Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Jacksonville, FL) in August 2016.

Interview

Interviewing with Mayo expect your normal Behavioral Interview process. You must have clear examples and showcase your star power. I applied online and had my first phone interview with the department heads. I was then invited to the campus for an interview.

What I found unique was allowing me to speak with someone in the department that was not a part of the hiring panel, but I know would give their feedback of our interaction. This person allowed me to ask questions you may not necessarily get to ask the actual hiring panel.

Speaking of the panel interview, I had a video conference and local panelist. The in-person interview required a 10-minute presentation and an executive writing sample. You must submit them prior to the interview.

The interviewers both locally and via video conference made me feel comfortable and it was very clear they knew exactly what they were looking for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) in January 2012.

    Interview

    An outsider getting hired as a Project Manager at Mayo clinic is as hard as it can get I guess. Mayo is a conservative organization and they don't take chance bringing in external PM's. If you are selected for an interview after a long wait, the interview process is panel based. Questions are scenario based and you need to be prepared to provide an answer in STAR approach. A straight yes/no is no good. You have to explain the situation, task, action and results in sequence. Sometime's its quite tough to make up the answer in the format they are expecting. Moreover salary structure for PM's are not per industry standard

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the scenario based questions, I thought was not relevant to the position. My advise is to think of many situations/scenarios that you have been and come up with appropriate answer. Also, talking to a colleague or a friend to understand their experience will also help   Answer Question
