    Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Actix in October 2013.

    Interview

    The telephone interview (arranged via an agency) was regarding a Product Management role.
    The technical questions actually asked - by 2 existing Product Managers - were at the level of a graduate engineer, purely memory related rather than technology knowledge related or regarding the needed experience and approach to skills most needed for such a role.
    The exact same role was re-posted online in 1-2 days later (by the same agency) with only a title change - as a Technology Architect role, clearly inconsistent and irrelevant.

    Interview Questions

    • Obsession with specific contents of L3 protocol messages (easily found in known specs) - little to do with a Product Management role.   Answer Question
