    PMO Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Plains All American Pipeline.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the PMO Director. She was totally clueless about running a PMO. All she talked about was how you have to allow a VP to hijack meetings and that the culture there is different from most places. I asked about processes and she redirected the conversation to how the VP takes over meetings and diverts the project managers away from the meeting focus. I asked her about the portfolio of projects and all she said was that they don't do infrastructure related projects.This job has been open for a long time and they keep posting it online. It makes me wonder if it is a real job because with the number of qualified people available in Houston and they are not able to fill the position. Makes me think she wants someone who isn't a threat to her job. I do not recommend wasting time with this company.

    Interview Questions

    • Why would you want to work here? Tell me about yourself. Where do you see yourself in 5 years. Nothing spectacular. Very generic questions.   Answer Question
