I worked at Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (Less than a year)
Brilliant people and good salary
Maybe not so convenient location
I applied online. I interviewed at Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in October 2016.
Phone interview followed by an invitation for a written test and a panel interview & powerpoint presentation.
Phone interview was quick, may be 10mins ? Then they sent me an invite to attend the interview next week. Then it was postponed. After almost 5 days I did not hear back from them and then I chased them up. They still could not confirm when I could attend the interview. Then the following week, all of a sudden I received a call from them if I could attend the interview tomorrow. I thought it was a bit rush as I had to prepare the powerpoint and needs to be submitted before the interview. I was told there is little choice to defer the interview as they have challenges finding a meeting room. Dubious response. I agreed to go to interview the next day.
I arrived at the interview and waited for 10 minutes. The person apologised for being so rush and late for the meeting. I was put in a room to do a written test, which was supposed to be 20 minutes but ended being 30mins. Next was the powerpoint presentation which was supposed to be 15 mins but was given 10 minutes. I was told to bring all my certificates, past employment letters or references for checking on the interview day - but they did not do that.
The overall arrangement was not professional and everything was done hastily and unorganised.
