    ECommerce Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brisbane, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at bebe stores (Brisbane, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Phone Interview: Asked me if I had questions, so I posted a question related to the job as it is a hybrid of product and project manager role. There were questions about my familiarity with certain software products that were listed as 'nice to have' (Keynote Scripting and Monitoring,Adobe Scene 7,Adobe Site catalyst/Omniture,recommendation engines,HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AJAX). I stated that I had managed programs with impacts to the the Site Catalyst for reporting aspects, but didn't work directly with these tools, however eager to learn & are confident that I can pick up given my Software engineering background.

    Onsite: Interviewer was 10 minutes late. Same interviewer (very high executive) pulled the MS SQL Server code on the screen and asked if I have used the tool for my work as it is needed. My response was no, but I could learn it if required for my job. The next question was how to trouble shoot when an image is missing on the website, what is that due to, what does it translate to? The interviewer asked questions similar to the list during the phone interview and related to the tools listed as nice to have for the job. I explained that I don't know the details, but I had resources who did the configuration and changes to these tools to support the requirements for the project. He explained that he wanted PM who knows them now.

    I had a 3 month gab between two recent jobs, he asked if I was fired, so I explained the reason for the gab.

    I think it was no good use of my time and the executive's time to arrange face to face interview were a couple detailed questions related to MS SQL Server & Site catalyst could have been asked during the phone interview and determine it was not a good match. I think the list of the nice to have should be moved to the must have section of the job description. I was scheduled in the next hour to interview with the CIO, but was told he became busy!!

    All applications are delivered by third party vendors!!

    ECommerce Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brisbane, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at bebe stores (Brisbane, CA).

    Interview

    Phone: Asked me about my familiarity with certain software products that were listed as 'nice to have'. I wasn't familiar with them but told them I was eager to learn.

    Onsite: Same interviewer asked the exact same questions and was critical when I explained again that I was not familiar with the software but was eager to learn.

    Don't understand why they brought me in if they already determined I didn't have the required skills. Overall the experience felt demeaning and the company culture had an unfriendly vibe.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked exact same questions as with phone screen and almost nothing else. Even though I had 80% of the experience listed in the job description there were some specific products at the end that I had not used but the interview focused on knowing these.   Answer Question
