    Chief Director: Hydrogen and Energy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pretoria, Gauteng (South Africa)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pretoria, Gauteng (South Africa)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at CSIR in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The position was advertised in the Sunday Times to which the response was sent via email. It took almost three months from application until interview. The unofficial response is a rejection and may be an official response will be sent. The interview was of 3 people with 2 already with the department. The panel was okay and so was the whole process, unless one was hoodwinked by poker faces.
