    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vendavo (Denver, CO) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR after applying online. After a 30-minute non-technical conversation with the HR person, I was invited on-site for a 1-hour interview with an engineering manager. No technical questions were asked. We mostly talked about the product they were looking to build. It felt like a lot of fluff and the interviewer did not seem to be trying to get a good idea of what my capabilities were.

    I never heard back from anyone at Vendavo, even after several weeks and multiple follow up emails sent. This is incredibly unprofessional but it seems this may be company policy judging by the other reviews here.

    My Interview process was very extensive had 2 rounds of phone interviews and one on site interview with 4 people from different team of the company.

    IT Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vendavo (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screen with the IT hiring manager was 30 minutes and we both showed mutual interest in me working there.

    Onsite: Interviewed with a panel of around 4 different people for around 30 minutes each. The interviewers seemed like they were trying to bait me into being negative, showed total lack of experience interviewing people and were more concerned about going to lunch then preforming a quality interview.

    I never received a call from HR or the hiring manager after the interview was over. I waited 2 weeks and then had to call the hiring manager on their cell phone and he was absolutely embarrassed that no one had gotten back to me. He fumbled to get off the phone promising that someone would call me back with a response the next day.

    No one ever called me back and from reading reviews this is the SOP for Vendavo. Highly unprofessional and more than likely a terrible place to work at.

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vendavo in June 2013.

    Interview

    Terrible HR and management. They do not know how to run a company and they seem not to care about their image. My interview was delayed many times with very poor excuses. This does not make the company look good at all and if this is how they make a first impression on potential employees, I don’t want to know how badly I would be treated if I actually worked there.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Vendavo in June 2014.

    Interview

    A few phone interviews followed by in-person interviews. Interviews went well, and I was told to wait to hear about next steps. It has been months, and I still haven't heard anything. Very unprofessional.

    I got a negative impression of the company during the interviews. Company seemed disorganized and confused about its goals, and employees seemed dissatisfied. I would not want to work for this company.

    They have a few rounds of on sites, first from the Director & VP. Very courteous and polite. There was a more open ended set of questions regarding Modeling and Design. Then a more specific set of questions about Linked Lists, and how you go about reversing them.

    Solutions Architect Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Vendavo (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    Very very lengthy and time consuming interview. 2 rounds of telephonic (1st one for 1 hour and the 2nd one for 1.5 hours) and then one onsite for 3 hours with 5 people. The onsite is non-stop with few mins gap for water. Interviewers were nice but the turn around time is very very long. I had to follow many times with my recruiting agency for the updates. Almost took 1 month for the above process. But didnt get any update from anyone, upon checking again vendavo said no decision has been taken (not rejected but put it in reserve) That was the most frustrating part. You should give out a decision and not to keep people on the hook.

    Interview Questions

    • Lot of questions around JVM, Oracle performance and queries. At onsite used white boards for Architecture diagrams, Queries. No coding test though.   Answer Question

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vendavo (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Super laid back and chill. More of a conversation than an interview. I went in totally prepared for a super hardcore interview, but the people who interviewed me were so laid back. I felt a little nervous for being overly formal and over-dressed. But, I explained I thought the company would have been more formal and laughed it off with the interviewer.
