Senior Product Manager Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Twitter (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.
I came in through a referral then a phone screen with a recruiter. This review pertains to a phone screen with the hiring manager, a Director of Product Management.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Twitter.
Twitter followed very good process for interview. Got an eMail within days after submitting resume. Had 2 phone screens. Got back to me saying that they were not going to move forward. I appreciated it. In the end 2nd interviewer said they were looking for a PMO sort of manager. This was a let down, I have been clear starting from recruiter that PMO is not my interest. I think 2 interviewers had a disconnect about what they were looking for.
