    Senior Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Coupa Software Inc (New York, NY) in May 2020.

    Interview

    After applying, I got mail to complete online test consists of coding and testing related questions. Post completion of the test, with in a week, recruiter called me that test was cleared and now second round would be on zoom due to Covid-19 pandemic. Second round was taken by two persons, one joined late after other. They asked me the project related questions and some coding scenarios.

    After that I got mail from recruiter that they do not have any appropriate position for me at given my background and experience.

    What were these guys thinking? Did they even go through my resume initially. I called the recruiter to clear up but he didn't even pick up the phone, nir he replied on my mail.

    If my round was not cleared (which I doubt was the case, as I have answered all questions correctly) he could have told mr so.

    Product Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Coupa Software Inc.

    Interview

    Recruiter call, HM call, onsite w/ a few stakeholders. Pretty standard process except I never heard back from the onsite. I feel this was disrespectful, but I want this review to be helpful to potential candidates, so read on.

    Each interviewer focused predominately on prior experiences, as well as probing around why you left your previous companies. I even had an interviewer asked me specifically "come on, there is gotta be more to it", which never happened to me and imho was a bit odd. There was only one Product specific interview, which I actually enjoyed. Based on my limited exposure to the company, I personally didn't feel the product culture was very strong there.

    Senior Test Automation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Coupa Software Inc (Redwood City, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    It consisted of a recruiter call followed by a technical interview on the phone followed by 2 onsite interviews. One 4 hour long and the second about 3 hours long. The interview process went well for the most part except for the 2nd onsite. The folks were really nice and were quite accommodating. The interview with the EVP of Engineering was not ideal. He was late by about 15 minutes. Folks over there seemed terrified by him. This, to me, is a red flag about the company culture. The interview in his office wasn't best set for an interview. You basically are led to a couch which is really low while he stands over at his desk making it uncomfortable to have a decent conversation while looking up at a 45 degree angle. He essentially was playing with some screws on his desk while I was talking which was really distracting. He googled the companies from my resume to see if they exist. I found that really weird. But apart from this one interview the others were fantastic with people with a great attitude.

    We apologize if you did not feel your interview went well and that was certainly not our intention. We take pride as a company that we treat everyone with respect. In fact, we view our management structure as an inverted organization where we support our teams. If you would like to discuss further we would be happy to understand your experience in more detail. In addition, our EVP Engineering is very open to discussing with you as well.

    Interview

    I was interviewed for Senior Supplier On Boarding Specialist-

    After 2-3 days I called HR to enquire about feedback and was informed that my 2nd round will be scheduled.

    After some time I received an email that my candidature was rejected and upon asking the reason the Hiring manager and other panel thought my profile was not a good match.

    If my profile was not a good match why was I interviewed.

    Technical Trainer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Coupa Software Inc (San Mateo, CA) in August 2019.

    Interview

    I had 3 web based interviews and then was asked to create a keynote to present to a panel of current employees. I made the keynote and went to the office in San Mateo to present and have in person interviews. Presented in front of 3 people and interviewed with 3 more people individually after. Was probably at the office for 4 hours. This whole process I just outlined took about 1.5 months. Days and weeks passed without hearing about my interviews, mind you the recruiter responded to me for a few weeks after telling me I was still in the running and I would be contacted regardless if I received the position or not. Recruiter has since stopped responding to me and I still haven't heard back. Been about 3 months. It's really disappointing this company would put you through so much and not even bother giving you a simple yes or no. Be careful of wasting your time with these people
