    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at New Relic (San Francisco, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    For the interview process on the marketing end, I initially met with my VP, head of competitive, and those who would be my peers. the interviews went smoothly, and I genuinely felt that everyone cared about interacting and gathering my feedback...I felt welcome.

    They wanted to my approach to product marketing, specifically around moving products through a go-to-market strategy.

    After initial interviews with marketing, I moved on to speak with members of their product teams. I believe they wanted to understand how well I would work alongside my peers within their product division.

    In all, their interview process ran smoothly, with a rep from recruiting guiding all interactions and next steps.

    The people at New Relic are serious about making great products for their very technical DevOps audience, but not so serious that they avoid talking about the human element (which matters equally to them).

    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New Relic (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Very fair, traditional interview process. No hypothetical or trick questions. Initial screen was with a recruiter, then I met with a hiring manager and 3 peers. Everyone was very friendly and positive. All of the discussions were around my prior experience, what I knew about the space, competition, etc. Final step was a simulated case study/presentation, for which I had as much time to prepare as I needed.

    HR Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New Relic (Portland, OR) in May 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was comprehensive. I got to speak with the hiring manager multiple times and multiple people that the role interacts with. I felt like I had a great opportunity to share my background with everyone on the interview slate and I walked away with a comprehensive understanding of the organization and the role. I'm two weeks into the role now and my experience thus far is very much aligned with what I learned in the interview process. My experience so far has actually exceeded expectations!

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at New Relic (Portland, OR) in April 2018.

    Interview

    NR recently started a new recruiting behavior called "bundling" presumably to build great cultural gains. The process for me included four interviews totaling about 4 hours before being culled for unknown reason(s).
    1st: 30 min telephone interview with HR; (very interactive)
    2nd: 45 video meeting with "hiring" director; (great)
    3rd: 60 minute (2nd) telephone conversation with "hiring" director; (awesome)
    4th: 30 minute video meeting with a pooling director colleague.
    Final: Robo-email received dismissing me as a candidate citing generic reasons and platitudes which job seekers are all too familiar with. Presumably, NR's bandwidth does not allow for providing once-valued candidates the courtesy of their shortcomings.
    Nevertheless, I found the experience rewarding and nearly everyone with whom I spoke to be very sincere and caring people. I believe the video interviews are not part of any AI based assessment, such as from Hirevue, now so often a common approach in the high-tech sector.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at New Relic (Portland, OR) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview. The call only lasted 20 minutes. She did not ask any relevant work-related questions. She merely focused on the product that my last employer made (no relation to this job) and why I had a gap on my resume SIX years ago. She did not take time to describe the company, job, or allow me to ask any of my prepared questions. This person and interview did not reflect your core value of authenticity because there was a lot of bias and judging going on! Recruiters need to do better.

    Interview Questions

    • What product did your last company make?
      Why did you leave your last job? Of, you left without having another job?
      So, you really had a 1-year employment gap six years ago? It took you that long to find a job?   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at New Relic in April 2018.

    Interview

    I was referred to New Relic by a current employee and received a phone call from recruitment a few days later. They gave some additional insight on the company and values and then scheduled phone interviews with technical resources and managers. Overall it was pretty casual if you are already familiar with the APM industry.

    Growth Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New Relic (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Personable rotation of potential future team members and deep insights. I had an initial PR interview, was forwarded to an interview with my direct manager, and ended a week or two later with a rotational interview between the 4-person team I'd be joining with 30 min segments per person totaling a 2 hour interview. I got word of my acceptance within a week after.

    New Relic employees want to know that you'd be excited to work with them as much as they'd be excited to work with you. And they communicate all of that. I found that you are at total freedom to ask questions regarding work life, culture, etc. In fact they encourage it. New Relic is maturing fast, but they continue to maintain that family-feel both before, during, and after the interview process. Ask questions and get a sense of whether you'd enjoy working in the New Relic atmosphere, and you will be set up to succeed in whichever position you may end up in.
