Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Ministry of Education Singapore (Singapore) in May 2019.

Interview

Due to the previous candidate taking a longer time, I only manage to start the interview a good 20 minutes after the scheduled timing. Interviewers consist of 3 people, who are 2 Vice Principals, one each from a primary and secondary school, and a HR personnel.

The interview went off good but midway, I felt that the interviewers were undermining my current job and the issues I deal with in my job on a daily basis. They also didn't bother to read my resume as they ask a few irrelevant questions that did not apply to me.

I was rather underwhelmed by the interview process. The interviewers also did not bother to ask if I have any questions regarding the position and ended the interview abruptly. To me, a good interview is one that goes both ways, a dialogue. It felt as though they are putting themselves on a pedestal and that other jobs are not comparable to theirs. I also felt that they were also rushing through the interviews because they had no time.

The outcome of the interview is not made known yet, but I am quite sure I would not want to work in such an environment.
