Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at LinkedIn in September 2017.

Interview

Applied online. Contacted by a recruiter > phone screen > phone interview with hiring manager. The recruiter was top notch. The hiring manager ran through questions very quickly with little follow up. Questions did not seem to align with the JD's required skills.

    Interview

    Basic phone screening with recruiter. The recruiter wasn't too familiar about what my responsibilities would be and asked that I save my questions for the next round. The turnaround time was quick.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Mountain View, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Whole process took over two months. Two phone interviews and one on-site interview with three PMs. Interview questions were relevant and about daily challenges that the PMs tackle. It was a pleasant experience overall. If I compare this experience to the Google PM interview I had a month prior to the LI interview, I have to say that LI PMs were way more grounded and their approach was way more friendly.

    Very well organized and thought out day of events at LinkedIn. Interviews themselves were mixed: some difficult, some easy. The analytical interview was most challenging. Be ready to talk in depth about any ideas you have.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    Applied for the position through their website. Received an email from one of their recruiters. The recruiter seemed really friendly and provided some background into the position. Went through some standard questions regarding my background and said she would pass my info to the hiring manager to schedule another phone screen. Maybe I misunderstood the recruiter but it felt like they would followup with me to schedule next interview but I never heard from them. I sent the recruiter an email to the recruiter a couple of weeks later following up on status. She said she would check with hiring manager and get back to me. Never heard anything since and never received a rejection email. As such, not a good experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LinkedIn.

    Interview

    Current MBA student, applied to PM New Grad position. Had attended the LinkedIn PM tour earlier in the summer for MBA students in PM roles in the Bay Area.

    Had an initial call with HR after which a "technical interview" was scheduled with a PM. The technical interview had nothing technical about it, just 4 questions - about myself, my internship projects, why PM-role/why LinkedIn, and whether I'd been involved in a product launch. A 45 minute interview that ended in less than 25 minutes. A few days later I heard back saying they decided not to move ahead with my candidacy.

    I'm not sure on what basis the decision was made (because nothing was asked that wasn't already on my resume). I spent a week researching the company inside out, had some great (in my view) suggestions and ideas but the interview seemed like a formality to reject my candidacy. Feel let down by the company and the process.
