Program Manager Interview

Program Manager

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Trident Microsystems in October 2010.

Interview Details – I got a call from the recruiter, who set up a 30m phone interview with the hiring manager.
The phone interview was mainly about my background and the programs I was involved with - it went well and the hiring manager called me for an onsite interview with 4 people (including herself)
The onsite interview went well for the most part. They asked me about my projects and how I or my company had handled situations (which I presume they were facing). One interviewer asked me specific questions about Project Management - like work breakdown structures, how I'd get uncooperative engineers to provide project details, and Microsoft Project,

I thought they liked me for the most part. But they put me on hold when I checked 2 weeks later - sort of waiting for a better candidate and I didn't hear back from them again
