    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    Met up with hiring dept twice and did 1 verbal assessment and 1 written assessment on 2nd interview to test candidate's knowledge. Hiring dept sent another written assessment via email. Felt that the assessments could have been sent before interviews and key decision maker should be in the first round of interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    Interviewers gave a different picture of the job description in the 1st and 2nd interview, and sent 2 rounds of written assessments which can be time-consuming for the job seeker.

    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.
