    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BMC Software.

    Interview Details

    Only ask basic behavior questions. Have waited 3 months without feedback. That's why I think I have lost the chance to get that job. However, I do think BMC is a good company because they just become private again and have more flexibility in the development direction. Besides, Texas is a great place to live.

    Thank you for your feedback. Typically, the University recruiting process runs a little longer due to the timing of career events at different schools.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BMC Software.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager was very easy to communicate with, we had a surprisingly candid discussion, and unfortunately I did not have the skills he was looking for. The positive takeaway from the interview, was that he gave me positive constructive criticism on my resume.

    Good feedback - like many companies, we are trying to find the optimum number of interviews to ensure both the candidate and the hiring team have a chance to assess one another.

    Technical Support Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    I was part of an acquisition into BMC. However as a Manager I had a large amount of latitude in the questions I was able to ask within the appropriate legal guidelines. The time between offer and start date was usually 3 weeks minimum, and sometimes that proved to be too long for some people and BMC would lose them in the interim.

    The hire process was a great excellent process. Very fast, timely and went into 3 different interviews. I first had a phone call brief interview asking me questions on how interested I was.
