    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Autonomy.

    Interview Details

    I initially interviewed for a different position, but was referred to this one at the end of the process as the interviewers thought I'd be a better fit. There were several rounds of phone interviews including an online proctored quiz.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Autonomy in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was quite smooth. I was contacted through email, then set up with a in person interview soon after. I interviewed in person at the office, and they mostly asked about my interests, career desires, and my skill not on my resume.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I was almost tricked out of negotiating. The HR called me and asked if im interested in "$xxx" salary. I asked her about the negotiating with a manager and she made it seem like it was a very long process and that they needed to send the offer soon.

    QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Autonomy in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got a phone call one week with HR from Boston as a screener, talked with the head of QA from Chicago for about an hour the next week. The following week, I was contacted by the Boston HR rep and told to contact the Chicago HR rep for future questions. A couple days after that, I was offered an on-site interview, where they flew me out (expenses paid) and I was interview by a software engineer and 3 QA engineers based on background, skills assessment coding wise, and more stuff on my resume. I was then set up with 2 interviews with 2 separate VPs of departments. 3 months after my last call and bi-weekly contact with the HR rep, I still have heard no word from the hiring manager, despite promises that I would get a call for an offer each time I contacted by phone. Unprofessional to leave me out in the blue after 5 months of contact.

    Interview Questions

    They never called back after investing a lot of time into me.
