    Junior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ON Semiconductor.

    Interview

    My interview began with a recruiting company as the position was contract to hire. Although the interview process isn't over, I can say that the company is really digging into my skill level and background; requiring 2 referrals even prior to the second interview, requesting written summaries of how I manage projects, etc.

    The first interview was with the recruiter, the second with the PMO manager. The questions were vague, which forced me to re-question everything asked. The manager asked for a written summary of how I would handle running an applications project, although, I had already explained, in detail, how I had done that in the past. This makes me believe the manager isn't detailed or direct enough which is vital for PMs. (BTW, this request was asked of me by my recruiter PRIOR to my having any conversation with the hiring manager - I declined the initial request until I had a chance to chat with the hiring manager in order to get a better feel for what he wanted.)

    The rate/offer from the recruiter is extremely low in comparison to jobs of equal skill levels. This, however, may have nothing to do with the FTE salary ON offers.

    For this particular position, I would say the level of interviewing is extreme and unwarranted.

    Interview Questions

    • Three vague questions were asked by the manager, which resulted in me asking for something more specific. When specificity was not entirely provided, I answered based on my gut instinct for what he was looking for.

      Question one: How do you work with developers? (in what respect?). Question two: Tell me how you manage stress? (Who's? Mine, team, stakeholders, overall project stress?) Question three: How do you handle difficult people? (Depends on what issue they're having).

      I would have thought more appropriate questions would be: How do you work with a developer to engage them on tasks? Tell me how you manage stakeholder stress? How do you handle a person who constantly pushes back on your requests or won't communicate with you?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ON Semiconductor in April 2018.

    Interview

    A few weeks after submitting my resume, I was contacted by a recruiter by email asking about my availability for a phone screen. I then had a 15 minute phone screen a few days later. The recruiter was very nice, but she asked me an ominous question - she told me to let me know if I receive an offer from another company and provide details about the offer, such as whether it includes the opportunity to work from home. This made it sound like they have issues with recruiting people, so things didn't get off to a good start. About a week later, I had about a half-hour to 45 minute phone interview with the hiring manager. This was filled with those pointless pesky behavioral/situational interview questions, my LEAST favorite style of interview. Considering I've never had a great experience with this interview format, I knew I was toast, even though I always put my best foot forward. The hiring manager seemed nice, but was also very boring and lacked personality. About a week later I received one of those automated "thanks, but no thanks" emails. Thanks, but no thanks, ON - you did me a HUGE favor by rejecting me! Oh yeah, and I DID get an offer from a much better company!
