Technical Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ooyala (Mountain View, CA) in October 2012.

Interview

First a couple of phone screens. Be sure you know and use Agile, Srum, XP, Kanban and other project management terms properly and can describe your actual role in implementing or enhancing Agile practices in your recent work.

Interview Questions

  • Believe it or not, they asked me to list the three books I had read most recently and then asked why I chose them and what I'd learned (or enjoyed) about them.   1 Answer

    Technical Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ooyala (London, England (UK)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Initial qualifying phone call was then followed by an onsite interview with one PM, 2 SAs, a TAM and a representative from sales. All were more focused upon how I would add future value rather and only required past experience to help qualify and validate that. Highly experienced in their field and also in the wider industry made for an interview that clearly required an 'I don't know' rather then any bluffing.
    This was followed by two skype-based interviews (US headquarters) and finally another face-to-face interview with my future boss. This was completed in the pub!

    Interview Questions

    • Qualifying the transition from long-term internal projects to shorter-term projects with external clients.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer was a fair one and included discussions around current packages and other opportunities in the market.

    Technical Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ooyala in July 2012.

    Interview

    A phone screen via Skype with the human resources person, which was scratchy and difficult to understand, lasted only 20 minutes. At the end, to my delight, I was advised my interview was successful and I would progress to the next phone screen. I was told that the details would be sent to me in the next couple of days. I received nothing. Weeks later, I received a proforma rejection email without any acknowledgement about their error... most unprofessional. Methinks the human resources person jumped the gun in the interview by confirming my success without checking with others. Most unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. They just wanted an overview of my career to date, which in my view was articulated very succinctly in my resume, so I merely paraphrased.   Answer Question
