UI/User Experience Design Manager was asked...30 July 2018

Even though the position was a Sr Manager -- and I have 20+ years experience - I was given a "homework" assignment more suitable for recent grads and interns. If I was interviewing for CFO, would they have given me a math quiz?

I tried to answer in far more detail than was asked. After I was told I would not be moving forward, I politely asked for feedback Not only was I not given any, they wouldn't even respond to tell me it was against their policy not to give feedback (something I later learned from Glassdoor). Maybe I rejected because of age? Less

You were not rejected because of age. I was hired by Tableau at 58 years of age, and there are lots and lots of gray-haired people around. It is the friendliest situation for people in their 50's and 60's and even 70's that I have ever encountered in my long, long career :). Less

Walked them through a project and some screenshots. They declined a week later and did not provide feedback even after I asked. In fact, not reply at all. This is after asking me to do a presentation in a week's notice. Not a great experience. Less


They mentioned how to handle multiple priorities. They seem to be in the midst of organizational change.


In your current role, what is the makeup of your team? How is UX driving product strategy? How are designers allocated to projects and how is work distributed?
