    Senior Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Phunware (Austin, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process began with an initial phone screen/interview, followed (about a week and a half later) by an on-site interview that lasted approximately 2 1/2 hours. I met with four interviewers separately for 30-40 minutes each. They were all very professional, friendly, conversational, and asked excellent questions. Additionally, they kept me very informed after the interview regarding at what point of the process they were in. Incredibly considerate!

    Managing Editor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Phunware (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    LinkedIn message from recruiter, phone call with recruiter, phone call with marketing manager, in-person interviews with four members of the marketing team. After the in-person interviews were completed, I was told by the recruiter that they'd be moving forward with an offer. I was then called two other times and told that the offer had been signed by the marketing manager and the CRO, and that they were just waiting for the CEO to sign the offer. The delay was explained by the CEO's absence from the office on account of having a baby. Since it was implied that this final signature was a foregone conclusion, I notified my supervisor and team members that I would be leaving my job. Two weeks later, the recruiter called to tell me that the offer had been terminated. Apparently a recently hired marketing director believed the position wasn't a good use of company funds.

    Obviously this was a massive lapse in communication on their part, and I believe it may have cost me a promotion at my current job. I was lucky to have not gotten fired. Although everyone I spoke with at Phunware was very friendly and prompt in replying to emails and keeping me in the loop, the way the process ended was brutal and likely damaged my career in the short term.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Phunware (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    Pretty dishonest. Everything was said as excelent to the end, they ended up emailing plain disapproval though. I'm personally advocate of straight forward speech, and constructive critism. It tasted to me as trying to fool people.
    I have very good feelings from other interviews in my career when I did not get the job, but they became perfect guidelines from feedback.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Phunware (Miami, FL) in March 2014.

    They call you, schedule the first interview, then if they like you, they will schedule a second interview. Then they will tell you your start date. And they will not pay you for the first 2 weeks. Be prepared not to get paid until after 1 month. Because they pay every 2 weeks.
