    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Palo Alto, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at TIBCO Software in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I have never been treated more unprofessionally than during the very short interview process at Tibco.

    My first sign that something was off was when I was already 10 minutes away from the Tibco office for my in person interview and the recruiter called me and asked if I could come in later that day because the interviewer had a schedule conflict. I know how crazy schedules get, so I agreed and came back later that afternoon.

    After arriving 15 minutes early for my interview later that day, I waited in the lobby for over an hour. Apparently, something happened with the recruiter that was supposed to meet and escort me and there was also a miscommunication in contacting the interviewer. I finally met with the interview who apologized for the wait. She seemed to like my responses and asked me to return the next day to meet with another EA I would be working closely with and to possibly meet with the VP I would be supporting.

    I returned the following day on time and again sat and waited. I couldn't believe this was happening again, so I asked the receptionist if everything was ok and if she could please check in with the interviewer. After 10 minutes passed, the receptionist came to me and said the interviewer was stuck in a meeting and that she would call me. I was speechless.

    I never received a call or an e-mail after leaving the office.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Palo Alto, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TIBCO Software in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The phone interviewer/recruiter was unprepared. Apparently, I passed that stage. I then had a half-day of on-campus interviews. Some interviewers were well prepared, others not (no copy of my resume, thinking of questions on the fly). I wasn't sent a list of interviewers in advance, so in fairness, I don't think the interviewers were given much advance notice. I was told I would receive feedback on the interviews by the following week, but heard nothing. I followed up with the recruiter and hiring manager via email, but still heard nothing...and still haven't heard back from them after more than 2 months. Very unprofessional. Not surprisingly, I read another online review by someone with a similar experience of no response after interviews. That must be TIBCO's M.O. for handling candidates who are not selected for the position. It's horrible practice.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TIBCO Software in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    This position was originally for a private company which was aquiered by Tibco 5 months after I was hired.
    I responded to an ad on Craigslist. I had two phone interviews and two face to face. The first face to face was with four support engineers. I was asked a lot of specific technical questions and then given situations to address.
    After the last interview with the Support Director I awaited HR to process my backround check. In all it took three weeks to complete the hiring process.
