    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rockville, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Powertek (Rockville, MD) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I enjoyed the conversational style of the interview process. I felt that there was a genuine interest in ensuring that my background and experience were fully understood to ensure that I would be a good fit technically as well as that there be a strong cultural fit with the company. After having completed the phone screen with the recruiter, I was scheduled, 2 days later, with the Founder of the firm, Nancy Scott. This interview was business focused but at the same time friendly and broad reaching. At each stage of their process, I was kept in the loop and knew what to expect form the next steps.

    Recruiter responded to me about 10 minutes after I applied. I could not believe how quick response was! Initial screening with Recruiter, he was very nice and asked basic questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Something I've rarely been asked in interviews - "describe your steps for basic troubleshooting." Usually I'm asked what would be the first thing I did to troubleshoot, which doesn't really tell you much. Troubleshooting can take any number of courses, depending on the type of issue and the technical savvy of the client. It impressed me that the technical lead wanted me to describe my process.   Answer Question
