    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at BMC Software in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Since I am based abroad, all the process was conducted remotely. It started as an email exchange. Then there were phones interviews, followed by Skype interviews with senior management. That was followed by Skype interviews with peers. When that was completed, an email exchange for references took place and then background checks were done. That started the salary negotiations.

    Senior Manager, Global Mobility Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BMC Software.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was quick. From the phone screens to the follow ups by the recruiter and staffing specialist. The communication was prompt, detailed and professional. Due to remote locations for many of the interview team, the interviews came in a variety of forms such as phone interview, in-person and video conference. My interviews consisted of 6 individuals, which I consider reasonable compared to past experience at other companies, that said I would suggest reducing the rounds to speed up the process.

     I was impressed with the team I met, with their area of expertise and wealth of knowledge. My perceptions of the team left me with the impression this was a team performing with integrity.

    Interview Questions
    • Provide an example where you made a new discovery in your past experience that may have had to do with company culture, business practice and/or challenging business groups, what did you discover, how did you respond and what was the lesson(s) learned. How did this experience shape who you are?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The offer process was surprisingly easy and direct, more than fair. I was impressed with BMC’s concern to ensure this was a favorable outcome for both parties.

     My advice is to effectively demonstrate the value you can contribute to the organization, look for win-win solutions, yes it nice to boost your salary but more importantly have an idea of the type of team/people you want to surround yourself with.
