The career growth of a professional gets badly affected if one fails to take right decision about the company one is looking at for job. Apart from conducting good research about the company, there are certain things which tell candidate more about company.
To know what things indicate us not to join the company and what to do if we feel these things in job interviews, keep the reading continue as here we have provide all you need to know before getting into series of interviews.
Changing dates of interview
Frequent change in the time and date of the interview indicates that the company isn’t completely prepared. Something is definitely lacking in the planning of the company. If you join the company you will have face the same mismanagement. From reception to the room of the interview, the representatives of company keep its behaviour with candidates good and quite impressing. Instead of being happy with these things, try to assess what comes to you.
Conducting interview in group
There is no surprise if you have to through multi round interviews and group discussions. But, if final round of the interview is conducted the same way, then you need to be alert about the company. This reflects that the representatives of the company aren’t interested for the hiring of a best candidate but interested in using you as filler. The candidates who put their points in loud voice get benefit in the group discussions. But, this doesn’t mean that they are necessarily better in term of qualification. In such situation, the priority and seriousness of the company’s representatives can easily be estimated.
Sharing the problem of the office
If your interviewer repeatedly tries to share the problems related to the office, then you must understand that your interviewer is suffering from endemic frustration. Moreover, this also reflects that something isn’t going well in the company. There are chances that he will start complaining about you after you join here. So, to evade such situation, say thank you and begin looking for a job at another place.
Avoiding main issues, tasks, and target
In the job interviews, the interviewers are generally focussed only on skills, office culture, career, and other important things related to the position. But, if your interviewer keep his/her focus only on facilities such as holidays, canteen, and others, then understand that he is trying to conceal something. With doing this, he wants to get influenced and say yes.
If the interviewer does not ask you what you expect from the company then think again before joining.
Sudden change in the place of interview
If the office of the company is in Delhi and you’re called for the interview in Mumbai, then you need to be alert. This may be the bell of danger. Most of times, the candidates are called for interviews at locations other than the city they residing in. You need to be alert if the is occupying an office at you city. Try to visit the local office of the company. It may be possible that the representatives of the company are hiding something important from you.
Preferring personal work more than professional
As a candidate, you have to face interviews with enthusiastically positive approach. With you approach, you easily achieve you targets. But, this doesn’t mean that you’re meant for always saying yes to your interviewer. You need to be more cautious, balanced, and though full when the person who is interviewing you begins praising you. Moreover, it reflects that your interviewer gives priority to her/his personal works more than professional. You need handle such situation with wisdom; otherwise your trip may be different after you join the company.
Most of times, the companies lure candidates with the attractive salaries, facilities, and some other additional services. From reception to room of the interview, the representatives of the companies continue this until the candidates officially join the company. They paint a rosy picture about the company and try to hide what matters for a candidate. As far as hiring of the a candidate is concerned, the face to face interviews are the most important level. In face to face interviews, there is opportunity not only for the interviewer but also for the candidates to asses each other.
