    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Software AG.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview and then in person with the hiring manager, and SVP. A 30, 60, 90 day plan for ramp up was expected, (stated by the recruiter, not bu the hiring manager)

    Once hired the hiring manager was unfamiliar with the territory and added no value when on sales calls. His preference was to listen in silence.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Software AG.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter contacted me (one of many Software AG have) and setup a meeting with the hiring managers by phone. The hiring manager called me an hour late, asked a few yes or no questions. It was clear that he was very inept at interviewing. Gave me a time to meet the next day and mentioned that I need to prepare a 30 minute presentation with little ver 14 hours notice. The in person Interview consisted of me delivering a 30 minute presentation of what value I can being to the organization, for which then I received the nod and the next day got a call that I will be made an offer. The offer made was about 305 less than what I indicated my requirements were, and they were not willing to negotiate, so I ended up accepting the role as I needed the work.

They asked simple programs like fibbonaci ,prime number,palindrome,bubble sort,binary search in these rounds.They asked 2 or more puzzles in each of these rounds . Next was the managerial round. It was also a technical round. Since the requirement was for RnD they will test more of your analytical skills...
