    Practice Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    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.

    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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sybase in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Staff Software Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sybase in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Sybase in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    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.

    The hiring process was pretty straight forward. I interviewed for a Sr. Inside Sales Job. I talked with the recruiter over the phone first, then was brought in for an interview one week later. After interviewing with the District Manager, I then had to talk to several of the Outside Account Managers. In general, all interviews went well, and I was offered a position several days later. In all, the process took about 3 weeks.

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