Senior Technical Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
Declined Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Siemens Energy (San Jose, CA) in March 2012.

Interview

Interviewing was cordial but the hiring manager was not friendly at all. It was also very obvious that it was a very stressful work culture as Siemens had recently acquired some companies and was involved in a difficult merger and acquisition (M&A) process. Finally, there was some disconnect between the HR group and the hiring manager, since many of the job requirements were not properly listed in the job specification or requirements. I was under the impression that due to the M&A, even the HR team was highly overloaded with work.

Interview Questions

  • Describe one architectural decision using any Web Services technology (in a relevant past position) and how you would use that design and/or experience in this role.   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

The work culture and environment seemed overly hectic and the position I applied for should have been filled many months ago, requiring unhealthy levels of time commitment up front.
