    Interview

    Horrible recruiter who doesn’t know how to explain the business very well and also has poor communication skills. If she’s the recruiter who is representing the company...then it is setting a poor example for the company. During this pandemic people want to communication on status, not to have to reach out and ask for one and months later get a reply that they put the position on hold, but then asked about another position and not hear from her again for another month and a half!! She didn’t even remember that she had previously reached out to me. She’s hands down the worst recruiter I’ve ever dealt with. I actually hung up on her because she tried to justify not contacting me previously and tried to critique me for saying that applying for jobs during this pandemic has been stressful and frustrating!!!

    Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thales (Irvine, CA (US)).

    Interview

    The process took about a week. Applied online and went in for a face-to-face interview.

    The interview was pretty easy. The interviewer was nice and explained a lot about what the company mainly focused on. So the interview itself was a great experience. However, after the interview, I sent an email a week later to get an update but no reply. I waited for another 2 weeks and sent another email to the interviewer and still no reply. It's been a month and still no update at all. I find it very rude for them to ghost people especially when an email is sent to them.

    I did check their website to check on my status and it still says "Interview process". So this makes me very confused.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Thales (Irvine, CA (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I had 3 rounds of phone interview including 2 rounds of technical questions. They ask you questions based on the concepts or language you wrote on your resume. They weren't as challenging, however, they expect you to know the fundamental concepts as a programmer.
