Manager product development interview questions shared by candidates
Think of the worst boss you ever had. (pause while I thought about it and planned what I would say about her...) (then, surprise follow-up!) What would s/he say about you?
I said that she would speak very highly of me. She wasn't the worst boss because she was a horrible person or because of any conflict between us - she just never should have been a manager. I did a great job for her and she appreciated and acknowledged it.
None really, but be prepared to answer the following: 1. Why do you want to work for F5? **This question WILL be asked** 2. What are your strengths/weaknesses? 3. Give me an overview of your last job. 4. Answer questions specific to your resume 5. Scale of 1-10, how familiar are you with system tools - Microsoft office, Agile or SQL? 6. Why did you leave the last company? 7. Explain any time gaps in resume 8. What are some of your leadership experiences? 9. Describe an accomplishment you are most proud of. 10. Do you have any questions - AND OF COURSE YOU DO. ;)
Overall, they didn't really ask very difficult interview questions. The one question which they seemed intent on was "What characteristics make for a great boss or supervisor?".
