    Interview

    They were very kind and pleasant to deal with, and I enjoyed the interview process. They are laid-back and the environment seemed really nice. I got to ask a lot of questions about the industry, and it felt like they care about their workers. I learned a lot from the interview process and got to show what I knew, and was overall very positive.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer did not ask too many technical questions, but was more interested in my overall knowledge of how everything is put together, and more big-picture concepts like the software development cycle. He did ask about some sorting algorithms, but it was nothing difficult.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at SunGard Consulting Services (Charlotte, NC) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Interviews very informal, at that time they needed specific skill ASAP, so most of the time it was related to skill interview and very little on behaviour questions.
    Most of the interviewer are very people oriented, they really try to get to know you personally. They want this to be a two ways commitment between the company and the individual for a long term relationship.

    Interview Questions

    • List possible issue/bottle neck when designing a virtual server configuration. Also explain how to minimize the potential risk/issue.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation, possibly you can negotiate for additional vacation out of the standard 3 weeks for the new joiner.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SunGard Consulting Services in August 2009.

    Interview

    My initial contact with the company was via a colleague from a prior firm who had recently joined SunGard Consulting Services. An SCS recruiter conducting a phone screen, following which I had another phone screen with a Principal. A couple of weeks later I was brought into the office for face to face interviews with a Senior Manager and two Principals. A week later I was brought back to interview with another Principal and a Partner.

    All of the interviews focused on my relationships with clients and my approach to sales. There was some discussion of my operational skills, but very little. Each interviewer -- particularly the Partner -- went into depth on my approach to client relationships and selling.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer because the salary represented a 20% pay cut.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at SunGard Consulting Services in February 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and within 2 days I had received an email confirmation followed up with a phone call to schedule an interview.
    I was impressed by the professionalism and execution of the process.

    The phone interview call came promptly. The recruiter was an employee, that was refreshing.
    I was ask to "talk about my last position"
    Once I finished, she quickly assessed that I may be over qualified & asked what my past & desired compensation.
    when I told her & she replied that position will pay a max of $50K, she will keep me in mind for better matched opportunities.
    I was not rushed off the phone & found interviewer to be very respectful.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I was overqualified, position was very junior
