AVG Technologies Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Product Manager - AVG Privacy Products - SAN Francisco - Oct 2013 Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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.
