    Interview

    1st and one round - With hiring managers and HR

    Didn't have a good impression even before I attended interview. HR called and insisted I have to cancel all appointments to meet the interviewers three days after because one of them is a doctor and he insisted it.

    The interview last for over two hours. (Note: This is a Research Coordinator position which I applied.) Everyone at the panel looked at the doctor adoringly when he spoke. Even if anyone of them wanted to talk about the job, they looked at him and not me. This situation resembled the reviews given about existing staff in the hospital over here. The one hiring manager and HR were very rude this way but they seemed to suggest to you they will treat people who are not doctors, as furniture.

    The doctor interviewed using coercive techniques when in doubt and refused to introduce himself too. The hours spent and the way he asked questions suggested to me he wanted a staff whom he could abuse any ways he wanted , that he might not be a good boss , and preferably you should be as poor as a church mouse so that you could take up his job and let him and his staff do whatever they want to you.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Singapore General Hospital in April 2009.

    Interview

    We were asked to write an essay and submit it. After which, if you got through, you would be invited for the first round of interviews. One of the directors was at the first round and we were randomly picked to go into groups, persuade each other why his/her own essay is the best to present it to senior management and the board. It was tough especially when you have to present it from memory. The director was very open and friendly which gave me a lasting impression and made me want to work with people like her. Second round of interview was with a few directors and managers. It was tough. Questions ranged from politics to healthcare issues etc.
