    Interview

    first recruiter interview for cover general questions ...etc and then an off line coding test required you finished within certain time. and last one was 5 hours on site interview, The person interviewed you not necessary will be the person you are going to work with. Ariba hiring process depends the need of the entire engineer team. The bad thing about this-- you don't know what end about you going to do. and recruiter over promise the job functions end up is very boring job

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ariba (Atlanta, GA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by HR to check my interest in a position. After, a call with the hiring manager was scheduled via phone. Very standard questions were asked along my interest in the role and company. Next was the in person interview with three team members of about an hour each. Questions were fairly thoughtful and targeted based on my experience and what they were looking for. Overall, nice people and fairly quick process. Neutral experience.

    Customer Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Ariba (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    The HR representative was extremely communicative and checked in all the time to let me know if there were any updates. My first impression was that it was a great company where one could grow, though there were a few things that turned out to be not true. However, the initial interview with the recruiter was the most pleasant and friendly. The second interview with the team leads was standard. The third interview with upper management was very impersonal and cold. Upper management seemed to be going through the motions and was not genuinely interested in being part of the process.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't many difficult or unexpected questions for this interview, but they were extremely focused on how well you adapt to technology and learn new programs.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no room for negotiation. It was extremely disappointing. I took an $8,000 a year pay-cut thinking it was for the short-term, when it wasn't.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ariba.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter after submitting my resume online. They contacted very quickly and did a pre-assessment. After that call interviews with team members were scheduled. They scheduled 4 or 5 meetings with potential colleagues. After this first round there was dialog among the team then I was passed on round 2 with the team managers. After I interviewed with the team managers there was more deliberation for a week or two before I was called back. During this time I maintained good contact with the recruiter - communicating constantly.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a time when you monitored the system and caught an error in advance.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They asked early on what I was looking for. We were on the same page from the beginning so the offer was not one I needed to counter.
