I have onsite interview for scheduled Apple Silicon Engineering Program Manager. Any interview tips would be helpful.
How much technical expertise would help?
What are the killer behavioral questions?
Anybody here in EPM role? How is day to day life? Work life balance?
- Apple / Data JohnapplemoreI am a dev but I feel our EPM’s life is vey simple, just need gather requirements, clarify the scope, talk with devs, follow the schedule. Pretty much meeting and documenting every day. No single technical related stuff.
- EPM in SEG is not that bad. 9-6pm you have to work hard. Go from one meeting to another. Talk to a ton of people. Beg people for data. But the position has high visibility and good scope. I’m not sure how the career progression is. There is a significant amount of technical knowledge needed is what I hear.
- Thanks guys, I don't mind working hard as long as it is visible pays well and has career growth. I am currently in Engineering Management role and work is very monotonous. Doing the same thing again and again. I am hoping that this role will give me understanding of whole silicon flow and how things are done in real world rather than running some simulation. Are EPM paid at par with other developers/managers.
