  1. Product Manager Interview

    Interview

    Very strange process. Started off with an awkward scheduled 15-min recruiter Zoom call in which the recruiter kept her video off the entire time and proceeded to spend 30 minutes straight talking about how in love she was with the company. By the end, I had only a few minutes to say my first and final words before I had to go as this was running way over time. I ended that call with knowing essentially nothing about the role, hadn’t had a chance to go over my background, and learned that the expected salary was EXTREMELY under market rate.

    Next, after a lot of time spent on coordination, I spoke to the hiring manager who seemed nice and professional. Later I received positive feedback and notification from the recruiter that I’d be moving to the next round and to expect another email in probably a few days to coordinate times. The following week I then received a rejection email saying they were in the final stages with other candidates.

    Overall, like I said, very strange process- from the recruiter interaction, communication and coordination, drawn out process, and exceptionally low salary range. In the end, I was intending on withdrawing my candidacy but was curious to see how it would pan out. I recommend the company get a handle on its recruiting and hiring practices because this inspires in potential future candidates no confidence.
