    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BDO in April 2016.

    Interview

    passed the face to face interview. Staffs are friendly from the reception to the manager. However, I have been waiting for the AC as they said in the email it would happen in a few weeks congrats. And it turned out next time when I followed up with the recruiter, she simply replied the position is closed I am sorry. no further guidance and very rude. really messy and disappointing recruitment process. I wonder if they still do the same.
