I am about to interview candidates for an IT Project Manager position and wonder if anyone would be willing to share their interview questions. Feel free to contact me off-list.

Ken, I think that this is a great question for this list. One of the questions that I have is how the project manager would deal with a team member that does not report to them but is not completing their tasks on time jeopardizing the project. You want to make sure that the project manager is willing to escalate issues. Another situation you may ask is a situation where the project manager is asked to take on a project where another manager is the sponsor. The project is falling behind, but the sponsor does not want it reported because it will make them look bad. See how they answer this question. It deals both with office politics and ethics of the project manager.

I also try to ask situational/behavioral questions to see how the project manager deals with certain project based situations. I try to think about real situations that I have had to deal with in my day to day life in our environment. I don't try to think of the worst situation I've been in, but rather a fairly typical situation that I find myself in all the time. It usually has to do with a change in scope coming up in the middle of a project or disagreements among project stakeholders. It may be different for your environment, but I find that it helps to gauge the candidate's reaction to the situation and to our environment, gives them a better picture of what they are getting into and leads into more conversations about what it is really like to be a project manager in higher ed. Kelley Anderson, MBA, PMP, CSM Principal Business Analyst CMUWorks Carnegie Mellon University Mellon Institute 409 Pittsburgh, PA 15213 kelleya@cmu.edu 412-268-4208 http://www.cmu.edu/hr/cmu-works/
We also give the top candidates a "homework" assignment to be prepared and brought to face-to-face interviews. They come prepared to discuss whatever real life situation we have posed. (For example, I had to prepare a cost-benefit analysis on a situation.) Most candidates come with presentations and/or documentation to support the "homework". Since our group manages projects all over campus, we need to see how the candidate handles themselves during presentations to strange. It sounds tough but we have gotten some really good hires as a result! Linda Saul Senior Project Manager Enterprise Process Support Syracuse University Syracuse, New York
Agreed with Kelley - design questions around scenario that are true to life, preferably that have happened and that you know are likely to recur.

The wording of the question is key: ask them to relate a time when the candidate has faced such a situation, how they handled it, what they learned from the result, and what they would do differently next time. Most candidates, being human, will fall back to the hypothetical answer "I would do this . . . "; you'll want to ask them to speak to an actual event in their past - "tell us about a time this actually happened? What did you do?" 

If they handled the situation well, you'd like to know how they did it. If they didn't handle it so successfully, you want evidence that they've reflected on the experience and have learned from it. 

It's very interesting how forthcoming and honest people will be when you insist on a story from them. If you haven't done this type of interviewing before, be prepared for some longer-than-usual silences while the candidate searches their memory - let them know it's okay to take the time to find the best example from their history.

One of the obvious and perhaps low level questions is how does the PM deal with scope creep? This question should lead to an answer which covers all aspects of project initiation, charter sign-off, communication planning and status reporting. Another favorite is how does the PM deal with multiple high priority projects and limited resources. Here the PM needs to be creative or pursue the prioritization path or eliminate functionality if they all demand equal priority and resources cannot be increased.

Great question Ken.
Because project managers can have such a broad range of experience, I find the process of understanding candidates' capabilities a challenge. As such, I've incrementally found better ways to quickly get to the nuts and bolts of their capabilities and approach, refining all the time. Right now, I am a big proponent of homework. I give 3 mini cases that I send to candidates ahead of time. They are based on real-life occurrences and are typical of our work - some with problems, like reluctant team, team member not performing, scope creep, and some neutral scenarios like communication approaches to different types of stakeholders, etc. The mini cases have follow-on questions like "draw up a rough WBS for this project" or "describe how you would manage and mitigate risks for this project" etc. I ask them to review and be prepared to discuss, but don't make them write anything up. The enterprising candidates will write something up and will be very well prepared. For junior roles / candidates with little to zero work experience, I give problem solving exercises on the fly (not ahead of time) that have nothing to do with project management, but help me understand their critical thinking skills. Since my PMs are also required to have business analysis skills, I will often provide Jr. and mid-level candidates with a poorly written project request / business case and ask them to 1) correct and rewrite following our project intake guidelines (demonstrates writing skills and, honestly, following instructions / attention to detail) and 2) consider the risks, issues, and value to the College that the particular request may bring. Through this, I also get a sense of their understanding of technology, based on the content of the request. Happy to provide my actual docs if anyone's interested. Robyn
Robyn, I love this idea and approach! You definitely got my attention. Would you mind sharing your docs with me?

So it looks like Robyn will be sharing ‘homework’ examples she uses.

 

I’m attaching a ‘bank’ of questions we pull from for interviewing phone and in person that may be of help as well. There is a section with questions specific to project management.

Hi all, Thanks for your interest in my interview homework questions. As promised, my mini-cases are attached here. I could think of dozens more that would be suitable, and you should certainly consider tailoring to the needs of your own institution. I've also attached the project intake exercise that I referenced. I usually only get to one or maybe two of the mini-cases during the actual interview; depending on the type/strengths/weaknesses of the candidate, I can pick which I want to address. Hope this helps, Robyn
