    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at DemandTec (Redwood City, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview with development manager.Asked me on online whiteboard to explain SQL joins.I wasn't quite prepared for it,so fudged it but somehow guessed atleast 2 answers right.Also told the same thing to him that I was guessing the answer but also went in detail about things that I am bringing to the table.Was called onsite

    1) Had five different interviews with the same manager as above,QA engineer,product manager,build/release engineer,VP of engineering and recruiter
    2)All interviews went well-only couple were technical ,rest were more abstract and general stuff.Also asked lot of questions on the process.
    3)Finally recruiter asked me my salary expectations

    I got a call later from the recruiter that I was liked and was in the "contention".Hindsight I like to believe she was just lying to keep me interested and they were actually on the fence about me.

    Anyway never heard back from them.But a decent interview but I would have appreciated honesty from the recruiter.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at DemandTec (San Mateo, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I received two phone screens from the Technical department. After answering many questions about my background, I don't believe I am in the running for an in person interview. This was a referral from a very dear friend. Brush up on your technical knowledge to really wow them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DemandTec (San Mateo, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call from their HR/recruiter on the same day. She went through a short technical test then the hiring manager send me a coding test (algorithm). After sending my implementation back, i had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Fairly intense Java questions and again, algorithms. I thought i failed but a week later,recruiter called and arranged for a 2nd phone interview with another engineer. I felt this went on and on (still no sign of a peronal interview), too much algorithms (I was applying for a position with a front end focus!) and the job wasn't the right fit so i declined.

    Systems Administrator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DemandTec (San Mateo, CA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The initial phone interview was with two technical staff members. The questions seemed relevant, as they both probed my technical abilities and gave me and idea of the work environment and upcoming challenges. As with all phone conversations, it was nearly impossible to gauge company culture.

    Arriving in person, I was greeted, after a short delay, by an internal HR staffer. Being short on time (apparently mutual, according to the agency recruiter), any delay didn't bode well. After the hour was nearly up, there wasn't even word from the still-absent technical interviewers or their manager.

    In this profession, unexpected emergencies happen, but not even attempting to minimize the time wasted is inexcusable.
