    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at optionsXpress (Chicago, IL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Very informal, asked by other employees about myself and previous experience. Was brought multiple time to meet with different people but did not seem organized with the exception of one director that had a set of questions prepared, some were technical and others about prioritization and similar topics. At the start and end met with an HR representative that gave me the summary of benefits.
