    Ingenieur R&D Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thales.

    Interview

    This review refers to Thales Services SAS, it is a branch of Thales Group that provides consultants to Thales and other external clients, like an SSII. I applied to a generic advertisement published on a website.
    First contact with RH, that explains how they are different from other SSII. No technical question, nor explanation about the mission, nor the client.
    After more than one month, a technical interview via telephone with an Engineer, whose only target is to test your skills and see if there is a match with one of its clients (again, no mention about the real job you are going to do). The Engineer was competent in its questions, and acted in a professional way.
    After that, no answer, I had to contact them to have an answer.

    Ingenieur En Conduite Du Changement Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Paris (France)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Thales (Paris (France)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    2 months after applying online, I had a prescreening interview with HR over the phone that by the end of the call invited me for an onsite meeting (still with HR) on the next Wednesday morning. The on-site HR meeting led by two HR employees was not tricky at all.
    The same day at noon I was asked if I could come back in the afternoon on the same day for an interview with the 2 direct managers in charge of the position I applied for.
    This interview was more challenging with questions about my experience and vision of change management and questions about what I would ask a customer to assess their change management needs.

    Interview

    Thales Services à Vélizy. Entretien téléphonique obtenu assez rapidement après l'envoi de candidature. Il s'agit en fait d'une boite de services travaillant notamment pour la défense qui cherche un prestataire à déléguer en clientèle et non pas d'un poste fixe malgré ce que laissait entendre l'annonce... N'étant pas intéressé par de la délégation, je n'est pas donné suite.
