    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Sybase in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very thorough and detailed. I spoke with 4 people, with long interviews and competencies-based questions.
    Before the interview, I was sent an itinerary an name and job title of the people that were going to interview me. All in all, I felt I had all the info I needed at that stage.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked a lot of examples on the kind of clients I had worked for in my past experiences. They were mainly interested in someone coming from a similar industry. Also, an additional language was a requirement so part of the interview process was in that language. Not difficult, but wuite a thorough check.   Answer Question
