    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Gemalto in March 2018.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional organization. I had multiple phone interviews and was told by almost everyone, including the hiring manager and the senior person I spoke with, that they thought I would be a great fit. The original HR person (who suddenly was no longer with the company) talked specific pay and basically told me that I should expect an offer if the remaining phone interviews went well. They seemed to. Then they told me they were also interviewing one other person and they would get back to me. They went completely quiet on me and I reached out to HR repeatedly. Finally I sent an email to the hiring manager and copied the new HR contact and within 15 minutes the HR contact called me. He said, sorry we pass. I was confused because it was in direct conflict with things I had been told. I asked for an explanation and he said they decided they wanted the position elsewhere. Funny, they had told me the team was spread out all over the world and that the position was remote. The hiring manager had also told me when I spoke with her that I would be a good fit for this job but she also had another job she thought I would be a good fit for. I asked about that and was told we have your information and we'll let you know if something comes up.

    I am a professional and I always carry myself as such. The drastic shift from what I was told during my conversations and the final outcome makes no sense. And....if it were true that they had decided they wanted the position located elsewhere, then that is a decision that should be made before posting the job so that you don't waste everyone's time.

    My advice---Don't waste your time interviewing with this company. If this is the way they treat interview candidates they claim they like (3 of the 5 interviewers told me that as well as both HR people I spoke with) then how are they gonna treat you if you work there?

    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!!

    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.

    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.
