    Human Resources Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Islandia, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CA Technologies (Islandia, NY).

    Interview

    Very professional spoke with recruiter/manager via phone first to talk about the position and get a feel for it and if it was a fit for both of us, spoke with the main Manager then several other managers in person for an interview and panel. They were great communicators and reached out in a timely manner to whether I got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked several questions about my experience and how I handle certain things and what my goals were etc... They were friendly but at the same time to the point and clear about the position and what they were looking for in a candidate.   Answer Question

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CA Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    In the past year, I was approached not once, but thrice for a job opportunity in User Experience area.

    History repeated itself in following terms:
    - Recruitment team never called after scheduling a 30-minute slot (wasting time multiple instances)
    - Interviewing stretched for months, with plenty of rescheduling hiccups.
    - After everyone liked the things I had done and after verbally confirming the offer, they stopped, saying they ran out of budget. Every single time! This just demonstrates the incompetence of the management and their visibility, not to say unprofessionalism.
    - All three times, I was not updated by the hiring manager. They chose to tell it to a close friend of mine, who is employed there, and is helpless about the bad experience.

    There are many anecdotes I would like to add, but it's too much of details; I can't as I'm done investing time on CA Technologies, even for this review purpose.

    I avoid writing these things, but I gathered enough motivation to do it, just with the hope that some prospect employees are well-prepared. I would have liked to add this as Company review, but Glassdoor doesn't allow me, as I am neither a current employee nor a former one.

    I started off as an intern, so my interview process was more an internal discussion with my manager to determine whether I was interested.
