Product Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in September 2013.

Interview Details – Flew me in for a third round interview. The interview consisted of 8 back to back interviews with various employees within the department. The schedule of who I interviewed with was a little mixed up and different from the initial schedule. Everyone for the most part was nice to talk to but a few seemed uninterested. Pretty straight forward with mostly behavioral questions and a few on the job hypothetical questions.

Product Marketing Manager Interview

Product Marketing Manager
San Diego, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in December 2010.

Interview Details – Very intensive, consisted of 9 back-to-back interviews with team members from multiple disciplines including R&D, Design, and Marketing. Initial conversations via phone and over coffee were very casual. On-site interviews were friend, but exhaustive. They knew what they were getting if they hired me, before the made the offer.

HP is very collaborative, they are seeking out people with conviction and leadership skills. They wanted someone who could hit the ground running. Probed on relevant experiences and approach to job.

Interview Question – Why not apply at other tech firms?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Complex, but very fair in evaluating a fair compensation.
