    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Singapore University of Social Sciences (Singapore) in August 2015.

    Interview

    First, there was a 30 minutes written test on a complain letter from student, then followed by an interview with a HR senior officer and 2 managers.
    The whole experience was very unpleasant as they keep probing into my personal life, rather than focusing on questions related to the position or the company. They would also want to look through all the academic results from university all the way to secondary school.
