    Produktmanager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AMD in January 2014.

    Interview

    Standardvorstellungsgespräch ohne überraschende Effekte. Sehr schlecht vorbereitetes Personalabteilung, wenig Interesse am Gegenüber. Fragen nach Strategie, Vision des Unternehmens, Einarbeitung, Weiterentwicklungsmöglichkeiten konnten nur unzureichend beantwortet werden. Bei Gehaltsfrage abgeblockt, da kein Interesse an Zusammenarbeit meinerseits vorhanden mehr war. War ein ernüchterndes Gespräch, Bauchgefühl sagte "Nein" zu dieser Firma. Habe jetzt Stelle bei anderer Firma gefunden, die passender ist.
