I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Sabre in October 2014.
I applied Sr. operation research analyst position via online (sabre webpage). They called me back 2 month later and we had three phone interviews. Interview questions were quite difficult. They asked many high level C++ questions and I could not answer correctly.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sabre (Southlake, TX).
The application to interview process was straightforward. Received a call from in-house recruiter as an initial interest screen and then a callback the next day to set up an in-person interview about 2-weeks in advance. 2 panel, 3-person interviews using standard behavioral questions. The entire interview process was underwhelming. The hiring manager and next level up were late and seemed distracted throughout the process.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sabre.
Handled as a panel interview. Questions focus on resource management, planning and tracking experience. T&I management and department budgeting were also critical areas. Went through 1st round of individual interviews, second round of panel, third round of management interviews before final negotiations. Final negotiations went several rounds as HR was determined to negotiate my price down. I had to stick to my numbers over several weeks before finally getting what I wanted.
- What failure have you regretted most in your career? Answer Question
HR picked a number and stuck to it. I walked. They finally came back with a new number. I increased mine. We settled on my number.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sabre.
More or less 1-way interview which did not allow for the candidate to ask questions. 100% of interview was over phone. Would have preferred some face time with hiring manager as well as VP. Communication was limited due to 3rd party being involved. Company need to do better in this area
- Not given the whole picture of the situation prior to accepting the offer. Would have preferred to understand the situation better as well provide thorough understanding of skillset Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Sabre.
Applied online. Helps to know people on the inside. If you can find someone inside the company to get your resume to hiring manager, the better. You still have to apply online though. Interview was basically behavioral. Pretty easy interview process. Some technical positions might have to do some white board programming.
Make sure you get everything in writing.

I applied online. I interviewed at Sabre.
The interview was face to face using technology. I was taken to a mulitmedia room so I could have a face to face interview with two future team members from another country. The questions were difficult and you have to be prepared to listen carefully since English is their second (or third) language. I had just the one interview and was offered a position.
- I was asked to describe a time that I had a conflict with another employee. This type of question can go badly if you have not prepared ahead of time 1 Answer
They made an offer and I accepted. However, I would recommend that you negotiate for additional time off. As a seasoned professional, I should have had more than 15 days of PTO per year - this includes floating holidays, vacation days and sick days.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sabre (Washington, DC).
Interview process can be lengthy. Typically begins with a Sabre recruiter contacting the perspective employee. This person doesn't traditionally conduct an actual interview but mainly acts as a facilitator to set-up an interview with the appropriate hiring manager. Interview styles vary across teams and managers but they are typically looking for a skill set the organization doesn't already posses. So accentuating skills outside those standard and customary for the given position will go a long way.
- Interview questions are fairly standard and vary depending on the hiring manager and department. However be wary of hidden meanings, such as are you free to travel 25% of the time which typically means 75% of the time. Are you free to work evening and weekends as necessary, i.e. on call 24/7 even during paid time off or hospitalizations. Answer Question
Negotiations are poor. They have a static offer and they remain fairly close to what is extended
- Accepted Offer
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Sabre.
