    Product Operations Manager, Bizrate Insights Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Monica, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Shopzilla (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    Applied directly to the company via a job board, heard back from a recruiter two weeks later, had one intro call with recruiter that reviewed my resume and the role. He then scheduled a call with my would-be manager that week.

    The on-site interview was among the worst interviewing experiences I've ever had....
    - The first interviewer was the group manager. She was extremely cold and seemed generally unhappy with life. Never once did she try to sell the role or the company.
    - Next came two sales women who asked fluff questions like "how do you deal with conflict". Again, no joy.
    - Third was a surprise test on a laptop, rules of test: you have 45 minutes, we won't tell you how many questions, you can google whatever you want but we don't suggest it. Despite the fact that I told them I'm not a programmer and the role didn't require such skills, about 25% of the questions consisted of coding questions.
    - Fourth came someone who I thought would be a peer, only later to find out that she would be my reportee, which explained why she was so nice at the time.
    - Last came the original woman I phone-interviewed with, who was probably the most mellow.

    It's now been two weeks and the recruiter hasn't even bothered to tell me I've been dinged. Super unprofessional.

    Overall I'd say don't waste your time.
