    Principal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southlake, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Sabre (Southlake, TX).

    Interview

    Exhausting and long. They are very thorough and it took over 4 months from the time I got the first interview until I got the offer and then they wanted me to start as soon as possible. I had around 10 interviews (different people) and travelled to headquarters twice. Ultimately it was worth the wait but it was not a quick process. Now from the inside there are several people that have to approve that make the process VERY slow and difficult.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of specific questions about previous experience as it relates to the job. Expected.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Sabre.

    Interview

    Interviewed by one person. Questions were just standard C++ questions, nothing easy, nothing super hard. One tricky question but otherwise very standard. Very easy going interviewer as well.
    As long as you knew object oriented programming, inheritance, polymorphism, operator overloading, it was good.

    Principal, Airline Solutions Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Sabre (Southlake, TX).

    Interview

    HR phone screening, followed by the hiring Director interview, met with several other team members, progressed to the Vice President and finally the CMO. All of the interviews were one on one. Based on the behaviors (checking emails, text messages, etc.) during two of the sessions it was very distracting and unprofessional. Sabre HR needs to put their mid and senior management through a basic interview training class to ensure that standards are maintained to provide a fair and equitable platform for the candidates as well as the hiring executives.

    Interview Questions

    • Situational, what if questions very hypothetical and also without any deep knowledge of the industry so where not very insightful.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiate salary and time off up front. There is some latitude within the defined ranges for the company and equivalent positions.

    Good interview over all

    Principal Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Sabre.

    Interview

    Initial interview with department Vice President, lasted over an hour, although he spent most of his time checking emails, text messages on his cell phone. In fact, he took a personal call during the interview. Overall a non-professional experience. Showed lack of maturity and lack of respect towards the candidate.

    Second interview with C-Level Executive was more conversational in nature and focused on validating the candidate's experience and application to the organization and goals.

    Interview Questions

    • Vice President interview was Silicon Valley style with few questions related to candidate's experience, more focused on "what would you do..." to flesh out the candidate's strategic thinking process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Able to negotiate salary and additional personal time off

    Interview

    Initial interview was conducted in two parts, first by the hiring manager and then by an HR representative. The hiring manager asked some detailed questions regarding sales process and overall philosophy behind the approach. Additional drill down questions were asked about different steps in the process with some being situational based. The time spent with HR was more about the company and culture of the organization with a few baseline questions regarding background.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were overly difficult, it was just a matter of explaining in a lot of detail what your sales process involved.   Answer Question
