    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions

    Guardian - APM Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Detroit, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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.

    Presentation tips:
    Make a slide, covering each software under the Gomez package.
    Practice presenting in front of real people
    Make sure not to talk like a robot
