Easy Interview

Senior Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Twitter.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – All questions were relatively easy trying to understand my background and experience   Answer Question
