Senior Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Anonymous Employee
Interview Details

I was first contacted by an Amazon HR recruiter, who then set up a telephone interview with the hiring manager upon confirmation of my interest in the role. The interview focused on previous experiences and resulting strengths and weaknesses. There was a brief introduction to the role being filled and team structure, as well as opportunity for Q&A at the end. The tone was friendly throughout.

    Interview Details

    Recruited On-Campus First. Interview was hard. Case-Based and pushed a lot into every characteristic of the case

    Interview Questions
    • You go into the elevator and the CEO of a company Amazon wants to work with is there. Give me a 30 second pitch you would give him to get business from them. Second Round was 4, 45 minute interviews with different product managers at amazon. If you do badly in one you are basically done. I think all four of them have to say yes in order for you to get an offer. It's hard. They are very behavioral and ask about negotiations skills, teamwork, you must be metric oriented, etc. It's one of the toughest companies to interview with.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    The HR team seems very prompt & driven by SLAs. They are quick to respond, set up interviews & turn back around with thumbs up or down. The interviewers tend to be a mix of hiring managers, peers/ team members & stakeholders. i am in the prelim stages of the interview process having completed a number of phone screens.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions are pretty standard - success/failure type questions, resume walk, tell me about a time with occasional cases thrown in.   Answer Question

    I really enjoyed this. Some might find it daunting, but I got the chance to meet nine amazingly talented people in one afternoon. The questions were targeted and deep and engaging. I can't recommend them highly enough.
