Engineering Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Palo Alto, CA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Varian Medical Systems in February 2011.

Interview Details

I submitted my resume through a friend. He gave it to the HR rep for Engineering who put it directly in the hiring manager's hands. One phone interview with the hiring manager and then a 1/2 day on site interview. I met with 6 people, the hiring manager, 2 functional managers, 1 fellow project manager, director of quality and the HR Rep.

Most interviewers were pretty easy and straightforward - actually most were not very prepared with questions or really understanding my resume. The director of quality was the opposite - she was very intense and had a list of questions which she rapid fired at me.

Interview Questions
  • The hardest part of the interview was the rapid fire question session with the Dir of Quality. She had a list and just jumped from one thing to the next - it was an intense experience.   Answer Question
