    Pega Developer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Pegasystems (New York, NY) in April 2020.

    Interview

    I got a call from Pegasystems recruiter Hyderabad saying pegasystems is hiring java candidates to train them into Pega. Since I already had an offer, I decided to move on with other company. But now after exploring Pega PRPC, I found interest and pursued CSA course and got certified. But recently when I contacted the recruiters, they said they are not hiring java candidates to train them into Pega. Can you please help me with this confusion? I really want to shift my skillset and career into Pega. Please help

    Interview

    I had a phone call after I submitted my resume and cover letter.
    There were several questions about my academic background and experiences. Those were pretty much what I expected.
    Pretty chill overall.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Pegasystems.

    The process felt disorganized, hectic, and rushed. I didn't feel that the recruiter or the hiring manager had adequately prepared for the conversation with me or the search in general.

    Senior Solutions Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pegasystems in February 2020.

    Interview

    Phone interviews with this company have convinced me they don't have their act together. They claim to be business process experts but their hiring and recruiting process is a complete mess. Recruiters are highly specialized and have no real sense of what's happening around the company in terms of the strategic direction or the kinds of personnel needed to execute on that vision. I've also noticed recruiters don't have a technical background and aren't really equipped to evaluate candidates. The questions they ask seem random and they don't really seem to be listening or grasping what you're saying. My advice: stay away.

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Pegasystems.

    Interview

    I wish I could give you more info, however, after I was asked about interview times and responded, the recruiter never called or emailed me back. Pretty much one of the most disrespectful things that can be done.

    Senior Manager of Cloud Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alpharetta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Pegasystems (Alpharetta, GA) in December 2019.

    Interview

    A couple of phone screenings and then a 3 hour interview process with 6 people. Overall it was informative and the people were knowledgeable and like able. Seemed like the overall process went well overall. However, what killed it for me was there was absolutely no follow up, which is not entirely uncommon for candidates not chosen. But after a 3 hour interview where I literally took PTO for the process you would think there would be this slight courtesy. Please, Pegasystems, do a better job of understanding people’s time commitment to the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • Several of the questions were situational: what would you do in this situation, etc?   Answer Question
