Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Gemalto.

Interview

The interview took place on weekend, which is fine. The interview are standard 1 HR + 1 Technical meeting, HR meeting are very easy, more like telling your skillset and what did you do. Technical question are fairly easy, not required to write a production code (pseudo-code is allowed). They just want to understand how do you solve an issue logically.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Gemalto (Singapore (Singapore)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    interview was initially set up by a recruitment agency. I believe they have 2 rounds of interview. It was for the software engineering position under embedded systems and I dont have much experience in embedded but just wanted to go and see how it is.

    First round: 30mins technical test, mostly objective types on topics such as C programming and digital systems. The test was quite alright if u know ur theory. This was followed by face to face interview with the hiring manager. Asked a lot of detailed questions on uni projects and how i did them and what their focus was etc...

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Gemalto.

    Interview

    You will have a technical interview with prospective manager (and possibly another manager or another team-member), followed by a HR interview with an HR manager (if you pass the techical interview).

    The technical interview will greatly depend on who interviews you, each manager has their own preference and question. So make sure you ask a lot of info about the interviewing manager and his/her team to the recruiter before your interview!
