    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Qualys in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was blindsided with a full phone interview that was earlier advised to be just an initial screening call. Interviewer doesn't seem too professional. Doesn't listen. Interviewer seems more interested in giving criticism remarks rather than observing. I have answered each question well with logical support but was told I do not qualified with because I don't sound comfortable enough. I wonder who can be comfortable after being asked with ridiculous non related questions. Interviewer advised me he would recommend my profile to the BD department instead as I would qualify there but as expected interviewer did not keep his words. Thought I was applying for a high school summer job. I question the integrity of Qualys.

    C/C++ Senior Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Qualys in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed twice over Phone/Skype. HR handled the scheduling of interviews professionally. Interviewer explained in detail about what they do and what they're looking for. He also explained about the project they're hiring for. Asked about what projects I was working on in current company and general and design related questions about the projects. Interview process felt streamlined but in the end, I have got no reply at all after a 2 week-long assignment and was a bit disappointed with that.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pune (India)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Qualys (Pune (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The entire process was professionally managed. The interviews were scheduled on a timely basis and my timezone was respected.There were four telephonic rounds, followed by three in person. It was heartening to note that each interviewer spoke the same things about the company and the product line - there were no contradictions or anomalies as are usually the case when one is interviewing with multiple people for the same position. They invested time in giving a demo of the product which was very useful. They also were candid with sharing information and allowed ample time for me to ask questions. It was truly one of the most professional interview experiences that I have been through.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about my experiences in product management in earlier companies. Also, there were situational questions based on requirement trade-offs, sales situations etc.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Qualys (Pune (India)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied Qualys through linkedin.
    Interview difficulty level is High in qualys.

    Round 1 - Telephonic discussion
    Interviewer asked me about basic questions related Selenium, Selenium Grid and Core java. Actually at the end of question's answer if He was not satisfied then he was saying that he expected (he gave answer) from me. I mean c'mon how can someone expect answer that he want until and unless it is direct question.
    Anyway it was 20 min discussion and I cleared this round.

    Round 2 - F2F discussion
    The same guy started F2F again with me. Started with Project related framework and asked me to explain automation framework architecture. After few minutes, other guy joined with him and they both started asking me question on automation framework. After that some questions related core java programming asked. Almost after more than an hour third guy entered in room and second guy left interview in between(may be he has meetings) and then that third guy started asking me questions. I found one thing that the first guy was literally using his cell phone (may be surfing/whatsapp) which I found annoying. If you asked candidate not to use mobile in between then why you?
    Anyway at 1 Hr 40 Mins interview ended and asked me to leave for the day and told that HR ll get back to me.

    Result: They liked my skills but I was not selected. (Mail from HR) :)

    All the Best
