    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zilliant in February 2017.

    Interview

    At the start of the interview, they began asking questions about the resume that has been submitted. Those questions were very personalized and were based on the resume submitted. Not very many but just getting a feel for the interviewer. Then they have a technical question. The technical question was a database question with several parts: writing a schema, then questions about the schema that you write.

    Interview Questions

    • Design a database schema: There are salesmen and products. The salesmen should be associated with the products they sell. They provide a data sample to insert into the schema. For example:

      Salesmen:
      John Wick, 1
      Starlord, 2
      Groot, 3
      John Wick, 4

      Products:
      Applesauce, 1, 10$
      Death Star, 2, 4000000$
      iPhone, 3, 600$
      TV, 4, 300$   Answer Question
    • Using the schema created above, write a query to return a salesman and the total amount of products they have sold.   Answer Question
    • Using the schema created above, write a query to return the single largest product for a salesman.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Zilliant (Austin, TX) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Was contacted by one of the recruiting heads. The process was very slow. Called me for an office visit where I talked to 5-6 people which included 4 managers and 1 pricing scientist. The interviews were all resume based and they are mostly looking for your interest. The people are really friendly and nothing intimidating even if you know you are gonna talk to 6 people.

    Good people and good company!

    Accountmanager Interview

    Average Interview

    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Zilliant (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Ik ervoer het wervingsproces als zeer traag, lang en aan het einde namen ze helemaal niemand aan!

    In eerste instantie klonk het allemaal erg mooi met veel verantwoordelijkheden, mogelijkheden en alles leek ok,

    Helaas is het eind zoals bij de meeste bedrijven die mensen aannemen of mensen aan lijken te nemen.

    Te veel bedrijven verspillen de zeer kostbare tijd van senior sales professionals.

    Stop die onzin en start een wervingsproces pas als je mensen gaat aannemen!
