    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sierra-Cedar in August-2015.

    Interview

    The initial communication was via email with an SC recruiter, who handled high level screening, requirements, and coordinated subsequent interviews.
    The interview process included two detailed phone calls with AVP & VP level leadership. Both calls exceeded one-hour and focused on personal background, the role of this position within the company and various what-if type of scenario discussions.
    I next met with both interviewers in person to finalize and discuss an offer. The entire process was handled very quickly and efficiently: approximately four weeks start to finish.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sierra-Cedar in February-2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick. The process was expedited for me since I had worked with several Sierra-Cedar consultants on other projects and they recommended me for this position. I had a series of phone conversations with a recruiter, peer consultants, and a resource manager. Everyone I spoke with was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. As I progressed through the process, they helped sell me on Sierra-Cedar.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions revolved around my job history, my knowledge of Workday, and my career aspirations. They also asked about my comfort level with telecommuting and whether I was okay with business travel.   Answer Question

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Sierra-Cedar (New York, NY (US)) in July-2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, a few days later received an email from a recruiting manager requesting availability for an initial phone interview

    Sent a technical exercise for me to complete within a few hours ( this determines whether or not you'll be placed in a junior or senior role based on how you perform on the technical exercise

    Went over the technical exercise with another team member to discuss my though process around the technical exercise and to discuss my experience with the platform

    30 minute phone call with Director

    Face-to-face interview with Sr. Manager

    In-between this time, received an email from the recruiter that they are waiting on contracts to be won, and that it will take a few months to finish the HR process ( Would have been nice to let me know that beforehand)

    A couple of months go by with the recruiter in contact every 2-3 weeks or so

    30 minute phone call with VP

    Waited a week or two to hear back as there were issues coordinating schedules for the phone calls as members of Sr. Management were on travel or on client sites and had limited availability to move the process forward

    30 minute phone call with SVP or Practice Manager

    30 minutes phone with another person in Sr. Management

    Finally got an offer call scheduled, but received two other competitive offers with companies who had a more streamlined and efficient HR process and they were ready to make a move before the holiday season.

    Interview Questions

    • I've never dealt with a company who had such a long HR process. I was as patient as I could be because I thought it was a great fit, however, be aware that they will initiate the process with you as if you will think you may start the job within a few weeks, but that's not the case. There is something to be said, when it takes months to get contracts signed, makes you think the company is not as stable as they say they are. The folks I talked to were pleasant, so you're definitely dealing with professional and courteous people, I just wish the HR process didn't take a back seat for so long, especially when it's overall a good fit. To sum it all up, it was a timing discrepancy and it happens so what's meant to be will eventually be. Also keep in mind, before an actual offer is on paper, there is an offer call that pretty much happens first where you discuss the details of the offer. Doesn't really help when you've got other offers on paper to evaluate.

      Because the process took so long, it was a waste of my time, effort, and energy so with that, it was a negative experience for me. Folks, be sure to address this on the initial phone call with the recruiter so that you do not waste your time.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Had two other competitive offers to evaluate in hand, and no written offer from Sierra-Cedar, only that we are strongly interested and are preparing for an offer call.

    Senior Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sierra-Cedar.

    Interview

    Endless emails, and three face to face meetings over the course of several weeks. Interviews were not very well structured and the interviewers didn't ask very good questions. Overall there was a lack of experience interviewing by those who interviewed me, and one person I asked targeted questions of about the company, culture and the current project withheld important information that would have helped me see that this company was not a good fit.

    Interview Questions

    • Closed ended questions about past work and capabilities I had.   1 Answer

    Senior Role Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Sierra-Cedar.

    Interview

    They dragged me along for months and continued to change the interview process on me. For example, they said I would speak with so-and-so and when I didn't hear from so-and-so, they would change direction and set-up an interview with someone else. The recruiting process required a lot of follow-up on my behalf in order to keep it moving and know what next steps involved.

    It was a completely disorganized recruiting process. Two people told me I would be receiving a call to discuss my offer details as the final step. However, after a month of not hearing about my offer I declined to continue with the process. I was then told they gave the offer to someone else. That's not the way to treat people, so I am glad at the end of the day not to be working for them.
