    Senior Software Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Concur in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was made aware of the position by a recruiter from a staffing agency I worked with. First step in the interview process was a short (30 minute) discussion with a manager in the group I was being considered for. It was fairly technical in nature, there was some discussion about basic programming concepts and at the end I was asked a coding question. I simply had to walk the interviewer through the solution without writing any code.
    After my initial phone screen I was invited for an on-site interview in Bellevue. Three interviews were scheduled and they were all fairly typical coding/skill questions. Interviews were with a senior developer , the same manager I spoke with before and another manager in the group. All asked a variety of coding and SQL questions (of varying difficulty), but overall the interviews were very low stress and pleasant. After the three interviews I was told I would be let know of next steps.
    The last step, after passing the 1-1 interviews, was a Skype interview with the GM of the group. It was supposed to be similar in format to the 1-1 interviews I had, but due to Skype problems on my end we ended up talking on the phone. This was a fairly technical interview as well and once again I was told to walk the interviewer through a problem without writing any code.
    I was contacted by the internal Concur recruiter the very next day with their decision.

    Overall it was a very pleasant experience and because of my tight deadlines Concur moved very fast from the initial screen to their final offer. I ended up going with another place, but would strongly consider Concur again in the future.

    Concur's offer was very attractive but I decided that a different company in Seattle would be a better fit for what I was looking for in a new job

    I have an interview with a recruiter. She asked me questions which are easy and only takes 15 minutes. Those question are just behavior questions. She is nice, but I think the reason I did not get the offer is because for some questions I did not answer clear.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Concur.

    Interview Details

    Standard interview protocol. 30 minute initial phone screen with recruiter, followed by 30 minute phone interview with hiring manager. Both interviews, were straight forward with information about the position and my experience. Strongly felt both interviews went very well. so was expecting onsite interview. Received call from recruiter next day that I was no longer in the running. Prior to the call, noticed an unsolicited review of my LinkedIn profile from an unknown employee at this company. Not sure what they were looking for, but my profile is the same as the resume submitted, so no surprises. Maybe they wanted to see a picture?

    Senior Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Concur in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied online through LinkedIn. A couple weeks later I received an email from a recruiter to schedule a screening interview. The recruiter was somewhat difficult to work with. It took an additional 2 weeks just to get the screening interview scheduled and completed. This screening the was mostly going over my resume and experience.

    2 more weeks later I was contacted for an initial 30 min phone screen by an actual developer. It took about a month and a half to get to this point. The screening was pretty straightforward. I don't remember any overly complex questions. About a week later I was contacted to schedule an onsite interview.

    The onsite interview was in their Bellevue office. The schedule was 3 - 1hr interviews with developers and 3 - 30min interviews with Managers and a PM. I arrived in reception and started the day at 10am. The interviewers were nice and friendly. The interviews themselves were more of discussions while solving some coding problems rather than just observing. Questions were somewhat comprehensive, but not super difficult. One question on database design. One question on algorithms, etc. The weirdest thing is they didn't offer me a lunch break nor give me any food for the next 4 1/2 hours. It was difficult towards the end of the day without having any food. I was just handed off from one interviewer to the next within the same conference room. The day ended close to 3pm.

    The 30 minute interviews were not very technical at all. It mostly was a question/answer session by other members of the team to get an idea of how they work and the culture. The company is big on hiring people who fit their culture.

    It took about a week and a half to extend an offer after the interview. The recruiter was overall helpful, but I thought it was strange how long the process took compared to other larger companies I have interviewed at.

    Interview Details

    Getting an in-person interview takes a few phone calls, but don't be discouraged. If you do get an in-person interview then what you're really being evaluated for is culture-fit, not so much skills.

    Marketing Manager, Senior Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Concur.

    Interview Details

    Initially the recruiter reached out to me and set up some time for me to talk with the hiring manager who kept the interview short but concentrated on what the role was and what I was looking for. The hiring manager was very friendly and knew what she was talking about.

    Next, they called me in for a series of in-person interviews and several over the phone. This went pretty well and concentrated on what I knew about the company and specific experiences I had (e.g. examples of campaigns I've worked on, success metrics, etc.). Interviewers included immediate members of the marketing team and several c-level executives. I left feeling pretty good about the interview and fit.

    About a week later I received a follow-up email from the recruiter who noted that the team wanted me in for a third round in person with more c-level types and in more of a panel interview. I was excited for this and provided him with various days and times that would work for me. After another week I didn't hear anything back so I reached out to the recruiter asking him what the status was. He followed up saying that they had decided to move forward with an internal applicant but said nothing else.

    Not a great way to handle an interview. It definitely left a bad taste in my mouth regarding the company and specifically how they handle interviews.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Concur.

    Interview Details

    The interview process involved several people from my prospective dept, but matched their values of wanting to hire the most talented people and the right people to fill their positions. Communications through the process was excellent - the recruiter kept me updated along the way.

    Negotiation Details
    Concur has set programs and policies and offers a competitive compensation package. There is little room to negotiate, but I felt my questions and requests were heard and addressed.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Eden Prairie, MN
    Anonymous Employee in Eden Prairie, MN
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Concur in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview with recruiter was typical interview for sales job. Talk about your sales methodology, what's my selling style, etc. Recruiter said she'd let me know next or following day if I was moving forward. Two weeks later she finally writes back that I will go to next round and meet with 3 sales directors. A week later after some scheduling conflicts I go to the office a meet with the 1 sales director who isn't out of town that week. He's not the hiring manager, doesn't seem familiar with my resume at all. Interview was 20 minutes long. He asked me 3 questions. 1) why do I want to leave my current job, and 2) did it concern be I didn't have B2B sales experience. 3) What are your questions. Basically I spoke for about 3 of the 20 minutes and listened to him answer my questions. For real..It was so strange and uncomfortable. I had a more professional interview when i got my first job at 15.

    I got an email the next day saying thanks, but no thanks, moving on with candidates with B2B experience. OKAY, so why did I was hours of my time with a phone interview, prepping for 1:1 interview, etc.? I wasn't asked a single situational question, nor any personal/professional questions about myself, or my sales background, or how I sell. That was very suprising. Interviewer didn't take any notes (nor did he even bring a pen or paper).

    Interview Questions
    • The sales director asked me 2 questions in 20 minutes. I asked 5. Lesson, don't ask more questions than your interviewer.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Concur in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my application electronically, I was contacted for a phone screening. After answering a number of experience related questions, the recruiter asked what commercial product experience I had, I had B2B and B2G product experience and Concur is a B2B company. Then he asked what mobile product experience I had - none. The recruiter quickly ended the call. I had to contact him a week later to receive the rejection. Neither of these "qualifying" requirements were listed on the job description.
