How do you handle a support request from the CEO whose email is not functioning when you are already entrenched in another support issue that affects the whole company?

The questions asked were in regards to the position and as to my experience and qualifications. They were very happy with my answers and wanted me to meet another individual who also interview me and ask me the same questions. Which were again answered with satisfaction by the interviewer.

Not a very professional outfit. Provided no follow ups at all. Then despite having the right qualification, rejected my application because I was according to the Hiring team "Over qualified" for the job. How do you spend that much time and have two interviews and then decide on not proceeding? Very poor handling. I would not recommend anyone work for this company. Less

You dodged a bullet mate, this company sucks.

The technical interview wasn't like id expect as no technical questions were asked and i didn't find the guy very knowledgeable when i quizzed him. Less

What does PST mean to you?

3 Answers

I said it was the file extension of an outlook personal folder file type.

PST stands for Pacific Standard Time.. An email sent from someone in the PST time zone will have the time zone listed as "-0800" in the headers of the email. (However, "-0800" does not have to be in PST, as other time zones could have the same UTC offset). Less
