    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Quest Software (Aliso Viejo, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I received a call within 24 hours of submitting online. The recruiter was pleasant and managed the interview scheduling. The hiring manager and 2 others gave 1:1 interview, 2 in person and 1 phone interview. The people I interviewed with were very pleasant, they asked unique questions. One manager even took notes which made me feel heard and interested. I'm still going through the interview process and regardless if I land the job or not, I have respect for Quest and the culture they obviously work hard to preserve. Great job Quest!!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Quest Software (Buffalo Grove, IL) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I had 2 phone interviews with Quest Software human resources people. The second phone interview came about one week after the first.

    In the first phone interview they sprung a .NET test on me.

    They were constantly telling me to read and understand their website for the interview with them. The website was http://www.vizioncore.com.

    In the 3rd and final phone interview, a manager asked me questions that lasted for 5 minutes and that wasn't because I didn't have any answers. He only asked 3 questions.

    No one got back to me for 2 weeks so I emailed one of the HR people. She told me I didn't get the job. I emailed back letting them know that they were unprofessional to not contact me and let me know as they said they would.

    I don't recommend interviewing with Quest Software or any of its subsidiary companies such as Vizioncore. Very unprofessional!

    Interview Details – I finished my interview for Technical Support Engineer in December

    I was approached by a HR person on linkedin, had a phone conversation, then a Tech test and nterview with the hiring manager, and then support director .. finally I spent a half day with the support team.

    Throughout the process, they seemed really interested in how my company does things, processes and KCS and such like, which I felt was a little odd.

    Everything seemed to be really positive and I was promised feenback in a week...after a week I chased feedback..then a no thanks email.

    I asked for feedback..and never heard from them again..

    Considering that I had taken holiday and spent a half day with them watching the job..i was rather hoping for feedback on why i did not get the role.

    Interview

    Interviewing manager was refreshingly upfront, said he didn't think this was going to go further. I started the cycle by reaching out to the head of the sales group which seemed to have offended the interviewer. It seemed I was getting and interview because the boss told them to. We went through the motions. I couldn't find much about this company to excite me, so I was probably not a great interview.

    I finished my interview for Technical Support Engineer in January and they told they will finalise it in one week but after a week later they emailed me the hiring manager did not select me but another candidate was more suitable. My colleague attended the same interview last month and they told the same thing to him also. Any one selected by this company?

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Quest Software in June 2010.

    Interview

    Interview focused mostly on questions related to adaptability to change, experience with databases, and launching new software products. The company is growing, so being able to work cross-functionally was an important question area. Also, the company is really pushing towards software as a solution, so hands-on experience in this area was also important. My experience is more general product marketing, so I think the fit was not right. Culture is typical software - very laid back and casual.
