    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Tyson Foods.

    Interview Details

    thorough process, but do not be fooled, the process is designed well, not the interview teams
    this is a company that was 24 hours from bankrupt 6 years ago. Many of the midlevel managers are not developed anywhere except Tyson. Make sure you carefully interview them as they interview you.
    Do not look for the sophistication or education or talent you might experience from other 40 Billion dollar companies. This company has grown through acquisition not genius of sales and marketing.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called in for an interview about a week later. I was interviewed by a panel of three. The questions were mostly typical behavioral interview questions. Overall the process was pleasant, but I decided the opportunity wasn't personally what I was looking for career wise before an offer was extended.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Tyson Foods.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews scheduled by a recruiter after an online application. It is hard to get your resume to the hiring manager without an inside reference. Approximately a month long process. I have no complaints.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview was brief. Mainly talked about my experience and where I saw myself. Typical interview questions to get a feel for your personality and to see if you're a fit for the position. The follow up phone call was more of the same, but with more detail.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Very smooth. I negotiated additional vacation time and the response from HR was timely. Satisfied overall.
