    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saba Software (Austin, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online (no cover letter). Hiring manager emailed me a few weeks later. I talked to her on the phone, then came in person. She liked me and referred me to her boss. I talked to her on the phone. Interview went really well and I got an offer a few weeks later.

    • There were none of the lame "what's you're greatest weakness" questions. Just a two-way conversation about my background, the company, and what I wanted.   Answer Question

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    No Offer
    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Saba Software.

    Interview

    I interviewed for Sr. Product Manager in 2014. Applied online and received a call from the recruiter within a week. She forwarded the call to the hiring manager, who I enjoyed talking to. Heard nothing back, and I sent a followup email. I was invited for the onsite interview. Met the VP, 2 directors, one Product Manager and 1 UX designer. These were more of conversations than interviews, and I enjoyed talking to all of them.

    Never heard back from the team, despite multiple followup emails.
