    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Brainshark (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    3-steps:
    1) Telephone Interview
    2) Product Demonstration
    3) Meetings with supervisor and peers

    I have the impression it is more about your personality than anything else. Interview process is not standardized and varies depending on the department and hiring manager.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Brainshark (Waltham, MA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively smooth. The first two touches came from HR and then the hiring manager via email/phone. The onsite interview followed shortly after that (about 1 week later) with the hiring manager and two members of the current PM team. There was no second interview however it did take some time to hear back regarding the job offer (about 3 weeks)

    Interview Questions

    • At the end of the interview I was asked to create a Brainshark highlighting either previous experience or a how-to on any subject I wanted (as the role involved training clients).   1 Answer

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brainshark (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    Spoke with the director (who is super nice). Was then told to make a short presentation using their free software and come back in a few days to present it to the team of my would-be co-workers. I did so, and then talked separately with several team members including senior PMs as well as management.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I gave them a range and they exceeded it somewhat.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brainshark (Waltham, MA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Group interview. They do a light version of this now. I interviewed with the entire team at once, and then with individual senior & mgmt members. Everyone was very nice, but the process was intense , long, and nerve-wracking.

    Contractor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Brainshark.

    Interview

    Phone interview, nothing in-person. Very informal and the interviewer didn't really seem to care who I was, she was just looking for a body to warm a chair that knew how to use a computer.

    National Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brainshark (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    Very odd. A quick interview, if you wish to call it that, with three people, two of whom are now gone. A sit down with the SVP of Sales who wanted to see if I could add three percentages to get 100%. Not really many questions of me, so much as them selling me on the company. Usually, they want to know about your toughest challenge, etc., but none of that here. I was hired within a few days of speaking with them. You have to take an assessment test, which was the easiest thing in the world. You can see the answers that they're looking for, so go along for the ride.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult or unexpected questions, although I did get interrupted many times by employees coming to speak with the hiring manager. I was there to speak with him, not listen to his employees.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. You take it or leave it.
