    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Hollywood, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hollywood, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Ticketmaster.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with multiple managers not knowing which one would eventually be my boss. Started with a phone interview by a recruiter, then a second followup recruiter interview to ask deeper questions. Total time was about 30 minutes each. Third meeting was in person, in a conference room where several managers came in and out. Lasted about an hour. Fourth meeting with was VP level management in person. Lasted about 45 minutes. Interviews were very casual, non-threatening, and evenly balanced between interviewer and interviewee.

    First impression of the office was: Casual environment, jeans, button down shirts and tennis shoes. Management dressed the same, maybe slightly nicer. This was encouraging. Everyone seemed very relaxed and the office had a medium level of noise. Basically, not as quiet as a library and not as loud as a broker bull pen.

    Yes, negotiated lightly, but not aggressively. I wanted to work there and just needed a few extra dollars to make it worth living in the city.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Hollywood, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hollywood, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Ticketmaster in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    First I was contacted by a recruiter, who put me in touch with 2 marketing specialists who asked in depth questions. They were both extremely nice. From there I spoke with the director of marketing, who rescheduled twice, and asked me the dumbest questions as if she couldn't care less and couldn't be bothered.

    I had thought that I wanted to work for TicketMaster / LiveNation, but after reading the company reviews on Glassdoor then speaking with this miserable lady who encompassed all of the negative reviews in a 25 minute phone call, I lost all interest in the position and it showed in my responses.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked why I wanted to work for Ticketmaster/Livenation, which is expected. The two marketing specialists loved the response, the director of marketing didn't comment and moved past it.   Answer Question

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Hollywood, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hollywood, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ticketmaster in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted shortly after submitting an application. Interviewed with 2 recruiters by phone and then 3 more in person interviews at the Hollywood office. Everyone at the office had business casual attire on, but I wore a suit and tie. I was complimented on the suit and tie, but was told of their relaxed dress code.
    I was asked a lot of industry specific questions and some general questions on product management and "my style for developing specs."
    Was contacted by the recruiters again for salary and benefits negotiation. No drug test, but they do require a basic background check.

    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  West Hollywood, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Hollywood, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Ticketmaster in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process began after I was contacted by a recruiter. She reviewed my qualifications, but even after I completed the first initial review, I felt that she had not yet internalized my skillset and how it applied to the opening. Nonetheless, I advanced in the process. A week later I was contacted, and asked to submit writing samples. Then nothing for another week. At the time, I wasn't hungry for the job, so I wasn't overly eager to make a change. I was asked to come in for an in person interview where I met with 2 people for 30 minutes each. A week later it was followed up with more paperwork, which was then followed up with another phone interview. I didn't do anything after that, but then I got the offer about a week later. Very slow.

    Reasons for Declining

    Ticketmaster is under a time of intense change - there seemed to be significant turnover and I was concerned about the culture of the organization. The best area in the company seemed to be product.
