    Practice Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Internal recruiters are friendly and efficient at what they do. After that, it takes a long time to go through the entire interview and hiring process. I interviewed with the company over a two day period with six managers. Then it took forever to actually get the offer, because the HR process is so slow.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Ask for 5% higher than they offer. If they like you and it's within the range they can offer, they'll probably be OK.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sybase (Alpharetta, GA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I met some representatives from the company at a career fair at my school. I had a short phone interview first. Then the next week I went in for an interview. Was applying for 2 or 3 different spots so I was interviewed by a few people. Everyone was really nice and all went well. Some "tell me about yourself" stuff, some questions to check my computer science knowledge, lots of them talking about the company. The interview as a whole lasted 2 hours.Got a call a week later saying they went with someone else.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Sybase (Dublin, CA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Group interview with two managers, and then a senior director one week later. First interview I explained what I had been doing with my previous employer and my work situation. Second interview gave me a much clearer picture of the job and I was very excited about the position afterwards.

    Sybase has slightly older employees compared to other places I've worked. Can't tell if it was that or the culture of the company, but It was not a high-pressure interview by any means.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain the technology you are working on now. How does it relate to the requirements of this job?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I left my previous job before a sign-on bonus 'lockup' completed, so I wanted to carry the bonus across to my new employer. They refused, but instead they increased the base salary. I wanted the job so that was fine.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Sybase (Dublin, CA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    The initial contact was with the internal recruiter via email back in March 2009. Then in mid May the recruiter contacted via email and a phone call to discuss a position that came available. Shortly after I was setup with several separate 1 on 1 interview’s that span about a month. The individuals ranges from sales managements, hire manager to the sales team that the position would support. Overall the interview process went very well, resulting in a verbal offer by the hiring manager. Regrettably after spending over a month, no job offer was extended due to management decision to change the organization and hiring qualifications.

    Interview Questions

In all, the process took about 3 weeks.

    No negotiation. 60K was the top salary (at that time) for an Inside Rep.
