    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burnaby, BC (Canada)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fraser Health (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online. Interviewed with Hiring Manager by phone, then with the panel in a second interview. The interview process was pleasant. Seemed like a genuinely nice group. Questions were appropriate.

    Reflecting back on the interview, I could see several passive 'signs' that my application was likely rejected before the end of the interview despite having extensive experience in healthcare and in the project space. The panel was unable to answer quite a few technical and strategy questions, with some answers feeling artificially blunted and short. It would have been a great opportunity to work with the projects and team. Could have made a great impact. Job was reposted days after the interview.

    Suggestions for Interviewing:

    The health authorities have some challenges with maintaining budget and schedule, so it is important to be able to provide answers that show you achieving these despite the organizational barriers or culture.

    Also display an ability to manage resistance and conflict well, with an indirect (not direct) approach.

    The questions in the interview also serve as the checklist for evaluating if the candidate has experience in the specific areas (1, 2, 3, ). Answers need to provide precise examples that the candidate can handle the challenges/responsibilities expected in the role; and display attitudes, values, and solutions that are respectful, conflict-avoidant, and optimistic.

    A high risk-avoidance can limit receptiveness to challenging the status quo or implementing new approaches. A bloated bureaucracy also requires a very thoughtful and researched approach before engaging upper management on any changes/risks. Outsiders are accepted into the in-group slowly. Formal leadership roles have more opportunity to influence change after extended engagement.

    Answers are evaluated heavily on qualitative criterion and West Coast Canadian values (respect authority/hierarchies, conflict-avoidant, empathetic, obedient, relationship-based, etc). Discussions can emphasize a performance focus, but implementation will prioritize relationships and the status quo (implied, not explicitly).

    Conflicting priorities need to be managed carefully as these frequently undermine workplace goals. Humility and ability to learn is crucial, although accepting blame or fault is uncommon. Discrepancies between Espoused & Held (actual) beliefs should not be pointed out unless identified as a general consensus. Although you can often encounter remarkable aggression or passive-aggression, here it is best to not comment on these management behaviours any more than required as this could be perceived as challenging cultural norms in the current organization.

    Candidate will also need to display comfortability and support of the approaches, tools, and standards used by the Health Authority. Mainstream Canadian culture is largely individualistic, but answers should typically emphasize a collectivist approach and values. Roles emphasize power and status, but stated strategies should emphasize collaboration, taking initiative, and respect. From a subordinate role, you are expected to accommodate and take into account your bosses' skills and abilities (and weaknesses), and adjust your approach and workload accordingly.

    Health Care Information Systems Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fraser Health (Vancouver, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Pretty standard, although they probably haven't read your cover letter so you'll end up reiterating what you wrote on your cover letter. Didn't realize this until near the end where they were asking questions that were already on the cover letter. Conducted by two people.
