    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Suntech Power (San Francisco, CA) in March 2011.


    I was contacted by a recruiter and had a phone screen, and then had two in-person interviews (which were rescheduled once). That went well, and I was invited back for a second round of five interviews--also rescheduled. Hey, I'm flexible, and they gave me a couple of days' notice, so that wasn't a huge deal. But they were simultaneously hiring a new director to expand the group, to whom this position would report. That seemed to me like the wrong way to go about it--wouldn't you want the hiring manager on board and involved in the process of hiring the new group? So the second round was a little awkward, but went well enough. They said they had narrowed it down to two candidates, and the final round would be with the new director after he/she came on board. No surprise, the new director came on board and wanted to bring in his/her own candidates. I completely understand that, but think their time and mine would have been better spent if they had started the process that way. Oh, and canceling the final interview the morning of (after it had also been rescheduled)? Can't say I was impressed by their HR practices. At least I developed a good relationship with the recruiter, so it wasn't a total waste of my time.
