    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Informatica (Austin, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    After quick phone interview with internal recruiter, had an in-person interview with 3 managers. From there I met with the 2 team leaders who gave me the run down on "life as a BDM".

    Then I went back to de-brief with the Director.

    I like multi-person interviews vs one-on-ones anyway.

    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Informatica (Austin, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was lengthy and a bit arduous. There were several initial phone interviews with a couple different managers as well as their director. Once you've gone through a series of these interviews, you get the opportunity to have a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager. Due to the nature of their schedule, it can take a couple weeks before you hear back.

    Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Informatica (Redwood City, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, about a week later had a great connection with the recruiter. A few days after talking to the recruiter had a good call with the hiring manager. Then things went dark, I would reach out every 2 weeks for about 3 months asking where we were. The recruiter would take days to let me know I am still in consideration. After two months of that, I accepted an offer else where. Eventually after starting the process 3 months prior (and another job), I got a voice message saying they went with someone else.

    Not sure why they dragged out the process. If I was in consideration, lets get to the next step. If not, let me know asap. Fortunately for me I had options.

    Technical Support Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Informatica (Redwood City, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the HR lady, and a technical phone interview with a senior engineer. Then they scheduled me with a whole morning interviews with a few people in the company. They asked me bunch of technical questions on certain skills. And when I asked them if I need to use those skills in the potential job, and they said no. I don't feel the interviews were friendly and respectful. It seems they just need a worker to fill the empty seat. I left the company and convinced it's not a good fit. The HR lady called me for another interview a few weeks later, and I declined it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Informatica (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process was quick. I had an initial screening with Hiring Manager about my past experiences and some scenario-based questions. The following day he forwarded my profile to his team mates, where I had back-to-back three telephonic interviews with mostly scenario-based and some direct questions on Unix, SQL and DBs. After these interviews, I was called by the recruiter for onsite interviews where I had different levels of interviews with 6 to 7 people. The interviewers ranged from Senior Engineers, Team Leads to Managers. The entire team was very friendly, welcoming and took good care of me.

Mostly various problematic scenarios were given and we should explain how to solve them.
