    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Concord, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EXFO (Concord, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    They behave unprofessionally in the interview. They asked me to come for on-site interview by email. Hiring manager behavior was very condescending, impolite and unprofessional. He didn't even read my resume before and was trying to read in front of me to ask me some questions from my resume. He was sleepy and yawning many time as i was answering the questions. After 20 minutes of briefly trying to skimming through my resume, he suddenly told me that he was not interested in my resume and i was not fit and not continue further. They could have asked me their questions and interview me on the phone AFTER at least reading once my resume, instead of bringing me all the way to their office. They have no respect for applicants' time and money by such unprofessional behavior. It is very unlikely that i apply for any positions in this company with such disrespectful and unprofessional behavior and environment. From HR and HR manager behavior, it can be guessed how the working environment is in this company.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Quebec, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EXFO (Quebec, QC (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Initially it was good. The recruiter called me and said that she was in interested in my CV and would like to send me an online test. The test went well and another recruiter called me and ask me about my professional experiences. Finally she said that the first recruiter would call me when she returns from her week off. After that they never call me back to give me good or bad news. Very disappointing experience.

    Technical Position Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EXFO (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    The whole hiring process sucks... Took 1 telephone interview and 2 round face to face interview 3 months ago... They told me to wait for the next step and havn't got any feedback yet... I think either they gave the chance to other candidate nor the position has been cancelled.
    No matter how, please at least tell the candidate results instead of letting them waiting forever.

    Technical Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at EXFO in September 2016.

    Interview

    There was technical test and then 2 round of technical interview. I cleared test and they schedule f2f interview and it was for 2 hours 5 minutes. After 1 hour technical test and 2 hours of technical discussion they shared feedback that they want the person who are having good technical understanding. I mean to say the technical panel realize after taking 2 hours of technical discussion. How much time ideally require to check the person technical capabilities, max 30 mins. It was worst experience I ever had. I would suggest to improve ur process and don't waste ur and the candidate time.
