    Product Operation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hostelworld Group (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I met the recruiter at a job fair. She was very nice and suggested I apply for this particular role. After I applied, I had a call with the future CPO who was yet to join the company at that point. I then had another call with a Product Owner. I was finally invited to a 4 part interview onsite, with 3 different Product Managers, and the CPO who had just started.

    Some of the managers were unsure of the requirements of the role. The CPO didn't prepare for the interview and was surprised by big portions of my CV when I mentioned them.

    After 6 interviews, they have decided to postpone the role because there is a huge amount of change happening in the company. They were really nice, but really disorganised. Also, after 6 interviews with them I would have expected a call from the recruiter. I got an email instead. The process should have been far more professional. Although the people I interviewed with were incredibly nice and seem very competent at their jobs.
