    Product Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen (Detroit, MI) in May 2019.

    Interview

    On three occasions I have had interviews with Volkswagen. The 1st time I interviewed here, it took two weeks to schedule a phone interview. The interview went well and I waited for feedback. Two weeks later I was sent a rejection notice from the recruiter. The 2nd time I interviewed, it took a few weeks to find out if they were still interested. We had the interview but they ghosted me. The 3rd time was recent, same manager from the first time but for a different role. Similar to our first interaction we had a phone interview and that went well. The hiring manager gave me a 3-day assignment. The recruiter said the assignment was the second round interview. I completed the assignment in 3-days and waited to hear back. One week later and there was silence. After sending an email, I was told they would follow up with the manager. I was notified that the manager took an extended vacation. One week later, the hiring manager said they would give feedback in a few days. Needless to say, the hiring manager never kept their word. Someone eventually followed up but again, that was another week. Their interview process is very unprofessional. They'll exploit you for free labor too.
    Lesson learned.
