Business Development Representative Interview

Business Development Representative

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at BMC Software in August 2013.

Interview Details – The interview started by having a screening done by a recruitment individual from the Houston, TX Corporate Office. After speaking with them at length and understanding that I was intelligent, the individual conducted a more in-depth questioning about my background. Any tech experience that I had, where I felt the industry was heading, etc. From there I was told I would have more phone interviews, (had a total of 3) and then was flown to my job sites office location. I proceeded to do a team interview there (2 on 1) and also was required to do a 15 minute presentation on who the company was, its main message, and why customers should choose the company. This presentation was told to me 1 week prior to my interview. After the interview I was shown around the office and given time to ask others in the role their perceptions, feelings, etc.

Interview Question – The most difficult part was the 15 minute presentation. I was told that I did not need to prepare materials , i.e. powerpoint, whiteboard, slides, etc. but it was clear that my interviewers had actually expected that.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – My negotiation was different as I had competing offers already on the table.

Technical Support Manager Interview

Technical Support Manager

Interviewed at BMC Software

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.

Interview Question – I was not interviewed for this job.   Answer Question
