    Senior Sales Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kofax in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a junior recruiter who first emailed to have me clarify my experience. I email her back and told her I had a financial background and recently sold software. She then called to set up the interview. The senior recruiter was like 6 minutes late, so I called the junior recruiter who's contact information I had to verify if she was supposed to call me or vice versa. Senior recruiter then immediately called me and began saying how she had concerns about my experience and stability, I guess since I wasn't working. So I spent the interview time trying to validate my fit for the position. While her concerns were so what understandable, it didn't seem like the left hand knew what the right hand was doing. If I wasn't a fit, why was I contacted in the first place? They could've saved some time by having a cohesive qualifying process. If this process is anything like working here, I dodged a bullet! Moving on...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kofax in September 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by a more junior-level recruiter via e-mail to set up a call with another internal recruiter.
    The recruiter was hostile during the call, questioning why I wasn’t currently working and she said “We only hire people who are currently working”. Really?
    The recruiter was familiar with my previous employer but kept referring to the company as a “partner” company when in reality the company I worked for utilized one of the Kofax products for a service offering they provided but the company wasn’t a “partner”, they were a customer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kofax in July 2015.

    Interview

    Had discussions with HR who basically just wanted to hear a voice. I then spoke to the hiring manager. The interview lasted the full allotment of time. I was told he had other candidates to talk to when he returned from vacation. I reached out to the recruiter a couple of days later and was told there's no fit.

    Don't loose your time on Kofax. Interviews take a lot of your time. They will tell you that they want to hire you and then they become unprofessionally silent. Move on.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kofax.

    Interview

    Initial communication was with HR - background/history, what you are looking for, what is your current status. Fairly normal questions from HR - non-technical.

    Interview Questions

    • The technical interview was very academic and were shot out very rapid fire. This line is more-or-less the filtering out of the technically inept.... What does "Final" mean? What is OOP? Compare and contrast abstract and interface...   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kofax (North Atlanta, GA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an independent recruiter about a presales position. I initially declined to be interviewed but when he called back a couple of months later I chose to take the interview.
    The recruiter put me in touch with company HR. They did a quick screen to verify my compensation expectations before having me speak with the hiring manager.
    I spoke with the hiring manager on the phone before meeting him in person at lunch about a week later. Concurrently I had another interview process in flight and told Kofax I need to pick up the pace if they were interested.
    The VP called the next day and I had an offer by the end of the week.
