    Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Niagara Falls, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Harris Computer (Niagara Falls, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online, I got a call from the hiring manager the very next day and quickly scheduled an interview at the end of the week. I dressed business casual (no tie) and even came a little late. My interviewer didn't seem to mind. Questions were more about my critical thinking skills, though technical skills and job history were covered. I was invited to a second interview a week later which was little more than a formality and told I pretty much had the job. There was a holiday weekend between the second interview and the job offer, so if it hadn't been for that, the whole process might have taken three weeks between applying and starting the job.

    HR Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harris Computer (Niagara Falls, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called a week later to set up an initial phone screening. After the initial phone screening I had another phone interview and an in person interview 2 weeks after that. The whole process took about 3 months, but I was aware that it would be a longer process because of the holidays and they weren't looking to hire someone until January.

    All of my interviewers seemed very prepared and had a list of questions to ask based on an assessment I had taken. They also asked relevant follow-up questions and seemed genuinely interested in my responses.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Harris Computer in October 2013.

    Interview

    Simplest, cleanest interview ever. No trick questions. If they like your resume and you can show proof of things you have written, they get off the phone and back to business. And the recruiter I worked with (Gia Lewis and Jeffery Ackerman at TechLink, were amazing beyond belief. Fast, thorough, with a heads up on what to expect. They insisted that I make myself familiar with the product and the company, and it paid off. This is why I like working with real, living, local people rather than robo-recruiters.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no surprises anywhere along the way. Gia interviewed me and placed relevant information from my resume in the cover document, and off it went, Jeff told me what he knew and provided more about what they wanted. I rehearsed a brief summary about what parts of my career that seemed to relate to the company and my proposed utilization there, and I was set up for a final interviews.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was unable to negotiate the base salary (initially $50,000 for six months, then dropping to $40,000) or the commission (10% of gross sales up to quota, and increasing 15% after annual quota is achieved). During the interview process, I was told that I would be able to make up the difference in base salary through ongoing commissions. I tried to negotiate the base salary on the fact that the sales cycle is long (6 to 12 months). The interviewer explained that the sales cycle is really 3 to 6 months and was therefore not willing to negotiate. To make more, one must sell more. After nearly a year in this position, it is more realistic to say that the sales cycle is 6 to 12 months. I have sold several clients; however, the commission percentage and base salary still remain non-negotiable - even after subsequent discussions.
