    Product Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TE Connectivity in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who told me about a role and asked if I were interested in talking. I agreed and we made arrangements the next day. About 45 minutes into the interview the recruiter drops a little fact on me the position is in Portland, Oregon. I am on the east coast. Would I be interested in relocating? I said, I don't know anything about Portland so I can't answer that question right now but that I am interested in learning more. Recruiter then says "before we go any further" what are your salary requirements!" At this point, I was mad. This recruiter is so inexperience and unprofessional. I told recruiter 2 minutes ago I just learned the position is on the other side of the country. I have no idea of cost of living. So recruiter says, if the position were in your city what would you require? So, I gave recruiter a range. Recruiter immediately said "No! that is way more than what we budgeted." And I said, but that salary is in my city. IDK what it relates to in Portland. Recruiter then proceeds to tell me Portland is far more expensive than my city. Recruiter then criticizes me for not having manufacturing experience and demands to know why. I'm thinking YOU CALLED ME! You should have seen that on my online profile. Before ending the call, I asked recruiter what is the budget and recruiter tells me. After I hung up I looked online the comparison to my city and Portland and as expected my city has a much higher cost of living index. The range I gave this extremely inexperience, rude recruiter was within the budget.

    Companies need to realize interviewing is a two-way street and this recruiter is doing more harm than good in my humble opinion.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TE Connectivity in December 2015.

    Interview

    The HR person was really nice, but the hiring manager made me feel unwelcome. The manager created a very intense environment and it seemed like he doesn't want to work with other people.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TE Connectivity in December 2015.

    Interview

    For some reason I did not have a round with anyone from HR. I directly had a phone call with 2 scientists in the department I applied to. It was a casual conversation mainly about the my research and making them understand what I was doing and why it was important. There were a few questions about skill sets and techniques, but mostly whether you knew something or not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TE Connectivity (Harrisburg, PA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    TE Connectivity came to my school's career fair. They had a info session after the career fair where I was invited for a first round interview the next day. The interview was the CFA of its Transportation branch. Less than a week later I was asked to pick a day to fly to Harrisburg the next week. There I met with the Senior Manager and two other managers for an hour each. All resume level and basic behavioral questions. Very laid back interview. Got an offer the week after that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at TE Connectivity.

    Interview

    Incredibly time-consuming. I counted over 15 hours not including the travel time for 3 separate trips of out of town. Two of those were for videoconferencing sessions. I only spoke with the hiring manager for one hour during this time, over video conference, and no time 1:1. All of the interviewers spent at least 50% of their time covering the same material on background, reasons I would leave my current employer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at TE Connectivity in July 2015.

    Interview

    First the regular telephone interview from HR asking the same questions about salary expectations, describing the job and if that is actually I see myself doing the job in the long run, etc. Then I met with the person that was previously the head of the department and the interview went great. He described the position and ask me questions relating my experiences to the job requirements. It landed me a third interview with the other 2 production supervisors and finally who would be my boss. The interview with my peers was great, I felt we got along and they seem eager to work with me. The interview with the head of the department went really well but from the get go he did not seem that interested. I answer all his questions with relevant work experience, I felt confident and was relaxed but his mind seem in another place. I asked if there was any weakness in my qualifications and he said there weren't and that I looked like a solid candidate. Then I did no hear from them in 2 weeks and got an standard e-mail that they moved on. I tried to get some feed back but there was none, I also never got responses from the thank you e-mails after the interview. Very disappointed.
