    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Quest Software in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Typical two interviews. Met first with the manager, than the supervisor. Somewhat of a reverse order.
    I was the first candidate they interviewed, they interviewed others after me. The whole process took about 5 weeks from when I had the first interview to the actual start date.

    Software Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Quest Software in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews - first with hiring manager, second with hiring manager's boss.

    First interview consisted of company overview and detailed description of the role and some basic questions about my experience, approach, etc. I also met with another team member for a few minutes to ask questions about manager, manager's style, typical day, etc.

    Second interview was a pleasant conversation about my experience, why this company, etc. Explained to me that I would likely receive an offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    Company has a set pay level (base + commission) for each position. They refused to make any consolation to show they were extremely interested in me as a candidate - felt more like they were filling a chair. Company's recruiter told me hiring manager left a message that he "had to have me" on his team, but they didn't show this in their offer.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed by an employee who didn't know what to ask. The whole appointment was confusing. Nobody knows about anything about the product area I was starting for. Another appointment was with the Sales Manager and the Presales Manager.

    The interview process was pretty quick. Applied through LinkedIn. Got contacted by HR. First interview was set up in a week with the VP. Once that was cleared, had two follow up interviews with product managers. All the interviews were over phone and lasted around 30 minutes each. Mostly straight forward questions regarding my work experience.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Quest Software in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was interviews by two people - both of them very senior and just arrived in from the States to help set up the operation here.

    They didn't have any of the attitude I've come across in other companies - they were unassuming and it wasn't a tough interview - there were no questions about weaknesses etc, although I heard they were asking that type of stuff off other candidates.

    They didnt go into too much detail on a lot of my CV - just the relevant parts.

    There was only one round.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Pretty straightforward - they made an offer which was very good, so I accepted.
