Product Manager Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (New York, NY) in February 2015.

Interview

Met a recruiter at the career fair in the Fall through a friend who was a previous Software Engineering intern. The recruiter contacted me in the Spring asking to interview. It was a while before we were able to set this up. The interview with the HR rep were basic questions about my background, work experience, previous projects. Then an interview with the coordinator of the PM internship program (which was very small, I think 2 total PM interns). I then had another interview with another PM, which was similar, just a different perspective. Ultimately was too late in the process, they had already hired interns.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at RetailMeNot.

    Interview

    I submitted my application and approximately (2) weeks later I was contacted by a recruiter. They scheduled a phone interview within (1) week and a follow up interview within less than (2) days. The
    interview was quite conversational and felt like a great fit. Unfortunately, schedules did not align and we were unable to arrange travel to meet the team.

    Product Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Austin, TX) in July 2012.

    Interview

    First off, They are looking for people who are self-starters, highly entrepreneurial, have great business sense, and good in technology.

    It all started by applying to the website, within 24 hours they contacted me via email and set-up a phone interview with the recruiter. It was basically going over my history. I had a good conversation with the recruiter, and they set-up a phone interview with a Product Manager at the company for a few days later.

    That phone interview was basically a repeat, discussing my history and why I was interested in Product management. After that phone interview, they set-up an onsite interview (I live in Austin) for about a week later. The on-site interview was with 5 people, a developer, product manager, business dev, Director of Product and Senior Director of Product.

    In all honesty, the interviews didn't seem hard. It was basically a conversation of what they did, and what I have done. I came in well prepared knowing everything about the company, it's strategy, products, and even did background research on the people who would be interviewing me. I had about two pages of questions for each person interviewing me. I was also interviewing them. :-)

    I honestly enjoyed the conversations, and perhaps this was one of the reasons I didn't get hired. I was so relaxed that we had great conversations that got a bit side-tracked on technology and innovation. See my post-moratum for details on that.

    I left the interviews pretty confident.

    The next morning I got an email from the recruiter saying thanks for my time, but I they decided not to go with me.

    Interview Questions

    • Honestly, the development interview was probably the hardest because I hadn't prepared for it. I come from a deep technical background, but wasn't in that mind-set during the interview, so took me some seconds to find the answers. They were actually very basic questions, that I made harder than they really were. I got the correct answers, and in a follow-up post-moratum interview with the Developer, he said that wasn't a problem, I passed the technical interview.

      There were questions on how to improve the products and coming up with new products in their market. Honestly that's not hard if you ever used their products and spent 5 min on their site. It's full of opportunities to improve. They have bought many different coupon sites, so integration and innovation has a lot of room to improve.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Austin, TX) in July 2018.

    Interview

    My first contact was through a recruiter. I worked with her previously so she was already familiar with my background. My next interview was with the VP of Product Management. The tone was very relaxed and flowed like a good conversation. Even though it was scheduled late in the day there was good energy all the way to the end. The next phase was an in-person interview at the office. This lasted all day and involved several people who rotated every 45 minutes. Retail Me Not provided lunch which facilitated interviews going the entire time. It sounds hectic, but Retail Me Not really puts a lot of effort into making it a relaxed experience. While they snuck in several "tell me about a time" style of question, the overall feeling was very conversational. Most importantly, each person took the time to make sure that I was able to ask any questions that I had. There were some tricky questions in there, but more than just technical ability they wanted to verify how well you would fit into the company's culture. That part really stands out about the process.
