    Technical Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ventera (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    Just your run-of-the-mill interview process - I personally was interviewed by four people ranging from HR to technical personnel - and also the CEO. Fairly simple questions; mainly concentrated on my resume and walked through my project experience and college experience. no questions that tested my technical expertise, no whiteboard question, no logical/critical thinking questions. A better word might be "conversation" rather than "Interview"

    Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ventera in October 2015.

    Interview

    Emailed them my resume, then I was asked to interview on site. They have a nice office with nice amenities, but the interview process seemed fairly pointless. You do meet with the CEO which was cool, and he seemed genuinely interested in the conversation. The other interviewers;however, did nothing to establish whether or not I was a good candidate. One interviewer was 15 minutes late which is unprofessional. No technical skills were assessed, and they could not fill the 30 minute blocks with substantial questions.

    I did receive an offer, but they undercut my asking salary significantly and cited the great health benefits and pto as compensation. Give me a break, every company I have interviewed with gave great health benefits and PTO, Ventera is not a special case. They underpay their analysts, especially with the cost of living in DC.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ventera (Reston, VA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Went into an interview with about 8 other people. Some were applying for software roles, others for more business oriented positions. It was stressful seeing other applicants in person and thinking I had to "compete" with them during an otherwise enjoyable lunch. Interviewed with several individuals - software team, HR, and the CEO. I appreciated that the CEO was taking time to speak to new hires.

    Reached out to recruiter directly, was contacted to interview shortly after. Was interviewed by ~4 different people, some on the technical side, some on the nontechnical side.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    Twice now in the past few months, I have been in the interview queue at Ventera, with interviews both on the phone and in person. On both occasions, I was then notified that they had decided not to fill the position.
    I am somewhat disappointed, not just that the positions were not available, but that they used quite a bit of my time for what were apparently not serious positions.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions followed mostly standard behavioral interviewing techniques.   Answer Question

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reston, VA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ventera (Reston, VA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Ventera after submitting my resume at my university's fall career fair. They went straight away to inviting me down for an interview, which was a very unique experience. About two weeks after initial contact I drove down to their main offices in Reston, VA for an on-site interview. I would have preferred to get housing or travel compensation as I had to drive a good distance, but the interview made it worth it.

    Day started at 9:00am with a presentation by the HR manager about the purpose and culture of the company and the various opportunities they provide. She was very thurough in explaining the various perks for the positions. I was joined by three other college candidates, and this was one of multiple days that they were holding interviews

    After the presentation, we were each given a small conference room and had four people rotate in 30-minute periods to interview us. Three of the people were either senior developers or projet managers. The questions were mostly behavioural, tell us about projects you have worked on, how do you like to work with others, tell us about some aspect of programming, etc. The very notable thing about Ventera's interview process is that you get to meet with the CEO, Robert Acosta. He is an all around staand-up guy and I heard nothing but great things about him, and getting to talk to him was a real treat.

    After the interviews we got taken to lunch with two recent college grads who now work at Ventera. They were very easy to talk to and seemed to give a favorable impression of the company. Day ended at around 2:15.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ventera (Reston, VA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I had to go through 5 30-minute interviews with people form various teams. The interview questions seemed pretty repetitive. However, it was really cool to have a 30 minute interview with the CEO of the company.
