Asking me to wait for time and again for actual interview call with the CEO

2 Answers

My response about the interview would speak for my answer

Hello dear applicant, I'm sorry you didn't have a great experience in your interview process. I am Paul-André, the CEO, and yes, I am the one undertaking the 1st level interview calls. I regret that you had been postponed on more than one occasion. As you know, our scheduling process allowed you, and very many other candidates to schedule 30 minutes in my calendar directly. Clearly, this process seems super efficient at first, but lead to far too many interview calls being scheduled. I'll make sure to adjust our process so that this doesn't happen anymore. One thing I will however continue to do is to personally get involved in the hiring process at our amazing company. As you have applied for a QA position, I can understand your frustration about the quality you felt we project. This is my fault, and I apologize. I encourage any and all feedback regarding me, and baseline, all the time. Although I do like the glassdoor platform alot, I find that it's prone to be used by people with less than expected experiences, and very rarely with those who are happy. On average, for every 1st interview I've asked my EA to postpone, I can assure you that there were another 2 or more that didn't show up. We live in a digital world, it is hard to keep the balance between meeting high expectations and efficiency. Thanks for your feedback. Even if it's quite rough (telling others not to apply), I take your comments seriously. Best regards, Paul-André Savoie CEO & Founder Less

The key in these questions is to cover the fundamentals, and be ready for the back-and-forth with the interviewer. Might be worth doing a mock interview with one of the EPAM Systems or ex-EPAM Systems Software Test Automation Engineer experts on Prepfully? They give real-world practice and guidance, which is pretty helpful. Less


Describe a personal challenge and how you overcame it.

1 Answers

I had been working on a team programming project with a group of people with completely different personalities/backgrounds. I was selected to lead the team and had to get them to work well together. I did that by taking the time to get to know them all well and discover what their needs/wants were from the project. Then I balanced that against the work load and distributed work best suited to their individual talents and what they wanted to learn/do on the project. If there were problems/disagreements, we worked through them for the good of the team. We all had an equal say in final decisions. Less
