    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Plano, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CA Technologies in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The initial set up of the interview took about 3-4 days and then I was interviewed with 3 managers whom I needed approval from all 3 in order to get the position.

    All three were very friendly, perky, and excited to discuss the job, careers, my goals, and ambitions.

    The hiring process took about 2 - 3 weeks. I was immediately offered the position approx. 3 days after the interview but after that the contracts and getting the background checks took a very long time but despite the delays the people who I spoke with/worked with were very friendly and happy to work with me.

    Interview Questions
    • No hard questions as such but basic ones such as - how do you deal with stress, how do you solve a problem, how do you deal with conflict in the work place, name something you've gone above and beyond for, what books have you read, why CA, why you, etc.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CA Technologies in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    All interviewers were extremely courteous and well spoken. All interviews including the phone interview started on time and the interviewers answered all the follow-up/feedback questions.

    Initially a phone screen took place and then I was called in for an onsite interview. I spoke to four people separately for about 30 mins or so with each person. The questions were mostly related to the work experience and background. They did ask a few technical questions and I answered all but one.

    I was informed of their decision to extend an offer one week after the interview. I liked the work culture and the environment based on what I saw on the day of the interview and accepted the offer.

    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Herndon, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at CA Technologies in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very straight forward... The hiring manager asked my job experience to date. They asked about programs that I had developed. One interviewer asked for peers and previous managers to speak to. My favorite question was what management styles I preferred that yielded most successful work environment. There was no surprises and everyone I met seemed very straight forward... Something that I should of caught was every interviewer said CA was going through a change and that this would be an opportunity to shine within a new regime of management. However, the change never stopped. Within my five years at CA I have had three CEOs and five CMOs... good times.
