    Market Analytics Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CA Technologies (Boulder, CO) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process started with an initial phone call from HR, with a second phone call with the positions manager and a third call with the managers manager. It concluded with an in-person interview and a presentation.

    Even with an employee referral, relevant job experience, and (what seemed to be) a positive and friendly interview, I was not offered the position.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CA Technologies.

    Interview

    This was for a CA acquired company. 2 phone screens with recruiters and then was supposed to talk to the director. She never showed up or let me know that she would not make the interview. After they asked to reschedule and I reluctantly agreed, they wrote me back to say that the interview would not be rescheduled now. The most unprofessional interview that I have ever had. It was so bad that I had to write on this site for the first time.

    Principal Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CA Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly typical interview process. Started with a phone conversation with the recruiter to better understand the role and verify the initial fit. Then continued with a phone discussion with the hiring manager to review relevant background skills and how I handled some specific work challenges. At that point we proceeded to 1:1 interviews with members of the team, including the group VP, to cover specific focus areas. Final stage would have been an onsite interview but the hiring team decided to skip that round and move to an offer.

    DevOps/Release Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CA Technologies (Boulder, CO) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Was asked Bro-y questions by a millennial drinking beer at noon in the office and was offered a beer. Wasn't sure if it was a trick question and declined. I thought the commercials they are currently running are pretentious but that was nothing to what it was like in person. If you are a young white male who enjoys alcohol and video games, you will fit in here. Anyone else might have difficulties if you can get hired.

    Operations Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CA Technologies in July 2017.

    Interview

    I spoke with the talent acquisition person on the phone and things went well, so she referred me to speak with the hiring manager. She asked me to get back to her after speaking with the hiring manager. I spoke to the hiring manager and that also went well, and he told me to speak with the talent acquisition person about next steps. I emailed her and told her how interested I was in the position and asked about next steps...and didn't hear anything. I emailed again a week later...and didn't hear anything. I called her 2 weeks after the phone interviews and finally heard back that they had filled the position but "really enjoyed talking" to me. All around it felt unprofessional and inconsiderate.

    Digital Sales Owner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CA Technologies (Plano, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I had a 30-45 minute telephone interview covering work experience, role, responsibilities as well as company background. I had two recruiters reach out via LinkedIn but was passed back and forth. I am very selective due to time and the recruiter was not conscious of my time. Took almost 2 weeks two schedule a phone interview. I eventually had a very strong phone interview and was never notified that I moved forward the process until I sent an email asking where I was at within the process. I was finally notified today I was not moving forward when the recruiter claimed to have sent that information (Which she did not). I called the recruiter back asking what I could do to improve and she would not disclose the information. Kind of hard to improve when there is no feedback. Unprofessional experience overall. I will remain a top performer at my current company, but always open to new opportunities. Thanks for wasting my time CA.
