    Good company. Strong management. They try new ideas. A bit stale personality and social wise.

    I worked at Epson America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of meetings to gain consensus. Very Process driven. Chance to learn new tactics.

    Cons

    Deadline after deadline without any enjoyment of the attainment of project completion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hunger to gain market share is coming at the expense of burnt out employees.

    Associate Product Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epson America.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by HR Recruiter and conducted an initial telephone interview. Then had an in-person interview with the hiring manager (round 1). After passing that round, I met with another peer-manager who conducted a consulting-style case interview (round 2). Then the 3rd and final round was an all-day meeting at Epson America headquarters (round 3). They put me through a 3-hour rigorous analyst test (case w/ tons of data) in a private room, and afterwards I had to present my findings, insights, and recommendation to a group panel of managers. After the presentation, they had Q&A, where I had to justify my assumptions and conclusions. There were other questions not directly related to the case analyst test. Some of the questions were quite challenging. Definitely tested my analytical and critical thinking skills.Then I met with other people within the group for about 5 more 1-on-1 interviews. Definitely the most challenging interview process I've ever had to go through. I can see how the Strategy group definitely weeds out weaker candidates with the sheer rigor of their interview process for this position. They are very selective, and one must be able to perform well under pressure. Total interview process from start to finish took about 1 month... they moved much faster than I expected. Overall, a challenging but pleasant experience. Good people.

    Interview Questions
    • Market sizing questions. Market research questions. Situational questions like "You're the director of X business unit. This scenario happens. What's your plan of action? Why?" Case interview questions about their LOB. Had to be prepared for any type of question to be thrown out there, really.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Non-negotiable. However, they were very fair.
