QA Analyst Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at OpenText in April 2009.
I replied to a job site posting, had an initial phone interview and was told that an interview would be scheduled in Waterloo. I didn't hear anything, so after 3 weeks I followed up and an inteview was scheduled within a few days. I think the recruiter 'lost' me in the system.
I had two typical in-person inteviews which went really well and I liked the team and the work responsibilities - it would have been a perfect match for me.
- There were no unexpected questions - just the standard interview questions - why did you leave your last job, what are your strengths/weaknesses, etc. Answer Question
After accepting the offer, I found out that a police, reference and credit check would be done by an American company. I would have been ok with this if a Canadian company was doing the checks but because of the US Patriot Act, I was extremely uncomfortable for the potential (albeit very remote) of this information being used by the US government.
Just the thought of my personal information potentially being sent to a third-party without my knowledge or consent made me feel as if my right to privacy was being violated.
I then revoked my acceptance of the offer.
In summary, the interview was positive; the conditions of employment were unacceptable.
