I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Xactly Corp..
Interview Details – 1st there could be telephone call for 15 mins. I was asked difference between API and webservice. Write test case for an application that takes back up of a DB. The company wants Automation resources so expect automation questions on Selenium. I didn't know selenium and I was upfront about it.
Interview Question –

2) how to check the number of occurrences of a word in a file in Unix.
3) what is the role of a scrum master?
4) what is velocity?
5) Template of a test case. (When answering do NOT miss out test objective...which is a one liner about what the test does)
6) Scrum methodology questions Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Xactly Corp. in September 2013.
Interview Details –
I contacted the managers and staff through LinkedIn. I was contacted by the recruiter and scheduled an interview.
The recruiter could not even manage to contact me at the phone number I provided to the scheduler. And, she was late in the process. Her tone of voice indicated that she thought it was my fault.
This is a great first impression. Although I don't know if I will get a second interview, I am inclined to think that they will treat employees with the same level of disrespect. I suggest looking elsewhere for a job.
I did get the second interview. Yuck! The hiring manager was rude and pretty disrespectful. When I asked about his management style, he responded with a story about how his staff described him. He then said that his staff saw him not as a slave driver, but the head slave pulling as hard as the rest of the slaves.
Interview Question – Tell me about your experience at your current workplace. What was your W-2 last year. Answer Question
Interviewed at Xactly Corp.
Interview Details – I agree with the other review who said setting up an interview was rocket science - after two weeks of emails trying to coordinate a time to chat with their internal recruiter, we finally had it narrowed down only for her to call me at a different time and leave a voicemail saying we had an appointment which we do not. Based on the difficulty of dealing with their front line recruiter I opted not to pursue this opportunity.
Interview Question – Didnt even have the initial discussion Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Xactly Corp..
Interview Details –
Setting up the interview was rocket science - The recruiter contacted me and asked when I was available, then she said she was unavailable for the next week and half. We finally scheduled a date and time, and then I got an email two days later with the same canned "I am busy for x days, please say when you can talk." I was confused and replied that I thought we had set a date, to which she replied "That's fine." Yikes.. great first impression.
We finally spoke, and I was completely grilled on my background. For recent graduates, the job market has been incredibly tough, so of course there have been many internships to fill the time. You have to take what you can get, other than flipping burgers. She could not seem to get over this and apparently does not follow the US jobs reports.
A few minutes into the grilling, she asked to put me on hold of all things, and at that point I said that I did not feel this was a good fit and did not wish to continue the interview. That is NOT someone I would want to work with.

Interview Details –
Got a interview call in-person straight, did not have any phone interview. I went for interview, met 2 managers, and one rep. Interview went well, straight forward questions, spent around 15-20 minutes with each of the managers and the rep. They all were friendly, and the ended the interview with positive comments. Next day in the morning, one of the managers I interviewed with called back, to invite me for next round of interviews with a manager, and director of IT. I also got email and call from an HR rep to have a background check of me. I got call from my previous employer that Xactly is doing a background check on me. Sound promising for now, my hopes were high, however, the battle is not over until the offer is given. Three days later, I went for the second round of interviews. It started off with meeting the director of IT. The strange part was he mentioned "let me open up Google in my laptop here to find some questions to ask"..He was choosing random questions that had absolutely no connection to position or my background. Of course, there are always behavior questions that employer may ask, but this guy only asked behavior question, which I later discovered on Google 's list of tricky questions...in other words, I got the impression, this guy just wants to ask tricky questions, and get over with it. He just spent 20 mins, and said he has a meeting, and whether I have any questions for him..I asked couple of questions, and his answered were "I don’t know, i am not familiar with the position you are applying for"...the dumbest question that i have ever came acroos from any employer here was "there has to be something you did not like in your last job,what would that be, and whose fault is that?"..in other words, making me say something negative,,which I still did not say anything negative..still again he asked,,whose fault is that?
Tha manager came if after to interview, just asked one question, and went straight to "i dont have any question, you have any questions for me" . i asked few question, interview ended..and all my hopes died...First round was excellent, company environment and culture looked excellent, but interview with this director, was just the worse interview I ever had...not only because, I may have not done well, but the questions asked by him, made me rethink on whether i see my self working with such people...i still see a great fast growing company, great culture, but a heads up for future interviewers.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Xactly Corp. in September 2011.
Interview Details – Extremely disorganized and uprofessional! An Xactly recruiter emailed me via and we arranged a phone meeting. She never called. I followed up twice, and she responded as if we had never been in contact and I was being a nuisance. Then she claimed she couldn't sponsor me to work in the US and essentially "Don't call me; I'll call you." My profile states that I'm a permanent resident.
Very Easy Interview
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Xactly Corp. in November 2010.
Interview Details –
After several conversations by phone I was brought in to meet the team and work through the intro to culture process. I was immediately turned off by words such as "Young", "good looking", and "hip"
Apparently the process is visual as well as related to personality and skill. It was very hard to not get up and walk out.
Interview Question – There werent any hard questions- this was a superficial conversation. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview

Interview Details –
It was the most funny interview ever. First of all, the interviewer didnot call on time. Seemed the panel was not available. Then I called up the consultant who organized the call. Then one HR called me up . She asked me generic questions in the beginning , and later, she said she will ask java questions :DD
She asked some crap basic questions, and said my expectations, and if I was interested to reduce my expectations and join. When I said I will not reduce my expectation,she suddenly said she will get back to me.Horrible interview ..never apply in this company.
