Executive, Corporate Communications Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Singapore Technologies Engineering in August 2008.
Interview Details – First point of contact was a recruitment agency who refuse to reveal anything about the company except for it being a local MNC in Jurong. Interview was scheduled in the Boon Lay office with a HR exec as well as the Head of Department in attendance. No recording devices including camera phones were allowed on premise but this was not communicated prior to the interview. Strangely the HR executive was asking questions unrelated to HR. The interview was rather informal and does not reflect the culture of the working environment. Subsequent arrangements were done quite haphazardly by the HR executive who was often on leave and not contactable. I was informed the next day that I got the job but was told to decide within the same day whether I am accepting the terms and offer.
Interview Question – Most of the questions were relatively easy. Something unexpected was whether I will be able to accept that the company is producing weapons. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The increment was minimal. The HR department gave the impression that the candidate should be "grateful" to be chosen to work in the company. Potential candidates should negotiate harder than normal.
