    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OpenText (Reading, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Moronic in the extreme. Applied direct to them in response to on-line ad. They arranged telephone interview, which was nothing more than nonsense hard-sell which then took a positively bizarre turn.

    Interview Questions

    • They arranged telephone interview with HR. Sent 20 mins telling me what a great company it is, and how I would be a great fit. Then ambushed me by saying they would not take things any further unless I agreed my salary there and then. Would not tell me what they were offering, would not give me an hour to research and come back to them with a figure (despite saying there was a great bonus scheme and many other benefits etc, which obviously one would need to consider - no legal dept salary info on Glassdoor). Refused to tell me why they were doing this, and if they thought refusing to negotiate with someone who is applying for a job where negotiation is part of the jobspec is sensible.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at OpenText in January 2012.

    Interview

    This is a tricky hiring process because OpenText outsources their HR to a company called SourceRight Solutions in the US. The initial interview was with HR, it was a simple screening of my qualifications. I couldnt ask a lot of questions because the interviewer wasnt too familiar with the position (1st red flag).

    The next interview was with the Hiring Manager, an actual OpenText employee. She called, but asked me to call back; to save a few pennies on the call. Her words, not mine.(2nd red flag). The interview was typical with a job decription and background review, it lasted 1hour; It seemed to go well. However, there was some confusion if i would operate in Canada, US east coast, or west coast (it is a virtual position). That can be a little tricky if you cant work odd hours to compensate for the time zones. (3rd red flag).

    I next interviewed with another dept manager, and that was more like a reaffirmation of my skills. He too knew little of the position, since he was new to his own position, one week. He ended the call saying HR would be in touch in a day or two.

    After 10 days, i reached out to the hiring manager, she made no reply to my voicemail or email. After 2 weeks, i made several attempts to contact HR. They too made no reply to voicemail (they never answer their phones) or email. I was put off by their HR outsourced company. They give you no more than 48 hours notice for a pending interview. After seeing other reviews, i see this is common. I guess thats ok if your unemployeed and have oodles of free time to juggle your schedule. But i am more disappointed with the fact that when you have a question (who doesnt in an interview process), there is no one that will answer your call or reply to your email.

    After 3 weeks (so much for the "day or two") since my last interview with no word from anyone at OpenText or SourceRight Solutions, I accepted an offer from another firm.
    After reading the reviews on this site for OpenText, im glad things worked out for the best, for me.

    Principal Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderabad (India)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OpenText (Hyderabad (India)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was top down approach. First Senior manager took my interview then manager, followed by team lead and HR. In the first round itself they asked me about any offers I had in hand and told existing offer. After 5 hours of interviews, HR informed that I cleared all the rounds and need to come again after 3 days for final discussion since someone was not available on that day. After two days I got a invite for final discussion and just before I left on that day, someone called me said that person was on leave and asked me to not come. Then there was no communication for next two weeks. When inquired after two weeks, they said that position is not open.

    The answer is very disgusting, if they don't have openings then why did they call for interview? if they have problem with the package which I told in the first round itself why did they take remaining rounds?. They way they took my interview does not give good impression on OpenText. I never prefer to take any interview with this company in future
