Project Manager - Contractor Interview

Anonymous Employee
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Wells Fargo in January 2009.

Interview Details – One 90 minute panel interview with two VP's, the application manager and a member of the team I would be working with. We reviewed my resume and I provided a summary of my professional experiences that were relevant for the position I was interviewing for. Most of the questions they asked were standard behavioral / situational as they were hiring me for a contractor project manager position to assist with an integration effort to enhance an internal application. Questions I was asked: How do you deal with conflict, have you been on a project where there were challenging personalities to contend with and what did you do to ensure project implementation, etc.

Interview Question – There weren't any challenging or unexpected questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Contract with pre-negotiated hourly rate
