    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at SITA.

    Interview

    Took 2 weeks to get the initial meeting scheduled after the hiring manager asking TA to schedule the meeting. Then the TA lead missed the appointment. Then it took another week before rescheduling. Then 2 weeks went by and no updates despite me following up twice.

    Selfish, inconsiderate and disregarding of the candidate experience. This interaction with SITA TA itself has turned me off from wanting to work there now or in the future.

    Interview Questions

    • TA spent too much time focusing on side projects and not the core job. I asked multiple questions about the core job but the conversation kept steering towards pet projects the TA person values and culture. And too much time proclaiming how great the person leaving the job was.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SITA (Bohemia, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    They made a full review of my work experience, asking for as much details as possible from each project I have worked. The MsC degree contributed a lot but due to a lack of experience in Azure platform I was dismissed.

    ITIL Service Transition Service Improvement Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SITA (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Grueling, without a good reason - two hours in the middle of the day - could not arrange for another time. Difficult for an employed person to accommodate. Panel Interview first - described the initiative this role is for, then all the challenges they face trying to succeed at it. Then a second, one on one interview with a different manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Only situational questions - "Tell me about a time..." Nothing about my skills set or how I could help SITA accomplish its goals.   Answer Question

    Manager- Technical Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SITA (Atlanta, GA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was highly technical on VHF operations, ground networks towards Airborne communications. It was a challenging interview and one needed to come well prepared.

    On the flip side, it took SITA more than five months to get me a reimbursement for the rental car used to drive to their facility from the airport. It appears their HR processes aren't streamlined for timely reimbursement. Both the HR Talent Acquisition specialist and myself had completely lost hope on the reimbursement due to the complex procedures within the organization.

    Interview Questions

    • Q1. How would you trouble-shoot or, rectify a VHF ground issue?
      Q2. Where would you commence to troubleshoot?
      Q3. How would you manage the challenges within the organization?   1 Answer

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SITA (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for the job online. I was immediately called by the recruiting company who introduced my resume to the hiring manager. I had to answer several questions for the agency which was part of their screening process. They sent my resume & information to the hiring manager who had an initial telephone interview with me. I was then passed to the next level which was a SKYPE interview with the Geography President who apparently interviews all candidates they hire. From there I was flown to Atlanta to give a one-hour presentation and met face-to-face with 5 people on site.

    Senior Quality Assurance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SITA in August 2014.

    Interview

    The Manager was professional and courteous and the phone screen went well. She advised me that the internal recruiter that I had spoken with would get back to me with the next steps in the process. It was a basic overall interview, not very heavy on the technical details, what you would expect for a round one.

    Interview Questions

    • I was able to answer all the technical questions with ease and came up with several good questions for the manager.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SITA (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    People work there seemed to be nice and approachable. The HR department is a joke unfortunately and lack any sense of professionalism.If you try to get in touch with the HR employee after an interview they won't answer you at all! Even though you waited for weeks to get a feedback, they will just ignore you if they chosen another candidate.

    European Talent Acquisition Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SITA (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Terrible, awful and arrogant candidate experience. I originally applied in January 2017 and exchanged some email messages with recruiters, but never heard anything back. I applied again in June and received a message in August to schedule a call with a recruiter. The call lasted 30 minutes where I had to answer situational questions relating to management, but there was no opportunity to ask any questions about the role. I had to break the call to go to another meeting as I had assumed this would be a simple two way conversation to assess fit. We arranged a second call where the same recruiter wanted to continue to ask further situational questions, by this time I had to change the course of the call and wanted to establish if this role would fit my career aspirations. I asked questions like 'who does this role report to', 'how big is the team', to which the interviewer responded I can find out the answers later in the process. The interviewer told me the call wasn't going well as I wasn't following the path of the call he wished to dictate.

    If this is the experience for hiring for senior roles within the internal talent acquisition team, I have no hope for the process for all other candidates. Interviewing should be a two way experience and it's not unreasonable to ask questions about the job on a second phone call. I broke the call and decided to withdraw from the process. Five minutes after the call I received an automated email telling me I was rejected from the process. WOW

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a project you've launched?   1 Answer

    Digital Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SITA.

    Interview

    The most ignorant recruiter in my experience! It was obvious that he is a contractor because he spent lots of time on irrelevant subjects such as the weather, his home town and the country I am from... His jokes about my nationality being the reason why I answer his questions in a "strange way" were offensive and rude. From the minute 2 I wanted to say "Thank you, I don't want the job anymore" so I decided to bring up a subject which usually is a deal-breaker: my need for work visa. Normally companies at least pretend that they need to check if they can do it and then come back to you with "no, we can't do it" or "we had better candidates for the role". That's the reaction I was hoping for but his immediate answer was: "We won't do it - I can tell you right now, we have shortlisted candidates that do not have this problem", So are you looking for the best candidate or the easy way to fill the roles? Also, being international company don't you feel like part of the global community where - oh my God - not every single person is British?!

    Anyway, I had interviews with a dozen of companies and none have called my visa status a "problem". None have used word "strange" when referring to the way I express myself.

    Never trust contractors in hiring talent for your business! They just want to hit the targets and they do not care about the image of your brand. Good luck to SITA with this kind of approach...
