    Sales Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sungard Availability Services.

    Interview

    Very intimidating for a summer internship interview. 5 on 1 Q&A session with very little one on one time. Extremely quick and did not like the culture just from this short glimpse.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sungard Availability Services (Wayne, PA).

    Interview

    Respectful of my time; a conversation/exchange of ideas vs. a Q&A. Recruiter followed up when he said he would, and even called when there wasn't anything to report, just to let me know they hadn't forgotten about me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sungard Availability Services (Wayne, PA) in July 2019.

    Interview

    The best words to describe the process are: Disrespectful. Lack of integrity. Bizarre. A company to avoid.

    After two telephone interviews and two sets of in-person interviews with five people.

    On July 11, three days after the second interview session, I received a call and was offered a job, contingent on passing a background check and pre-employment drug test. During the call, the salary, and start date were discussed. I was told I would get more details the next day.

    When I had not heard back, I called and was told the p[erson who needed to approve the offer. After that, I got several reasons for delays but was assured the offer was still in place.

    Finally, on August 2, I found out they were interviewing additional candidates for the position but was assured I was still the top choice.

    Five weeks later, no one called to tell me what happened. They just ignored me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sungard Availability Services.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Sungard but decided to accept an offer elsewhere. Following the delivery of my notice to their HR department, one of the reps immediately called and left a hostile voicemail---and claimed the manner in which I followed up was very unprofessional in their eyes, and that I made a mistake in not choosing this role. I found this to be quite insulting.

    Field Marketing Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sungard Availability Services.

    Interview

    I applied via LinkedIn and within a few hours the HR person reached out asking for my contact info. Not sure if applying via the app (which showed my contact info) didn’t allow him to see it or not. I replied back and we scheduled a time to speak same day. The call lasted 2 minutes. He asked me if I knew what Sungard did and after I gave him the description he corrected me by saying they are the global leader of disaster recovery. He then asked which company it was that I practiced Field Marketing and I told him the titles and geographies I covered. He then asked me what I was looking for pay wise and I gave him my number and asked if that was aligned with their package and he rudely interrupted me and said “STOP STOP this position is $96k and there are no incentives.” I appreciate the honesty but think he could have been more polite/professional. To his credit he said he would keep me in mind if something else in my range opened up. We were not terribly off but if a global leader caps compensation for this type of role at that dollar amount without any incentives then we are just not a fit.
