Interview Question

Analytical Scientist Interview



HR manager has asked me: Do you own a house? Are you married? Do you have children and how many? etc. The was no reason for asking these questions. I felt disrespected when i heard them. My enthusiasm for GSK melted like snow is a sunny day. I didnt have anything to hide, but i felt undermined and devalued.

I asked him why does he think these aspects of my private life should be discussed at this interview.

Hi, do not feel be insulted, GSK interview is behavior based interview, and I think they were trying to evaluate the relocation fee that you may need.

It's illegal for any hiring decision to be made based on marital status or children, so if you were really asked these questions you should report it to HR and the labor department.
