Accounts Receivable Interview

Accounts Receivable
Aliso Viejo, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Quest Software in October 2010.

Interview Details – Typical two interviews. Met first with the manager, than the supervisor. Somewhat of a reverse order.
I was the first candidate they interviewed, they interviewed others after me. The whole process took about 5 weeks from when I had the first interview to the actual start date.

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was not an option.

Campaign Manager Interview

Campaign Manager
Aliso Viejo, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Quest Software in March 2011.

Interview Details – I received a call within 24 hours of submitting online. The recruiter was pleasant and managed the interview scheduling. The hiring manager and 2 others gave 1:1 interview, 2 in person and 1 phone interview. The people I interviewed with were very pleasant, they asked unique questions. One manager even took notes which made me feel heard and interested. I'm still going through the interview process and regardless if I land the job or not, I have respect for Quest and the culture they obviously work hard to preserve. Great job Quest!!

Very Easy Interview

Software Sales Interview

Software Sales
Dublin, OH

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Quest Software in May 2010.

Interview Details – Two interviews - first with hiring manager, second with hiring manager's boss.

First interview consisted of company overview and detailed description of the role and some basic questions about my experience, approach, etc. I also met with another team member for a few minutes to ask questions about manager, manager's style, typical day, etc.

Second interview was a pleasant conversation about my experience, why this company, etc. Explained to me that I would likely receive an offer.

Interview Question – What is your sales approach?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Company has a set pay level (base + commission) for each position. They refused to make any consolation to show they were extremely interested in me as a candidate - felt more like they were filling a chair. Company's recruiter told me hiring manager left a message that he "had to have me" on his team, but they didn't show this in their offer.

C# .NET Developer for Server Virtualization Interview

C# .NET Developer for Server Virtualization
Buffalo Grove, IL

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Quest Software in October 2009.

Interview Details – I had 2 phone interviews with Quest Software human resources people. The second phone interview came about one week after the first.

In the first phone interview they sprung a .NET test on me.

They were constantly telling me to read and understand their website for the interview with them. The website was http://www.vizioncore.com.

In the 3rd and final phone interview, a manager asked me questions that lasted for 5 minutes and that wasn't because I didn't have any answers. He only asked 3 questions.

No one got back to me for 2 weeks so I emailed one of the HR people. She told me I didn't get the job. I emailed back letting them know that they were unprofessional to not contact me and let me know as they said they would.

I don't recommend interviewing with Quest Software or any of its subsidiary companies such as Vizioncore. Very unprofessional!

Tech Support Role Interview

Tech Support Role
Maidenhead, England (UK)

I applied through other source - interviewed at Quest Software in December 2012.

Interview Details – Interview Details – I finished my interview for Technical Support Engineer in December

I was approached by a HR person on linkedin, had a phone conversation, then a Tech test and nterview with the hiring manager, and then support director .. finally I spent a half day with the support team.

Throughout the process, they seemed really interested in how my company does things, processes and KCS and such like, which I felt was a little odd.

Everything seemed to be really positive and I was promised feenback in a week...after a week I chased feedback..then a no thanks email.

I asked for feedback..and never heard from them again..

Considering that I had taken holiday and spent a half day with them watching the job..i was rather hoping for feedback on why i did not get the role.

Interview Question – how do you deal with conflict?   Answer Question
