    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sungard Availability Services in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    HR was very quick and responsive. I applied for the position online and the next week HR contacted me to setup a phone interview; all of the scheduling and communications were done via email. I had an initial phone screen with the hiring manager and his team lead. I felt that they were fair in the job description and what they were looking for in a candidate. I must say that right off the bat this was a technical interview. They didn't really care about my personality or my work ethnic just my technical ability, and I am not sure this was a "good" method to hire anyone.

    Data Center Operations Technician Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Sungard Availability Services in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online via their website in early July, heard nothing for 7 weeks but got a mid-August 1:1 interview after requesting a status update from HR. I met with the manager of data-center operations who gave me a tour of their Austin facility. We later discussed the position and my professional background, everything was friendly and conversational. I also individually chatted with two members of his staff. Both were cheerful and forthright. A week afterwards, I followed-up with HR and let them know I was still very interested. They said they were done interviewing, but hadn't made a decision. A month later I received a canned email reporting that no one was hired for this role. I later learned that the long delay between my application and interview was because they had pre-selected someone to fill this role, but when their candidate got a lucrative counter-offer (and suddenly became unavailable) they were forced to restart recruitment.

    Product Analyst Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Thornton, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Thornton, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Sungard Availability Services in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the manager first, then a 1:1 with 3 people in the department. The interview itself was not that difficult. It was fairly laid back.

    I was offered the position, however, the hiring process took seriously long. It was about 6 weeks of background checks and drug tests. I ended up receiving a seperate offer with another company and accepted the offer. I would have loved to work for SunGard, unfortunately it took them way to long to get me an offer. It was pretty disappointing. The background check company they use is a joke... they really could choose a better one.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sungard Availability Services in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Took about one month. Pretty simple. Starting with recruiter. Then on to the Manager. Next was a discussion with a team member about the actually job duties. Not many questions. More of a casual conversation.

    Once the offer was made I had another brief talk with the manager at my request. Overall a pleasant experience.
