    Project Coordinator-Evidence Based Diabetes Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PHFI (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)).

    Interview

    Had applied through devnetjobs and an interview was scheduled within weeks. The entire process was highly unprofessional. The admin guy who contacted me wasn't sure about the position for which I had been shortlisted( I reminded him that I have applied for two different positions). And then to my horror , he was surprised at my arrival , did not have my CV with him . It all looked that these people had to interview me unwillingly , just because I had landed at their doorstep against their wishes. The interview was a 5 minute affair with general introductions- consisted of two people-Project head and a HR person. I wasnt asked any technical stuff either . As expected , the company did not bother to contact me later!! :D
