    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Qlik (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Had to build and present an application with a good story as if to a customer to other Solution Architects and sales staff. Felt it was the right approach.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly business situational as they reinforced the need to sell business value.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    None. Take it or leave it and the offer was below market. However, the technology rocks.

    Director Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Qlik.

    Interview

    Interview was very straightforward and cordial. Interviewers seem genuinely interested and didn't ask ridiculous or contrived questions. It was an easygoing dialogue, not a high pressure or high stress situation at all.

    Negotiation

    You can negotiate base pay + bonus, plus up to 3 weeks of vacation (I think base is 2, but if you have work experience you can get it up to 3). Stock options were difficult to negotiate, but they did award the options as promised.

    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Qlik (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    I first spoke with HR to get basic interview, logistics and paperwork. Next I was asked to create an application using the QlikView software. I had three days. On the third day I had an interview with the VP of Services and several of his senior managers. I was asked to present the application I had created. I fielded questions from everyone over the next hour of so.

    Negotiation

    This phase was a little disorganized. I had discussed salary numbers with the VP of Services but when the offer came it was for substantially less. I was unhappy with this seeming bait and switch. I found out it was because the President of the Americas at that time was a bit of a character and didn't like the deal his VP had struck. I almost had to decline, but they came back with a second offer that was a little better than the first numbers we had discussed. I was happy and understood that sometimes politics can obstruct progress.

    Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Radnor, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Qlik (Radnor, PA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    -I networked to get in touch with the Inside Sales Manager where I expressed my interest in working for Qlik.
    -We arranged a phone call where I spent roughly 30-45 minutes describing some of my previous work and my desire to work for Qlik.
    -The Inside Sales Manager gave me some content(homework) to learn over the weekend (phone interview was a Friday) which we would discuss at an on-site interview the following Monday.
    -3 days after the phone interview I went on-site to discuss my previous work in more detail, present a demo based on the information I was given prior, role play a sales call based on an article I was given prior, and talk with a current member of the inside sales team.
    -Approximately 2-3 days later I received an invitation for a Skype interview (the whole sales org was training in another state for the remainder of that week) where I had a third interview with the VP of Inside Sales. During this interview I discussed my previous work & future goals.
    -I was told then, verbally, that they would likely be extending me an offer, which they did less than a week later.
    -The interview process beginning to end was less than a week and I received a formal offer within two weeks of my initial contact.

    Interview Questions

    • The process was straight forward and they questions were all related to previous work I had done. These guys are straight to the point and do not waste your time or theirs with odd behavioral questions. I can only speak for the sales channel, I'm not sure if this is applicable to other channels within the company.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was told what the starting salary would be and what additional compensation would include which I felt was competitive and in line with my expectations. I was getting married a week after my start date and they accommodated my honeymoon time off request without using any of my vacation days which I felt was a nice gesture.

    Sales Productivity Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winnersh, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Qlik (Winnersh, England (UK)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Headhunted for the position by former colleague seeking members of new team. Met with her on the Friday and we both confirmed it was a go-er, then I had 1 face-to-face and 4 other Exec interviews (on telephone, between 30-90 minutes) & 1 HR telephone interview (60 minutes) during the following week. Received my verbal offer from HR the next Monday, received and accepted written offer Tuesday. Whole process complete in 7 working days. Received a 'Welcome to QlikTech' card a few days later. Started on my chosen start date two weeks later. Faultless.

    It's culture and policy to ensure that every key stakeholder has a say in the hiring process. If anyone says no - and it's explored and decided it's a proper no - then they don't hire. So everyone has 'met' and accepted the new hire.

    Interviews were all in-depth discussions with equal time given to communicating the strategy & objectives of the company & the role, and understanding my suitability. So I fully understood what they needed and could therefore respond much more fully. Each was an intense conversation where we both ended with a complete knowledge of the other's requirements & inputs. Not the usual list of 'clever' or 'standard' questions, but a completely relevant, thorough conversation which did the job perfectly. Including the HR interview - it was intelligent and insightful.

    Interview Questions

    • There was nothing designed to catch you out - everything asked was relevant and intelligent. It was genuinely a business discussion which left both parties with a view on whether this was a person they could each work with.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated on several elements - in particular I wanted a higher base salary in line with my previous role. The discussion was very quick & friendly - they took my requirements to a decision maker and came back with a different offer the next day. They couldn't give me exactly what I wanted but they were creative with the offer and despite a base salary lower than my existing role I was still so impressed, and confident that the performance bonus would be paid, I accepted it. The process was managed by HR and was friendly and efficient.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Qlik in April 2011.

    Interview

    I saw the job ad on the internet website and applied online on Tuesday evening, got a phone call from HR department within 2 days (Thursday) inviting for 1:1 interview. That happened the following week on Tuesday and lasted about an hour where we talked about my education and work background. The office was very nice, clean and modern and HR lady very polite, professional and friendly. Then after 2 days she phoned for my 2nd interview with my manager to be and his colleague, which took place very soon after. They both also talked about my education and work background but in much more detail but there was no pressure during the interview, for me it was like having a chat with some colleagues. I also met some other people who worked there and they were all very friendly and open. I received the formal job offer via email 7 days after that (apparently the selection was made on the same day but HR were too busy to send the job offer quickly) I started working there within 3 weeks from my first application.

    I was happy with the offer so I didn't negotiate but off course checked the contract, benefits and work hours with HR and my manager.
