    Interview

    A phone conversation regarding more high level HR type questions and information, an online personality quiz, video interview questions, a couple phone screenings covering mostly technical questions. Final part is they fly you to Boston to do more interviews and a presentation. Boston interviews covered in depth technical questions in one, experience oriented questions in another.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Pegasystems (Cambridge, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Swift, well managed, and overall delightful. The team was well informed about the roll and its requirements. Everyone was warm and welcoming. Pega is a fast paced metrics driven environment, and that was clearly articulated throughout the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pegasystems (Cambridge, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I did a phone interview that went really well and got a call back to do another interview with the VP. The interview seemed to go well and he seemed very engaged. He told me he would let me know within the week. Two weeks had passed and I followed up and the recruiter apologized for not getting back to me and told me she would get back to me within the day. It's been over a month and I haven't heard back. I had other offers already so I decided not to follow-up again since it was extremely unprofessional that they would promise to get back and then never did.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Pegasystems in January 2016.

    Interview

    I had the initial recruiter interview which was fine. Then I did a test around what others thought about me and what I thought of myself. I had to a video interview with a program that provided questions and I had 5 seconds to prep and respond in a minute. I had no idea of the questions and some of the questions were about another product that was not related to the position I applied for. Needless to say I was not comfortable with format of talking into my computer at no one and not asking follow up questions. There was no way to go back and fix the answers. This interview should have been by video conference. They could not meet my salary demands and do not hire for lead positions. This process was less than pleasant and I would not recommend working for this company.

    Operations/Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Pegasystems.

    Interview

    The first live interview went fine - short and to the point. The 2nd round of interviews were a mess. When I first sat down they asked me if I could stay late because the first person couldn't meet at the last minute, then the person who was supposed to meet me was 30 minutes late and he gave what I think was an apology. Then I was asked to meet an HR person who proceeded to ask some very vague behavioral questions and who seemed to have a hard time asking direct questions. After asking a few times what the next steps were I received vague answers. Was hoping for a more positive experience; hope others did.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pegasystems.

    Interview

    I submited a resume / cover letter through their site and received a screening request from ain internal recruiter. I had two recruiter interviews before my application went to the hiring manager .. who turned me down.

    The first screensing interview was simply an intake where they asked me for infomration, salary preferences, relocation assistance, and some basic questions.

    The second screening interview asked a couple more basic questions. there were two postitions that i qualified for; so, they wanted to feel me out for which i preferred and if i'd consider the second. They also started talking my salary request down, and seeing if i would relocate without assistance.

    They seem to move at a very fast pace. My second screening interview was the next day and, if the hiring manager wanted to meet me, they would fly me up a couple days later. They gave me the impression that the entire process would be completed within a week ... maybe two.

    Interview Questions

    • General questions about my background, where i wanted to go with my career, why i was interested in their company, and why I wanted to leave my current position. Nothing surprising.   Answer Question
