Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Syntel (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2012.

Interview

Very clear process, and swift paced. starts with HR round, followed by Engagement Manager round, then client interview. HR takes care of most of the operational stuff. Salary negotiation is the key, you have to ensure you get what you want before signing the contract or offer letter.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Syntel (Phoenix, AZ) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Interview Process was simple but long. First round is HR screening, followed by line-manager interview, then a client interview and in the end HR round for salary negotiation. I'd advise on negotiating on base salary because unless a top performer the yearly hike is not going to be much

    Interview Questions

    • Past Experience, outlook towards this job, basic stuff, nothing out of ordinary. They are just checking fundamentals, conviction, confidence and communication style   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Syntel in April 2010.

    Interview

    Interview with client and staffing manager. It went very quickly, all over the phone. Technical questions from the client and very little from the Syntel Hiring Manager. Good feedback after the interview and good communication. Initial impression was one of a good, solid organization to work with. The interview to start date was moved to a quick pace.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the most import role of a PM.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was easy and fairly straight forward. Not a lot of wiggle room due to it being a contract position with one of their clients. Margins needed to be maintained.
