    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at SunGard Public Sector.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a conference call from a Human Resources employee and one of the supervisors for the area/team I would be assigned to. Prior to the interview they told me some general information about the job and some of the day-to-day expectations that are not mentioned in their recruiting announcement. I enjoyed the interview and they made me feel relaxed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at SunGard Public Sector.

    Interview

    The process consisted of an initial phone interview followed by onsite interview with manager, CIO and other individuals currently in the position being applied for. The interview as very laid back, the people and environment were exceptionally welcoming. Thorough background screening is required but was well coordinated and executed within a reasonable amount of time.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult question, for me, was (and always will be) explaining what I believe I can bring to the company. I never feel that I truly understand everything they are looking for, specifically, and I truly don't like providing broad, generic, cliché explanations.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary was negotiable, slightly, other benefits, etc. were structured and non-negotiable

    Director of Professional Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at SunGard Public Sector in November 2010.

    Interview

    The company conducted at least 12 interviews and seemed to really struggle trying to put together a compensation package to get me in the front door. This should have been the first clue that they were unaccustomed to seasoned veterans in leadership positions. Once landed, I worked extensively with both Sales and Delivery senior leadership to put together plans that more than doubled our delivered business. Unfortunately, SunGard PS is owned by a private equity firm so the investors were going to harvest their returns and let the rank and file compete for what was left.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The company ended up combining multiple positions to afford (from their perspective) to fund this senior leadership role.
