    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Qlik.

    Interview Details

    I first spoke with HR to get basic interview, logistics and paperwork. Next I was asked to create an application using the QlikView software. I had three days. On the third day I had an interview with the VP of Services and several of his senior managers. I was asked to present the application I had created. I fielded questions from everyone over the next hour of so.

    Negotiation Details
    This phase was a little disorganized. I had discussed salary numbers with the VP of Services but when the offer came it was for substantially less. I was unhappy with this seeming bait and switch. I found out it was because the President of the Americas at that time was a bit of a character and didn't like the deal his VP had struck. I almost had to decline, but they came back with a second offer that was a little better than the first numbers we had discussed. I was happy and understood that sometimes politics can obstruct progress.

    Named Account Manager (NAM) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Qlik in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with HR as a first step. That session went really well and I was moved on to the hiring manager. The hiring manager was late by 15 minutes and then rescheduled twice that day . The process was delayed by 2 hours. Once the interview started, it was very clear to me he had the wrong resume. The interview ended 30 minutes later. Clearly he was looking for a person from a competitor.

    Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Radnor, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Radnor, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Qlik in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    -I networked to get in touch with the Inside Sales Manager where I expressed my interest in working for Qlik.
    -We arranged a phone call where I spent roughly 30-45 minutes describing some of my previous work and my desire to work for Qlik.
    -The Inside Sales Manager gave me some content(homework) to learn over the weekend (phone interview was a Friday) which we would discuss at an on-site interview the following Monday.
    -3 days after the phone interview I went on-site to discuss my previous work in more detail, present a demo based on the information I was given prior, role play a sales call based on an article I was given prior, and talk with a current member of the inside sales team.
    -Approximately 2-3 days later I received an invitation for a Skype interview (the whole sales org was training in another state for the remainder of that week) where I had a third interview with the VP of Inside Sales. During this interview I discussed my previous work & future goals.
    -I was told then, verbally, that they would likely be extending me an offer, which they did less than a week later.
    -The interview process beginning to end was less than a week and I received a formal offer within two weeks of my initial contact.

    Interview Questions
    • The process was straight forward and they questions were all related to previous work I had done. These guys are straight to the point and do not waste your time or theirs with odd behavioral questions. I can only speak for the sales channel, I'm not sure if this is applicable to other channels within the company.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was told what the starting salary would be and what additional compensation would include which I felt was competitive and in line with my expectations. I was getting married a week after my start date and they accommodated my honeymoon time off request without using any of my vacation days which I felt was a nice gesture.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newton, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newton, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Qlik in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from the hiring manager directly. Quick phone call was set up the following day. The conversation over the phone had few questions about my resume, reason for leaving the current employer and availability. I was then called on-site where I interviewed with three members of the team and hiring manager himself. At this point, I should have got their decision but they had me talk to several other members in Europe. I provided references including the existing employer, writing samples and completed a mini-project for them. When I completed all the deliverables at my end, they kept me on a hold for a long time. I had another offer and had to know the decision. They could have been much more organized and direct in the hiring process.

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Qlik in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very Swedish (according to them), multiple interviews, 3-4 asking you the same questions over and over and then they meet and discuss what they thought of you. Pro to this is that they may give you tips on what you did good and what to improve on in the next interview. Con, you have no idea what they think of you and how good your chances are of moving forward with the company till they call you and give you an offer.

    Interview Details

    The team is very sharp and seem like a great group to work with. My interview process was very long, seven interviews. After the seventh interview, I was told someone did not think I was a fit but let me continue interviewing. It was a big waste of everyone's time and effort.

    Sales Productivity Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winnersh, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winnersh, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Qlik in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Headhunted for the position by former colleague seeking members of new team. Met with her on the Friday and we both confirmed it was a go-er, then I had 1 face-to-face and 4 other Exec interviews (on telephone, between 30-90 minutes) & 1 HR telephone interview (60 minutes) during the following week. Received my verbal offer from HR the next Monday, received and accepted written offer Tuesday. Whole process complete in 7 working days. Received a 'Welcome to QlikTech' card a few days later. Started on my chosen start date two weeks later. Faultless.

    It's culture and policy to ensure that every key stakeholder has a say in the hiring process. If anyone says no - and it's explored and decided it's a proper no - then they don't hire. So everyone has 'met' and accepted the new hire.

    Interviews were all in-depth discussions with equal time given to communicating the strategy & objectives of the company & the role, and understanding my suitability. So I fully understood what they needed and could therefore respond much more fully. Each was an intense conversation where we both ended with a complete knowledge of the other's requirements & inputs. Not the usual list of 'clever' or 'standard' questions, but a completely relevant, thorough conversation which did the job perfectly. Including the HR interview - it was intelligent and insightful.

    Interview Questions
    • There was nothing designed to catch you out - everything asked was relevant and intelligent. It was genuinely a business discussion which left both parties with a view on whether this was a person they could each work with.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated on several elements - in particular I wanted a higher base salary in line with my previous role. The discussion was very quick & friendly - they took my requirements to a decision maker and came back with a different offer the next day. They couldn't give me exactly what I wanted but they were creative with the offer and despite a base salary lower than my existing role I was still so impressed, and confident that the performance bonus would be paid, I accepted it. The process was managed by HR and was friendly and efficient.
