    Product Designer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines.

    Interview

    Contractor role, 1st round with hiring manager went really well. 2nd with 6 PM/POs, one of them joined when the interview is about to end. 2nd round is super weird, seems like some people don't want to do this or they were forced to interview me, and the interaction was poor, I don't know what they think about my answer, is not an open dialog. From the questions they asked, I feel like the team may have their own opinion on UX, and seems like one of the PM/PO is doing the UX work, and about 3-5 months without a UX person in the team, which is fine, some companies do things this way, but it may lead to some thinking about if I'm a PM/PO can handle/decide UX work, why we need a UXer here to make UX decisions, we just need an executer? And a lot of questions is how I handle hard things, honestly to me, most of the things are not hard, you tackle problems use HCD, break into chunks. It gives me the impression they may want someone that is not as confident and comfortable as me handling jobs, but a more obedient soldier.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle conflicts?
      I handle conflicts all the time, but if an interviewer asks you, usually means the team always has conflicts and it didn't handle well(otherwise it won't have conflicts...)   1 Answer

    Good. It was not as expected but I decided to keep doing the interview as it was very hard. I would recommend to go over common questions before interviewing here. They need experience

    The interview was straightforward. I had a phone call with the recruiter for screening. If the recruiter thinks that you are what they are looking for, they will fly you to the corporate office at no cost. The face-to-face interview was relaxed and friendly.

    Interview

    So far I just did the phone call interview. It's more of a screening call. So it asks basic questions. Make sure you meet the requirements for the post they'll ask and you'll send your transcript later on with rec letters. I have my next interview in person soon.
