    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Prosper.com (San Francisco, CA) in August 2019.

    Interview

    It was a speedy process, which I appreciated. I had three rounds of interviews within a week. My interview process was as following: 1-1 with the principal product manager in-person, 1-1 with the head of product over the phone, and 4hrs of onsite with 7 people. Overall the interview process was OK. I would have preferred if they gave me a case study to present in-person. During my onsite I basically answered the same general questions to 7 people around "Tell me about yourself." The interviewers were not equipped with specific questions to ask.

    I have listed the pros and cons below.

    Pros:
    1. Recruiting team did an amazing job in following up with me at every step of the process. Before the final round, Recruiting manager even called me personally to prepare me which I have never experienced before.
    2. The head of product and the principal product manager were both encouraging. I connected with them due to shared past experiences.
    3. One engineering manager took the time to explain the structure of their matrixed Product and Engineering teams thoroughly, which I really appreciated as it was a different structure than what I have been part of previously. However, the structure felt siloed groups.

    Cons:
    1. One junior product manager during the onsite was rude and rather hostile that I had to strongly reconsider if I even wanted to work there.
    2. Most of them during the onsite hadn't looked at my resume so, I had to orient them around my complete background in every subsequent conversation. I would have appreciated a case study that I had to present, etc which would have allowed a common ground of analysis.

    Overall, I enjoyed learning about Prosper and meeting their team.

    Interview Questions

    • Too general during the onsite. No specific questions except during the first interview with the Principal Product Manager. He asked me how I would design a wallet and we walked through that process. He also asked me how I would improve the search engine for Amazon when someone queries 'football'. I enjoyed this discussion with him.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Prosper.com (San Francisco, CA) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Phone interview:
    1 or 2 rounds of technical phone interview.
    Mostly focused on computer science fundamentals.

    Hint:
    Get fundamentals strong and speak out your thought process clearly and write code that runs correctly. Don't waste your time on very difficult algorithmic questions.

    Onsite interview:
    3 rounds of technical interview,
    1 round experience, projects, and cultural fit interview.
    Lunch will be provided for you after the 2nd or 3rd round, and you will have a lunch buddy in the company who does not necessarily work in engineering.

    Hint:
    Primarily focused on system design. To be able to think about different aspect of how your designed system would work/not work, bottlenecks, weaknesses, how to mitigate, etc. would help.
    Whiteboard coding is about LC medium difficulty.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Prosper.com.

    Interview

    Misleading, and ineffective. I asked for feedback after the phone interview twice, and they told me they won't be able to let me know since it is their team policy to not disclose feedback.

    Sounds bias and discriminating.

    Their HR team & hiring manager didn't seem coordinated. Had a nice introductory chat with HR and scheduled an interview with the hiring manager. Hiring manager never called... and that was the end of the process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Prosper.com (San Francisco, CA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    The process takes around 3 weeks, including 2 rounds of design challenge. The (final one is kinda like a onsite challenge that collaborated with several teammates). They asked me to go through all the interview process (about 5 rounds), and complete 2 design challenges, the final one is a video talk which takes around 5 hrs.
    Then rejected me due to "not as experienced as they requested, cause they want a senior designer" . While at they know I am a recent graduate at the very beginning. It's very unprofessional and wasting time for all the people.
