    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • "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.
