    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PTC (San Diego, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Super efficient. Took less than 2 weeks total. Phone screen followed by in-person interviews. They accommodated my travel/vacation schedule. Heard back from them the very next day after each interview. Negotiation was fair - felt like a win-win. The people there seemed very friendly and hardworking. Not a place to coast or work 10-5.

    Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PTC (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview took approx 4 weeks. Phone interview with recruitment consultant was very generic about what I did in my past life, about their company and that the recruitment process will be ... long and tedious. Second skype interview with a Director went also well and again it was generic enough and very simplistic. The 3rd one was with an internal expert and it was focused on a very specific area instead of being generic to see if the candidate was "good enough".

    Interview Questions

    • Lots and lots and lots of extremely focused questions in a very narrow field of IT   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PTC (South Bend, IN) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen and onsite interview. It was quick and easy. The interviewer was very casual. Nothing too nerve racking or difficult. It was a pretty smooth conversation. No brain teasers or anything like that. Questions are very straightforward and generic behavioral questions like tell me about a time when x happened.

    One 45 minute phone call (have heard of in-person interviews as well). Two employees were on the phone, switched off asking questions. Both were nice, wanted to have a conversation. Emphasis was placed on interest in technology and PTC's business.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PTC (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me and there was a small phone interview to get a feel if I would be a great fit for the company. I provided a salary range that would take me to leave my current employer. The recruiter thought it was within their range and continued the process. I talked to the hiring manager over the phone and we agreed to an interview. The in person interview went well and I fully expected and received an offer.

    The recruiter gave me a call back and extended an offer that was 10% lower than my salary minimum. I declined the offer because it was lower than my minimum but expressed interest in finding common ground. The recruiter told me they would get back to me to see if they can increase their offer and/or PTO. The recruiter never gave me a call back. I called the recruiter back after 3 days and he said they would be interviewing other candidates and he would get back to me regardless in a few days. I did not bother to check in a second time.

    It is clear the company is not interested in negotiating on anything to bridge a gap and hoped that I would be willing to work for less than what would take me to work for them. After reading the reviews and their job benefits, it was a wise decision because it is clear they do not invest in their employees who stay there beyond 3 years.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at PTC (Blaine, MN).

    Interview

    Very straight forward, general interview. They sit you in a room with a recruiter and a principal level employee and ask you very straight forward questions about yourself that you would expect from an interview. Nothing was out of the ordinary.
