    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Forrester.

    Interview

    Phone Interview - The person who conducted the interview seems to be based in India who handles APAC region. He was very arrogant and rude. I would not want to be working for a company where the HR is only bothered at getting a person at minimum salary hire to do the job and recruiter was a red flag as to how potential managers and company is functioning. Recruiter is also suppose to sell the company. He certainly sold the company in a negative way. When time to ask questions, he said there is only 5minutes to ask questions. There is no mutual respect. The call did not start per schedule due to the recruiter. Very bad experience.
