    Senior Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 9 months - interviewed at Apigee in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Received an arrogant email through LinkedIn 'Opportunity knocks only once, apply now ...'
    Turned me off and ignored it. 6 months later found position was still unfilled so I applied.
    Within days I received a professional email and setup a phone screen.
    Unfortunately, the hiring manager was yelling at me and the phone line had a lot of static forcing
    the interview to be rescheduled. At the rescheduled interview, the hiring manager was absent and needless to say the recruiter was only filling time.

    Had an initial phone interview for an hour. Started off with the basic tell me about yourself and clarification of things from the resume. Then jumped on to technical questions. Nothing out of the box. The interviewer was friendly and did not hesitate to clarify your thinking process behind solving the prroblem.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Apigee.

    Interview Details

    Applied on their website. Spoken to the recruiting coordinator over the phone. Had a conversation with the hiring Manager. Then was asked to come onsite for a 1:1 interview. It was a regular Silicon valley interview with a lot of white boarding. I liked the clarity. They know what they wanted and made sure I have stuff to offer them.

    Technical Evangelist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Apigee.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview with recruiter and was set up for an additional phone interview with the Department Head. The second interview was canceled because he required more hands-on coding. The initial phone interview was "okay" ... she seemed to go over my qualifications quite a bit and ask multiple variations of the same question as though she was suspicious. My impression of Apigee is that the organization is very textbook and if you're not the standard ivy league graduate, they won't consider you. I feel their competitors will outpace them due to this conservative approach - personal belief that the future of technology will be determined by the diversity of your team. Twitter is a perfect example. Founders from MidWest; some with no degree.

    Senior Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Apigee.

    Interview Details

    My Verbal Offer was Rescinded!

    5 - 6 interviews, all went very well including an interview with the new VP of Sales. I received
    great feedback after the technical demonstration and presentation which was conducted over a Go To meeting. I've been a Sales Engineer for the last 13 years and was very excited when I received a verbal offer. I then waited..........and found out the CEO was questioning my programming skills, what languages i know, what my last development project was. This CEO decided to rescind my offer and his followers were powerless to come together and convince him i was the perfect candidate with the right balance of technical skills, sales and soft skills that would help bring in revenue. I guess the CEO ultimately decided at the 11th hour that he wanted a programmer in the role without any regard for what I was going through. I only found out later on it was the CEO who passed judgement since nobody would tell me who this person was that had doubts (I'm sure they were running scared). Even my gracious emails to the followers were never replied to after stating how I understood the situation and I would be open to other opportunities. I wasted all this time, energy and effort and being unemployed, it was a real blow.

    As expected, it's been over 7 months and it appears they still haven't hired for this role. I can only imagine why. Unethical, immoral and most likely a culture that's not pleasant. You decide for yourself if you want to risk it.
