    Interview Details

    It wasn't that bad of an interview, the guy was relatively nice and outgoing and gave me time to respond to some of the tougher questions that he asked. Not one of the hardest interviews that I have ever had.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Course Hero.

    Interview Details

    There was a series of two phone interviews both with the same person who was eventually my superior throughout my time at Course Hero. The phone interview was personality based and ensuring that you're able to talk to people and a competent person. Some research was necessary on Course Hero such as what do they do, what is the Knowledge Drive, the coolest features, ways they could improve the experience etc, so make sure you are well versed on their platform. The second interview was discussing my past leadership experiences and talking through my resume as well as my connections within my University and how I would reach out to the students.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was regarding my knowledge of the Course Hero Knowledge Drive platform so make sure you do your research and know what it is about, the incentives and bonuses to utilizing the Knowledge Drive.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, it was an accept or decline offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Course Hero.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview was very comfortable. Typical interview questions that anyone should be prepared for (e.g. why you would be a good fit for the company, experience, name a time when you...)

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question I struggled with was when I was asked if I've ever dealt with conflict in the workplace because of prior work experience, but you can easily turn it around and say what you would do in that given situation.   Answer Question

    I was offered to move up to Student Manager but I was offered an internship at home which I took.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood Shores, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Course Hero in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was referred to the hiring manager via a friend of a friend. Took a month for a phone call to happen between me and the hiring manager. Phone call was relaxed and no difficult questions, more so focused on my background/experience. The guy I talked to did mention that for people applying to PM roles, they ask candidates to complete a "strategy project" on 1 of 2 possible subject (potential products for the company) to later present in person (typical formats were Word or Powerpoint).

    I got an email from him the next day saying it was a pleasure to talk and giving details on the strategy project. In his email, he outlined the problem, current document model, and things to consider. He said I was more than welcome to contact him with any questions via cell or email as I worked through things. I indeed did ask him one or two things and he responded quickly, which was nice.

    I submitted my final presentation to him by the given deadline and went in to talk about it more in person a few days later. The in person interview was with just the hiring manager (same person I had talked to all along) and was mainly about how I had approached the project and how & why I said I would've done things (as stated in my presentation). Then there was some time for Q&A from me to him, where I was asked my availability and salary expectations.

    I received an email response the next day saying I was being passed on. Reasoning was the hiring manager was looking for someone with more experience regarding the other potential product they wanted to launch (the other strategy project I could've chosen to prepare). Seemed like a soft blow/save face reason given those skills weren't in the job description then, nor are they now as the job is re-listed.
