    Software Developer Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Qualys in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted after applying for one of their jobs. They started out with a phone interview, then scheduled an in person interview. I went through 6 or 7 people and ended with 2 coding challenges and 1 database challenge (this was for a database related development position).

    The CTO was cool, the interviewer was very professional, the coding challenges mostly related to the work. I'm glad I went through the process.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Qualys in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was blindsided with a full phone interview that was earlier advised to be just an initial screening call. Interviewer doesn't seem too professional. Doesn't listen. Interviewer seems more interested in giving criticism remarks rather than observing. I have answered each question well with logical support but was told I do not qualified with because I don't sound comfortable enough. I wonder who can be comfortable after being asked with ridiculous non related questions. Interviewer advised me he would recommend my profile to the BD department instead as I would qualify there but as expected interviewer did not keep his words. Thought I was applying for a high school summer job. I question the integrity of Qualys.

    Sales Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Qualys.

    Interview Details

    Having been screened on the phone for an hour with the the director of sales, and then being brought in for an interview with several people was not walk in the park. Having made it to the final round, one would think that there would be a modicum of professionalism. Communication post interview was pretty much non-existent.

    QA Engineer 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 Qualys in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Did a phone interview with the manager.Explained my strengths and weakness and what I can bring to the position.Wasn't very clear on what exactly the job requires.Was asked to come onsite

    Had three interviews
    a)2i QA engineers quizzed me on various SQL questions(one of my weaknesses..so didn't do that well)
    b)2 developers quizzed on various Junit related questions and API related questions.At this point I realized the job position didn't meet my qualification and I kind of lost interest.Also one interviewer was extremely rude when I didn't answer some basic question from his view point.I had made it clear in my phone interview what I was bringing to the table.Guess the manager should have communicated to the interviewer.
    c)1:1 interview with the same person whom I had phone interview with.I kind of explained him that this position only needs 20% of my strengths and other things I will have to pick up on the job.

    Overall,the interview experience was bad-I expect the interviewers to be humble about the questions they ask and if the interviewee is not meeting their expectations,it's not end of the world and should be treated as such.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Qualys in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Group of six took the interview. Getting a interview is tough now a days and setting such a scene is really an act of a genius. Already tense and it makes matters worse. Taking on 6 minds at a time. Asked about networking, unix and yes there were seven different thoughts about a question. Not a professional way to take an interview.
