    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CGN Global in May 2017.

    Interview

    I have given a lot of interviews with a lot of companies, but I had the worst hiring experience with CGN. The process starts with a HR pre screening interview where I was asked normal questions about my resume and why I wish to work for the company. After which, I got selected for the second round which was with one of the consultants working at the company. This was more of a technical round and was asked in-depth about my resume, professional achievements, skills, etc. [I'll keep a tab on the timeline of the process side by side, this interview was 1 week after my first round.] I got selected for the third round which was a case study presentation in front of a panel. A normal case study to test research ability, critical thinking and problem solving. This round also went well, but got rescheduled twice 10 minutes before the presentation because panel suddenly became unavailable. [Three weeks since first round]. I was supposed to be contacted regarding any further steps the following week which I never did. I followed up with the HR for 10 weeks until out of nowhere they decided to have another round of excel assessment. After completion, I was supposed to be contacted the following week, but did not hear back for another 2 weeks after which I received a standard rejection letter.[15 weeks after first round].

    The company has only 1 major client and all of their employment is based on the projects they have from them. So, your employment relies on the client and not how CGN is performing overall. They fired tons of people last year because the client had a major fall out. 90% of the employees are Indians.

    My recommendation: If you have 4-5 months to spare, then only think about applying for the company after considering the fact that if employed you'll be working with only Indians and your job relies upon 1 manufacturing company which is planning to shift it's process to Mexico.

    PS: This is my first review which I was compelled to share because of the horrific experience I faced. I would have shared this even if I would have received an offer.
