    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at JustAnswer (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Phone screens first - a few of them. In them they asked about salary and title expectations among other things. Then emails - I think they were seeing how I write. Then in-person interviews at the office. They were 1-on-1 with my future boss, people in the department, people in other departments, and informally with the recruiter too. After I passed all of those, they called me with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of them. About my work experience, what I'm looking for, why JustAnswer, why this role, my strengths and weaknesses, whether I am more meticulous or speedy, where do I want to be in 5 years, then lots of situational questions about my past experience and also role playing what I'd do in different situations at JustAnswer.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They asked me what my walk-away was. Then they offered it.

    Great Interview process. Had brief phone screen with the recruiter followed by two in person interviews. First in person interview was with the hiring manager and one of my counterparts on the team. I was brought back in to meet with my hiring manager again, an additional counterpart as well as the founder. I was totally blown away by everyone I interviewed with as well as the founder making time to meet with me.

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JustAnswer (San Francisco, CA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and received immediate response from HR. Had a follow-up call with HR where further discussed the details of this opportunity. Next step was a call with director of product which went well and got invited for 4 hr onsite interview. Was scheduled to meet PM, Director of PM, Director of Engineering, and CEO. After interviewed with PM and director of PM was told by HR person that they already gave an offer to somebody else and are currently in the process of background verification so I'm not going to meet Dir of Eng and CEO. Guess that meant that I haven't met expectations of PM and Dir of PM during first and second part of interview. Sent thank you email and received reply from HR that this position was put on hold and their actual need is for Dir of Optimization instead. Bit confusing experience. PM and Dir of PM were really well prepared for this interview, better than any other company I've interviewed with. They're using behavioral style of interviewing and they have a long list of very detailed questions. Excellent job on the interviewing side but very disappointing on the communication one.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at JustAnswer (San Francisco, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Recruiter was VERY organized. Initial phone interview, follow up phone interview, then 3 hour in person interview with C-level staff. 2nd round (another 3 hours) of interviews with Director level staff. Really smart folks, excellent experience. Spent time to give me the tour of the facility, meet key staff, and ensure I had a very good sense of what was expected. CEO called me to discuss offer over the weekend, and gave a good, honest sense of the culture, the challenges and the opportunities.

    Interview Questions

    • How my work would directly impact the product team: without knowing what the major goals were, was hard to be able to estimate the impact.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very transparent: offer came in at the mid-high end of expectations, which had been communicated. They were extremely tenacious to ensure it met my expectations, and were flexible in both explanations and package value.
