    Product Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Valencia, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviews included a HR phone screen, a phone conversation with the hiring manager, and all-day in-person interviews at the company's offices in Valencia with the marketing team. One thing that made the interview process difficult was that it was only communicated to me towards the end of the process that I was interviewing for a slightly different position / product team than what I had originally applied to.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of questions around leadership and project management capabilities, as well as understanding of marketing & product management frameworks any how the candidate has applied them in past experiences.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Marlborough, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with recruiter followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager. Next round was in person with 6 people either on site or via video conference. Followed up multiple times with recruiter who kept saying they will get back to me by the end of the week. I stopped following up after a few weeks. Very unprofessional to not close the loop.

    Embedded Software Engineering Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Boston Scientific.

    Interview

    The process took more than a month. After phone interview with hiring manager and other engineers I was assigned to take Brainbench online test for embedded systems and I was told that it is a standard way of the process. I took that test, which was moderate on difficulty. A few weeks later I was invited for onsite interview. The interview was friendly. A week later I was called and offered for this position, however the salary range was far below of my expectations. Finally I have declined this offer, because I had gotten a better offer. I would advise to hiring managers informing potential candidates about salary range for this position prior to inviting for onsite interview.

    Interview Questions

    • There were several questions related to problem solving, algorithms, RTOS and embedded programming.   Answer Question
