    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Spireon (Irvine, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    If you want to get hired quickly...this is not the place for you. I will provide you a timeline for the horrible process I went through. Bottom line-it took Spireon 3 months to get to a NO answer after 3 on site visits and 7 interview.
    7/31-apply for job via Linkedin
    8/9-I hear back and recruiter says that hiring director would like to talk to me
    8/11-speak with hiring director over phone for roughly 30 minutes, positive interview in my opinion
    8/16-get notified that interview was positive and they want me onsite
    8/21-Interview for 1 hour with the hiring director-positive interview in my opinion
    8/24-get notified that interview was positive and they want me onsite again to interview with 4 different people over 3 hours
    8/29-go onsite and interview with another sr product manager, CPO, CMO, software engineering manager, and HR/recruiter. I thought all interviews went well.
    9/1- I get an email to provide 2 references. Replied back same day with 2 references.
    9/6, 9/11-I send email to check on reference check status.
    9/12-get email back that reference checks haven't been completed. Recruiter says they should be able to close on this by 9/25.
    9/25-I get an email from technical recruiter saying that the last step is meeting with the CTO.
    9/27-meet with CTO and get the feeling CTO is looking for a HW sr product manager.
    9/29-send email to see if there is any final decision and feedback
    10/11-get email back saying process is going slowly and that I'm 1 of final 2 candidates. Recruiter calls me and explains that there was a referred candidate from within the telematics industry that is all of a sudden in the top 2 running.
    10/24-send an email for updated status.
    10/26-rejection email

    I am putting this up here because no candidate should go through what I went through. The cherry on top is that the recruiter tells me in the rejection email to add her on LinkedIn and to this day she has not accepted by connect request.

    I’m sorry to hear you had a frustrating interview experience with us. The recruiting process at Spireon (and at most companies) varies according to the type of position and the number of candidates... More

    Difficult Interview

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Spireon in May 2017.

    Mix of Phone, video and in person interviews. Quick process and decision. Difficult interviews but that was expected for the position level. They worked around my schedule and the fact that I was currently employed while interviewing.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Spireon.

    Interview

    The process started with a phone screen with the CEO himself. I found him to be quite insightful with a clear strategy for winning. In the span of 30 minutes, I understood the position, challenges, and company direction. I left the conversation with new insight on assessing senior leaders.

    The in-person interview happened a few weeks later. It was a standard round robin 1:1 with other senior leaders, architects, and a couple of rock star software engineers. The latter was quite refreshing.

    A couple of weeks later I had one more round with the private equity firm. This was a 2:1 panel style interview. I found this round to be enlightening as the interviewers were direct, frank about the challenges. I also respected the interviewers digging into my experience and challenging my decisions, management style, and approaches.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected -- Several times I was asked how did I measure progress or success.   Answer Question
