Sollicitatiegesprek

1. HR screening 2. Coding test 3. Technical interview 4. (I didn't make it pass the first interview, but I heard it would've been followed by one cross team interview and then an onsite) HR Screening: I feel that there is a lack of communication between the hiring manger/team and the HR. The HR couldn't provide basic info like if the hiring manager is based in London, Montreal or Singapore. They either knowingly or unknowingly lied about the regional headcounts, which I found out during the next interview. Technical interviews: I enjoyed speaking to the interviewers, who are also software engineers within the same group. However the same problem occurred when they did not even know which team/region I am interviewing for. I then had a brief catchup with the HR again and received some pretty positive feedback from the first interview, and was even told that they are sure I 'will make it to the next round'. Lo and behold, the next day I received a generic rejection email with no explanations whatsoever :( Overall, this left a sour taste in the mouth, and don't think I will apply here again.

Sollicitatiegesprek

I applied online and I found the process very unprofessional which is a shame and not what I expected from such a company. I applied for the position at the very beginning of October 22. Sometime after my application, on 13th Oct 22 I was contacted by a Global Recruiter based in Singapore about my application. I had a gap on my cv and she contacted me to ask me what I had been doing during that time and I said that I had a career break. After that, I never heard back from her or anyone else which clearly demonstrates that if you have a gap in your CV, you will not even be considered, at least that is my experience with this Company. She (the recruiter) clearly showed interest in my CV and must have thought my experience was relevant the role specification otherwise she would not have bothered to contact me after the application. On 09th Dec 22 I received a "no-reply" automated email saying that they are not able to match my experience to the role. I found the Global recruiter extremely unprofessional and a lack of transparency in the selection process. First, the global recruiter should have contacted me about the outcome of the application in the same way she contacted me about the gap on my CV and in a timely fashion manner instead of "hiding" herself behind an automated "no-reply" email and send it more than 2 months later after my application. This behaviour is what cowards do but not professional people. I am glad that the process did not go any further because this behaviour is only an appetizer of what is waiting for you once you are in and if you have a gap in your CV do not waste your time with them.

In the second round, they asked a coding question on a text file processing
