    Associate Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Penske Media (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    After applying online I was contacted by the head of the product engineering project (PEP) team. We had a brief conversation about my experience and my interest in the job.
    Following this call was an email inviting me to an online interview with other high-level members of the PEP team.
    After a successful online interview, I was invited to the LA office to meet some more people I would be working with. Everyone got a chance to ask me questions about my experience, and I had the opportunity to ask further questions about the job and the company.
    Finally, I was offered the job over a phone call a week later - after that call I was contacted by the HR team to organize my employment documents.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Penske Media (New York, NY (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I applied for the job via LinkedIn, and within a few days, I heard back to schedule an initial interview over video chat with the VP of Tech. The VP asked me general questions about my experiences, and about me. I also got to ask a lot of questions about the company and the role. This interview gave me a great overview of the company.

    Following the initial interview, I had two other more technical interviews over video chat. The first one was a technical interview where two engineers asked me general programming/concept questions. There were no programming challenges, which is something I have had bad experiences with in the past. This technical was very refreshing, because as a front end engineer, the questions I got were very fair. As a newer engineer, some of my answers were not very strong, but the interviewers cared how I thought through these problems and appreciated my honesty when I said I just don't know. Best interview experience I have ever had, because PMC Engineering doesn't care about answering Fizz Buzz questions as fast as you can, they care about you as an individual and what you can bring to the team.

    My second interview was not as technical, an engineer and a PM asked just general questions about my technical knowledge, what languages I know, and questions about how I learn, work, and communicate with others.

    The entire process took maybe 2 weeks and then I heard back with an offer.

    Interview

    The interview process went very smoothly. Every person I spoke with (there were five) was very interested in who I was as a person, accepted my transparency about my professional goals, and communicated how I can achieve those goals, which made my desire to work there that much greater. You always hear that the people are what make a job, and just from conversing with the people I spoke with I know this will be a great growth opportunity for me.
