Project Manager Interview

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ariba.

Interview

Was contacted by a recruiter after submitting my resume online. They contacted very quickly and did a pre-assessment. After that call interviews with team members were scheduled. They scheduled 4 or 5 meetings with potential colleagues. After this first round there was dialog among the team then I was passed on round 2 with the team managers. After I interviewed with the team managers there was more deliberation for a week or two before I was called back. During this time I maintained good contact with the recruiter - communicating constantly.

Negotiation

They asked early on what I was looking for. We were on the same page from the beginning so the offer was not one I needed to counter.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ariba (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted right away by the recruiter, who was very professional and up front the whole way through the process. I had the typical HR phone screen, then the phone interview with the hiring manager, then a panel of interviews a couple of weeks later with various peers that took half a day. The process was very thorough, but was not very considerate of someone who has a full-time job while interviewing. I had to make arrangements to be away from my job 3 separate times during the process.

    I interviewed with people in Atlanta and Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh people did not impress me. They all appeared to be in their mid-30s and had all worked there since the company was a start-up, and as a result, they did not come across as having any real world experience. They gave the impression of flying by the seat of their pants without really knowing what they were supposed to be doing. One person did not turn the lights on in her office while she was interviewing me! Very unprofessional. They need some senior people to come in and mentor them.

    Because of the vibe I got, I was having serious doubts about continuing on with the process. I didn't feel like I was a great fit for the position anyway. When HR called to tell me I did not get the job, I can't say I was terribly disappointed.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ariba (Atlanta, GA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Great interviews with great people. Most of the challenge stemmed from my lack of experience with procurement.

    I was luke warm on the company at the beginning of the process. They did a great job selling themselves.
