Veeam Software Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Very Easy Interview
Field Sales Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Veeam Software in October 2013.
Interview Details – Interviews in person and via WebEx. No peer interviews. Verbal offer was poor. Asked for improved deal and was told no. Should have walked away at that point. Recruiters lost track of the process and weren't upfront with many details that would later become very important.
Systems Engineer Interview (Positive Experience)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Veeam Software.
Interview Details – Short phone Interview then a in person interview. They were 3 panel interview and very casual. It was one of the best interviews I have had.

Inside Sales Associate Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Veeam Software in October 2008.
Interview Details – You will be walked in and put in front of 4 people and screened first by the HR generalist. and asked a series of questions. but before you get a interview you will face a pointless test to see if you are a selfish person or a person that they feel is a driver as they would say. and if you are then you will proceed with the process where you will be given a offer that is going to be very much below Market value.
Interview Question – if you are a strong sales person nothing will give you a issue. View Answer
Negotiation Details – you really have to know the market and understand the commission plan, if you do then you will see that it is back-end loaded and you will need to speak to the up and down of the sales cycle and how long it is going to take to achieve your goal.

Interview Details – 30 minute phone interview, followed by a in your face interview with 4 people sitting across from you. firing questions at you. before you can complete a answer you are asked another and a another from different people.

Sales Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Veeam Software in March 2012.
Interview Details – About a 20 minute phone interview, then scheduled face to face. Interview with three guys on the other side of a board room style table, which slid over their business cards like American Psycho, then took turns firing off questions along with having follow ups for each others. Some questions were easier than others with the head guy in the middle asking the tougher ones. If you know a lot about computer software and the company beforehand then you should be able to answer some of the questions better then me.
