    Associate Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Quidel (San Diego, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This was a fairly straight forward on-site interview with the product manager and HR person. The interview felt like more like a conversation. There were no standard interview questions used. It was not until later that the HR coordinator mentioned that they were considering an internal candidate. At that point, the interview seemed like more of a formality on their end.
