    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SciQuest (Morrisville, NC) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was set up by phone via staffing agency. I was contacted via phone by manager, about a week later live interview conducted by 2 qualified peers at the workplace. Questions were well thought, interview was technical, complex, well planned. I was able to answer most questions with a good response time, I handled the technical aspect, including a hands-on challenge, with relative ease. Overall, it was one of the better interview experiences I've had.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SciQuest (Morrisville, NC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    3, phone interviews and then flown to Morrisville, NC.

    -broad interview with manager... Nothing of substance. This person was super late to the interview on the phone so we chatted for 15 minutes and I insisted we talk again when they had more time.

    -spoke that following Monday as the previous one was a Friday. With no indication I was what they were looking for, I received a note from Group VP who asked to speak elite me.

    -conversation with Group VP who was very kind. More o a conversation about experience vs Q & A which was more refreshing.

    - next day was contacted by HR and then by Sales Operations Assistant to set up travel plans where I received the details to do ANY presentation following the guidelines which were almost none (details below)

    - received a call the next day , upon returning from their offices. With little feedback but did not get job.

    Interview Questions

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SciQuest (Morrisville, NC).

    Interview

    I was linked up to the company through a recruiter. The phone interviews went very fast, and I was told, extremely well. Interviews were with 3 VPs and 1 Director. Visited the Corporate HQ for the final step, where I was to role play a sales presentation. The presentation went fairly well, except in the eyes of one individual, who showed up late, and spent the entire presentation going over my resume; it appeared, for the first time. A few questions were asked that are really outside the scope of introductory sales presentations, I didn't answer them well in their eyes, so the process stopped there.

    Product Quality Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cary, NC

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SciQuest (Cary, NC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    They responded about 2 months after I applied - May 2014. Got a phone interview, they scheduled an in-person interview 2 days later for the following Friday. There was a panel interview with a QA person and a developer, two 30 minute interviews with managers that I would be reporting to. They made an offer that Monday. They do the background check after making the offer. The managers were looking forward to having me do their language localization testing alongside the job I was interviewing for. I was shocked that their HR department would throw me away because of one question, on the application it asked "Omit minor traffic offenses", so I left off mine, and on the background check, it said "Put down anything you have ever been convicted of", so I put down my conviction. They called after the check came back and talked to their VP and rescinded their offer because of this ONE discrepancy, I tried to explain that their question was a misunderstanding. They forced me to tell them my salary at my current job (which I wanted to keep to myself), and I do not like the treatment of their HR department.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SciQuest (Cary, NC) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with HR was pretty typical. She said she was going to recommend that I be interviewed in person. A few weeks went by and some follow ups I sent but no response. Finally about a month later she called to set up the in person.

    In person was 4 interviews lasting 30 mins each then a conclusion meeting with the HR rep. All pretty standard PM type questions. Conversations went well in my opinion. At the conclusion the HR rep said they hope to make a decision in a week or 2 and that their policy is they will let me know either way if I was selected. A week later she called to say the position was put on hold. I followed up a month later and she promptly responded that it was still on hold. Another month went by and I sent a follow up to check in again about the status of the position. This time no response at all. It is unfortunate that they cannot take the time to sent a quick email to let you know something. Other than the way it was left with no response at all, the interview process was very good. They just need to improve on their communcations.

    Interview Questions
