    Senior Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The HR was very helpful in setting up of the interview in terms of a suitable date and ensured that I had understood the job description in detail.

    1st round was with the HR, very basic and went on well.

    2nd round was the Head of Research (you can google and find his name on LinkedIn, I can’t mention his name owing to Glassdoor policies). He asked me how did I learn about this company. My answer was that it’s a pretty famous company and have heard about the company from family and friends. His reply was astonishing, “stop this nonsense, if you want to continue this rubbish then let’s stop the interview right now as you’re wasting my time and gave me a grin”. This is not the attitude an interview should show in front of a candidate. I mean how did he learn about the company? Is it not through family and friends, or did the owner himself walked up to him?! Throughout the interview inspite of me being calm and patient, the interviewer kept showcasing superiority complex and gibberish behaviour. All in all a very bad experience, did not expect a senior professional to behave in this manner.
