    Cyber Security Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Smart Communications (New York, NY) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Very inconvenient job caravan. HR made us wait and stand in the lobby of Smart Tower for more than two hours last 22 January 2020. 1000 people applied for the various positions.

    The HR assistant who interviewed me does not even know what cybersecurity is. He just asked my qualifications and details on my CV. I already had a feeling that the HR assistant already has a poker face and just weeded out applicants based on the school.

    He even did not get a full overview of my CV despite the different achievements that I placed on my CV. Despite being a former intern of Smart under IRM, he did not even get to tell me about the role. I even asked him why Smart needs people for their cybersecurity. He did not even tell me the answer and just told me that Smart is a very big company under a parent company.

    I will make sure to leak to the competitor what I had during in my internship with Smart as revenge for what HR did to me. I just really hope that PLDT-Smart will revamp and train their HR personnel. They don't know how to sort out candidates for the role.
