A un Product Manager le preguntaron...26 de junio de 2011

What would you do to double the revenue for an existing Google product in the next 12 months?

9 respuestas

I would ask the interviewer to clarify the question by: - what specific product - what are the current focused segment of the product - to increase revenue, you need to either find other focused segment (i.e.,e adjacent market) or increase market share in the current focused segment - if you already have large mkt share, then it is best to focus on creating solution for other focused segments Menos

We can try doing one or a combination of the below: 1. Double the incoming traffic by spending more marketing and advertisements. (promote your adds) 2. Double the price of your commodity in a convincing way. (Make it a premium product by adding features) 3. Double the conversion rate. ( This might be possible if you have a very bad existing UX) 4. Double the retention rate. ( This could possible by offering discounts or offers) 5. Double purchase conversion rate. Menos

Or just add free stuff to the value of the excising product. This will positively impact top line (gross revenue) and the interviewer apparently didn’t ask about bottom line (net margin) at all Menos

Difference between Risk and Issues in Project Management

8 respuestas

Risk is something you anticipate in Project whereas Issue is something that is already happened in Project Menos

? Issue- potential to impact – have a plan to mitigate. (Is a "Known") ? Risk – We can devise plans to mitigate but no expected ETA.(several unknowns)- Also Risk can become an opportunity Menos

Risk is something that can happen in future while issue is a current event, something that has already happened. Risk may or may not occur but issue is a problem that has already occurred. Issues tend to need a more reactive responses while Risks require proactive planning. Risk can be predictable and will be preventable. But if there is an issue, its cause of bad planning and execution. Menos

How many calories are in a grocery store?

9 respuestas

My local grocery store (supermarket) has 10 checkouts operating during busy times. Assume on average it takes 2 minutes to service each customer. That's 30 customers per hours x 10 checkouts = 300 customers per hour. Assume the store is busy 4 hours per day, that's 1,200 customers and that accounts for 80% of the store's turnover so 1,500 customers per day. Assume on average each customer is buying enough food for 2 people, that's 3,000 people. People on average consume 2,000 calories per day but not all of it comes from the grocery store, let's say 75% does that's 1,500 calories. Putting it all together 3,000 people * 1,500 calories = 4,500,000 calories per day ... but wait there's more. If the store turns over stock on average every 5 days that means there's 5 days of calories on the shelves, that's 22,500,000 calories. Lots of assumptions but the answer seems reasonable Menos

A calorie is defined as: the energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water through 1 °C. The average grocery store is 4000m^2. Assuming average energy density of 200 calories/m^2 (Calories in a medium pizza) there should be 800000 calories in a grocery store. Menos

Perhaps breaking up the grocery store into it's main categories and estimating the caloric density of each type of food may be the way to go? E.g. Frozen foods (high density), meats (medium), junk food and soda (high), veggies (low), non-food items (none), dairy (high), packaged foods (medium). Then estimate how space is typically allocated on these categories (10%, 20%, etc.). Then estimate how many such items can fit in, say a 10 ft area that has 3 positions (top, middle, bottom). Scale up the estimate as needed. Assign values to caloric density and at the least, you have solved the problem. Probably not the most elegant solution but it's what comes to mind immediately. Menos

How do you code integer division without using divider ('/')

8 respuestas

You iteratively perform subtractions, which is all that division is. If there is a remainder, you multiply it by 10 and repeat your iterative subtractions. The number of times you need to subtract is represented in a counter, which becomes the digits within the result. Menos

exp(log(a)-log(b))

You can do division with shifts and subtracts...

An apple costs 40 cents, a banana costs 60 cents, and grapefruit costs 80 cents. Under the same circumstances, how much does a pear cost?

8 respuestas

40 cents... it's 20 cents per vowel, not 10.

40 cents. 20 cents for each cents.

Hey Blake - while that answer is very creative, this particular question was given during a 12-question-3-minute math test. I'd say that you might have a hard time writing all of your economics answer down in three minutes. Nice answer, though! Menos

I got into the marketing program, finished it, got the certificate, recommendation letter and a lot of practical and theoretical knowledge. It was a very pleasant and fun experience. Menos

Not sure if it's a fake company, but a red flag when looking for a job its if the recruiter askes you for money. Menos

I'm about to finish their marketing training program. I don't want to write a long elaboration so I can just say that the whole experience was great - helpful tutor, approachable management and friendly atmosphere. Definitely recommended! Menos

Every single interviewer asked a puzzle question. The most complex was: You're standing in a boat in a reservoir of water that is filled to the brim. There is a brick sitting on the bottom of the boat. If you pick up the brick and throw it into the reservoir, will the water overflow?

7 respuestas

Hint: When the brick is sitting in the boat, the amount of water displaced is relative to the mass of the brick. When the brick is in the water, the amount of water displaced is relative to the volume of the brick. The question then is, which is greater? Menos

This is a fun question! Assuming that a) by being filled to the brim they mean that the reservoir is filled with water in such a way that the viscosity of water is pushed to the limit (that is that the bubble lip which forms at the edge is to the brim) b) the brick has a mass which is non-negligible Then the simple act of lifting up the brick off the bottom of the boat will cause the water to overflow. You'll be exerting an increased force on the bottom of the boat, which will result in the boat temporarily displacing more water, which will cause an overflow. Menos

Well the clue is in the question. If you "throw" the brick in an upward fashion, then you will exert downward force onto the boat you are standing on which will be greater than the previous pressure of just you, boat + brick, and hence momentarily, the water (ignoring friction, water tension etc etc) will overflow over the side of the reservoir. If you pick up the brick and "drop" it into the water ( ignoring waves and surface tension), then the water will not overflow. Menos

You have a ladder of N steps (rungs). You can go up the ladder by taking either 1 step or two steps at a time, in any combination. How many different routes are there (combinations of 1 steps or 2 steps) to make it up the ladder?

7 respuestas

You don't need to be familiar with the Fibonacci series. Simply test the first few cases manually and you can deduce that there's a pattern. A ladder with 2 rungs (that is, the floor, rung #1 and rung#2): 2 ways to climb. 1+1, 2. A ladder with 3 rungs: 3 ways to climb. 1+1+1, 1+2, 2+1. A ladder with 4 rungs: 5 ways to climb. Think of it as climbing 1 rung and then you're at a 3-rung ladder (3 ways to climb) or climbing 2 rungs and then you're at a 2 rungs ladder (2 ways to climb). Overall you have 3+2 ways. A ladder with 5 rungs: like the previous case, you climb 1 and reach a 4-rungs ladder, or climb 2 and reach a 3-rungs ladder. overall 5+3, or 8 ways. .. .. .. A ladder with N rungs: sum of climbing (N-1) ladder and climbing (N-2) ladder: Ways(N) = Ways(N-1) + Ways (N-2). this can be solved with recursion or brute force. Menos

And how in the hell does this question relate to being a Product Manager if you do not know the formula? Menos

Speculating here, but I think the point is to be able to derive some sort of formula. Saying "it's a Fibonacci sequence!" should only get you points if your interviewer is a dweeb. Menos

15 Minuten vom zweiten Gespräch beschäftigten sich mit einer Münz-Denksportaufgabe: Sie haben eine Münze und 3 Türen. Wie wählt man eine der drei Türen aus, indem man die Münze wirft? Wie hoch ist die Wahrscheinlichkeit nach dem ausgewählten Algorithmus, jede der drei Türen zu wählen? Kann man ihn so wählen, dass die Wahrscheinlichkeit für alle drei Türen gleich ist? Der Gesprächspartner wollte anscheinend keine Lösung hören, die anders war als seine Antwort (oder die im Buch? :)). Vorgeschlagener Algorithmus: K=Kopf Z=Zahl Werfen Sie die Münze zweimal: KK oder ZZ -> nehmen Sie Tür Nr. 3 sonst benutzen Sie das Ergebnis des allerersten Wurfs: wenn (K1) -> nehmen Sie Tür Nr. 1 wenn (Z1) -> nehmen Sie Tür Nr. 2 Ich gebe zu, dass ich diese Frage und die Länge der Zeit, die wir darauf verwendet haben, nicht besonders toll fand. Meiner Meinung nach hätten wir die wirklich kurze Zeit darauf verwenden können, Probleme aus dem echten Leben zu besprechen, die für die Stelle relevant waren, also habe ich versucht, meinen Algorithmus als die "schnelle und einfache" Lösung zu verkaufen und gehofft, dass es dann weitergeht, aber anscheinend war es für meinen Gesprächspartner prinzipiell wichtig, die gleiche Lösung zu finden, die er hatte.

I think all the previous answer are somehow incomplete (and the one given by the author of this post is wrong, for this reason he kept asking you the question trying to help). Toss the coin 2 time. Here the possible outcomes: HH => try again HT => Door 1 TH => Door 2 TT => Door 3 This way the probability to choose a door is evenly distributed. And you cover all the possible outcomes. Ciao! Menos

Since you are tossing a coin, the number of outcomes will never be divisible by 3. Thus, no matter how many times you toss the coin, you can never divide the number of outcomes into 3 equal probability groups. This also means that if you MUST choose a door, then one of them will be chosen more often than the others, or NOT choosing must be a possibility. In the latter case, you have to come up with an alternative, like flip two times (4 possible outcomes to match the 4 choices...3 doors + 1'flip again' option). The problem with flipping again option is that you 'leave the door open' to the possibility that you might never choose a door. What if you keep getting the HH option and never open a door?? Thus, a better alternative is needed: Choose two of the doors first (doesn't matter which ones) then flip between them. Winner gets to compete against the third door with the second coin toss. In both cases any door has a 50% chance of being chosen, and the probability does not change for the second try. So, each door has an equal probability of being chosen, AND a door WILL be chosen. Menos

The idea of the question is, most probably, to detect if a candidate understand the idea of binary numbers. A candidate should be aware, most probably, of how to express the notion of digit 3, provided with just 2 available states, that is 1 and 0. In short, one has to write down 3 in base 2 Menos
