    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Risk Management Solutions (Newark, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely efficient, and reflected very well upon the company; although there were several rounds, I never felt like I was waiting around for a decision. Had brief in-person meetings with five people, and two phone interviews afterwards including one with the CTO. Some were casual chats, others were more technically challenging conversations. Be ready for any question and all types of personalities.

    Model Product Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Risk Management Solutions (Newark, CA).

    Interview

    I responded to a job posting by directly contacting the group supervisor. I had a 40 minute phone interview within a few days, which went well. I was then invited to the Newark office for an all day interview with ~9 people. I think all interviews went well. I also gave a presentation, but I was on a severe time crunch; I was told a 45 minute talk and it was 25. I should have stuck to more basics. The job position wasn't the right fit for me and they were looking for someone who could commit sooner. All in all, good interview process, but the recruiting staff seemed a bit disorganized.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Risk Management Solutions (Newark, CA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Recruiter was great to work with. He really worked hard to get results and kept me in the loop the entire time. Couldn't be happier.
    Had 3 phone-screens with various managers including the HM.
    Got invited for an onsite which went very smoothly. I was out of town so they paid for hotel, taxi and airfare.
    Got an immediate offer on which we negotiated to address my various concerns.
    It all worked out great in the end!

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Risk Management Solutions (Newark, CA) in March 2008.

    Interview

    They will tell you about one of many problems they are facing. You tell them that you have the exact skills to fix it. When you start it will seem like and easy thing to fix, until you realize that senior management stands in the way of fixing it.

    Negotiation

    easy, they are not afraid of paying large salaries, bonuses and options. They do not have a good reputation in the valley, and compete against 1,000s of tech firms. The only reason to work their is to draw a big salary and not work too hard.
