Product Manager Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Sears (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.
interview with multiple PM's and senior people up to VP. two visits to Hoffman Estates which is out in the middle of nowhere. No Train station near and over an hour in traffic to commute from down town Chicago. Phone interview to start with incredibly nice and efficient HR people. The best part of the company.
- Obvious the managers were not very skilled. keenly focused on whether you actually did the work.
What was your process, What did you do, how did you do it. Asking questions about things they were not good at.
Really good indication this company will not succeed. 1 Answer

Great interviewing process.......Maybe feel welcomed

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Sears (Chicago, IL) in December 2012.
Recruiter mails me and schedules a first 'fit' phone interview.
He schedules the next two (phone) interviews during this first round itself- One with the hiring manager and the next one with a VP.
Mostly resume based questions and little behavioral.
Scheduled next round, on-site, in Chicago, after 1 week.
Had total 5 interviews, back-to-back, from morning to evening.
Product Manager InterviewNo OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Sears (Schaumburg, IL) in December 2012.
Intro: I am fresh masters graduate.
Phone screen with HR. Went great.
Scheduled next round with hiring manager. Went great.
Scheduled next round with Director. Went great.
Took 1 month to schedule the on-site. (It was the New years time, so can't blame them but ONE MONTH?)
On-site. Was received well and taken into a room. The "interrogation" began! There were continuous 5 rounds with no break. I was given the schedule for the interview before hand but there was no use since 3 out of the 5 scheduled were replaced by someone else last minute!
Some were just talking non-sense. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!
The hiring manager was the best though; she was a nice lady who asked sensible questions.
I could feel the lack of maturity that only experience can give you, while I was answering the questions. After following up for a 1000 times I get a sorry email!
Later, I get to know that the position was filled by a 12 years retail experienced person.
So, bottom line IT WAS A PURE TIME WASTE for me!
