Associate Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Google in October 2016.

Interview

Started with a call with the recruiter then went on to an interview with a PM - this was mainly behavioural and design questions. They seemed to be looking for a specific framework to your response which I was not aware of at the time - it is only after doing more courses in HCI and design thinking that I realized that my answer wasn't structured the way they wouold've desired.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews, then proceeded with on-sites. On-sites included three back-to-back interviews. One technical, but fuzzy technical. No real coding questions asked, mostly just product related questions. Prepped via How to Crack the PM Interview book. Worked out fine.

    Interview

    1 hour long phone interview, 1 take-home project, + on-campus full day consisting of 3 interviews (1 of these coding). Pretty straightforward process and they gave me very good feedback after denying me final round.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Google (Stanford, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online after going to an informational session at my college campus. I was asked to do a brief (30 min) interview at my university. Soon after, I was contacted and asked to do a series of interviews at the Google campus. At the Google campus, I had three 45 min interviews with three different people followed by lunch with a Google employee. The Google employee honestly didn't seem excited by what he was doing and didn't seem to want to be having lunch with me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, but because I didn't go through a referral and wasn't on campus for the career fair I went through the normal pool. Received the interview mid November. About two weeks later I got a call that they wouldn't be moving forward because the small class of 45 (from a couple thousand applicants) was already full.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Google (Berkeley, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Google came to my university and I gave the recruiters my resume, then they emailed me and asked me to come in for an interview. It was a quick one with a Senior Product Manager who seemed to like me, and took notes while I wrote on the board.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Google (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very pleasant. The Interviewer ask many questions about product management and process management. Also some wired questions about anything. So the process is pleasant but the result is bad.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a recruiter contacting me from a previous application. Initial phone screen interview was 2 questions - one estimation and one product driven.

    Next was 4 onsite interviews, 3 in the morning, 1 after lunch. Those questions were product, estimation, and vision for Google.

    After that was a writing assessment, which was sent out 2 weeks after the above. They gave me 3 days to finish it, but they say try not to spend more than 2 hours on it.

    Finally I had an interview with Brian Rakowski, the head of the APM program. That was some resume questions and a product question. Very laid back interview, not intimidating.
