    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lowell, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Sterling Commerce in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    It was a very simple and confused interview cycle where the questions were themselves simple, but the interviewers seemed unprepared. Not much thought given to the concept of vision, product strategy, competitive environment or key differentiators. You expect the interviewers to be more knowledgeable about these areas than the candidates but that did not appear to be case with most I spoke with.
