    Senior Director, Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cupertino, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cupertino, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at SugarCRM in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Series of interviews with top executives.
    The interviews were about 30 minutes each. It can be a bit of a whirlwind, but it's good to get multiple perspectives of how the role interacts with multiple departments, etc.
    The HR department is very helpful and communicates effectively across the entire process.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked about how I;d specifically target a market I had not previously spent much time addressing. Caused me to think out of the box, on the spot.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I started as a contractor, there was some confusion as I was actually brought on at a rate less than negotiated (the HR rep I worked with left the company during the process so I think there was some confusion there); but I was quickly hired full time which gave me full benefits and more than made up for the gap in hourly untaxed rate. (Probably saved me a big tax bill in the long run!)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SugarCRM.

    Interview Details

    Good experience through the interview process. The recruiter setup an initial phone screen via email, about a week after the phone interview I was brought on-site to meet the rest of the team. I met with 6 team members and the interview was about 2 1/2 hours. The interviewers were well organized and asked good, relevant questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at SugarCRM in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    Phone interviews... plenty of scheduled time with various senior management... they never called. I still got the job. The interview process at SugarCRM was the most half-assed one I've ever experienced.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate... I hated my previous job and was willing to take anything. In hindsight working for SugarCRM was a mistake.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at SugarCRM.

    Interview Details

    Had two phone interviews - one with HR (which was mishandled and the recruiter forgot to call me) and a second with the hiring manager. Questions were fairly general and nothing stood out as unusual. Was invited to attend an on-site interview the following week but received an email that they were cancelling the position just a few days later.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SugarCRM.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got response from the recruiter in 1 day. Had an initial phone screening with the recruiter, then another phone screening with the hiring manager. Then had on-site interviews with people I will work with. The hiring team was very efficient and professional. I liked the fact that Sugar has a dedicated coordinator that coordinate meetings. Recruiters can focus on recruiting. Overall experience was very positive.
