    Interview

    Fairly easy interview. I was probably overqualified for this position, so it gave me more negotiation room. I just talked about past projects and teams.

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at EMC (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty grueling. I interviewed with 7 managers in one day. The questions were pretty straightforward, nothing too difficult. This was the first Project Manager role for this group.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiations were pretty easy, I just didn't realize I had negotiated myself into the top pay of the role I was accepting. I received less than 1% raise over the next two years. I would never have accepted the role if I'd known that going in.
