    Senior Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southlake, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southlake, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Sabre in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    At first got a call from HR asking for my availability and scheduled a telephonic interview. After 3-4 days got response from HR saying that he got very good feedback from telephonic interview & want to setup a onsite interview or Skype/video call based on my comfort. I chose for on-site. Onsite interview is scheduled for 3 hrs and with 3 members separately. One from Business related, one from technical team and another is also a technical.

    Overall, it's a very good experience. Because, the HR whom I am talking to is very quick in giving response. He gave me best support to schedule interviews based on my comfort. I was informed that I am selected but yet to get an offer from them. They said they will be sending an offer to me this week.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't see any unexpected questions. Interview is mostly based on the depth of your technical skills, Agile methodology, Spring MVC, Spring Web Flow, Java Core concepts, Hibernate configurations, relationships in hibernate (one-to-may.many-to-many), Spring Injections, Design Patterns (Singleton), WebServices(cxf/Axis) etc.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was told in the last week that they got very good feed back from all the 3 interviewers and they selected. HR asked me about my current salary, benefits etc. Based on that he said he will get back to me with the offer. So, I am waiting for that. Will update again once I hear from them.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sabre in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a company recruiter via Linkedin and emailed resume. First contact via phone with hiring manager and then was called for onsite interview fairly quickly. Interviewed by manager and two other senior team members. Technical questions not too hard. They seemed to be looking to hire quickly and following onsite meeting received an offer within 48 hours.

    Reasons for Declining

    In all compensation + benefits did not justify the increased commute.

    Reservation Sales Agent/Call Center Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westlake, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westlake, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Sabre in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pros: The call center is located in Westlake which is not too far away from Dallas, Texas. The call center job starts off at $12 an hour in what looked like a clean atmosphere. The dress code seemed to be business casual and casual. The corporate villages have very interesting architecture. The small town of Westlake shows promise in that it could develop into a modern city.

    Cons: I felt the recruiter was disorganized and not completely truthful even though I managed to get an interview. I was interviewed by two apathetic female managers at the call center. I felt the interview did not go well. The 45 minute interview process was very tedious because they over-focused on questions related to "What would you do to handle an angry or disgruntled customer?" They also kept hinting that they had many angry customers. During the interview process I did not feel respected or comfortable. Another problem is that this call center is located near DFW Airport so you can expect a lot of traffic jams and pollution in the air.

    interviewed at Sabre in October 2012.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southlake, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southlake, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Sabre in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had Telephonic Interview, then met the Manager and another Developer face to face. The HR is very slow and will never respond to you call or email once the interview is over. There are too many people from Andhra Pradesh (India) who are not that professional. They would try to place their own people there. I think the management should take the decision instead of letting the people from offshore to decide.

    Interview Questions
    • Some of the questions were stupid and they guy who asked was expecting some stupid answer. The were expecting some Andhra guy instead of me.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    If you are not in the right group, there are lots of internal politics.
