    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at GalaxE.Solutions (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard up until the end of my in-person interview. I received a call from a recruiter about the position. They did not know much about the role but did provide the basics. The call ended about 10 minutes later with the expectation I would receive a follow-up call to schedule an in-person interview with the hiring manager who was head of HR at the Detroit office. The interview was scheduled over a week later.

    Fast forward to the in-person interview: The instructions to get to the office and the friendliness of the reception staff were great. The meeting with the HR hiring manager was pretty standard as well. She asked about my qualifications and then turned the table over to me for questions. We had a good conversation about the needs of the company and while in mid-conversation and only two questions in, the interviewer ended our meeting by closing her book with my resume, said "it sounds like you do what I do in my job" and then reached her hand across the table to thank me for coming in. The experience left me speechless as I was rushed out the door towards the lobby.

    Needless to say, I received a rejection letter via email less than 48 hours after the interview. My advice to the HR GalaxE Solutions team would include a couple things. First, make sure to better align the job description with the true needs of the company so that overqualified individuals do not pass through to the in-person interview. Second, it has never been best practice in my experience to abruptly end an interview in the manner in which I experienced. Everyone, even HR professionals, can benefit from professional coaching as well as reviewing best practices to ensure they attract the best candidate for their company.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at GalaxE.Solutions (Somerset, NJ) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I had several telephone interviews with internal HR recruiter, who was quite nice and very professional. After getting through that round, I was scheduled for a follow-up interview with hiring manager. I took a half day of vacation from my current job to await the phone call. He never called. Later that day, I spoke again with a now-embarrassed HR rep who rescheduled another telephone interview. Again, the hiring manager never called, never emailed, never apologized or rescheduled. Very unprofessional. I withdrew my application. If these people can't keep appointments, I can't imagine how they bring projects in on time.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GalaxE.Solutions (New Delhi (India)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    - I was contacted by a recruiter for one of their open positions.
    - As they work in the "body shopping" world and don't have real big projects, they want people to join in 1-2 weeks notice.
    -I was told by the recruiter, that even though I may be a team lead, I will be an individual contributor and everyone in their organization is one, irrespective of their designation. Though honest, but This didn't make very good impression. If everyone is an individual contributor, then how does the project works. Well, As the reviews mentioned, there are no stable projects. They mainly work on the POC.
    - Anyways, I went for the face to face interview. The interview went for an hour or so. I thought it went well, as the person wanted me to meet his boss. As his boss was busy, I was told that I would be contacted again.
    - On the next working day, the recruiter called and wanted to know, how the interview went. It was surprising as the recruiters are supposed to inform candidates about the result and next steps and not ask them about the interviews. I requested the recruiter to connect with the interviewer and let me know the feedback. Looked like, the recruiter didn't like it and responded "We will contact you later (in a sarcastic tone)".
    - Few days later, I checked with recruiter, but no response.
    - Few days later, after I contacted the recruiter, they again sent me the email about the same position, but with extra technological work. Looked like they were not sure about the requirements and just called me, to keep me as a backup, for their earlier requirements.
    - Total waste of time.
