    Solutions Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Teradata in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Several telephone interviews because this was a remote (work-from-home) job. You will talk to C-Level, Managers, Peers. These are people from Sales, Marketing, and Management in general. There will be several Technical people you talk to so they can assess your tech level. If there are other Teradata employees near where you live, you will interview with them too. A final in person interview at HQ where they fly you out and put you up in a hotel. By this point, you got the job but you still need to bring your A-game.

    Interview Questions
    • You are part of the technical sales team, you need to be an "expert-level" technology person as in all things computer science. That is just behind the starting gate if you will. From there, you need go and show you can capture and sustain an audience (C-level and other technical people) in a meeting because you need to sell the product. As a Solution specialist you are providing a "demo" and/or "proof of concept". Therefore you are expected to demonstrate this in the interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was not much of negotiation from my end because Teradata said this is the offer and take it or leave it.

    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Teradata in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Terrible experience. Every step of the way was marked by screw ups and bad communication.
    The outside recruiter made the experience incredibly difficult and her attitude was horrible.

    I believe that I "dodged a bullet" on this one. It seemed like a promising opportunity but they literally drove me away with their unorganized, chaotic and demeaning approach.

    P.S. I've worked at top tier technology companies for years and this experience was the worst I've seen.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Teradata.

    Interview Details

    The process took two week. I applied online. I never spoke with a recruiter, which I thought was strange. The first interview was with a director. Despite a vague job description, the director asked a variety of technical questions. The second interview was with VP. I thought the interview went well, but I never heard back.

    You take the usual set of pre-employment tests then if you pass, they get a lead to interview you. If everything goes well, you get the offer from the HR Department. All you need to do is be prepared with the technical questions and be honest with all rest of the non-technical questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Teradata.

    Interview Details

    They were not flexible in scheduling the interview, which was from 10:30 AM - 3:00 PM, making it easy for themselves, and meaning I would have to take the entire day off to interview. Everyone was friendly except for the hiring manager. She would not answer any questions relating to the position.
