    Product Manager - AVG Privacy Products - SAN Francisco - Oct 2013 Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AVG Technologies in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Job opening was advertised by staffing agency. Sent resume to recruiter and received immediate response. After initial phone screen recruiter set up phone interview with hiring manager (VP of Product). Phone interview went well and hiring manager mentioned several times that is very impressed with my background and employment history. After the phone interview never heard back from recruiter or hiring manager. Two weeks later made several calls to recruiter to get a status of my application but had no luck. Left message - No response. Sent follow up email - No response. Called hiring manager - No response. Emailed hiring manager - No response. Perhaps they found better fit but after experience like this don't think that would want to be part of this team and report to a manager that cannot even complete hiring process by sending final status to all who applied.

    2 interviews, i did not pass the first one that was only technical.

    Interview Questions
    • They gave me 45 minutes and a list of Android questions on a paper. Then they came back and we discussed the answers.
      The android questions were mainly around services/async task/broadcast receivers- when to use each one of them. Also discuss how to deal with data between processes (IPC) and some storage options.

      At the end they asked me to design a messaging client app (kind of whatsapp) in a very high level.
