Applications Software Technology – Why Work With Us?


Applications Software Technology LLC (AST) was founded in 1995 as a specialized Oracle E-Business Suite systems integrator with the objective of helping customers realize the full potential of their investment in Oracle Applications. It was based on the premise that the success of an enterprise wide system implementation depended on an equal measure of specialization, investment in employees, software expertise, and an in-depth understanding of the industries we serve and a client's unique business processes.

Over the course of our corporate history, AST has successfully built upon our long‐standing, core Oracle E‐Business Suite practice in concert with Oracle’s acquisitions and technology evolution to include award‐winning and recognized non‐ERP practice areas: Oracle Business Intelligence (BI), Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), Oracle Middleware, Oracle Service‐Oriented Architecture (SOA), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and Oracle Cloud Services.

We specialize in managing transformative Oracle projects and consistently deliver consulting services of the highest quality. As a result AST is recognized as a premier systems integrator and a go-to partner for Oracle.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Applications Software Technology (Dallas, TX) in December 2019.

    Interview

    First two rounds of interview with the recruiter, which was lot of boasting and high minded talk not grounded in reality. After that two technical rounds of interview. First round was with a senior manager who did not have much knowledge of my functional area. He impromptu included a hard core technical person in the phone call. Questions were very technical and the impromptu participant had no professional communication skills. The second technical round was good with some solid questions. At end of interview, no communication was received from recruiter for few weeks. I followed up with a call and recruiter said I did good in both rounds and they liked my profile. But they didn't have suitable position and are looking for another position. Why would you waste a candidates time if you don't have position in the beginning? After that followed up second time and recruiter abruptly ended call citing another call. I never heard back from AST again, no idea what happened. I would not interview with such callous company again.
