Product Manager Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

Interview

Several Phone calls, the recruiter scheduled three calls and never called. I finally had a 5 minute conversation that resulted in an interview. Arrived early at the interview site and the interviewer was never told I was there. Waited 30 minutes before they showed up. They suggested I have a follow-up conversation with matrix manager, who never bothered to return my call.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    Had 1:1 interviews with the group I was supposed to work with if I got the job. I went through about 4 rounds, 2 rounds with colleagues, 1 round with the hiriing manager, and ending with the Managing Director of the group. After the final round, I had to follow up with the hiring manager after I hadn't heard back in 3 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • All standard interview and behavioral questions
      Ex: What is your greatest strength, how would you contribute to the team, etc   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    HR are bullies when you try to negotiate especially if you are not exec mgmt and a female. I did my research on competitive salaries and the HR person i negotiated with lied to me. Better to negotiate with your hiring manager and skip HR

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Boston, MA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    You must have some technical understanding. That's probably more critical than having a financial background. Position yourself as someone with User Experience (UX) credentials. That is much needed at the organization. Interview is 2 rounds at the minimum. The company is so large, it's hard to know who you would interview with. Most people are friendly. Be prepared to discuss your experience with PROJECT Management as well. Knowledge of Microsoft Project a big plus for this role.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in March 2009.

    Interview

    This was an internal interview for a position on a new strategic project. I already had experience with the hiring manager, so that was pretty straight forward. I then had to meet with the VP but that was just a formality because I'd already gotten sign-off from the hiring manager. Both interviews were more casual chats, talking about my experiences with the company and both had knowledge of people I had worked with in the past, so that made the interviewing process a lot easier. I didn't feel like a complete stranger during the interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in March 2009.

    Interview

    Applied online and had a phone interview with a recruiter. This also served to provide me with more information about the position, hiring manager and the group. After this initial screen, I met with the hiring manager (30-40 minutes) and a couple development managers (20-30 minutes) on my first visit to the company. Questions focused on my work experience and specific accomplishments mentioned in my resume. A number of questions were designed to gauge fit with the team and the overall attitude/personality. I was given information on competency areas that they were looking for for the position. On my second visit I met with the SVP and head of the group (20-30 minutes). A few industry related technical and domain questions in addition to questions regarding what my expectations were with respect to work profile, team etc.

    Overall I was impressed with the professionalism with which the interview process was handled though the start to end process was a little drawn out going slightly over a month.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you looking for a change?   Answer Question
    • I was asked to describe in detail a particular experience mentioned in my resume.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate as the offer was inline with my expectations that I had mentioned to the recruiter in the initial phone screen.
