Standard technical questions: I couldn't awnser them mainly due to the fact that I had never used the technology that they were looking for! Very frustrating. The interviewers asked my age very early on in the interview, and then laughed and joked about it when I told them.

As soon as the interview was over, I emailed the HR manager and explained my problems.

At the end of a 3 hour interview that went perfectly, I was told I'd meet the president of the company. Prez came in and said, "I have 5 minutes." He showed me a bad photocopy of the company's core values... status quo. I said, Yes! I agree. He asked me, "The client is always right. True or false?" I said, "Well, the short answer is 'yes, of course! But for the past decades there's a much larger understanding of customer relationships... and it involves developing a partnership and strong supply chain" . They never called me to inform me of the interview result. I reached out the the company director who never took or returned my calls. No wonder that outfit had a non-stop search for production supervisors and process engineers. The company will be gone in a few years. Moins


Generic questions about my life, how I react with others, in front of conflicts and a good amount of tech questions because the job is tech oriented.
