    Associate Product Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Monster Worldwide (Weston, MA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, then was contacted by a recruiter a few days later. Phone screen with the recruiter focused on my background and how it related to the job opening. Oddly, I had no opportunity to ask any questions.

    A phone screen with the hiring manager was then set up for a few days later. This interview was more like a conversation - the manager went over the company and the role and asked a few questions, and I was able to ask some questions as well.

    I thought the interview went well, but apparently I was wrong since I didn't move forward in the process. I had to contact the recruiter a few weeks after the interview with the hiring manager to learn that I was rejected.

    Software QA Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Monster Worldwide (Weston, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    There was 2 phone interviews initially. After that I was called for an onsite interview. The interview went well. The next day, HR called me and said that I was selected for that position. As an graduating student, I was very excited that I got an offer in one of the best companies. My background verification also was in process. But later, after a week when I asked them to send me the offer letter, the HR called me said in plain voice that they can not offer me this position as they did not have the budget. I was initially shocked for a moment to hear this as there was no reason I could be rejected after HR called me and told that I was selected. I only wanted to let them know that if they did not have the budget, they should have decided that earlier before opening that position or at least before informing me that I was selected. After all the happiness that was there for a week, they just took it away in 1 minute. I also rejected an offer which I had since they clearly told me that I was selected and they will send me an offer letter. But finally I was emotionally hurt and that left me dejected. I know it happens sometimes but not never seen a company of such stature to decline an offer after informing me that I was selected and when my background verification was in progress.

    Product Management Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Monster Worldwide.

    Interview

    Had a call with a Talent Acquisition Specialist, it went well. Was asked my availability for the next week to come in. Came in and had an in person interview with the person I would be working under. Learned about the role, and was asked questions about my past in projects.

    The real test of the interview was to see where I took the interview, and the quality of the questions I asked. Those questions were what ended up being most helpful.

    After the interview, I asked to speak with the Talent Acquisition specialist from before. When the hiring manager went to find her, the HM told the TA to offer me the position.

    On Thursday I did the phone interview, and by the next Wednesday, I got the position.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tempe, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Monster Worldwide (Tempe, AZ).

    Interview

    Not your normal interview process. They focus a lot more on the drive of the candidate than actual previous skill sets. Lot of questions regarding personal life and interests besides work. They're not looking for drones that look good on paper. Substance and character is what they were looking for.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maynard, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Monster Worldwide (Maynard, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email completely out of the blue -- I hadn't applied for their listing, nor even was aware of the opening. Their HR employee found me on LinkedIn and sent me InMail saying they thought I was a good match for the opening. After a lengthy phone call interview with the HR employee, a call was arranged with the hiring manager. The disappointing part came primarily from the fact that the HR person then emailed me to say the call was for a different position that I was not qualified for leaving me with the impression that he did not understand my role at all.

Questions ranged from personal habits, to values, to design process and execution of a product plan. Covered vision, design, execution, and optimization. All of the interviewers were very open to answering my questions. I was notified 5 business days later that I was going to receive a formal offer via my email within the week. I accepted.
