  1. Associate Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Petco (San Diego, CA)

    Interview

    1. Phone screen with recruiter
    2. 30-min call with HM. Basic product questions, and a "walk me through" your past experiences.

    Both recruiter and HM were extremely personable and easy to talk to; very passionate about their work.

    The process started off strong, but where they fell short is the lack of recruitment's follow up regarding next steps and candidacy. Complete radio silence, even after a follow up email.
