Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Pleasanton, CA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2013.

Interview Details Its for a 1 year contract PM position through a staffing firm. I had 3 phone interviews with a peer (PM), Program Dir, AD Director. There was no f2f interview since the need was urgent. They didnt give an answer until I really pushed my HR to get one. Then they offered the job.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
London, England (UK)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2011.

Interview Details Pretty straight forward. I did need to come in a number of times to meet a number of different people, a total of 6 at varying levels and couple that I never worked with but who were asked to contribute feedback.

Interview Question – The questions were really simple. Given the number of people I met, I believe they were trying to determine whether I would be a good cultural fit rather than whether I could do the job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much of a nogotiation.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Details Called by Recruiter to set up interview within a week of applying for position. Set up interview for two days later.
Interviewed with 2 people separately in 30 minute sessions. No technical questions at all; only situational and experiences.
Called the next day to set up follow-up interview. Booked it for the next day. Met with that person for about an hour. Again, no technical questions, just experiences and situational scenarios.
Called same day by recruiter to discuss salary. Called the next day with the offer, which I accepted.

I must say in all my years, this was the most professional interview experience I've ever had.

Interview Question – Nother really. Just the usual SAR (Situation Action Results) questions. BE PREPARED for those. If you aren't you're done for. Be ready to handle conflict resolution, motivation, difficult clients/co-workers/subordinates/etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Pretty cut and dry. This is what the market bears so do you want the offer or don't you?
