    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Altova full-time (More than 10 years)


    Salary expected. The office location is in the Vienna center and the is a kindergarten next to the office.


    Not serious. They hire me and when I arrived to Wien, I have paid flights, german course, apartment, new bank account, internet at the apartment... they said me that finallly due to internal matters finally they cancelled the contract!!!. And of course they didn't pay me 200€, for the expenses in the first interview. (You can read it in your web that they pay 200€ for the first interview, travel expenses or whatever).

    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Altova in May 2012.


    Contacted by email by a recruiter, they made a face to face interview without any previous phone contact. The interview is really simple with only a simple technical question and many about why I was finding for another opportunity. A question about my salary expectations and no reply to my request about the foreseen salary range.
