it was a tough nut for me to crack.
