    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at NIKSUN in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter-led opportunity. Prescreening interview with Vice President Sales, background questionnaire completion with HR followed by panel interview. Panel included sales leadership, sales operations, operations, CFO and HR. Interview conducted over video. Successful completion of that stage led to 1:1 interview with CEO and presentation of 90 day plan with Sales leadership. Company is growing with many open positions but selection process is tough.

    Interview Questions
    • What was your most significant hiring and termination experience; please provide details surrounding why, circumstances and rationale for indicating it was the most significant.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Regimented negotiation process. Follows former Cisco model (all sales leadership team members are former 10+ year Cisco veterans). Plans and quotas are decidedly growth oriented. If you're not 100% confident in your own abilities - probably not a good place to apply.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at NIKSUN in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    There were several callback interviews which went well and I received an offer. When I tried to negotiate a slightly better salary, the offer was immediately rescinded. I didn't demand a better salary. I simply asked if the company would be willing to consider it, so be forewarned that any attempt at salary negotiation will result in an offer being rescinded.

    I didn't decline. The offer was rescinded when I tried to negotiate a slightly better salary. Though I may have declined it anyway as I had another offer.
