FE Interview

FE
New York, NY

I applied through other source and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Argent Software in January 2013.

Interview Details – It is short knowing that there is a high turn over in this company.. I have already seen 2 engineers and 2 sales person quit in 6 weeks.

Interview Question – No structure in the training process. I been doing technology for over 20 years. The owner is off the charts and the money is not worth it. If you look up Micro Management in the dictionary his picture would show up. There is not future.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Lies

Sales Interview

Sales
New York, NY

The process took a day - interviewed at Argent Software in June 2010.

Interview Details – Be very careful when interviewing with this company. You'll probably get an offer after taking a short online quiz, but the salesforce is routinely "axed" and then rebuilt. The product is decent but there is a lot of competition for just network monitoring.

Interview Question – You're better off just listening and let the interviewer do all the talking.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. If you need the money, take the offer otherwise keep looking.

Sales Interview

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Argent Software in April 2011.

Interview Details – This was seriously the weirdest interviewing experience I have EVER undergone. I submitted my resume online, and received a call the next day from the "VP of Sales". Well, actually, that person was also the CEO, CIO and pretty much anything else he deems himself--but I didn't know that at the time.

This "interview" took place over the phone at about 9PM on a Sunday night, due to the interviewer being located in Asia. It consisted largely of him repeating stuff that's on the website and trying to sell me on the company. I don't recall him asking me even the first question. That already had my weirdo-radar tingling, and then he blows me out of the water with this golden nugget: the first 90 days, sales people are paid $xxx a day. Then the next 90 days is paid at half that amount, the assumption being that you'd have a pipeline by then.
The "pay per day" business really threw me for a loop. What is this, McDonald's? He went on to explain that they have "online training" which I would be expected to complete, and that it should take 20 or so hours to master the material, then I'd have to pass a test at the end. I dutifully took down the login information, if nothing else, because I was curious. When I looked at this "training", I had to laugh. It was stuff ANY first year inside sales person would know cold, and frankly I found it a little insulting. I very nearly took the test that same night he called me (which by the way was a Sunday, well after business hours) just to make a point, but I figured that was rude.

The second I got off the phone, I came here to Glassdoor and got an earful. All the truthful comments on this site really clarified and confirmed the weird vibes I had gotten, and helped me decide quite promptly that this place wasn't for me.

Reason for Declining – I thought he was joking about the comp plan and "structure" of the company.

Senior Field Engineer Interview

Senior Field Engineer

The process took 4 days - interviewed at Argent Software in August 2010.

Interview Details – Sent off a resume and took the auto-mailed test on the same day, right before bed. Got an email from the CTO minutes later asking if I was still up since he's in Hong Kong. All the calls were late at night, but it was pretty straight-forward and personal. Everyone I spoke with was very nice and down-to-earth, and I especially enjoyed my talk with their CEO. Really, it was the four people I spoke to who convinced me to take the job.

Interview Question – What are RAID 0 and 1? Which one is better & why?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The CTO in the initial call brought up salary and I listed my range. It was a little higher than their range, but the commission and the opportunities for writing knowledge base articles pushed them over the top. Besides, I love travel and I consider that a big bonus.
