    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Monotype (Boston, MA) in August 2016.

    Product Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woburn, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Monotype (Woburn, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred to Monotype by a former colleague. I had an exploratory discussion with the hiring manager several months before the position became available. The actual interview process included a phone screen with both the hiring manager and recruiter, followed by in person interviews that lasted approximately 90 minutes each. The interview had more of a "discussion" format, which I appreciated.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woburn, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Monotype (Woburn, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The entire process took four months to finalize, but everyone I met was cordial, asking the right (challenging) questions, very organized and clearly communicated the next steps involved in the interview process.

    The process started off with an HR representative reaching out to me via LinkedIn and an initial phone screen. Over the course of three weeks, I then spoke with the SVP of Product and various executives, where the dialogue varied from understanding the role and responsibilities, to discussing how as a PM, I would prioritize and strategize a roadmap and vision for the company.
    The last round of the interview involved a presentation at Woburn for a take-home task I was assigned to. I presented, in discussion form, the task to a group of executives.

    A few days later, I ended up getting a call with a verbal offer, followed by a final offer within a reasonable time frame.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared to work through exercises and discussion on prioritization, product strategy and best practices on agile.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Monotype (Noida (India)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was called in the morning for F2F round.
    Interview process began with HR round- asking questions about my professional experience, current employer and then about my family(yes each and every member of my family).
    Second round was technical round which I did pretty well - simple recursion program in java, locators in selenium etc. questions were asked.
    Then the third round was taken by Automation testing manager. No technical questions just build release process in my current company, my role there, followed by two very simple aptitude questions. The manager went for lunch after giving the second apti question. I solved the question in 2 minutes and waited for 20-25 minutes(just wait for the apti question in interview question section:-))
    After clearing the third round, the last round was taken by some Sr. Manager. Again the build-release process, my role in my current company. The automation framework we have there and couple of methods present in that framework like method to automate Rest API's post method and then asserting the result. Then I was asked questions like why I want to join this company and all. While the interview was going on in between some person came and asked the manager to join some meeting. The manager told me to wait. After that I waited for complete 1 hour. Called HR but he didn't receive the call. After that some other HR came and said that all the interaction from Noida office are done and thanked me for my patience. I asked her as to when I can expect the results. She said the feedbacks are positive and they will update the result.
    Next day, I thanked the HR for giving me opportunity and asked about the result over mail. The HR said they are talking to more candidates and will update by next week.
    After 9 days when I asked them the result again, the HR said they don't have any opening for the role and will update me whenever they have any opening.
