Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Barcelona (Spain)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hotjar (Barcelona (Spain)) in October 2019.

Interview

Answer some initial questions on the application page, then they invite you to answer a few questions via video (not video calls, you submit video recordings). The next step is to jump on a 1h call with the recruiter and with a "hiring manager". This person is another product manager that will be your touch point during the rest of the process (mine was really helpful). The last stage is to complete a few tasks. You have two weeks to do that and you receive compensation for that period of work. During these two weeks you will be added to Hotjar's Slack and will have access to a public channel (where people hang out to relax) and a private channel dedicated to your task. In this channel there will be multidisciplinary people from the company that you can collaborate with in order to accomplish your task. When you finish, a call is scheduled so you can present your work to more members of the team and discuss your findings.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Hotjar in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process has been one of the most challenging ones I have ever gone through in my career. Hotjar puts a lot of effort and time into making sure that the candidate is a right fit with the culture of the company. Through their process they also ensure that the right skills and knowledge are possessed by the candidate. The interview process takes around 6-8 weeks with a number of steps: Filling a questionnaire, recording a video of yourself, interview with one of the directors, a task(which you're paid for) and a final interview at the end with other senior members of the team. I personally found it fun and engaging as it felt like a hurdle race, where every challenge put forward was there to test your ability from a different angle. Overall my feedback is very positive and I have no doubt that through this filtering process you are guaranteed a strong culture and expertise within the company. Highly recommend to give it a shot if you're interested in one of their job openings. Even if you don't get it, the interview process provides a lot of learnings that you can apply in your career.

    Thanks for your feedback. I apologize for the horrible experience. While it might seem that the 'No' was related to salary expectations it never is. However we communicated this poorly and led to the misunderstanding.

    We are making changes to our process to now publish salary ranges up front with all new job listings.

    Thanks again for your input.
