    Senior Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Varian Medical Systems (Palo Alto, CA (US)) in April 2020.

    Interview

    It was a pleasure meeting the professionals at this company however, the process itself was something out of the stone age. First, I interviewed with over 9 people on at least 5 different calls. Some of the interviewers were not apprised of what the role was I was interviewing for. Several interviews were rescheduled or cancelled. Most of the questions of a general nature were repetitive across interviews and it was clear the TEAM was not compiling information or talking as a group about questions to ask. In one interview, I was challenged to provide "documents" or previous work products which proved I " did my own work". Along the way I was receiving positive feedback from the external recruiter on the role. After completion of the interview or what I thought was the end, which was delayed several times due to repeat cancellations, I was told that they didn't have budget for the role by the external recruiter(which I find challenging to believe), who didn't even have the courtesy nor did anyone on the team to call and provide candid feedback after all the hours of my personal time devoted to this opportunity.

It seemed to go well enough and he indicated he would forward my info on to the hiring manager for a 2nd interview.

    Data Entry Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Varian Medical Systems in January 2020.

    Interview

    A recruiter came across my profile and invited me to a google hangout. When trying to connect to the video interview several times he mentioned that he would be conducting the interview via video chat. I've never heard of such a thing so decided not to proceed. If you can't give candidates face time to conduct a normal interview that says a lot about the company.
