Product Management Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intuit (Mountain View, CA) in February 2015.

Interview

Phone interview followed by two Skype interviews (my case was unusual because it was later in the hiring process and I couldn't come for an in-person interview). Phone interview was with a recruiter and the Skype interviews were with a couple of senior product managers. There were mostly behavioral questions and they asked me to describe an idea I had for an app (see below).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Intuit (Mountain View, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    After staffing agency was asked to present candidates by a deadline, Intuit was very slow to respond to staffig agency and did not initiate phone screens until 5 weeks later. Company is trying to change to SaaS and is interested in experience managing change. If you are applying to multiple positions and don't click with one hiring manager, you will most likely not have a chance at the other position -- the company values collaboration and the negative impressin on one hiring manager will disqualify you for the other position.

    Interview

    I have been using their product for a while now and have heard a lot of good things about the company but the recruiting process is really infuriating. HR and the recruiting team should understand that they are the Intuit frontier. The way they treat their candidates is nothing shy of saying “we enjoy wasting your time and talent”. It really baffles me to think that a company whose very roots and principles are based on customer focussed approach falls short on providing that mediocre experience (forget unexceptional) that an interviewing candidate deserves.

    Here’s a snapshot of what I had to go through:

    The recruiter called me and literally sold me on the position which is one level below of my current designation. Recruiter connected with me on an interpersonal level talking about a great work life balance and super nice people. Makes you wanna think — Intuit, ooh dream company. Right? Read up.

    After our talk I was really impressed and excited. So I decided to go for it. Recruiter set up a call with the hiring manager within a week. Call went well and was asked to come on site for a in-person. I sent a couple of emails to the recruiter with my availability and didn’t receive any response until two weeks after. When I received an email, it was to come for an onsite interview for 5 hours the next day. Obviously I had to say no.

    One week after that I was scheduled for an onsite. The night before and the day of the interview I kid you not, the timing and interview panel changed on me like 4 times. In the three weeks that I was waiting for the recruiter to schedule an onsite, I had asked for white-papers/company product blogs that I should look into. No response at all.

    Day of the interview – met with the team. All great people. Got a really good vibe. I think the interview went well on both ends. The reason I can say this is because I was asked for references the next day and that usually is a good sign based on my past experience. Provided the references to which the recruiter replied right away like three times. A week goes by and no word. Then I am asked to meet with a few other folks on the team for an in-person. Once that was scheduled, I filed for a half-day from work. Now the night before, the recruiter sends me an email that the interview is canceled and that the recruiter will reach out to me shortly.

    It’s been more than a month (5 weeks) now since I have received any emails/calls from the recruiter. I have a sent follow up emails but haven’t heard anything back yet. Wait — couple weeks ago recruiter called me and left a message asking for a call back. I called back a couple times, left messages but no reply. So it’s been 3 weeks since then but overall 5 weeks since I have had any correspondence with Intuit.

    So at this point, I take it as maybe I wasn’t the right fit for the role and MAYBE (I hope) this was an INTUITIVE APPROACH (pun intended) that Intuit took to update candidates.
    Everyone in the valley understands if there is a good fit or not but wasting a candidates time by going to such lengths is really pathetic. I really hope that the recruiting is looking at these valuable reviews and helping build the right processes to be followed.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intuit.

    Interview

    Worst experience ever! I was approached by an HR for the initial round of interview. However, that never happened and even the multiple follow-ups didn't work. No one bothered to respond. Recently, I heard that all the intern positions have been filled up and I wasn't even informed! This is THE MOST unprofessional behavior from an HR department that I've ever experienced.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intuit in March 2018.

    Interview

    Generally as follows: 1) HR screening and career discussion 2) HR internal job matching 3) Analyze a case study and submit a presentation 4) 1 hour webcam interview with a peer and hiring leader. 5) On-site 1 hour case study and presentation to a panel group.

    Overall the process showed promise. HR was well organized and a delight to work with. They were more solid than most HR organizations. It failed in execution with step 4.

    - The interviewers were 10 minutes late which they apologized for.

    - The room was a depressing plain corporate white room with a whiteboard though I am aware they do have some very state of the art, delightful modern buildings on their campus.

    - The process went off the rails when the interviewers asked for an on-the-spot strategy articulation not for the well researched and articulated case study but for a product that I use and like. They expected a clearly articulated story and what they got was ideation and thinking out loud. The product I chose was not one I'd thought about ever strategically.

    - Though the peer asked thoughtful questions, the hiring leader's body language (moving about, head down, impatience, anxiety, verbal noises, etc) was unhinged and a significant distraction. At one point went on a tangent and started discussing specific UX tactical details and user reviews, not strategy, about the mobile version of the product he downloaded. Although similarly branded what he downloaded is actually a different product for a different target user than the product I chose and not a product I had used.

    Overall part 4 of the process was a setup for failure unless you already had a product in mind and had working knowledge and a vision you could articulate clearly. My personal learning is to set expectations that I'm expressing my thoughts out loud, not a cohesive story.

    My feedback to HR is to have the interviewers stick to the case study and behavioral questions when it comes to a discussion about a specific product strategy. It's complex and requires significant thought, data, knowledge and reflection and that doesn't lend itself well to on-the-fly strategy development. My expectation was we'd talk about the case study and build and explore on that foundation with the grunt research work and initial analysis out of the way.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intuit (Plano, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I complete an in-person interview at a conference held my an affiliated organization. The recruiter then scheduled a follow-up with the Director of Product Management. This began a series of phone interviews the following week. Two were conducted by the Director, one by the Group Product Manager, and two more by other Product Managers on the team. Following the phone interviews was a short notice on-site interview. The on-site interview entailed a casepresentation/craft demonstration depending on level of experience, a lunch interview with another team Product Manager, a follow-up interview with a different team Product Manager, and a same-day decision.
