    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Sabre (Southlake, TX (US)).

    Interview

    Exhausting and long. They are very thorough and it took over 4 months from the time I got the first interview until I got the offer and then they wanted me to start as soon as possible. I had around 10 interviews (different people) and travelled to headquarters twice. Ultimately it was worth the wait but it was not a quick process. Now from the inside there are several people that have to approve that make the process VERY slow and difficult.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of specific questions about previous experience as it relates to the job. Expected.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Interviewed by one person. Questions were just standard C++ questions, nothing easy, nothing super hard. One tricky question but otherwise very standard. Very easy going interviewer as well.
    As long as you knew object oriented programming, inheritance, polymorphism, operator overloading, it was good.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sabre in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was told it is a scheduled interview for me at 11:00 AM at Sabre premises Bangalore, I reached there at 10:50 AM and found out they called lots of people for 11:00 interview and everyone was waiting thereafter 45 minutes HR came to me for an online test(which was not told as a part of interview process) I attended the test which was very basic java programming questions which a person with 2 years of experience could do easily.
    Then came next round of "technical discussion" after waiting for another 30 minutes.
    The discussion lasted around 30 minutes during which interviewer had not asked any single technological question, all about what all technologies I have used in the project I have worked so far.
    Nothing on how I used it or any challenges I faced.
    Asked about the project like what it is all about. Again no technical questions.
    I was getting a feeling that the person interviewing me is not having technical background or does not know what to ask.
    After this discussion HR told me that I did not clear through the technical round, which was surprising to me as all the time interviewer did not ask one single technical or even project architecture question then how did I failed?
    Appeared to me they have decided people they want to hire and were just doing time pass by calling people for interview

    Interview Questions

    • When you call someone for technical discussion ask questions related to that and then judge, don't waste time   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Sabre (Southlake, TX (US)).

    Interview

    HR phone screening, followed by the hiring Director interview, met with several other team members, progressed to the Vice President and finally the CMO. All of the interviews were one on one. Based on the behaviors (checking emails, text messages, etc.) during two of the sessions it was very distracting and unprofessional. Sabre HR needs to put their mid and senior management through a basic interview training class to ensure that standards are maintained to provide a fair and equitable platform for the candidates as well as the hiring executives.

    Interview Questions

    • Situational, what if questions very hypothetical and also without any deep knowledge of the industry so where not very insightful.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiate salary and time off up front. There is some latitude within the defined ranges for the company and equivalent positions.
