Manager Consultant Interview

Manager Consultant
Charlotte, NC

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at SunGard Consulting Services in January 2010.

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

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

Senior Manager Interview

Senior Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SunGard Consulting Services in August 2009.

Interview Details – 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

Reason for Declining – I declined the offer because the salary represented a 20% pay cut.

User Experience Manager Interview

User Experience Manager

The process took a day - interviewed at SunGard Consulting Services in February 2012.

Interview Details – 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

Reason for Declining – I was overqualified, position was very junior

Consultant Interview

Consultant

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SunGard Consulting Services in February 2011.

Interview Details – I applied for the position through campus recruiting and got an interview. It was one on one with a Senior Consultant. It was a lot different than your traditional interview with behavioral questions. I felt like I had to lead the interview and the interviewer wouldn't talk.

Interview Question – There were no questions. That was the difficulty in the interview.   Answer Question
