    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Facebook.

    Interview

    It was intense, but interesting. The interviewers were really helpful and were guiding the conversation. There were 3 interviews: sense, design and leadership. Had to re-do one of the interviews, which is great that they provide this opportunity. Other companies are not as helpful.
