There's a lot of Product Development Engineer experts who've worked at Sandisk, who provide this sort of practice through mock interviews. There's a whole list of them curated on Prepfully. prepfully.com/practice-interviews Less

As a PO you met with two VPs who want their Biopham compliance documents in digital format. Describe how you would go about this in 10 minutes

2 Answers

I would ask them what exactly do they envision being able to do when this work is delivered. This is my way crafting acceptance criteria and success factors. I would ask why the current way is not working, why the change now? If the ask seemed like a ton of effort, I would ask if the team could produce part of this request, what would be the most critical piece in order for the digital format to be useful. I would just listen for the messages not said directly suchas, if they really know what they want and why. Less

Since the VPs want a digital version of their compliance documents, it is implied they have physical versions. I'd ask for a hard copy of the compliance document. Once I have a version in hand, I'd ask them what parts of the document tend to be the same doc-to-doc, and which parts change or require user input. Less

I have answered most of the question with accuracy.

Exact same thing happened with me too. They say the company builds products that makes hiring process easier but the management itself do not know how to handle job applicants and acts like smart deceivers. I had 3 interviews and all of the interviewers said they were impressed. In the end after they asked me to send all of the documents to release the offer letter and didn't contact me again. I was badly ghosted and didn't get any response till now from the company even though I was bugging them relentlessly. All of this is a complete waste of time for applicants and leaves us vexed with a really bad opinion about the company. Less
