    QA Automation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Provo, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Micro Focus (Provo, UT) in August 2016.

    Interview

    A friend referred me to Micro Focus. I sent him an email and received a call from the hiring managers early the next morning. We set up an interview for the following Tuesday. (a week later) I came in for that interview and interviewed with a number of people. I handled most of the questions well and enjoyed talking with the people I met. On the following Monday, I got another call about a second interview, which happened the next day. This interview was technically for a different position, but with different people from the same group. These interviews went quite well I thought. A day later I got a verbal offer. I then accepted the official offer that weekend.

    All throughout the process, I was in contact with the highering managers and Scott Kesner from HR. Scott, in particular, was pleasant, friendly, and responsive. In fact, once or twice, he called at the just the right time as I was also looking at another job. He reminded me why I liked what I saw at Micro Focus. Ultimately, I accepted Micro Focus's offer even though it was somewhat less pay than the other job. I'm glad I did.

    Interview Questions

    • One interviewer asked the fizzbuzz question. I hadn't heard that one before, but it was really quite simple. Its simplicity surprised me, but I guess it's a kind of smoke test.   1 Answer
    • I was also asked various other technical questions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It went well. I was satisfied with the offer, but I was also looking at other jobs. Scott was very accommodating as I reviewed my options.

    Accounts Payable Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Provo, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Micro Focus (Provo, UT) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Initial contact was through a telephone interview with a Sr. Recruiter. The Sr. Recruiter was excellent to work with. He communicated with me every step of the way. The Sr. Recruiter was very professional and also very personable. He made me feel like my comments and concerns were very important for him to hear.

    This was followed by an in-person interview with the Department Manager and the Assistant Controller. This interview was more of an open and honest conversation between the three of us. This was possible because they had thoroughly reviewed my resume prior to the interview and understood my experience & skill-set that I would be bringing to Micro Focus. Their concern for me as an individual, and my future career direction, was very much appreciated.

    My interview process with Micro Focus was an excellent experience. The main reason for this is that each person I met with was open and honest. There were no hidden agendas and they were interested not only in what I was bringing to Micro Focus, but also what Micro Focus could offer me.
