    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pasadena, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Gemalto (Pasadena, CA (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    More than 2 months over the entire process. They started off stating the role was for immediate hire and the process would be quick. They had the HR round and hiring manager telephonic interview and then the face to face interview with some of the leadership team. A lot of questions asked and copious notes taken during the interview. Interview seemed to go pretty well and was told they would revert back. After that it was silence for around 3 weeks. Finally the HR calls again to ask if I was still available for an offer to be made and that he would revert in a day or two. Again silence thereafter till I called back the subsequent week only to be told that they had made an internal offer.
    I had read of such unethical interview processes where they call in external candidates to get ideas and inputs when they already have a plan to hire internally. Never thought I would fall prey to such tactics
    Future candidates be wary!!

    Operations Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Belcamp, MD (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Gemalto (Belcamp, MD (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Got a callback couple weeks after applying. The first interview was over the phone. Asked a few behavioral and company questions. Second interview was on-site. The on-site interview was more of an informative meeting rather than an actual interview. I asked questions about the company and the positions and felt pretty confident afterward. However, I did not hear back from them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gemalto in July 2016.

    Interview

    Difficult to get co-ordinated interviews. But they try really hard and everyone I spoke to was super friendly. Waiting between interviews was painful. But that is mostly because they are distributed globally.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Gemalto.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview shortly after the application deadline. The interviewer asked basic questions about my strengths, weaknesses, and greatest accomplishments. After the phone interview, I was called in for an in-person interview the following week. There I was interviewed by 5 separate employees. I was asked similar questions to the phone interview but went into more detail. They also were very interested in they type of analysis work I've done in the past or know how to do (using computer applications like Excel).

    Overall - it was a good interview. I didn't feel like i was in the hot seat and it was more of a conversation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Gemalto (Austin, TX (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview was a straight forward Java full stack developer type of conversation. The interviewer asked about my experience and then followed up with some technical question. I was fairly confident I answered them all correctly. After the technical test, it led to me just asking him questions about the development team, methodologies, work-life balance...
