    Technical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woburn, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woburn, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Acronis.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with recruiter, in-person with hiring manager on one day, in-person interviews with two VP's on another day, in-person interview with a senior exec on another day, and a week later a remote interview with yet another senior exec. Then nothing. I sent emails asking for status, but never heard a thing.

    Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Acronis.

    Interview Details

    Had phone interview with recruiter that went very well. He then scheduled interview with member of executive team for the following week. Upon speaking with the executive, I was thrown off base by him immediately asking if I had any questions for him. This seemed odd, as most other interviews I've had include the interviewer asking me to walk through my experience and qualifications first.

    Seeing that many of the staff are Russian, I asked if the company was being established as a US-based company or a Russian company with U.S. headquarters. Apparently, this was a very sensitive topic, as the exec responded angrily that he did not understand my question and then proceeded to tell me that Americans are too sensitive about Russians since the whole Edward Snowden incident. Okay...

    At that point, I knew my interview was pretty much done. The call lasted 15-minutes. Once I got off the phone, I notified the recruiter that I was no longer interested in Acronis.

    Regional Sales Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was convoluted at best. It changed with every management change. Interview schedules were not communicated well and people were left waiting and even rescheduled. Some candidates would interview with 5 people and others just one. The results were always mixed.

    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woburn, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woburn, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Acronis in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    It's no secret that Acronis has had some instability in recent years, and the interview team was very up-front about why, how it was being addressed at the highest levels and how the company planned to move forward. From my vantage point, they're making the right choices and doing the right things to address their lagging numbers and turnover. It was a great SE team and from my research in the industry/community, their SE manager is one of the best. They were aggressive in their pursuit of me as a candidate and stated that they are committed to hiring good talent as one of the steps to improve their business.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked about technology I previously sold/supported   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I had an offer with a business closer to my professional background. The ramp-up time at Acronis would have taken much longer. I then turned around and told 2 friends to go interview there.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Acronis in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    It has changed so much over the past few years. When I went in I met with 6 or 7 different managers. I heard the same stories over and over about how successful they all are/were. They all talked a lot. Didn't really ask me anything, didn't answer most of my questions.

    PR Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Acronis.

    Interview Details

    Was represented by a headhunter as he saw my credentials in LinkedIn. The interview process was long as I was told that the hirer in the U.S. has left. Hence they put the position on hold and reopened the position again after some time. Did a peer interview which was not what I'd have expected as the person (seems a lot more junior in industry experience than me) does not understand the discipline of the job and dismissed many of my credentials and experience to their HR. Worst, the headhunter did not even try to convince them. Nonetheless, I think it is a blessing in disguise as I watched their latest ad campaign which I don't think it is appropriate. I don't know how I could represent them as a PR person as such :(

    Interview Questions
    • None but I guess the person in the peer interview does not know the job entails and hence didn't share much about it. Just checking up on my past experiences/credentials.   Answer Question
