    Assistant Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was not to the point and has other agenda. Asked a lot of question but also was checking out the candidate and not focus on the capability and experience and after got the job, what was expected of the candidate was not as per when in job. Ended up blame for not performing as per job requirement in a very short time. Everywhere has a learning curve and this was just purely biasness. Harsh environment either you survive and work all the life there or finish the contract and leave or even earlier.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview for research position really completely depends on the PI (principal investigator) that you're applying for. He/she has the complete freedom and choice for the interview style. In my case, it's just a very casual talk on the laboratory together with a laboratory tour to gauge the suitability for both sides.
