Product Manager Interview

Product Manager
Stamford, CT

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at W. R. Berkley.

Interview Details – Interview was a joke and a waster of my time. Hiring manager was late showing up with no apology, wearing jeans and continually checked his watch during the interview.

Interview Question – How about most stupid question. I was asked how I would approach painting a room. I told the guy, I wouldn't. I would hire a painter that actually knew what they were doing. Compare bids and reviews and make a decision.   Answer Question
