    Very interesting interview process. Had my first interview over the phoen while I was standing on my roof looking at hail damage I sustained that day. Very urgent need so I had to rearrange both leaving for a vacation and my return in order to make it all happen, but it worked out and Sapphire felt like my advocate all the way.

    Project Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Uncomplicated interview process over 2 sessions before presentation to the client for onsite interview. The company did a good job of making sure I was a good fit for the position. There was a technical component in the interview focused on the specifics of managing projects, dealing with stakeholders, issues. The account manager was very engaging before my interview with the client, throughout the onboarding process at the client's and afterwards.

    it was a good deal but then it was a consulting role.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woburn, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sapphire Technologies (Woburn, MA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I was impressed with Sapphire's professionalism. They were quick to respond to my inquiry about the position, and during the interview they were very relaxed and open/honest throughout the whole meeting. They even brought in a fellow Technical Recruiter to give me an unbiased inside scoop.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I turned down the position because I have 4 years experience, and should have known this was an entry level position with only a $30k base, and an OTE of less than $50k annually. Plus the sales environment is phone based/cold calling, short sales cycle, and very very transactional. Great position for someone looking to start in sales, but not for a seasoned rep.

    Sapphire has a lengthy hiring process, and you'll meet with multiple people. First, either through a referral or applying on their web site, the manager doing the hiring will interview you on the phone.
