Delivery Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Compuware in December 2013.
Interview Details – Started off with a couple of phone interviews. One from a recruiter, and one person from the program I was going to enroll in.
After the initial phone calls, I got brought in for a full day interview at the headquarters in Detroit. Where I met with many people from the team. For the morning, I was given a tour of the building (which is lovely), followed by a carousel style interview where I met with 6 different people. Interviews ranged from getting to know me, to a technical interview as well as an interview about my beliefs on customer service.
Overall, it was a fantastic experience.
Interview Question – While not unexpected, the toughest part of the interview was where we had to give a presentation about there APM product with using their website as the only source of information. The group size can vary however I was presenting to a group of 10 people which is nervous. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – From the interview process, I felt that I would have been really happy here. I had a tough choice between multiple offers and chose another company closer to my home

Very Difficult Interview
Guardian - APM Interview (Positive Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Compuware in January 2011.
Interview Details – Interview in 2011, consisted of 9 interviews before offers were made.
- 3 phone call interviews
- 6 in person interviews (During all day trip to HQ)
- 1 presentation (15 minutes) about Compuware Gomez software (During all day trip to HQ)
The in person interviews consisted mostly of logic puzzles, or repeating questions that had been previously asked. The presentation was the hardest, because you were required to "sell" and explain software that you had no knowledge of or documentation. I had a poor time understanding what the software did from reading the website alone, and thus did poor on the presentation.
After the presentation, there were 25 remaining candidates, 5 to be chosen.
The whole process took at least 2 months. I've never prepared and worked so hard just for an interview process. It was pretty heartbreaking to go so far and not get an offer. It was a good learning experience, but just know what you are getting yourself into. If you can come out alive, the rewards will set you up good for life.
