    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Eurofins Scientific (Bengaluru (India)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The written , 2 technical and 1 managerial round was good and very professional. I did not do well in the managerial round.This took a whole Saturday.The HRs and interviewers were very professional and arranged things well. F2F rounds were bit challenging.

    But, after 2 days got a call from another HR saying, another team member wants to discuss with you and i have to come to the office the next day and the interview was scheduled and in the mail i received from HR , it was mentioned as job position:Technical architect , after i called the HR for confirmation on the position , he said i just sent the call letter and forgot to delete content of mail.
    I went for interview the next day, two guys came to take the interview, both of them behaved like they want to take some revenge on me and were behaving like a critics for every answer i give.
    they were giggling, yawning(they just had come from lunch, did not even wipe their hands).
    Very very unprofessional attitude by the last interviewers.

    Associate Director Corporate Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakleigh (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Eurofins Scientific (Oakleigh (Australia)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Through a recruiter I was sold the opportunity to attend an interview with a Director. Interview was in Oakleigh, a substantial distance from Melbourne CBD. I had just returned from overseas and was told in no uncertain terms, relayed from Eurofins, that I could not delay the process by a day in order to properly effect the interview and overcome some jetlag, despite suggesting this was a preferred option. Turned up and was neither impressed by the locale or offices. OK, so maybe I am a snob so I tried to clear that from my disposition. I was met by the Director. Didn't get a "hi, did you find the offices ok?", or "thanks for coming", just "please go in here for your test". Test was psychometric (logic) and calcs. (0.5 hours). Interview followed, no structure. Interviewer couldn't care less about my experience or skill-set, and was more interested in how old I am/was. Thoroughly unpleasant chap, with little or no interest in even attempting to sell me the role. I interpreted the whole process and interviewer as both contemptuous and rude. Complete waste of my time and speaking of time, I couldn't even get a "thanks for your time" at the end of the interview even though I certainly gave one. Just Wow! On a positive note, it makes for the best interview story ever.
