    Senior Systems Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kissimmee, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IMEC (Belgium) (Kissimmee, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed for Sr. System Architect position. Had initial two technical phone interviews followed by on site interview with VP/General Manager. Feedback was good from all three. Was told to expect a call from HR with full compensation package disclosure following which a trip to Leuven for a couple of days worth of on-site interviews would be set up. After that, all went south in a bizarre manner. Call with HR person from the Netherlands lasted over 1 hour during which no package details were given. No clue as to what was to proceed. Two more technical phone interviews were scheduled and undertaken. HR person from Netherlands wished to connect again over a call. Thought that this time they would discuss the next steps in a comprehensive and lucid manner. However, she forgot that she had spoken to me for over an hour only two weeks prior and remembered only when I brought it up during the call as she re-introduced herself. She then apologized profusely and claims that someone will reach out to me soon to inform me of next steps. Within a week received a random unscheduled call from this same HR person now informing me that I am not being considered for the role. The feedback was that I do not possess the leadership skills they desire for the role but that I am a solid candidate who they wish to consider once their Florida R&D center is set up within a year. This was totally at odds with the feedback I received from two of their own hiring managers including their VP. I can understand if they found a candidate who possessed more experience (more years) than me, but to tell me I lacked the leadership experience with my 18-year R&D background across multiple technical domains did not make any sense. My advice is to get your act together, be more organized and quit stringing someone along until the last minute, especially after making them undertake 6 hour-long phone calls and one on-site interview.

    I applied on imec website for this position. Couple of days later I got the email from the hr team for a skype call to discuss the position and my profile. Had a skype call for around 40 mins with hr person and he asked about my experience and overall motivation to move to Netherlands (i was applying from different country) . It was very informal call and hr told me they would send my profile to hiring manager and get back to me within 1 week. However 1 day later i received automated mail from imec that I am not being considered for further process. It seemed to me that CV was never shared with hiring manager. Also no proper feedback was given

    I applied online. I interviewed at IMEC (Belgium) in January 2016.

    Interview

    They just keep you waiting with positive feeling and in the loop for a long time and after the long wait they will hire somebody internally or a candidate with recommendations. During the interview, they will make you get a good feeling about the outcome of the interview ( once they even told I am the best in the top 3) and then after months of waiting they will say that they have closed/or changed the job profile for that position and the end the case!!
