    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Hong Kong (New York, NY).

    The interview is super fun. People are divided into different groups for groupd discussions. There are around 10 people in each group. The interviewer will basically propose one to two questions and then simply sit there and listen. Interviewees are free to express their opinions on the questions or issues.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Hong Kong.

    Interview

    The interview was with the Centre Director. After many questions about my experience he was keen on hiring. I asked for, and he arranged for, a contract. From the beginning, this contract had terms, which were unacceptable.

    Here is what I encountered.

    Normally a contract says that you write, and then get paid for the work you do. A client is then free to edit, as they see fit. Not for HKU ACRC. The ACRC contract's terms (to me) meant that a writer had to keep writing, rewriting, and editing the cases numerous times - hours and hours of research and writing - until ACRC felt like accepting it. Then, and only then, the writer would get paid.

    I found this unacceptable and requested for such unfair contract terms be removed from the contract. The Director refused. So I declined their offer before getting myself into a bad situation.

    What do I mean by that?

    If I accepted the contract (as it was written for me) then this would have meant that I would be asked to endlessly work numerous hours, endlessly, before they deemed the report acceptable. Once they accept it, in its final form, I would get paid. If halfway thru, I chose not to continue editing and rewriting over and over again, I wouldn't be paid for all the work I already put into it; all those hours, would have been wasted.

    My suggestion is that you read the fine print VERY CAREFULLY before considering this offer.

    1. Online programming test. Five questions to answer, the difficulty is low for people with basic algorithmic backgrounds, and you should have enough time to finish the test.

    2. Two to one first-round interview. The atmosphere is okay but should ask more relevant questions.

    3. Second-round interview with three people. I need to present one programming project I have done before. One of them is a professor, the professor didn't really quite focus on the presentation.
