    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nanyang Technological University in June 2011.

    Interview

    Hired after exchange emails with the supervisor. I don't recall being interviewed. This was a temporary position, and there wasn't much competition as the job scope was very specific and narrow, and did not comprise many responsibilities. Personal connections were part of how I got the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nanyang Technological University in July 2017.

    Interview

    Was called down for the interview about 2 - 3 days after the application. Interview questions were not too tough and the interviewers were quite detailed on their explanation. However, the post-interview stage was appalling as the HR did not respond or update anything despite sending them an email and a phone call follow up. As HR professionals, effort should made to ensure that applicants are not kept in the dark.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nanyang Technological University.

    Interview

    Ask to write an email on paper based on the 2 problems they gave, just to see how you will respond on email. Just read up on their website, all information are there, even quotation prices for merchandise they bought

    Interview for 1 hour, interviewers were friendly but be specific on your salary, else they will mark you as dishonest for hiding information from them and you will just be wasting your time and effort with them.

    Team culture seems good but a dictatorial leadership, no negotiation, no freedom, just do as you are told. If you are looking for just a job, this is perfect. If you are looking for a career growth with the power to control your fate, go else where.

    Office infrastructure is old fashioned, dust on chair and lighting is slightly dark.

    Base salary is low if your grades are not good. High leave payout of 21 days.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore (Singapore)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process was easy, through email. However the interview was rather tough with a panel of 5 interviewers. It was a thorough interview with questions more on relevant work experiences instead of personal questions.
