    Microsoft Solutions Architect Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Softchoice.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my resume, the HR recruiter reached out to me right away and seemed very interested. We had a few back and forth emails with him asking qualifying questions and things progressed to a scheduled phone interview with him (the HR recruiter). That went well and a second phone interview was scheduled with the hiring manager. For the phone interview, I got a call from someone who was not the hiring manager. He let me know that the hiring manager was out of the office (didn't elaborate) and that he was going to try to fill in. It was a really short interview (about 30 minutes). He asked some pretty high level technical questions, which I provided the correct technical answers. Throughout the course of the interview, it transitioned from Q&A to him describing the role, what I'd be doing and got me pretty excited to take on the role. Usually, when things transition from Q&A to this is what you'd be doing, it's usually a good sign. At the end of the interview, he let me know that a 3rd interview would be scheduled with the original hiring manager (that I was supposed to interview with originally). Everything sounded positive. That phone call was the very last communication that I had from SoftChoice. After a few days, I followed up with an email back to the HR recruiter asking what the next steps were going to be. I didn't hear anything back. I followed up again after a few more days; still nothing. Normally, I wouldn't be so persistent, but the fact that they told me they wanted to schedule another interview, my natural inclination was to close the loop on the next steps. At this point, I'm getting the feeling that for whatever reason, something had changed with the position (not sure if it was cut from the budget or what). I sent one last (third) final email asking for an update since they expressed interest in pursuing me. No reply.

    The lack of communication was very off-putting and unprofessional. I can understand that if you aren't even selected as a candidate to interview for a position that there may not be any communication, but if you've interviewed twice and they even tell you that they wanted to schedule a third interview, that one would expect some communication. Whatever the case was, whether the position got put on hold or they found another candidate that they wanted to pursue, I think that a company should have the professional courtesy to let a candidate know if they aren't going to be considered further for the position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Softchoice.

    Interview Details

    After submitting resume, you receive a call [most likely from Canada] where they ask you a few questions about your resume just as an initial screening. If everything checks out, they schedule a phone interview roughly a week later. After the phone interview, they contact you for an in person interview with a sales manager. Generally you have two in person interviews before an offer is made.

    Territory Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Softchoice.

    Interview Details

    Do your research because the interviews got harder as I progressed through the rounds. Each employee I spoke with was genuine and passionate about the company and overall friendly people. You may find yourself struggling with some of the products and services offered so the research will help identify your interest in the company. The interview process was stream-less and moved along at a comfortable pace. It was also great to get each interviewer's perspective on the company, it's culture, and the role applied for. Relax and be yourself. Do not try to pretend to know things you clearly don't, they'll pick up on this.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Softchoice in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    The proces was pretty favorable until the end. I met a manager and recruiting event and we hit it off. He was interested and fast tracked my resume to ge the first round phone interview. The phone interview was incredibly long, but I made it to the second round. The second round was straight forward as I interviewed with the manager that recommended me. There was also a relatively easy IQ/reasoning type of test. Third round was a video call interview with two other managers. They asked all the standard questions, but I got a bit nervous so it was little rocky, however I felt I ended it well. Regardless, the interviewers told me I would hear from the right after the new year with their decision. I have not heard from them since.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Softchoice in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Because I was referred I skipped the typical first steps such as phone interview and HR communication. I had 2 interviews and then no communication. When I reached out it was the beginning of the New Year and they said they were very busy but still interested. The next thing I know I see the position posted again and I apply and find out that they had decided not to hire me.
