    PMO Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at UNC Chapel Hill (Chapel Hill, NC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    One telephonic round with CIO and a series of on-site interview.(1 presentation and 4 back to back interviews). Absolutely nothing technical. No questions to challenge your ability to lead PMO. The interviewers were clueless about position. Doesn't matter how innovative you are, how technical you are, regardless of your strategies, regardless your leadership skills, you may not be a good candidate for this position or any other position in IT. You just have to know how to navigate in the State System, be politic enough to know interviewers.

    Library Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Hiring process took one hour. I had a feeling the committee already had an applicant in mind and I was there to meet quota. The interview is the standard panel Q&A with a few questions related to the position. I was interviewed by three men. The committee has to write down every response. In one part of the interview, on of the committee members rolled is eyes at me while I gave a response. Completely unprofessional. In the later half of the interview, another member laughed at one of my questions. I was appauled. I was thankful for the gentleman that was professional. The actions of the committee turned me off and I was no longer interested.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UNC Chapel Hill.

    Interview

    Overly-complicated, long day (over 8 hours total) for what was essentially an executive assistant position. (Am comparing this with other, higher position for which I have applied). Met with dean and assistant dean; also had to interview with four different panels. Lunch w/ dean and assistant dean. A writing exam as part of the interview. (Little surprised at that because they mentioned several times that they had only selected the 4 candidates out of 200+ because of our well-written, organized, and thorough cover letters, as well as the articles I had written.)

    Interview Questions

    • Why did you apply for this position?
      How do you prioritize your tasks?
      How do you keep up with multiple, conflicting deadlines?
      What was your biggest disappointment?
      Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
      How would your current supervisor describe you?
      How do you handle conflict or confrontation? Provide an example.
      What are your strengths and weaknesses?

    Interview

    No phone interview (unusual for most jobs here). In person interview with the three person hiring committee. Second interview was with a selection of members from the whole IT Department.
