    PMO Lead Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Starwood Hotels & Resorts (Stamford, CT).

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a person with less than 4 years experience who misinterpreted my answers, or confused me with someone else. By his own admission he wasn't qualified to conduct the interview due to lack of relevant experience as compared to my 15 + years. I am assuming my rejection was a mistake bought on by lack of experience or poor judgement. As a result, this particular PMO (Project Management Office) is off my list until things change there. I can't prove it, but Ageism might be an issue as well.

    Interview Questions

    • Although he was somewhat unfocused in his approach, all of the questions were easily answered.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Starwood Hotels & Resorts in March 2014.

    Interview

    Completed the online application prior to the company coming to my university's career fair. Due to inclement weather, our on-campus interview turned into a phone interview. The recruiter I spoke to asked about my preferences for location and departments and then proceeded to ask behavioral questions. Got to the second round of questions which were available through an online service, was given up to 3 chances to re-record.

    Interview Questions

    • What was a conflict that you had with a co-worker and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was not for the position above but for a direct hire. Due to unforseen circumstances, I could not accept the position at that time.
