    FP&A Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FalconStor (Austin, TX) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Overall a very positive experience.
    I was constantly updated on the status of my application and had a very interesting conversation with their HR Director. He works from Europe and during our video call gave me the impression he's really interested in my expectations and answered all my questions as far as he could. Not a standard, boring interview for sure. Thanks!

    Interview

    The process was quick. and timely. Four (4) meeting scheduled in 30 minute intervals. 1 with direct report to, 2 line managers, 1 Human Resource representative. From the time I walked in and out everything was run smoothly. There is a change of Middle Management, ongoing and the "lifers" should be more receptive to change during this economy. The perception was the inmates are running the asylum.

    VP Engineering Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FalconStor (Melville, NY) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I liked the approach and meeting the Management from FalconStor a lot.

    I applied online and within a couple of days I got a confirmation mail from HR telling me that they received my application and they appreciated my interest and time spent applying - that´s a first!
    I got invited to a Skype Video Call with the HR Director (who works from Vienna) and had a very interesting conversation / interview with him.
    I was challenged by a lot of questions no one has asked before, but made a lot of sense and it never felt like I was being "tested".
    Loved the way, the HR Manager made me comfortable.
    After that I was invited to another call with the CEO, which was great as well.

    Unfortunately I didn't get the job, but the recruiting experience was great.
