Intranet Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Richmond, BC (Canada)

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sage North America in August 2012.

Interview Details – Approached colleagues in company with questions about posted position I was interested in. Series of quick phone calls where another position was offered for consideration. 2 followup interviews with the hiring manager. Not a lot of background or skills checking occurred as my colleagues were able to attest to my skill set. Total turnaround time was one month.

Interview Question – Explain direct or related experience you've had with managing a site of this nature.   Answer Question

Director Marketing Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Sage North America.

Interview Details – applied online, got to phone interview. This happened twice with three month interval: first got excluded for not knowing a specific software for marketing automation, Eloqua. The second time the job posting appeared, the Eloqua requirement had been dropped from an otherwise identical job posting. Second time got excluded for not having had direct management experience.

Easy Interview

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sage North America.

Interview Details – Because I got a foot in the door through a recommendation, the hiring process was pretty easy. I had one interview and I was hired on the spot. I'm not sure how typical this would be. HR was very organized with follow up and set up.

Interview Question – "Tell me about yourself" is always important to answer well in a compelling way.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate because I was happy with what I was offered. In hindsight, I could have negotiated for more, because they were clear that I was the right fit.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Richmond, BC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Sage North America in January 2010.

Interview Details – A short phone call to determine that I'm a real person (no hard questions), then an in-office interview.
Iterviewers were very professional and nice, most of the interview was the usual "describe your accomplishments" and a little surprise in the form of "take 10 minutes, write a short computer program on the whiteboard, which is supposed to demonstrate your abilities".

Interview Question – You have 10 minutes, to write a short computer program of your choice, to demonstrate your abilities best.   Answer Question

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Sage North America in June 2009.

Interview Details – Internal promotion. The typical growth path is to go from taking orders and knowing promotions to sales.

Interview Question – How would you deal with problems or issues?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The salary is standard. I could only negotiate to a level II (one up from level I) because I have 6 years at this company. Still, my new base of $52000 is better than what I was earning before. The new job also has over $25,000 in bonus.
