    Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Novell (Boston, MA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Talked on the phone with a VP of Marketing. Frankly, I got the distinct impression that I was one of many people he called that day for his superiority complex fix. He asked me a few questions, some of which I had no way of knowing without having worked there before. Unfortunate experience.

    Product Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Novell (Provo, UT) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Initial application and contact was very quick. The Director of Product Management himself did the first rounds of interviews to filter more quickly and not wait for recruiters to filter. After the first interview, the second round was a week or so later. Then a long wait.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was limited--my boss was great and came in at the max offer point.

    Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novell (Boston, MA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    1st - Recruiter
    2nd - Hiring Mgr
    3rd - Hiring Mgr's direct reports (future peers)

    The company is very technical, and had little focus on business. The team's egos were very inflated and they were more focused on their academic credentials than they were in actually growing revenue.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Novell in June 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straight forward. There were three different groups looking for new hires and each group did an interview one right after another. For the most part the questions that were asked dealt with technical questions. The work culture seemed to me to be one that I would be comfortable working in, more laid back and free. I later found out that upper management pulled the plug on new hires for the time being.
