QA Automation Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pleasanton, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Workday (Pleasanton, CA) in February 2016.

Interview

Initial phone screening by hiring manager followed by 3 hours onsite.

Everyone was very friendly. Recruiter told me after 4 days of onsite that everyone liked me very much and offered me the position. All good so far. The offer was average. I was trying to get little more than offered and recruiter emailed me later that my offer has been REVOKED. What a shock for me. One side, everyone liked me and other side they revoked offer for negotiation.

Be extremely careful during negotiation.

Interview Questions

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Workday (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    face2face with 8 people - 2 afternoons.
    First time I have been interviwed to one particular team, then the head thought that I could fit to another team (big big mistake) , so I went to second round of interview, to be honest, was not the big deal, I had 8/9 person to interview, at no stage I felt stressed by question or by the situation. I have been in touch with recruiter as final person to discuss with, and I francly asked for 10K gross more the salary adbertised, and they were happy to gave them to me.
    I resigned after few month. I could not handle the thecnology XpressO.
