    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saama Technologies.

    Interview

    Phone interview and then an in-person interview. The first panel was with senior management folks, who asked questions like "can you tell us about your professional history?" and "what are some projects you've done?". They told me there would be no technical questions when I spoke with their recruiter over the phone, but the second panel was with some of their higher level developers and they asked you to write SQL queries and to sort an array.

    Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    This was just a phone interview. The recruiter would not let me get a word in and he spoke over me with a very thick accent and sounded far away. He was too aggressive, tried to bully me into taking a huge pay cut and agree to it. It was one sided for sure. When I declined he sounded insulted.

    Data Scientist/New College Graduate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Saama Technologies (Campbell, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Horrible HR. He would say he would call back in 5 minutes and hours later he still didn't call back. Interviews themselves were nice.Prescreening, talked with the CTO, and then an onsite interview, interviewing with the head of the AI department and the head of the Insurance department individually. I was then given a take home assignment to turn in after a few days. After 3 months of no response, 3 months later I was told I was going to be hired. Then suddenly they said they will push it 1 month forward, "on April 1st". And then suddenly they call me last minute to come meet with the head of the Insurance that day,saying I should uber there and they will pay me back. This guy gives me an interview strangely. After that I get no details about when my exact start date is; HR keeps dodging my calls and makes excuses. When April finally starts, HR head tells me that they will give me my offer letter "tomorrow" and they're setting up my laptop and etc. A week passes by and he makes the same excuse. So at that point I realize they're not interested, so I stopped contact with them. And they never contacted me again. They could have told me they weren't interested instead of stringing me along for 2+ months telling me I was hired. On top of that, they never paid me back for the Uber ride they made me take and promised to pay back. So overall a negative experience.

    Big Data Solutions Architect Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Saama Technologies (Campbell, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Initially got a call from a recruiter that there was interest by multiple hiring managers for my resume. Got set up to talk to one team, which the recruiting coordinator set up. I tried asking the recruiting coordinator about the teams that I was specifically interviewing for, but she said that she did not have access to that information, and that the initial recruiter must have set up these interviews only based on common interests between the team and my resume. The recruiter and I shared a couple laughs about this, and we still proceeded to the interview, where he said that I would be a good fit. Once we both agreed, there was an onsite interview with the hiring manager and three other development managers. It was scheduled back-to-back, 45 minutes each, one person at a time. They were informative, asked good questions, it felt relaxed and not difficult. I felt this reflects the culture of their workplace and am looking forward to working there. The recruiting team was always in touch with me throughout the process and kept me informed all the way from start till offer was issued.
