    Le recruteur me dit qu'il me contacterait début de la semaine suivante après avoir parlé avec le responsable de département…. j'attends toujours l'appel. Pas très poli comme façon de faire mais courant malheureusement

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Alcon (Montreal, QC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Long, perte de temps, manque de professionnalisme, beaucoup trop d'entrevues, fausses promesses, je ne recommande pas cette compagnie. Ils ne savent pas ce qu'ils recherchent. Chaque personne que tu rencontres recherche quelque chose de différent.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Alcon (Irvine, CA (US)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    Scheduled interview with individual named Travis Ougzin for Transfer Engineer position and it turns out he is interviewing for design engineer to design fixture and questions he asked had nothing to do with actual job advertised.
    He was so in rush in interviewing that I feel like he has no interest talking/hiring people with accent, although I has the exact experience they were looking for.

    Interview Questions
