    Senior Finance Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at AspenTech in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was scheduled through an external recruiter and was with 2 senior members of the Finance team. The first interviewer literally appeared to have ADD, he talked for 25 minutes about only himself and how poor the staff in his Finance organization are, then spent all of 5 minutes asking about my background with no detailed questions or going any further than my current job. Extremely disorganized and scattered brain type of leader who's jumpy professional career matches his odd personality. The second interviewer was an old school Finance guy that went over my resume line by line, very boring and dry personality. Neither one of those interviewers did a good job to describe the culture of Aspen Tech or try to put a positive spin on the role. I literally walked away thinking that Aspen Tech is a complete train wreck. Called my recruiter right way and told him that I would never work for those people and he should recommend them a good professional interviewing seminar.

    Senior Technical Support Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter. Phone interview with team lead. Later went in for In-person group interview with major people at Office. Almost 100% of questions were behavioral, relating to managing customers in difficult situations.

    You will have to make a presentation on a technical topic of your choice and you will ultimately present it to the group of people you interview with throughout the day.

    Interview Questions
    • None- all behavior questions. If you know barebones about tech. you won't have any issues and if you've had any real technical/customer service experience you'll be ok.The technical presentation threw me off initially but I listed to a technical podcast and put something together without issues.   Answer Question

    Instructional Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AspenTech.

    Interview Details

    I originally applied for the position via the Aspen website. I heard back roughly a little less than a month from HR asking for a quick phone interview to go overall the role. After the interview the recruiter said he would give his feedback to the hiring manager and depending upon their thoughts I would hear back. The next step was a phone interview with the hiring manager, he actually missed our scheduled time but quickly followed up via phone call and e-mail to reschedule. We talked for over an hour and it was a great conversation. I was brought on site about a week later and met about 4-5 people from the team for roughly 4 hours. Overall, it was a pretty fast moving interview process I was never taken off guard at any point. Most of the interview questions were extremely behavioral based (what management style you work best under, do you prefer working in a group or individually, do you like open office or cubicle seating,etc)

    Interview Questions
    • I was given an example of the instructional materials they create for the online training and asked what I would improve upon if I was working on it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    After the onsite visit I was given a verbal offer which was very nice compensation wise. I asked to negotiate salary and was told it was base pay based on the experience for the role. I accepted anyways because it was a pretty nice package in general. Once I accepted the verbal offer I was sent a huge packet with the official paperwork.

    Associate Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashua, NH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashua, NH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AspenTech in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted by email for a phone interview with senior manager. It was a 45 minute interview discussing general OOP and my resume. About two days later, I received an email to set up a skype interview with four different people (two group managers, one entry level engineer, HR) over Skype. Interview was not technical at all; It was actually quite astonishing.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any difficult questions if you know OOP. Most difficult for a non-programmer I suppose would be to describe pointers.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Salary was well below average for an entry-level chemical engineer and relocation was not offered.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashua, NH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AspenTech in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    There was a series of phone calls from managers in R&D with some technical questions.
    This was followed by a Skype interview with HR, 2 managers in R&D, and a "new-hire" from the year before. It's a very friendly, easy process. Make sure you have a good connection for the Skype interview, as a poor connection can make understanding lengthy questions, or people with heavy accents more difficult.

    Interview Questions
    • They will ask some questions regarding technical aspects of programming (depending on the position you're interviewing for).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation on salary, they offer the same package to everyone.
