    Vice President Corporate Communications Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at OpenText.

    Interview Details

    I was profiled by a very nice recruiter from Canada, who had a basic job description but knew little about the position. Including how the company was planning on changing from a holding company to a new stack that would make them competitive and innovative. Good luck. The CMO is not a CMO from any perspective and is from the so-called enterprise group at Adobe. Adobe has had a long unsuccessful history of selling to the enterprise. There are really no marketing communications people in the US and that is also a big issue. I have been there before with another Canadian Company.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview with the so-called CMO began awkwardly and without any pleasantries, its was almost as if he didn't want to do it. When I asked simple questions about their technology plans, his comment was, well those are product marketing questions and not appropriate for this interview. Humm we continued for another 15 minutes, and I felt like I was talking in another language, the language of enterprise computing that is. When he asked me how I would bring this new stack to market, I mentioned analyst groups, and the response was well analyst relations well that is owned by product marketing. I have brought many products to market including NetWeaver and know how to coordinate various teams in a large company. After 20 minutes I said I think this conversation is over and let's not waste any more time. He said in a condescending way, "well thank your sir for coming."   View Answers (2)

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at OpenText in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Reached out to the recruiter about the role.
    Recruiter did the initial phone screen.

    After a week or so, the recruiter reached back to me inviting me for an interview with Hiring Manager (Director of the division). The interview was scheduled for a month later since the Hiring Manager was travelling.

    Next was a onsite interview with the Hiring Manager - very cordial interview. The Hiring Manager gave me an opportunity to discuss my background, past work experience and level of interest in the job. Then the Hiring Manager provided me overview of the role, responsibilities, expectations and timelines. He described the customer base, hiring timelines his experience with the company etc.

    Interestingly he asked me to meet with couple of team members from their Development and QA teams. Both the members were cordial and gave good insight into the Product Organization.

    Overall the interview was positive, I was hopeful of getting a callback. But I did NOT hear back from the recruiter/Hiring Manager for couple of weeks. When contacted, the Hiring Manager told me he was still interviewing other candidates.

    After couple of weeks, upon reaching out to the Hiring Manager - I was informed that role was moved to Germany upon request of their biggest customer.

    Anonymous Employee in Kirkland, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Kirkland, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at OpenText in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through carer builder. Two days later I was contacted by a recruiter to set-up a phone interview. The phone interview I thought went spectacular as the recruiter kept complimenting me on my experience, personality, and positive attitude. she mentioned she will submit my info to a sales manger and gave some preparation research to do before he contacted me and mentioned I should hear from the sales manager within a couple of days.. Three hours later I was sent an email saying we have decided to move on to other candidates. Very strange indeed.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. She just wanted to hear about my previous sales experience and goals i have achieved with reasons on why I left prior sales positions. She thanked me for serving our country as I am a medic/surgical Tech in the Army Reserves.   Answer Question

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at OpenText in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initial response was quick but to declare the result whether you are selected or not takes couple of weeks and after couple of weeks if you don't hear from them, then assume you are not selected. They don't even inform you if you are NOT selected because they take so long to decide that probably they don't even remember about you anymore.

    Anonymous Employee in Hyderābād (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at OpenText in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview Process is very big. Almost 6 Technical rounds. Each round around 1 Hour.
    I think one level panel members dont believe on previous round panel. Every round was technical and even Project Manager also asked basic core java questions. This seems to be funny. Each interviewer wants to prove himself on what he knows.

    Interview Questions
    • Basic Core java question from a Project manager in 6th round was unexpected.   View Answer
