Reverse Interview

Questions to ask the hiring manager in an interview. These are going to have a product management flavor.

General

  • History of this position
  • Concerns regarding my application
    • Is there anything I said that makes you doubt I would be a great fit for this position?
  • How would you measure my success and how can I exceed them?

Management

  • Ask about a difficult decision that had to be made in the company
  • What is an example of someone who made a career progression under them?
  • An example of someone who went through a performance review

Product

  • What is your strategy?

Career growth

  • I want to mentor junior PMs. What opportunities are there?

Food for thought:

We want an exponential career path but keep in mind humans learn linearly. We need to create inflection points in these linear paths.
