Senior Systems Administrator Interview

Senior Systems Administrator
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Informatica in May 2014.

Interview Details I was fortunate to get a phone interview from HR. Then a week later the same from the hiring manager. Both individuals were very pleasant. When I found out I was not selected for an onsite interview, HR was nice enough to provide feedback on what improvements I need to make as I continue with my search for employment opportunities.

Some key technical questions related to Databases, Operating Systems, Networks and Security. DNS,DHCP, Active Directory configure New exchange.

Senior Inside Sales Representative Interview

Senior Inside Sales Representative
Austin, TX (US)

Interviewed at Informatica

Interview Details Application online. Very generic. A bit outdated. was very dissatisfied with the hiring process. I was over qualified for a position as this. I did the similar job for a larger company for years. I was promoted to a higher position. I was willing to take a pay cut and work here because it seemed like a great company and closer to home. I was told there were other candidates better qualified? I'm a top performer at my current company and if I wasn't qualified for this role I am skeptical at whom would be. Maybe they are looking for candidates who are more mediocre

Sales Consultant Interview

Sales Consultant
Nieuwegein (Netherlands)

I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Informatica in February 2010.

Interview Details Was chased for a couple of years already, being the spokesperson of a system integrator that i worked for. Informatica apparently saw value in the field experience to bring that to practice as a sales consultant. Hence they approached me for a job.

Interview Question – I received a customer case and had to prepare a small presentation on how to sell Informatica products to this customer. Most difficult question was why Informatica and not IBM or Oracle or SAP.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Easy, they made a very generous offer i couldn't refuse.
