    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Varian Medical Systems (Chicago, IL) in July 2008.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview was with a Recruiter. We all know the rules about phone interviews (no smoking or eating; no background noises; etc) -- someone needs to tell the recruiter that they should also follow the same rules as it was clear that our meeting conflicted with his breakfast.

    That being said, I had one face-to-face interview with the company. It was clear that I was very well qualified for the job -- almost exactly what the company was looking for. But instead of selling me on the job (convincing me that I was the right person) I got the perception that they thought I should just be happy even to get the interview. And when the offer was made "how dare I request time to think about it?"

    Interview Questions

    • Interviewer was asking questions that were testing my way of thinking -- he wanted to know if I could think logically. However, he had difficulty questions in a way that they were clear & understandable without giving away the answer.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Two reasons: 1) the Interviewer appeared uninterested in my qualifications / background. It was if he was simply trying to fill a slot - if I worked out then good; if not I could be replaced at a later date. 2) the company was not willing to be flexible on start date or location. If they are this demanding now what would they be like six months later??

    Additionally, granted that our meeting was longer than planned (which usually is a good sign) but who pauses and takes a smoke break in the middle of an interview???
