    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)) in August-2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very casual. There were 2 interviewers, one is the hiring Prof while another one is his research fellow. The interviewers were talkative and nice to talk with. Very simple questions were asked based on my CV and papers published. In overall the interview went well and according to them they will get back to me on the salary package by the following week. However there was no response from them since then. Emailed to them every 2 weeks but no reply too. Eventually I gave them a ring and only then they told me that the hiring on hold......
    It's so unprofessional way of follow up. They could have informed me easily by replying to my email. Couldn't find any reason of not replying any of the 3 emails I have sent.
    Definitely not a supervisor/team that I would like to work for.
