    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Global Sources.

    Interview

    Went there 2 interviewed me.the usual questions and stuff. I answered all to my best ability even when they ask me detail trouble shooting methods.

    1 was attentive but the other was a slob, He slouch on his chair don't even wanna look you in the eye an uninterested look and constantly interrupts you and making gestures in the air with his hands as if to brush off whatever I have to say. Does not respect the interviewee at all. Pathethic really wonder why people have to behave like this
