Very Easy Interview

Database Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Hunt Valley, MD (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Aon in March 2014.

Interview Details One of the Head hunter in Chicago called sends me a message in LinkedIn. Ask me if i was interested for this position opened in Maryland. I was not in market since my current job need lot of drive so i said why not if its near to home. Then she sends me 10 questions including why you are looking for moving what is your current salary? how much salary will move you to Aon? what is your immigration status? weather if you need sponsorship in future? I filled in and send it to her. I didn't hear until next 10 days. After 10 days I was sent the same email asking same questions. I replied then she passes to one of the HR person who schedules half an hour phone conversation. Conversation was fantastic and he said at the end of conversation that you most likely will be scheduled for the in person interview. In couple of days I don't hear anything I sent him an email to check if he was moving ahead? He sets up with one of the lady who actually sent me an email after a week and calls me set up some time to have in-person interview. She was very slow responding the email and she finally sets up something within the week and try to see if i was available in one of those days. I was given short notice of 18 hours Thursday 6 PM they asked me if i was available for Friday 4-5 for interview which I said no i couldn't manage then they scheduled me on Monday. Monday Maryland saw the big snow. Most of the day we had the snow so i sent an email to check if the interview was still on @ 11 am. The lady didn't respond me until 2:30 and was trying to see if we can postponed to Wednesday. I asked her if the office is opened today I am ready to do today since i already took day off. she told me yes it could be done.
I got there 15 mins earlier to the slotted time. I was received very casually and there was no hi nothing. An Indian man shows up dressed very casual and walk me down to one of the conference room from stairs though they had elevators.There was no politeness and offering of any kind of drinks or even water. He was not interested to talk nor he was willing to discuss about the position and hear about me. Asked me couple of Database related questions. Ask me to write the code on the paper. Those were very simple question which i answered very well very generic question.

I was told there will be three interviewer but he was only one who interviewed me and he was uninterested while talking to me. he asked me if i have been in such situations kind of question so while I was responding if i give example of my past work related such situation then he used to make faces and cunning smile. He walk out twice during the interview and there was no formal ending of the interview someone comes in open the door and asks him something during the interview. Interview last about 40 mins of which 20 mins he leaves me alone in room and come back and forth. I don't hear back until a week and I asked one of the HR personnel if there is any updates for me he send me email after 2 days they are pursing other candidate.
Very Unprofessional, no common sense and no common etiquette appreciation or anything.
