Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at SolarWinds in August 2014.

Interview Details

The interview was pretty much straight forward with very clear and objective questions and the interviewers acted always in a polite and respectful manner. The whole process from the 1st phone interview to hiring took about 10 days.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at SolarWinds.

    Interview Details

    My initial phone interview with the HR recruiter went really well! She was friendly and prompt on contacting me and responding to any questions I had. However, I think she could have been more upfront about the team and the role. Ultimately, when I went in for the face-to-face interview, the hiring manager was much more upfront about the pressure and demanding nature of the sales role.

    I do expect all sales roles to have a level of demand, competition and stress - it makes for an exciting sales environment but she painted a rosey picture and I got a very different vibe from the hiring manager. Feedback from former employees I know that worked there was much more in line with what the hiring manager conveyed.

    All in all, the interview process was quick (less than a week), from submitting my resume to a face-to-face interview. I think they could have been a little more upfront in the phone interview so my time or the hiring manager's time wasn't wasted but they were overall very quick and I appreciate that in the process.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at SolarWinds in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter schedules a short phone interview. Then a face to face if you impress. Interview style depends on the manager. Everyone is pretty intelligent so be able to think on your toes. This is a fast moving company so adaptability and a competitive nature is a must. Previous sales background is required (possible exceptions).

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at SolarWinds in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    At the time it was an interview with VP and then passed onto regional managers for the green light into their territories. No long, not drawn out. Now, my experience has been that interviews are not well thought out and when folks are brought in, it's a who's available or not out to lunch to facilitate.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at SolarWinds in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submitted CV, got a call back after around a month for an interview and accepted. Interview was with Sales Manager and got very little chance to speak, yet was offered the job shortly after on the same day. The whole process seem very casual and I found it a little odd at the time. After accepting the offer it became apparent that it is a very easy job to get.
