I recently had a product manager interview @Flexport, unfortunately, they decided to pursue other candidates. Not quite sure why. Nevertheless, I am extremely interested in a PM role at one of these top startups due to my extensive background in SCM, process improvement, lean six sigma, & product launch.

      Interesting. You worked with at other companies, as a client, or employee at the company?

      What specifically didn't you like about them?

      ^ haven't heard about inflated numbers before. They bring up growth rate a lot during recruitment cycle.

      Politics and drama, first time hearing that too. More interested in the inflated numbers part.

      also filling customer success roles, which are great for people with solid industry experience but not as much of a background in software/pm. still very involved in product development process
