Product Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

Easy Interview

Application

interviewed at Dell (New York, NY) in May 2014.

Interview

First round interviews was a panel of 3. Was not intense but validating whats on your resume and experience to do the job. My recommendation would be to be confident and don't lie on your resume because they will expose you. Be prepared for the panel type interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick and very professional. You will hear back pretty quickly after the panel interview regarding the offer. I advice you be very prepared for the interviews. They are in depth regarding your knowledge of product marketing, processes, cross functional teams, engineering (agile vs waterfall), and technologies. If you know your field and have the appropriate experience, you should be fine, but brush up on your product management/marketing training.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a time when you were doing go to market planning and you had to quickly make a change. What did you do and what was the result?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Dell has an aggressive salary proposal out of the gate. I was honest about the current positions I was interviewing for and their salary range, which I believe helped me to receive the appropriate salary on the first offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Had a phone pre-screen with a very polished internal talent acquisition person, followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager (most notable question - "Why do you think you're suited for this position?") within the same week. Dell flew me out to Austin for interviews. I met with three in person and had phone interviews with an exec. director and another consultant over a period of 3 hrs.: - very technical, in-depth (protocol level) questions - product marketing techniques They were very professional, but in the end - there was a company-wide hiring freeze (for most positions).

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dell (Round Rock, TX) in December 2008.

    Interview

    The first contact was a phone screen by an internal recuriter. After passing the phone screen, I was scheduled for a series of interviews that lasted 4 hours. Dell parades in one manager after another for about 3 -4 hours. You are completely exhausted by the end of the day. The company uses behavior questions i.e. desribe a time when you worked with a dificult co-worker and how you resolved the issue. There is no faking the answers, so, go in prepared with lots of examples of your prior work - especially the challenges.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dell in July 2011.

    Interview

    ? Negotiation needs as much preparation as the job interview in itself. ? Negotiation scorecard/Planning document is essential to think on the fly during talks with HR ? Always get the Offer in writing even if the HR verbally assures the job. ? Avoid talking about numbers early On and talk more about the job and the responsibilities ? Building a rapport with the Hiring Manager and the HR helps in the negotiation process ? There needs to be a checkpoint when the negotiation needs to stop lest it being considered aggressive ? Understanding the exact job position considered during interview and finally offered is critical ? Unless asked, HR won’t offer perks such as relocation, Sign-on bonus ? Base salary decides what level one would end up after 4 or 5 years. It needs to be negotiated clearly.

    Hiring process is spread across different rounds of interviews that are conducted by the Group that you will be joining in followed by HR and then the final round will be a Video conferencing round if you are a outstation candidate. In my case there were a total of 7 rounds of interview followed by a video conferencing round. Stick to your basics and your previous company's experiene and it is easy to get through.
