    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Audible in February-2014.

    Interview

    I applied online for a Product Manager position with Audible. Within about 2 weeks I was contacted for a phone interview, which took a little over a week to set-up. The interview was with a product manager who worked with both Kindle and Audible. She had worked at Amazon in the past. I was not asked back for a second interview and my thank you emails did not receive a response/acknowledgement. All in all a good experience but I could have prepared more with regards to specific metrics for success.

    Interview Questions

    • I found that wasn't quite prepared for the specificity desired in terms of metrics for success. I had many qualitative examples of success/improvements in my past work but these were not sufficient. Because Amazon had been a past client, she had a number of questions related to my experience working with them which I found difficult to answer.   Answer Question
