Interview Details – I Interviewed with 2 of my potential peers without the manager. They asked standard interview questions and we talked about my work history. We had hit it off and they recommend the manager schedule me for a second interview. Surprisingly in spite of what the peers told me, manager stated to the recruiter that I did not have enough experience and did not offer second interview. I Interviewed for a different position in another department and did not do well, so I assume the manager made the decision based on that.

Interviewed at Ventyx
Interview Details – Submitted a resume in response to an on-line job announcement. Months have gone by and not even an acknowledgement that the application materials submitted was received. This is why HR departments have such dismal reputations. They have a job so why should they care how they treat applicants. Typically these poorly lead organizations either don't know how to manage the recruitment process and/or don't know what high performing talent looks like.
Interview Question – Surprised that with so many job opportunities that way into the organization is so dismal. It does not speak well for the company, its leadership and its culture. Answer Question

Interview Details – Spoke with hiring manager on the phone, we seemed to have a good rapport and I was invited to meet with him in person. He asked me some questions. Tell me about global deployments you've done, tell me about the largest project you've manageed, etc.
Thought I was doing pretty well with that, then he brought in a developer. Guy was nice enough but started asking a bunch of really technical questions regarding the software that I use. They were random and out of context and I was trying to figure out what they were getting at.
I finally answered a few, and he seemed to be satisfied that I knew enough. "You have a good Administrator's background." Well, yes, I never claimed to have more than that.
The interview lasted an hour and I got a vibe that I wasn't going to be getting the job.
I heard NOTHING after that, not even a thanks, but no thanks email.
Kind of tacky if you ask me.

Interview Details – The hiring process was pretty straight forward. Initially the HR will send you a link to complete an online GK quiz and once that is done, depending on the minimum cut-off score you get selected to go to the next round.
The next round is usually the an HR round asking about you, your background, any experience and why you think you are best for this job and how you can contribute to the growth of this company.
Once the HR round is completed, they call you on-site for an interview. My location was Houston and my interview was scheduled from 11am-3pm. Unlike most companies, this is not very organised and this you might always get done maybe an hour early. Consists of 4 face-to-face interviews. One from HR, one from your technical lead, one from a Project management lead and one from a sales lead. All questions are related to previous experience and they will not ask anything outside of what you have mentioned in your resume.
Even after they finalized me and offer the job, they took 2 months to give me my offer letter and another month for me to start.
