Senior contract manager interview questions shared by candidates
the CFO asked me to describe a circumstance where I did not get along with a superior manager and how I handled it.
I answered honestly about my last manager (only worked for 8 months) who harassed me and treated me very unprofessionally. Yet I did not stoop to his level, continued to treat him with respect and most importantly never allowed it to affect my workplace, or my project (and continued to get outstanding performance awards). I also made certain I described how my prior management training and experiences, my team and project leadership and how obtaining my Leadership Certificate significantly helped me with this situation b/c it contained classroom experiences/role playing in each Communicating Across Cultures, Dealing with Difficult People and Conflict Resolution Courses.
Didn't get that far, but I have to say this is the third time I have gone through this process and each time it peters out after the homework. It is very difficult to understand what they want because in a real life job, I have never had a problem drafting a contract.
3 round robin interview, then 2 round robin interview the following week by team. I was interviewed by 9 people overall, peers, managers and director.
