    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Visionary Integration Professionals (Sacramento, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    3 phone calls. Company has really shifted from employees to 1099 subcontractors. Company requires you to got through a 3rd party company and pay $5 per hour to process your pay. Extensive haggling over hourly rate. HR department was very professional and helpful. After hire, I had to renegotiate contract, as many of the verbally agreed conditions during the interview were not implemented.

    Proposal Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Visionary Integration Professionals (Folsom, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter was great but terminated after 12 years of service and after my first interview with a managing director. Both of these individuals were terrific. After that interviews with two more directors - one asked me what my family situation was because I would be replacing a woman who could not work past 5 because of family obligations. This Proposal Director also asked me about my willingness to work extra hours and he did not seem pleased with my answer that I was willing to work 12 hour days or 60 hour/week when pinched; answer according to him was "until the job was done." I did talk with the former PM who said she got another job because she was afraid of being fired. Guess I dodged a bullet. This firm has little to no chance of winning federal contracts with new clients because it's no longer a small business. There used to be 10 people in the proposal department but reduced to the Director who is hiring from within because they are unwilling to pay in the APMP salary range. Sounds like the company is in trouble.

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Visionary Integration Professionals (Herndon, VA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my application and was contacted within 48 hours. I had one in person interview with two members of their team. The interview was quick and polite. The offer was more of the issue, I received an initial offer and when I tried to negotiate they countered with a lower offer than they initially proposed. I decided not to take the position.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Visionary Integration Professionals.

    Interview

    A recruiter will contact you and give you a high level overview of the opening and salary range. If you are still interested, the recruiter will contact the program manager, who will be your supervisor. After the interview, the Program Manager may or may not ask additional team member to interview candidate to determine whether the candidate will be a good fit. If they wish to proceed, the program manager will bring you onsite to meet the client in order to obtain approval to proceed with a staffing action. You will then be provided an offer to accept decline or counter.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alexandria, VA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Visionary Integration Professionals (Alexandria, VA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    It was lengthy and challenging. Started with a recruiter but I applied online. Once I finished with the recruiter I was passed onto a Sr. Project manager. She immediately told me that I would not be working for her and that her job was to check my experience and provide an evaluation. I think she was fairly impressed as I did two jobs for the FBI and the work I did was fairly exhaustive. It was enough to impress her that she passed me onto another person who did nothing but ask me PMBOK questions. Those were tough as I hadn't really spent time on my PMBOK methodology recently but I guess I did ok enough. I was then passed onto my now boss who was equally tough on questions. He said he had interviewed three people before me and none of them passed the mustard. So, I was very nervous from the start. He told me the last PM quit because of a family issue but not the job. I think I impressed him enough because I'm still here today!

    Interview Questions

    • Situational type questions. How would you do this? How would you handle that? What if a customer asked you to do this? Then the PMBOK type questions. STUDY!!!   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Visionary Integration Professionals in June 2013.

    Interview

    Contacted via phone after putting resume on Dice.com. Preliminary phone call to assess personality, and then a few after to set up another call with developers for an interview. I did not know the specifics of what I would be working on at the time, but I later learned that I would come to work as a subcontractor for Fast Enterprises. The second interview round was with 2 Fast Developers from some specific client's site. They asked questions also to gauge my personality and experience as a employee, developer. 2 questions were were puzzles to gauge my mental process. I had problems answering one of the questions and needed hints. Nevertheless, they seemed to like me and ended the call on a positive note.

    Another thing was that I didn't know where I would end up, even though the posting said Denver, Colorado. They didn't tell me the location until I had accepted the offer, giving me two choices.

    Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Visionary Integration Professionals (Herndon, VA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I interviewed with their subsidiary, Meridian. I found the whole process, especially the communication, to be very efficient and organized. Appointments were made and kept and the interviewers were straightforward about what they do, their challenges, and way that they approach work. There were able to find candidates with more experience using their specific COTS product, and I was not made an offer. The recruiter whom I worked with was wonderful; upfront about everything through the entire process and let me know when I was no longer under consideration. I would definitely work with him again, and have a favorable view of Meridian.

    My only beef, and it's a minor one to some, is them asking for references as part of your application. I feel that giving out a reference's personal information is a discrete matter, and should only happen during the final stages, when an offer is seriously being considered.

    The interview had a bit of "trial by fire" role play, which was not unexpected to me, but might throw some folks off, so be prepared for that.

    I did get the impression that stakeholder management is an issue they've really struggled with, though they didn't come out an say it directly. Their clients sound a little more manic than most.
