Technical Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at JDA Software.

Interview Details – I received referral from an employee for an open position. An interview with an HR rep and a lengthy application was required. Then interviews with two more people from the department. Most of the people are very friendly and helpful. The company was fair and the hiring process proceeded as I expected.

Interview Question – Technical interview was specific and detailed. Software experience was reviewed by an experienced professional, not HR.   Answer Question
