Product manager interview questions shared by candidates
You are Product Manager at YouTube and you suddenly realize that you have viewership has fallen by 50%. How would you figure out what happened.
My first response was to say that as a YouTube PM if you didn't know your viewership had fallen 50%, there are more serious issues here and you probably should be fired. I didn't approach this the way the interviewer wanted - there are many books that cover how case interviews are to be structured, but frankly given my experience level I wasn't expecting such a bizarre conversation. I have been on both sides of the interview process, and this approach strikes me as a particularly bad way to hire PMs since it isn't reflective of what happens on the job, as opposed to using it to hire a Junior Consultant at McKinsey. The success (or lack of it) of this me-too knock-off product is also indicative of where this approach has taken them.
Perhaps your throwing "how damn experienced I am" and " I am too good to follow the rules" pissed off the interviewer?
This is a standard question in facebook google Microsoft amazon and pretty much every large tech company. How did you approach it?
