When there existed a real opportunity –
I was asked straight forward questions and hired pretty much quickly and these projects had higher opportunity of success. Also the hiring managers knew pretty much what they wanted and how the candidate suited the requirement.
When the real opportunity did not exist –
Interview was a mock drill exercise and from the questions it was evident that interviewers were not prepared, had not read the resume. It was waste of time and money wasted on dry washing the suit, gas for car and parking etc etc. The company and the interviewers seemed in callous disregard and respect for the candidate. I think this debased behavior occurs due to what is defined by the “Lucifer Effect”
The questions that interviewers ask evidently tell how genuine people are and the company is. Unfortunately most of it has become a mock drill exercise.
