    Senior Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pune (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SunGard in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    An interview can be defined as the oral test of a candidate who had applied for a post for employment or admission.

    As no one knows about his future like it one cannot know about the questions to be asked by an interviewer.

    As the field of knowledge is very vast so the field of ques­tioning is very vast. Interviewer is at a liberty to ask question from any field of knowledge.

    This is luck of the candidate if his field of knowledge coincides with that of the members of the interview board. This is the matter of fate if the replies appeal to them.

    The difference of giver and seeker makes the members of the in­terview board on the superior side as they are givers and we are seek­ers.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SunGard in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round was a one on one behavioral interview that took about 30 minutes. Nothing out of the ordinary. I pretty much just had a pleasant conversation with my recruiter. Second round they sent me to the office in Houston (where I was applying). There were 3 interviews all of which lasted about 30 minutes. One behavioral, one technical, and one fit/ethics.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was "Tell me how you would write a program that converts roman numerals into regular (arabic) digits." Not the most challenging question in the world but out of the ordinary considering that every other question was about databases.   Answer Question

    Solution Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at SunGard.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a good-cop/bad-cop two-man tag team approach. One interviewer was very friendly and open, the other was aggressive and spent the whole interview trying to trip me up. The interview itself had no coverage of influencing skills, soft skills, architecture skills, or sales skills. The entire process was a highly focused on a technical Q&A where the bad cop tried to break me.

    Interview Questions
    • Highly technical details of Fibre Channel over Ethernet and OSPF to the level that a subject matter expert would be expected to answer (i.e. not an architect).   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't want to work for the bad cop. He gave me an extremely negative impression of the company. I also didn't want to work at their Heathrow offices part time (they are in the middle of nowhere).
