    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sungard Availability Services (San Ramon, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screen with an Engineering Manager. Asked about previous projects I had worked on and had me explain the various technical aspects of each of them. No coding questions.

    Was then brought on-site for a round of interviews with members of each team looking for interns. Each interview was short - no more than 30 minutes. Was asked to write code by only 1 interviewer - the rest mostly wanted to know what projects I worked on in school.

    Interview Questions

    • None - all of the questions were straightforward and easy to understand and answer.   Answer Question

    Network Security Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sungard Availability Services (San Antonio, TX) in January 2018.

    Interview

    The interviewers were entirely phone-based, which is fine as the role is work-from-home. Scheduling the interviews was messy as each call needed to be coordinated with a recruiter and need to meet multiple time zones across the US. It was never clear who was hosting the next call, making it a challenging understand what role was being represented. A couple calls were missed entirely on their end due to miscommunication between Sungard AS and the recruiter.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were based on a deep understanding of protocols and open to conversation in exploring answers.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sungard Availability Services (Wayne, PA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Call with the future manager first, followed by multi-person interview with the team. Face to face interview with the manager again. Some skill/personality questions and a brain-teaser to see thinking process. It surprised me to interview with five future coworkers at once, but was useful to get a sense of the people I'd be working with.

    Senior Storage Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sungard Availability Services (Wayne, PA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Everything is done over the phone. The process is easy as none of the interviewers seem technical. HR takes forever to complete the deal once selected. There are multiple simple phone interviews. They seem desperate to get any candidates with experience so if you know stuff you are good to go. Always ask for an extra weeks vacation you will get it. Ask for a higher end salary they are desperate for employees due to their awful reputation for treating engineers poorly.
