    Big Data Solutions Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Campbell, CA
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    Pre-Sales Manager, Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Campbell, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Saama Technologies (Campbell, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I started the application process by being interviewed for a pre-sales manager. I had 1 phone interview, followed by 2 in person interviews each for 1 hour. After a silence of a few weeks, I heard back that they thought I'd be a good fit for another requirement they had recently created. I had a 30 min phone interview with the VP for the new requirement before being made an offer for project manager on the delivery/implementation team.

    My hiring manager turned out to be one of my in person interviewers who found me a fit for a requirement he had on his team.

    Interview Questions

    Hadoop Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Saama Technologies in January 2015.

    Interview

    The most unprofessional interview of my life. Engineer missed first appointment (emailed hours later offering to do it at 11PM my time, 9PM his time, which I declined), then called Saturday morning after missing the second appointment (Friday) after sending no email or voicemail. The recruiter who scheduled the screen never replied to any of the messages I sent informing her of both missed appointments. It was clear to me they didn't respect me or their company's image. I ended the process there.
