    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GXS in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The overall process took less than 2 weeks but the interviews were very basic, nothing challenging. It began with an initial recruiter screen, mainly to see if there was a fit salary-wise. This was followed by a phone screen with the hiring manager and then a half day of on-site face-to-face interviews. People seemed to like to talk about themselves so I let them...

    Senior Software Engineersiness Systems Integrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Latham, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Latham, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GXS in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    They are very inexperienced at interviewing. I left with the assumption I did not have a chance of getting the position. Everything is done through a Staffing Firm. The first interview was with a group of 5. I was asked about 3 questions from each of them about my previous experiences and theoretical questions like how I would deal with certain situations. The entire experience was very odd; it was not friendly at all. Many of my answers to their questions, about my Java experience or if I knew what certain technical things are or do, were given responses like "We have no clue either" or "Yeah, that doesn't even exist". It just felt like a lot of character testing.

    No negotiation phase. In such an economy there is little to no negotiation room with entry level positions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at GXS in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    The company first ask me a few questions on the phone. Then schedule a time and date to come in for a 1 on 1 interview. The interview consists of several questions related in the field I was trying to go into. It also included a drug screening process and a back ground check. The people that I spoke with and seen seemed like the type of people I could work with and get along with.

    Interview Details

    To be fair, a friend recommended me. The interview was very easy because they really needed people then. Talked with 5 people by the time it was done. Went quick.

    Not sure if you'd have the same experience today, but the Austin, Tx group is a great group. Miss it a little bit actually.
