    Software Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Birmingham, AL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, AL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at EBSCO in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter, but at the time, wasn't sure I was in the market. The time between the initial contact and the ultimate interview arrangement was a few months, which was perfect, as this period encompassed Christmas and New Years. The interview included team leads as well as the manager, which I thought was a plus. It also included a quiz on database queries/structure, which I also thought was a plus, and showed that the company was serious about getting the right person for the particular job.

    BI Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Birmingham, AL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, AL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at EBSCO in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process was fine and quick. The job inself was not defined and expectations were set by folks who did not know a thing about the technology. The management was totally out of touch with technology. The company retains employees for a long time and it's like a mafia of who know who.
