    Biostatistician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    This is the worst interview experience I've ever had. The HR lady didn't respect me at all. I am still working during my OPT time and I put Yes for the question "Do you need a Sponsorship now or in the future?" I can understand if you don't want to hire international people, but she consisted I am a liar and she said I didn't mention I need the sponsorship. I checked the document I sent to her, there is a big "Yes" for the sponsorship. If the HR doesn't know how to respect their candidate who has the passion to contribute, how could the company select the right fit? The HR at Kaiser Permanente at LA office is so terrible! Besides, she called me at 5:30 PM PST, so unprofessional!
