Manager Interview

Manager
Winnersh, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sage UK Ltd..

Interview Details – 2 rounds of interviews. 1st with the Senior Management and then the final round with the Head of Department.

The 1st interview was a scenario-based interview and touches everything from around what the role entails. All in all, it was a tough interview, but not rocket science if you know the job/ role.

2nd interview was slightly more formal and covering all aspects of soft-skills mainly and HR related questions.

Interview Question – How do you control/ handle a situation where the consultants think they know more than everyone else?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Company was willing to negotiate. Basically I told the company what bracket I was looking at and they matched it.

Very Easy Interview

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Sage UK Ltd. in May 2012.

Interview Details – Shortest and least professional interview I have ever attended. The very first question about my current salary revealed that they thought a "competitive salary" was one which was 20-30% below what I'm earning now! A recent review of local salaries for my experience/qualifications in the IT industry indicated that I was above the average, but not massively so. When I pointed this out there was some embarrassed shuffling of paperwork and mumbled apologies, before I thanked them politely for their time and left, disappointed but not surprised. Some friends & previous employees had warned me previously about poor organisation at Sage, but I thought they may have progressed ; how wrong I was. A complete waste of time; Avoid!
