Manager Interview

Manager
Boca Raton, FL

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tyco in June 2011.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview with the recruiter who screened for salary and required skills. This was followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager. Subsequently, the recruiter followed up to schedule an in-person interview. Unfortunately, prior to the in-person interview happening there was a hiring freeze at the company.

Manager Interview

Manager
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tyco.

Interview Details – Initially I was hired as a Assistant manager, and was also promised for growth with in 6 month to 1 year to the position of Manager. There would generally be a good amount allotted for new hires, how ever HR/ Dept Managers negotiate too much and gain importance showing cost saving on the hiring, very poor hiring strategy. This has a long standing effect as when you compare your counter part in other countries/ town/ other companies with in India, many a times you would realize that you have not been on par with your counter part.

Job Security - This company has a history of firing people with out proper notice period, due to failure in their recruitment process.

Interview Question – How does HR ensure they evaluate an individual on his performance with out any prejudice.

What are the steps / initiatives taken by management to eliminate favouritism in India

How do they identify and grow talents with in the company
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Never negotiate the salary, HR Managers are not here to identify and state your worth.

Manager

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Tyco in December 2009.

Interview Details – Interviewed with 5 different managers over a period of 6 hours. Many were not very skilled in the process, but no serious problems. Many were very helpful in explaining the operations. Final interview was with HR mgr. who made you feel very comfortable and asked good questions.
I made it to the final 2, but how the actual decision was made was unknown.
