    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Juma Al Majid Group in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had noticed an ad in the local newspaper and applied via e-mail. Within 1 week, I received a call from their office informing to meet with their Senior Manager for an interview. The interview was very relaxed and I left the place thinking I was very smart and confident during the interview. Unfortunately, it was much later that I realized the person who interviewed me had joined the company 25-30 years back as a helper and climbed the ranks of the organization on account of being a mixed Arab nationality and extremely proficient in "buttering" his seniors. I was asked to meet with the President of the Group for a final interview after about 10 days and then received an Offer Letter after 1 week thereafter.

    Interview Questions
    • The President asked me how I would fit into the culture of the company since I had not worked in an Arab dominated organization earlier. Though I handled that question well, it gave me a deep feeling that the establishment is pro-Arab and that I must be careful in my professional dealings.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Since the Offer given to me was nearly 50% lower than market rate, I tried my best to negotiate with the HR. I was told that they will review the salary after 6 months of probation period. I worked in the company for 5 years and my salary had increased by Dhs.1700/- in total......I curse myself for sticking on for so long with such a pathetic company.
