    Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WebMD Health.

    Interview

    Hiring manager was almost 10 minutes late - no apology - her tone was rude as if I kept her waiting. No response to my follow up email. I would say if this is how you treat people at an interview its indicative of a miserable culture after you arrive

I was selected for face to face round for 3 hours interview in New York. Interview went good but I was told by HR that they couldn't proceed further as they couldn't take anyone since I was on OPT EAD.

    Strategy Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at WebMD Health.

    Interview

    - Several rounds of interviews with several weeks in between
    - Interviews canceled and rescheduled at the last minute
    - Very unprofessional recruiters (to the extent of being rude)
    I would advise you to look at their openings and see how long they have been open. Some were open for more than a year, and they are probably bringing you in to get information rather than fill the position

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at WebMD Health (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received a call for a phone interview that lasted about 20-40 minutes, and it was easy. Received an email 2 or 3 weeks later requesting an in-person meeting. I went to their office downtown and had two separate 1 hour+ interview sessions in a board room with groups of developers. They asked questions incessantly and it was a full-blown grilling, more or less. I was completely exhausted after having to explain all of this different convoluted experience as a technologist. They grilled me with specific commands I'd use down to the single character and did the whole shtick of asking you a question, then telling you you're right, but really wrong because there's a better way to do it (Surprise! It's their way). Typical stuff. Afterwards there was an "informal" water cooler meeting with HR guy, where I was basically about to pass out. He said, "You were in there for a while!" and asked me "how it went." I should've known it wasn't going to work out and it didn't, although one of the teams I got along very well with. The other team hammered me into the ground with a lack of familiarity on very specific parts of their stack and their personal experience. I never received an offer and I never even received a reply via email afterwards, kind of lame. I could sense the dynamic was a little bit weird in the more technical of the group interviews, and they employees seemed to not really click with each other that well. Some team members just sort of sat there in silence during the meeting, which is a sign they are miserable. Still, the office was really cool and I wanted the job. Yet, no offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at WebMD Health (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I was working with a recruiter who set up my interview with WebMD/Medscape. Initially there was a phone screen with the hiring manager to go over my background and skill set. The questions asked were not really out of the ordinary - pretty standard. After this, I was asked to come in for an in-person interview a few days later and met with two members of their staff. Once again, not overly difficult. They were pretty straight forward and not looking to throw in trick questions or crazy "what if" scenarios. All in all, it was a very positive experience. Unfortunately, my recruiter advised that while I was the candidate they were looking to hire, the position had been cancelled due to budget concerns. Wish they knew that before deciding to go through the interview process! Oh well.

    Director Strategic Accounts Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at WebMD Health.

    Interview

    Interviewed initially through an external recruiter. After that had good interviews with the SVP and two VPs. The In-House recruiter called my references and then I received a verbal offer. Approximately one week later the offer was rescinded and I was given no reason. My references were excellent so I'm unclear as to why the sudden disinterest. Horribly unprofessional and a waste of time and valuable references. Advice: Get your offer in writing prior to providing references. Although they can still pull it it shows that they are more invested.
