Friendly HR and Manager. Not easy interview but the manager makes sure that you are comfortable before starting. Has always follow up question but you will ace it as long as you are honest and confident.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OpenText (New York, NY)

Interview

They sent me an interview invitation 2 hrs before the actual interview. I saw their email 1 hr before and then they called me and conducted a phone screening. HR promised to update if I will pass for the next screening stage. She sent an sms asking if my expected salary is still negotiable, I said it depends on the actual package that will be offered to me. Didn't here anything from them after that day...

Phone screen with the manager, interview with 2 other executives I'd be working closely with, then declined to pursue the role further. the phone screen with manager was fine but the interview with one of the executives was spending 25 minutes/30 going through each bullet point of my resume. The absolute biggest joke of an interview -- he should've read it before and asked legitimate questions instead of going through each bullet

Easy Interview

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at OpenText (Waterloo, ON) in Dec 2022

Interview

The whole process was really weird. It was for their Legal Tech / E-Discovery department. My phone call with the recruiter was a bad experience. The recruiter just called me unexpectedly one day. So, I was quite blindsided by the call. Usually, companies email you in advance to schedule a time for the phone screen. However, this recruiter did not observe such etiquette. During the phone call, the recruiter also demanded to know my salary expectations and threatened to not move forward with interview if I did not provide him a number. Most companies I interview with are ok with discussing this at a later stage of the interview. However, I suspect this must have been a low paying position, hence the pushy salary question. Also, if I had been given time to prepare for the call, I might have been able to do more research to come up with reasonable answer to the salary question. After all this, the recruiter asked me do a 1-hour interview the next day! I reluctantly agreed. I was told the interview would be with a hiring manager. I was not provided with any other details. The interview turned out to be with three interviewers instead of one and the hiring manager turned out to be a director of the department! They asked me to a few questions about my resume. However, most of the interview was just the director talking about their product and technology and explaining how this role was only for people who were willing to work with mostly dated technology like XQuery. I asked them what the next steps of the interview were and they seemed quite unsure themselves! They hadn't decided yet! I was then later sent an XQuery assignment to do, which I did. Finally, for the cherry on top, they didn't even reject me, they said this role had been cancelled and they are no longer hiring for this role. What a waste of time.
