Finally got a date for my test. i have given the test, which was fairly simple and now am awaiting a call for the next round. I have been informed that only shortlisted Candidates after the engineering test will be contacted within a week. So keeping my Fingers crossed. Will keep you'l updated on what happens next, in the mean time please pray for me to be selected so i can give you all more information. Thank you.

    Interview Questions

    • During the HR interview, most questions were asked to make the candidate spew venom and negativity on former employers, e.g. What were the worst moments, what did you dislike about that experience, what are your weaknesses...

      A personality test was carried out but the results were not compared to the profile expected for this position.

      The person invited me to ask questions but refused to answer most of them.
