Manager Level Position Interview

Manager Level Position
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at LiveCareer in December 2013.

Interview Details – Initial communication was via LinkedIn, then I had a phone interview, followed by 3 visits to the office for face-to-face interviews. Then was told that I would hear back the next day. I didn't hear from them for 2.5 weeks. Not professional at all. If you weren't going to call - don't tell me you are. If you don't know an answer the next day - that's understandable - either don't tell me you're going to call or call and tell me you don't have an update. Follow through is critical. I'm selling you on my skills, but you're also selling me on the company. Not a good impression.

Product Manager Interview

Product Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at LiveCareer in November 2013.

Interview Details – The team is seeking multiple roles - Product Mgr on Web and Mobile to build out their baseline product ResumeBuilder. The interview entailed: 1 HR Phone screener, 1 Group Interview with Sr. PM and HR, 1 Group Interview with Product and Program Mgmt Executives. The final round also included a homework assignment to plot out their Mobile Roadmap. The firm uses offshore engineering which places more emphasis on getting specs completely written out and makes the whole development less agile. Be prepared to stress that you are comfortable working in a slow environment. The role is probably more project management as you will be working with a Senior PM that has more control of the roadmap. The leadership team does not seem to take risks, and is maintaining the cash-cow product. Much of the monetization strategy relies on luring individuals into trials and renewing subscriptions at higher costs. The team does not seem too interested in working on ideas outside of resume creation.

Interview Question – Build the business case for why LiveCareer should be allowing users to search for jobs from their mobile device.   Answer Question

Average Interview


Noida (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at LiveCareer in May 2014.

Interview Details – (1) Written Test with face to face HR discussion
(2) First technical interview (Question about last project and basics from Testing)
(3) Managerial round

After third round I was asked to leave and after 20 Days again I received a call from HR for final discussion for the same position. I reached there after taking leave for one day but Senior Manager was not present in this case the manager took my interview. HR informed that sr manager is on sick leave so they will arrange a interview on call

Next day I got call from the same company that they want me to meet to Sr manager, again I took leave and reached to their office with my documents (as they have asked me to bring to process the offer letter).

(4) Final round completed and submitted all the photo copies of my current job related, final salary discussion done. with promise they asked me to leave next day I will get the soft copy of offer letter.

Now it has been one month no offer letter reached to me. I called them twice but no positive reply.
