    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sun Products Corporation in June 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process was well coordinated right from Phone Screening to face-face sessions.
    The office building was fancy and looked modern. However, the workplace appeared gloomy.

    The position was full hands on. No skill based questions. It appears they have been interviewing since April and still on the lookout for the ideal candidate. Got a rejection email this week with industry standard template without the exact reason. Not terribly surprised - Just hit 40 this year and a minority. Although,the interviewers were all white.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were behavioral and the hiring managers pointed to being "cultural fit" without disclosing the attributes. The entire panel comprised of all white interviewers. The interview was unstructured and the position was hands on. They did not seem to be interested in specific skills although the job required good amount of stats, quantitative, analytical and some data modeling skills. It was a hands on position.

      The team structure was Matrix or Flat, I was told. (interpretation: no one would would own a responsibility) or the supervisors will deflect responsibilities to the subordinates,one or the other under the guise of team work.

      I did not bother sending "Thank You Note", was not desperate to get the position, already interviewing somewhere and have a job. Glassdoor had an overwhelming negative reviews,52/60 from past and present employees were very negative.So I was a bit cautious from start. The other was high volume of employee turnover. Lost momentum the night before the interview after reading glassdoor reviews. Showing up there turned out to be a formality. The HR was caught off guard when I raised the glassdoor concerns on employee reviews.

      The interviewers seemed professional.
      Came to a conclusion - "Cultural Fit" ~ border line discriminatory or don't fit in the old boys club. I was evaluated at artificial standards. Resume was 100% fit to the job description, with near perfect GPA scores on both engineering and business degrees; experience requirement was mid-career. Attended an interview after almost 9 years. It ended up as good practice.

      Received a standard template rejection email this week. There were no specific reason for rejection. Hiring managers injected too many of their personal biases into the decision making process and use "cultural fit" as an excuse to eliminate qualified candidates they think might challenge them or whom they just don't like. Being 40 and a minority seems to be a probable reason for rejection. They valued "cultural fit" over competence.
