myss347413dWtf? I honestly hope girlfriends number part was a joke..
C0D44682113dWhy do you want to work here?
- have you even looked up this company? Do you even know what they do?
- it's used to filter out the CV spammers who are just throwing them at any job and seeing what sticks.
Are you flexible?
- expect overtime,
- expect strange hours when required
- expect late nights
- are you happy with a 9-5 job with the occasional light night?
do you see yourself as a perfect for for the roles?
- this could just be a test In itself. The safe answer is no, with room to improve.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
- this is to see if you have a plan, a goal for your career or hell even happy just to continue doing dev work.
I give up,
But most of these are standard questions to see if you actually fit within the company, have researched the company and are willing to work more then a strict 9-5 job.
@C0D4 interesting insight, but if you are having 2 to 3 job interviews every week for one to two months, it becomes exhausting to memorize all of the company history etc.
I had that last year. 3 interviews in the same week while having to learn for an exam.
That's simply not possible.
And besides of that no one would really love to do that. I can learn about the company after me getting the job.
essi38112d@-ANGRY-STUDENT- I don't think you are expected to know the history of the company, but it's reasonable to expect you to have looked at what the company does.
I mean - if its a consulting firm, the technologies involved and the general field that the company gets customers from might be enough. But if you're applying for a job in a start up company that produces assistant robots they will likely a) want you to have understood the pros/cons of working in a start up and b) be passionate about the future of robotics.
vane655212dBecause they’re trying to protect you from mistake they made a few years ago by applying for work.
@-ANGRY-STUDENT- with such cases I ask my interviewers the questions:
"Thanks, what's your company about? What does it do?"
"How's the team workflow like?"
"How long are your sprints?"
"Do you allow people to eat in the desk or do you provide a designated pantry?"
Stuff like that
Are you flexible?
Yes. (proceed to straighten my legs and touch my knees with my chin)
Wisecrack141212d" Nope. Have a nice day and suck my dick. I'm leaving."
I have to go out and apply to a job just so I can try this one!
And I don't even need the job!
