    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Anglo American (Soweto (South Africa)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    The hiring process was so long, applied in May and only got to be interviewed in August. I was ghosted for the whole month August with no feedback after doing variations of my qualifications, criminal background check and writing psychometric test. I am still waiting even now to know if o got the offer or not.

    IT/Digital Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Anglo American.

    Interview

    I was approached by an offshore-based recruiter to interview for a role that is identical to one I do now for another Fortune 100 company. The recruiter was late for our call and did not seem to be well prepared in terms of his understanding of the position or the needs of the hiring manager. He asked one or two questions, did not make much of an effort to probe my experience, and ended the call after about five minutes. It felt like a superficial process, and from the point of view of the applicant, not terribly respectful.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Anglo American (Durban (South Africa)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Was a long drawn out process. Was a little disappointed with lack of feedback. Video interview and phone screening questions were very similarly asked (if not the same).
