    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MICROS Systems.

    Interview

    First interview with out-of-state manager went well. He admitted that their e-commerce platform is a bit out of date. Met several folks on-site for next round of interviews. Interview with prospective manager went OK, but I got the impression that I didn't have all of the skills they'd need me to have. The manager was pretty intense, but friendly. Technical interviews went OK, but I got a feeling that I didn't have the technical skills necessary for the position. They kept asking me about technical skills I didn't have. It took a little while for the recruiter to get back to me. I needed to ask him about how the interview process went.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember anything specific right now, but I got several questions about troubleshooting Oracle, which I know nothing about except how to query the database via JDBC.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The company was further from home than my current job (at the time). Another company offered me the same salary and the drive was much shorter. Also, the other company said that I'd be working with some newer technologies. I thought that this position would be very stressful, since I'd need to pick up a lot of skills I currently don't have. Also, I read some pretty negative things about the company on this site.

    Retail Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Solon, OH
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MICROS Systems (Solon, OH) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The process started with a hiring fair. The staff at the fair was bright and cheery, the questions were about IT PM experience. This led to a round of 5 more interviews. This was at the Solon location, in a marathon session with most of the team. The questions in the marathon session were similar in each round. A couple touched on different areas that were unique, but we basically stayed on the script of the resume. There were other calls with other team members and an enthusiastic HR person to shepherd the process.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered a lower position (Associate PM) at $30k less than my asking price. My perception is that the final manager offered a negative impression of my federal and military experience, leading to the initial demotion. It came through in a couple of "off color" remarks.

    IT Support - Phone and Desk Side Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MICROS Systems (Columbia, MD) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I was called by their internal recruiter. She asked what my current salary requirements wee. I told her and was asked if that was negotiable. I said yes to her. She thanked me and referred me to a manager, who called me an hour later. He asked me if I could interview later in the week. It was rescheduled to Feb, 14. I said yes and was told to come in. I sent a question to the recruiter about dress and what else I should bring with me. She told me to "just bring your professional self". I interviewed with the help desk manager and the team. I then interviewed with the IT manager. Just to clarify, it was a snowy day and I drove in 3 inches of hard packed snow to get there. When I was finished with the manager, the help desk manager wanted to know what I was asked and how I was received by the head of IT as though he was fishing for clues as to what the manager thought. He also had stated earlier that he had been there 20 years. All people involved made it abundantly clear that I would be working massive overtime and that I was exempt and would NOT be compensated for comp time as the position was exempt. I said it would not be an issue as long as the company met my numbers salary-wise. I was never asked what that number was. I was told that I would be contacted about the results of the interview. I sent a thank you note to the interviewers and have heard nothing back. Sent a follow up email asking if I was still under consideration and still nothing. Nineteen days later, still nothing. My impression of this company is that they could care little about their people and that they have big disconnects between managers and employees. The way I was handled left a bad taste in my mouth. It is sad that there was little professionalism on display here.

    Interview Questions

    Customer Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MICROS Systems (Columbia, MD).

    Interview

    Over the phone/ email screening. Try to highlight either customer support experience or technical aptitude, either way will be a good starting point.
    Next, an in person interview with part of the management staff. They will review your resume, ask typical interview questions you'd find on google, and perhaps a very basic set of technical questions, but this won't be the focus if you don't come from a technical background, so don't worry.
    When you start you'll have about 2 weeks of training, at the regular rate of pay. You'll probably be 8-5 for the first month or so, then they will want to switch you to 2-10. Better hours become available based on seniority and work performance.

    Interview Questions

    • This is not really applicable. Just make sure you present yourself well, are well spoken (since it is a phone support role), and express you can maintain a professional and friendly air.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You can request specific hours if need be, and they may be accommodating.
