    NPD Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cary, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sage Products (Cary, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I will start with the warning before describing the interview. - I interviewed with the NPD team. Less than two weeks after my second interview, someone from this team communicated to my current employer that I had interviewed there. So, my boss and bosses' boss are now aware of this. It's been 3 weeks since my boss sat me down and asked me about this so time will tell what happens at my current job. This is a clear violation of professional courtesy and puts into question the ethics of this team and/or company. May the interviewee beware...

    Straight forward panel style interview with mostly behavioral based questions. Multiple stages starting with a phone screen with HR, then a panel style interview with the working team, and finally an open discussion/meet and greet with the hiring manager and management team.

    The interview went well and everyone was professional and engaging (to this point). Communication was good with HR though the process took several weeks. This is understandable given that many members of the team had/have busy travel schedules. Did not get the offer, but did appreciate the effort from HR to call and personally convey the message with feedback on the interview.

    I was very positive with Sage even though I didn't get the offer UNTIL word got back to my current employer that I interviewed there. Very disappointing.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sage Products (Cary, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    There were several levels of interviews, initially with HR which went very well, a second with a VP and a third round with a panel of people and a fourth with another VP. The initial interviews were of average difficulty but they asked me to prepare a 90 day plan, which took quite a bit of effort, and they never once referenced it after it was submitted. The panel interview and last VP interview were more in depth. They were all great people to meet and I left feeling very optimistic and was told I'd hear something within a few days. I've not heard anything from them in months, not even a form letter to say I didn't get the job. Very unprofessional. Integrity is apparently not important to the HR people there. Step up people and realize you do owe applicants some respect even if we weren't your top pick.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sage Products (McHenry, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First round of interviews was incredibly positive, both HR and interviewer made it seem like I was their top choice. Came back for the second round, it was very positive and was told that I would be contacted the next day. This was several months ago and all attempts to contact them have failed.

    Data Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sage Products (Cary, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was lengthy, multiple visits and meeting with different levels of management. The opportunity to spend a day in the office on a 'ride-along' was something I never encountered before. Overall it was a positive experience and allows the candidate to learn as much as possible about the company and the position. It also allows the company to assess the candidate further outside of the formal interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sage Products (Cary, IL).

    Interview

    The interview process was very in depth. I was scheduled for a phone interview then interviewed in person with Human Resources and then scheduled with the hiring manager. I was also scheduled for a panel interview and a number of management personnel who I would be working with if hired. While it took quite a bit of time, I feel it was very thorough and I was able to get a good feel for the types of people and positions I would be working with.
