    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Zain in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was recommended by a manger there and was working with a sub contractor so they basically know me. The department or the section was fairly new. I was interviewed by my new manager and he knew me before but not that much. After the interview which was not that hard and mainly technical interview then I was invited for another interview with my manager and HR. Then they sent me the offer which was more than I expected and tried with them to increase it but they refused so I accepted it.

    Interview Questions
    • It was very easy specially because it was in my area of exp reties. I think if it was new area I might faces some difficulties. The good thing about Zain for me is the quick of the process. It was so fast but I think this is not for ever one as I was lucky because my manager was in bad shape and wanted me so badly to help him as the department was fairly new. Over all the interview was okay and not that difficult. I recommend zain to my friends as well because it is good company and has bright future.   Answer Question
