    Corporate Accounting Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Saba Software (Dublin, CA) in July 2019.

    Interview

    I spoke to the director for 1.5 hours on the phone. She was so pushy, kept rambling, then at the end said "yu jus come hir". She writes an email to the HR and says, "this girl will come hir". I asked for a full itinerary of who I will be meeting with and didn't receive that. When I arrived to the interview, I did not know what to expect. I was put into a conference room to do a video interview with 4 of the staff members who all sounded bitter, smart aleks, and unhappy. They asked me the same question 4x which I kept answering! The director did not offer me any water and after every of my answers said that she had to confirm it with the IT person as if she didn't believe me. I figured if she is this rude and obnoxious to insult me in front of the staff at an interview, then I'm sure she will be even worse to work with!

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Saba Software.

    Interview

    Very respectful. Detailed interview with hr, hiring manager and extended team. Asked detailed questions about background, experience with marketing, presales and sales processes. Respectful hiring team. Mindful of time. Personally having the candidate present to the team and having an interactive discussion would have helped the team and the candidate measure each other.

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saba Software in August 2018.

    Interview

    The recruiter didn't call for our scheduled interview. When I messaged him, he blamed me and some problem with searching in Skype (even though he also had my phone number and with 30 seconds of effort could have called me directly). He said he was too busy to even look for time to reschedule (even it was still during the time when we would have been in the interview), and then he outsourced the work to me to look for and book time myself using their automated system.

    The self-focused lack of effort and poor customer service lines up too well with other feedback on working at Saba, so I withdrew from consideration.

    Tip - be willing to put in even a small extra effort (in this case, 30 seconds to dial a phone number would have worked) and when you fail to follow through on something, take ownership of the situation, roll up your sleeves, and do the work to fix it rather than outsource the effort to someone else.

    Also, when recruiting for HR positions, you are interacting with potential future customers for the company. The level of service you provide your candidates will be assumed to reflect the level of service the company provides their customers. Very poor opinion of Saba overall at this point, both as a potential employer and as a potential vendor.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Saba Software (Redwood City, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and 3 months later received an email from a recruiter for a phone screen.
    Recruiter was upbeat and organized. Asked I wait until after the holidays for hiring to pickup in 2016.
    I followed up in 2016, again and again and again every 2 weeks. The recruiter ignored all my emails.
    Looked up the recruiter's phone number calling the main office in Redwood City.
    Said he was in a meeting and blew me off.

    I did some research on Saba and shocked that the SEC accused SABA of accounting fraud.
    Just Google 'Former Saba Finance Chiefs to Reimburse Nearly $500,000 in Bonuses'

    Pressure to meet revenue targets might explain why trail went cold.
    Terrible experience. Next time I'll research company before applying.
