Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sanofi (Boston, MA).

Interview

Good interviews with the team. However HR was difficult to work with and pushy, demanding salary history both before and after the on-site. HR called after the onsite saying it went well and they were preparing an offer, but again demanded salary history. When provided with a very narrow salary history range, HR continued to push for exact numbers. After ~1 week of no followup, HR asked for a manager reference from current employer. I explained asking for a reference from a manager at current employer would not be prudent without an offer in hand, as the risk was too high, but could provide a peer reference. After ~1wk of no follow up HR said they decided not to proceed with an offer because "you were not forthright with information" regarding salary.

Asking salary history is now illegal in MA.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paris (France)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sanofi (Paris (France)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Entretien OK - manager assez stressée et stressante. Vu deux fois et deux fois en retard d’au moins 15/20 minutes.
    Ensuite pas de retour. Le RH me rappelle en me demandant si c’est toujours OK pour moi et ensuite plus rien. Vraiment bizarre. Et surtout très malpoli.
    Par ailleurs, quand je vois les commentaires je ne regrette pas. On pressurise bien les gens pour rien en plus.
