    Senior Practice Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sydney
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at EMC in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was torturous. As well as the immediate manager you have to meet with the business unit leadership PLUS any other business unit heads that you may have to connect with. For me this meant NINE meetings - which I have never experienced before even for more senior roles.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any. Most of the meetings were "box-ticking" exercises. One guy even did his email while we chatted (said he was taking notes).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They were pretty good - they accept that they need to offer as much as they can when you join as they have no idea when you might get a substantial increase.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at EMC in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was referred by an existing employee I met at a conference.

    Steps:

    - Phone

    - Technical/Strategy with the team-lead
    - Personality with executive 1/2

    Overall, of any interview I've ever been involved with, this the most in-depth from a background perspective.

    My online activity for blogging, twitter and various commenting on sites was brought up. Something as recent as I posted on a site the night before, was a discussion point in the interview the following morning. I was extremely impressed with their HR.
