    Client Services Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bottomline Technologies (Atlanta, GA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Multiple 1 on 1 interviews with the management team. Each initial conversation was positive and then was interviewed by someone in the sales group even though this was not a sales position. That final conversation/interview was very adversarial and focused on how to handle sales engagements. It was not clear why the interview process went in this direction and the resulted in confusion around the role the company was trying to fill.

    Interview Questions

    • Respond to a particular situation within a sales opportunity and how you would respond in a sales negotiation.   1 Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I started interviewing for this job in spring 2013. There were two phone interviews, one of which was standard behavioral stuff and another of which was a getting-to-know-you interview with some questions about my skillset/experience and some information about the company. Then there was an in-person interview, which consisted of talking to two or three people. Most of it was the standard "talk about a time you've had difficulty working on a team" sort of questions, but there was one example business case where I was expected to look at a paragraph-long description of a business problem and talk at a high level about how I would design the solution and associated architecture.

    It was pretty obvious from both the phone interview and the in person interview that this is a high-pressure work environment. I was specifically told that 45-50 hours per week or more were expected, and there seemed to be a lot of emphasis on being aggressive and moving up through the company. I suspected that there's a work-life balance problem here, and reading other reviews on Glassdoor confirmed that.

    The phone interviews took about two-three weeks from first contact to finish, and the in person interview was the week after that. I got an offer just a few days after my in person interview. It was hilariously low - just over half of what I'd been offered for a similar position, and at least one third below the average market rate in the area.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing too difficult, just be prepared to think at a high level about how you would design an app to a customer's specifications given varying requirements.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was hilariously low, the work doesn't seem terribly exciting, the business seems like it is extremely high pressure with a bad work-life balance. There is nothing about this company that would be attractive to anyone with a solid CS education.

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portsmouth, NH
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bottomline Technologies (Portsmouth, NH) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Disjointed, confusing, poor communication, strange telephone calls and messages. Felt like I was interviewing for CIA! I struggled to believe that the person on the other end of the phone was an SVP. Very poor language skills and interview technique.

    Reasons for Declining

    I needed a period of physiological counselling after going through the process.

    QA Manager Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bottomline Technologies (Portsmouth, NH) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the position of "QA Manager." Interviewed with the Director of QA and two product managers. All three of these interviews were pretty tough interviews. I was hit with quite a few tough questions, many centering around my abilities as a project manager. One interviewer asked me many questions about how I would estimate the size of a QA team needed for various projects. In my previous positions as a manager, I was given a certain size staff & simply told to get the software tested cleanly... Another interviewers put me on the spot about my resume; mentioning things the various interviewer didn't like about my resume. It was a very interesting job & I'm sure that I could have performed it really well.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you estimate how many QA resources are needed for any given project?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Portsmouth is too far from my home & working remotely was not an option for the hiring manager.
