In Product Gym, we have encountered many people that have been either students or have been teachers at our courses that have dealt with noteworthy companies like General Assembly. The E-learning company has been heavily pursued as a great place to work at by Product Managers and non-Product Managers alike. However, when it comes to applying for a Product Manager position at General Assembly, it becomes very hard to get in. Obviously, they are selective with any position. It’s therefore very important to gain any advantages you may have the opportunity to have.
Thankfully, we here at Product Gym have had experience dealing with the application process at General Assembly and have written some basic questions that we believe will be asked by any of their recruiters or hiring staff at any stage of the interview process after applying. General Assembly is largely interested in applicants that have a strong skill set in promoting products and effectively leading product projects. We here at Product Gym have provided access to questions that will be asked in the first round interviews so people wanting to work at General Assembly but worried about being unprepared will have a leg up on their competition and answer these questions with heavy preparation.
