    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at The SAVO Group (Chicago, IL) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews and spent nearly a full day onsite interviewing with senior executives and department leaders. They told me they'd get back to me in two weeks. That was 7 months ago. Haven't heard a word since. Very unprofessional for an executive-level role.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The SAVO Group.

    Interview

    Pro: Two phone interviews and then multiple onsite interviews. Good communication and feedback throughout the process. The phone interview was with HR lead and the hiring manager.

    Con: The role was not well defined and this reflected in the approach taken by each onsite interviewer.

    Interview Questions

    • One interviewer specifically focused on metrics (a lot more than any role definition.   Answer Question

    Pre Sales Solutions Consultant Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The SAVO Group (San Francisco, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Unprofessional and appalling.

    After applying online I was promptly contacted by a recruiter to set up a phone screen. I was quite impressed with the quick turn around and we decided on a day and time 3 days later. Despite reading some of the negative stuff here on SAVO, I decided to prepare well especially since I found their solution to be very interesting.

    On the day of the phone screen, the recruiter sends me an email saying that she wouldn't be able to make it due to an "emergency". She sent this to me literally 30 seconds before the previously decided time for the phone screen. But since she offered to reschedule I shrugged it off and went ahead with giving her days/times when we could talk again. Its been over a month and I still haven't heard from the recruiter despite numerous attempts to reschedule (via phone/email). If this is the way they treat interested candidates, I want to have nothing to do with them. I now see why people complain about the culture and lack of direction in the reviews section. I guess it worked for the best in my case as I was given two offers after this rather distasteful experience with SAVO.

    My 2 cents - stay away from SAVO.

    If someone from SAVO is reading this, please teach your recruiters to behave with basic courtesy towards candidates.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The SAVO Group (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Very professional process with what appears to be a high degree of respect for the individual. Applied via LinkedIn and a recruiter followed up with me soon thereafter for a screening conversation. I then spoke to the hiring manager on the phone. The 3rd and 4th interactions were in their Loop-based offices (terrific place with a start-up feel and mentality).

    Interview

    The phone interview went well and we just discussed my current position and the challenges that I have faced and how I dealt with them. There was also questions pertaining to my past positions and how I got into the testing industry. The follow up question to this was what are my thoughts on testing. Finally, the topic of where do I see my career going.
