Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Nokia in January 2014.

Interview

Initial Phone Screen: 2 weeks after application submitted
Phone Interview with would-be supervisor
Onsite Interview: with four senior managers

Follow-up: None. No email, phone call, or contact after in-person interview. No reimbursement for expenses incurred to travel and stay for onsite interview ($400+).

Interview Questions

  • Unexpected Dialogue: Despite having gone through two phone screenings where I was told that my qualifications were extremely unique and very well-suited to the position, one of the senior managers interviewing me onsite used the interview time to tell me that I was not qualified for the position and accused me of lying on my resume. Additionally, he argued with me over each answer I gave to a question, even if the question/answer was opinion-based. (Example: Name a product you love and an improvement you'd make right away. When I answered, I was told that my "improvement" was wrong even though the interviewer had not heard of the product in my example.)

    Unexpected Administrative Behavior: When the onsite interview was set-up, I was told that I'd be required to pay for my travel expenses and hotel up-front and that during my onsite interview, I'd be given reimbursement forms to fill-out and submit.
         *No forms were issued during my interview, so I had to follow-up with an email request.
         *I submitted the forms to the HR Assistant who set-up the onsite interview.
         *When I did not hear back from the HR Assistant or receive a reimbursement check after several weeks, I emailed to check on the status. Email bounced back, "user unknown".
         *When I emailed the HR Lead to check on the reimbursement status after email bounce-back, I received no response.
         *I still have not received a reimbursement check (over 2 months since onsite interview).   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nokia (Berlin (Germany)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    A full day of interviews with no real coordination between interviewers. I was asked the same questions 3 or 4 times. It seemed quite pointless and I didn't think wasting the time of all these employees was necessary. This could have easily been just with one at most two people who would work directly with me rather than the six people I met with.
