Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at SunPower in Jun 2022

Interview

After submitting my application I was contacted by a recruiter within 3 days. I had an initial phone screening followed by a work study to be completed in 24 hours. It included 2 scenarios: 1) Email a customer updating them on project progress 2) How would you manage a certain situation regarding procedures/management and lastly a writing prompt :How does SunPower fit into your career aspirations. You will then get the green light to interview with 3 Project coordinator supervisors. They each introduce themselves and give you the opportunity to introduce yourself. You will then be asked a series of questions from each of them. Mostly more scenarios/situational response and then given the opportunity to ask questions. I dressed up for the interview and was met with managers that didn't resemble managers at all. One (younger male) was wearing a t-shirt, one (younger female) was wearing an oversized sweatshirt and third (older male) was decently dressed in a short sleeve button down. This threw me off immediately and I felt over dressed. I assume because it is mostly remote they don't get dressed up to work at home and apparently not for interviews either. The whole tone of the interview panel seemed like they didn't want to be there and it was very dull. There was no energy to feed off of. No reactions to any responses good or bad. The female had her hand in her sweatshirt and over her mouth the entire interview. After the older male and female asked their questions they were quiet and didn't say another word. I was left to finish the interview with the younger male and he answered all of my questions to interview completion. Overall It felt stagnant, it was just a question and answer interview with no direction and not a conversation about the role or what I could do for the company. My personal observation is three supervisors with no real HR experience or experience in hiring.

Interview Questions
  • Q: Strength/Weakness Q: If you had to complete a project with very little info how would you proceed. Q: If the project manager promised a client that we would pay to get them a new roof but the client later finds out that isn't the case how do you proceed? Q: Tell me a time you had a conflict with a difficult customer how did you resolve it? Q: Why are you applying for this position?

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SunPower in Mar 2022

Interview

I was contacted by a recruiter within a few days of submitting an application, and set up an interview with the hiring manager for the following week. The first interview consisted of a discussion of my background and the role, followed by Q&A on why I may be a good fit. There weren't many behavioral or situational questions. At the conclusion of the interview I was told a second interview would be scheduled with another manager. The second interview was with a senior manager who I would be working closely with. This interview was a bit more casual, and seemed to be focused on determining whether I was a good fit for the team. The hiring manager kept me in the loop over the next couple weeks while a decision was made, and eventually scheduled a call to extend an offer. Overall, I would consider it to be one of the better interview experiences I've had over the years.

Interview Questions
  • Q: Tell me why you are a good fit for the role? Q: Can you describe your Program Management approach for this scope of work?

Very unprofessional business practices. After multiple interviews with the recruiter and hiring manager, I was completely ghosted. A simple email would have sufficed - especially after my attempts to reach out for an update.

I interviewed at SunPower (Phoenix, AZ)

Interview

I had an initial screening with the recruiter and was asked to interview with their general counsel. After that interview, I followed-up with the recruiter via email and phone several times and never received a response back. It would be appreciated if they at least responded to say they were moving on with other candidates. The interview was only 30 minutes with general counsel and I didn't get a chance to do a lot of speaking about my background.
