The point of the interview process is to determine whether the candidate possesses, the pristine communication skills, and extremely out-going and assertive personality, to be successful in this position. The answer to that questions, is not necessarily judged by what the candidate says, but rather how he/she is able to communicate the point, and the level of confidence he or she is able to convey. Power Play Marketing is looking for candidates with a student mentality, who are confident and out-going, yet eager to learn and take direction.
My Answer: I currently am going to school to complete my Unix Administration certification so at the moment I have no hands on experiance. I intially was not aware that Unix was required, should I leave now? My Comment: The interviewers laughed and told me to just stay put...it wasnt that big of a deal. --but apparently it was since I didnt get the job because I lacked Unix experiance.
It was a trick question...critical path should not have any slack
^^That's not exactly true. Tasks on the critical path refer to the tasks with the least amount of slack, or better put, tasks that if not completed first will adversely affect the end date of the project. I've seen some PM's consider tasks with <5 days of slack as their determining factor, others go as high as 10 days. Either way, it wasn't a trick question, the interviewer just wanted to see if you understood what the Critical Path was.
