    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oakland, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at EQECAT (Oakland, CA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Initial communications were through people I knew, helping me find a fit for my capabilities. Interview structure was somewhat informal - the process seemed to be customized for every applicant. My own process started with a phone conversation (not really interview) with the CEO, then a phone interview with the director of Product Management, then a formal presentation of my prior work to the whole management team, then an in-person interview with the product management director, and finally a meet-and-greet with the rest of the product management team.
