Senior Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Splunk (Seattle, WA) in March 2016.

Interview

Quick call/email with the recruiter that expressed interest in me after I submitted a resume online a week earlier. Then a call with the hiring manager. That set up an afternoon of interviews (3) at their office in Seattle. The main reason I'm writing this review and why I would give it negative marks is I feel they wasted my time. The first "interview" with the hiring manager, was 90% of him talking. Should have listened to my gut, but the role sounded interesting and the company is doing some cool things. I then went into their offices and interviewed really well with 2-3 folks. Then met in-person with the hiring manager. Still a lot of talking from him, but finally got around to asking some questions. It became clear I wasn't the right fit for what he was looking for. Could have saved everyone a lot of time if he would have focused more on that first call. I was frustrated with the experience. 6 weeks from applying to the rejection letter, and a fair amount of time in between with correspondence, company research, taking time off, personnel research (LinkedIn), and thank you notes. Bottom line, I invested valuable time in something that could have been spent more productive elsewhere, as could the team that I interview with, had the manager focused upfront on the needs he had versus his self aggrandizement.

Interview Questions

  • It was a year ago, so I'm not recalling specific questions. Pretty standard stuff, "tell me about a time when", "explain how you work with developers/engineers", "share a bit about a project you are proud of"   1 Answer

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Splunk (San Francisco, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The overall process was straight forward. I had two phone interviews -- one with a Splunk recruiter and another with the hiring manager. Both conversations went well, so I was invited on site for an interview. I met with several people including an architect, designer, product manager and project manager. The team were all very professional and I thought it went well. But a few days later, the recruiter called to tell me that they decided to go with another candidate. Win some, lose some. But overall it was a positive experience.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were all relatively straight forward. There were no whiteboard challenges or Google-like puzzles. The interviews felt more conversational than anything.   1 Answer
