Very Difficult Interview

IT Consultant Interview

IT Consultant
Melbourne (Australia)

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SMS Management & Technology in March 2012.

Interview Details – Riduculous Interview process
very time consuming
No proper correspondance
One stupid test

sms has 4 stage interview process - amongst which they have a "special" test , this test is very unique , The percentage needed is very high ( sms wont say what this is nor they declare on how much you have scored ) but its mandatory that you pass this test

suggestion : If you get a call from these guys , ask them that you will do the test first - save yourself time and effort

Do not recommend them at all

I applied through other source and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at SMS Management & Technology in February 2010.

Interview Details – I applied directly and called the HR contact person. She had a short chat on the phone, the asked me to come see her in person for about an hour next day. After the meeting, she informed me that I was up for 2nd level interview with a delivery manager, took it within 3 days. Same day, HR informed me that I was up for 3rd and 4th level interview and scheduled it in 4 days time, both on the same day. Made me an offer within 2 hours of leaving the office. Told me a start date.
Very professional and impressive process.
With HR - 1st interview was for cultural fit.
With Delivery manager - 2nd interview was about my work experience.
With Account Manager - 3rd interview was about my work experience.
With Regional Director - 4th interview was very general, nothing about the CV - what I'm looking for in my new job, goals. Any question about SMS? What to expect?
