    Senior QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pleasanton, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pleasanton, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Veeva Systems in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied via Linkedin and the hiring manager called me the next day. She asked basic questions about my background, profile etc. After that she sent me an online testing assignment, followed by a technical phone screen. The technical phone screen consisted of basic testing questions, and process related questions. Once that went through, I was called in for an in person interview

    The in person interview consisted of interviews with the hiring manager, and the directors of several peer groups. All of these interviews were mostly personality/fit questions - not much technical stuff was involved here. Everyone I talked to seemed really genuine and interested in knowing more about my background. It was a real pleasure meeting all of them

    The hiring manager was the one coordinating all the discussions, and she was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely professional and courteous and kept me informed during all the stages of the interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    The whole discussion and negotiation was for a senior role. When they gave the offer letter, I was offered a junior role. Also, the salary was lower than what I was currently making

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Veeva Systems.

    Interview Details

    Applied to Veeva Systems online in February. The hiring manager contacted me in April through email and wanted to schedule a phone interview on a Tuesday or Wednesday. I waited for the call and no one called. So I sent an email Wednesday night stating my availability for Thursday. Hiring manager gave me a call on Thursday and went through basic procedures and asking me questions. After phone interview the hiring manager said I would be contacted. I never was contacted, but I followed up about one month later and the hiring manager set up an onsite interview although I had to send many emails. I was scheduled to interview with 3 different people (1 on 1 interviews) and ended up talking to 2 because the third person was on vacation. The interview was very basic and not a whole lot of technical questions. I did however ended up taking a technical test, but the hiring manager said I was not going to be evaluated on it for this position. As I was being interviewed I got to ask a few questions. My favorite question to ask in a interview is " Do you have any concerns about my qualifications to do this job?" I asks this question on my second interview, and I was told there are no concerns. After the second interview, the hiring manager (first interview) tells me "... has some concerns about you." We chatted for a bit and the hiring manager walked me out. I got a call back the next week and told they decided to go with a different candidate.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Veeva Systems.

    Interview Details

    I had applied once before so my resume was still floating around the office somewhere. I had received an email about setting up for a possible phone interview. I wasn't given much time before the date they wanted to plan for but went ahead anyway. They were very timely in calling me, didn't have too much of a thick accent so I could understand easily enough and the questions were mostly about me and my skills without feeling grilled on my skills.
