    Freelance Journalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jaipur, Rajasthan (India)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hindustan Times (Jaipur, Rajasthan (India)).

    Interview

    I was called to the Jaipur office, where I had to wait more than half an hour after the designated time. This was just the tip of the iceberg. Cue unprofessionalism of the highest degree.i
    First, if you are planning to offer 1/5th of the standard rate in the industry, per article, you are supposed to let the candidate know, especially if s/he is coming from out of town specifically for the interview.

    In between the interview, employees of the newspaper kept butting in, and the interviewer very leisurely started talking to them. It felt like we were hanging out at some eating joint, rather than having an official inteview.

    Didn't expect it to be like that.
