    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Syncsort (Woodcliff Lake, NJ (US)) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews then a Friday AM in-office interview. Interviewers included managers, architects, department VP, and a couple of coworkers who were working on the type of jobs that you are applying for. They were very nice people, and the interview even included a lunch interview session. Not really a technical interview but it may already change with new management this year.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you overcome conflicts with coworkers?   Answer Question
    • Describe the architecture of the project that you had worked on.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very smooth. They won't pay you like NYC but given their less-demanding work hours should be a good fit for folks who need work-life balance.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Syncsort (Woodcliff Lake, NJ (US)) in January 2009.

    Interview

    An impressive number of interviewers preceded an offer letter. There were 2 phone interviews, one which was highly technical. Then having 6 in-person interviews with at least 3 oral technical quizzes. The process itself wasn't intimidating but the length of it was a surprise. Luckily, their decision came very quickly and an offer letter meeting my expectations was extended.

    Interview Questions

    • Please design a enterprise level storage system with redundancy, here's a piece of paper.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was very useful to have another offer outside Syncsort to be able to assist during negotiations. The offer was upped to meet my expectations.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Syncsort (Burlington, MA (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    The process was semi-extensive, with an initial email from an in-house recruiter asking background questions on skill set, experience, etc. Multiple emails exchanged on these matters.

    The 2nd phase was a phone call w/ the same recruiter, re-visiting my answers, and also asking a few new questions concerning accounts gained, and methodologies used in my past experience. This was followed up by another shorter phone call verifying (yet again( my skill set.

    the 3rd phase was in in-person interview with the hiring manager that basically re-hashed all the past information discussed with the recruiter, and him telling me more about the company - as well as informing me there was "no doubt" I can perform the job well if hired.

    At this point - I had spent a bit over 4 hours discussing the position, my experience, and how how well I would fit into the organization.

    After leaving the in-person interview I sent a professional follow up note to the recruiter and hiring manager as well.

    - And that was it. No response from either person, no follow up, not even a "thanks for taking the time".

    It's 2018 now, there are many quick and easy ways to stay professional -email, text, phone call....and after all the time spent answering questions, discussing strategy, and speaking to key skill sets....nothing.

    At the very least an organization that holds itself out to be upcoming, professional, and cutting edge could spend an additional five minutes to inform you of their decision - but obviously this organization doesn't.

    I firmly believe the lack of professionalism and courtesy is a glimpse into the soul and core beliefs of a company - and the glimpse I've had of this company speak volumes.
