    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sandvine in February 2015.

    Interview

    Simply embarrassing for Sandvine. I reached out to the HR person who posted an opportunity on Linkedin she got back me pretty quickly to set up a first interview a couple of days later. When the time arrived, no one called. I emailed the HR person, who emailed me back much later the same day explaining she had been detained in meetings. She asked if we could reschedule - I agreed. I provided a few times I was available over the next few days and didn't hear from the HR person again until after all of those suggested times had passed. When she emailed me again, she apologized once more and asked for new possible times to chat. I again provided a few options - and the same thing happened again; no response until all of the possible times had lapsed. When the HR person emailed me again (once more apologizing and asking me for times to discuss the role), I responded by asking her to suggest a few times to me. I never got a response. Truly amateur experience.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sandvine (Waterloo, ON) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was very straightforward. I received a message from the HR Partner and the next day we had a pre-screening Skype call (position was abroad). Very nice interview, I was asked about my experience and willingness to move to a new Company/Position. Interview took around 30 minutes.
    As soon as she identified me as a candidate, she setup an interview with the hiring manager and the person currently in the open position. In less than a week I had three interviews with them and I received an offer.
    We have multiple back and forth messages related to the offer. I received very quick and precise answers to all my questions from the HR department and the hiring manager. I accepted the position.
    All the hiring process took around 3 weeks, less than any other hiring process I have been involved.
