    Manager (E-Group) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kuwait City (Kuwait)
    Anonymous Employee in Kuwait City (Kuwait)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at MH Alshaya in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    A complete nightmare. I had 4 telephone interviews and was verbally offered the job. They then kept me waiting for 5 weeks - assuring me the job was approved, but the organization structure changes needed to be approved. Then I was invited to a 1 day visit where I was told I would have to attend some interview (I said I had been offered the job and they said these people had to apporve me also). On the day I had to attend 8 one hour interviews and 2 thirty minute interviews, and a 30 minute lunch break. It then turned out the job was not the one I was verbally offered, and the salary was 30% less than previously discussed and offered. I withdrew from the process on my return home from the interviews. They basically lied to me, made many mistakes in the recruitment process, and even with the apologies given I felt they were unprofessional. I had turned down other roles based on the offer they had given me. This was a major disappointment.

    The HR Manager made a verbal offer, then later realized that the job was not yet approved and denied the offer. There were many times during the process that I wished a number of Alshaya people would just be honest with me!!!
