Program Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ola (Bengaluru).

Interview

Exploratory call followed by in-person interview.Almost 4 rounds of interview. All were around project management questions. Mostly around the execution of project and planning. Team members interview hence a great opportunity to know the team as well.

Logistical: Had to spend 4K as part of the transportation cab-travel cost which didn't get reimbursed though I was an outstation candidate. Least of my bothering but worth mentioning I felt was - that the office wasn't hygienic & was in plans to be moved to new place.

Interview/team interaction: To comprehend what ola is up to took a while for the head of PM & most of the PMs. My goal wasn't to crack an interview instead wanted work with a great team. I felt management recruits in India-startups currently might not be great skilled & not excite you as a forcing factor to join the company. As Project Manager just runs the timelines here & product management role gets the meat of defining the product, neither was role exciting personally for me.

The opportunity such place offers in terms of learning how to execute is immense by working on multiple features all across, a great pay & directly impacting/working with an average Indian customers by working with nerd/geeks.

These are my personal opinions & it's a +ve-trend to be in startups so give it a try & all the best!

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ola (Indore) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I specifically liked that they did not use a Group Discussion round because I feel it is just the noisy and impulsive who win. The interviewers were very friendly, they asked me about what mistakes I have observed by their cabs and after I pointed out a few, asked me for my suggested solutions. It was a thought-process stimulating session and it helped that they were not much older than I was and we could relate on most current situations and opinions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ola in October 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process happened within three days but the offer finalisation is taking weeks. There were three rounds in all, mostly focusing on work experience and a little bit of business case solving abilities. The last round was simply an HR round to clarify role related doubts. After that the recruiting HR called to discuss my expectations regarding compensation. It's been more than two weeks and she hasn't responded since then.
    Writing this review in the hope that the HR will give some response, just maybe.
