It wasn't a job, it was a discussion about roles Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fujitsu Services in February 2009.
Interview Details – Senior Mgmt recommended me. The local staff contacted me for a long distance telephone call with two managers who were sitting together. Reorganisational changes hadn't been announced, so they couldn't disclose the situation details very well. They were to set up a sister organisational unit to the one I was in within the UK and they had no direct experience of it. So they couldn't articulate their needs very well. Nor did I feel they understood how difficult it would be to do what their position required, so it became almost embarassing. Because it was conducted over the phone, I had none of the non-verbal clues to address that sooner. Because I had been through several itterations of the organisational unit that they were to set up, I was able to comment on the benefits and pitfalls. Had I known that that is what they were being asked to set up, I doubt that I would have participated in the call, as I had grown to hate the unit because its hands were tied in so many ways and mangement were constantly playing musical chairs whilst ostensibly trying to make the service easier / better / more robust etc... but the structure made that nearly impossible. I really tried to help them and offered to help them in whatever way they needed, but suspect that they wanted someone who didn't quite know the ropes, quite so well.
Interview Question – What difference can you make View Answer
Customer Solutions Architect Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Fujitsu Services.
Interview Details – Standard Interview Process - starts off with a "Tell me about yourself" and leads onto a few technical questions to back up your application. Fairly standard and having read your application form - you got to the interview stage therefore you must have the appropriate qualifications, the interview seems more about whether you are a good fit for the team/organisation. The role will be technical but also customer facing so you must satisfy both counts.
Interview Question – None was that difficult that a CSA should of known already Answer Question

Senior Service Delivery Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fujitsu Services in August 2009.
Interview Details – Joined the company through TUPE. Interview was a 10 minute chat with a Program Lead and HR consultant to map my employment details into their system. The Q&A consisted of me explaining the role I performed and asking for more detail on how this role would fit into the new organisation. As the answer was "we have no idea but give us a few months to figure it out" I realised there was little value in asking further questions regarding the role and concentrated on questions regarding the HR system, appraisals and pay role.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation as the role was transferred with like for like terms and the options were accept or resign.
Very Easy Interview
Sharepoint Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Fujitsu Services in January 2011.
Interview Details – For a large organization I was really disappointment at how disorganized they were, the timings were changed three times in 1 day, the address was not correct the interviewer showed up 5 minutes late and in between interviewers I was easily waiting for 10 - 15 min.
I was technically interviewed by a B.A (NOT an Engineer or Developer) who was really impressed with me and even though I had all the qualifications/certifications/degrees and other offers for senior roles, they said they didn't think I was as a senior.
The office looked really nice and the receptionist was very kind, but in all honesty the recruiter couldn't be bothered to go in details as I wasn't a desperate candidate looking for employment.
Interview Question – Why would you write code for Share Point rather than just customize it? View Answer
Reason for Declining – Without a technical interview with any technical person they just dreamed up my technical competency, the HR person was very cold and wasn't willing to answer any of my questions. The only thing was the office and the receptionist.
Legal Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Fujitsu Services in December 2008.
Interview Details – woefully inadequate for the role I applied for. There was no assessment of my ability to do the job.
Interview Question – Why did you change jobs so many times Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Good as I got the salary I wanted but I did not realise they would not give me a pay rise again, otherwise I would have asked for more money!
Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fujitsu Services in March 2009.
Interview Details – Hiring process was not up to scratch. HR Consultant was very vague, and the Management seemed very rude. Better to think twice about working with this organization since not too many processes are set as yet. There may be a lot of favoritism also. And the work life balance will certainly go for a toss, since the HR section functions as a processing team, rather than a value adding team. Dont expect any support from HR in case of issues.
