    Average Interview

    Interview

    The interview process for Metro Systems was quite disappointing. I was contacted by phone by Metro System for a software architect opening. In the phone call we established a meeting for an interview, a week later. HR person supposed to send me a mail for confirmation and all necessary details for the meeting. This email was never sent. With 2 days before I called HR person and she admitted that she forgot about this. Eventually she sent that confirmation email for the interview, but for a another day as we established, a day before. Yet i attended the meeting since it was ok with my schedule. At the meeting, she admitted, once more, that she messed up the date. Anyway, i had the interview. There were 3 guys and the HR lady. We had techincal discussion for more then 1 hour, maybe 1 hour and a half. The interview wen ok, discussion were very opened and topics interesting. But my general impression was that they had no interest in finding a candidate, and the interview took place only because they had to participate. I don't know, maybe they already found a suitable candidate for them. We discussed that I will be contacted by them for an answer, but once more, as I got used with that, I did not receive that answer neither today, many months later. In conclusion, the interview experience with Metro Systems was very disappointing, they were totally unprofessional.
