Pros

The Washington Post is a great place to work. I always feel like my contributions are valued by managers and by the organization as a whole. Big ideas are encouraged and supported. Cross-departmental

Cons

For the most part, The Post is a great place to work. It is a big company, and like other big companies, projects can occasionally get snagged up by bureaucracy.

    Product Owner Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at The Washington Post (United States)

    Interview

    First I had a recruiter call, then the manager gave me a phone screening. Post phone screening I was asked to come in for a interview. Offer received same evening.
    Interview

    There is a stimulation that is very relevant to the job description. I would say you wouldn't need to prep for this - if you are a skilled product owner you should be able to do well on it.
