|Unfair Treatment In The Name Of Recruitment By Glo Hr by teadrake(m): 3:45pm On Oct 26, 2019
Few weeks ago, I received a call from GLO customer care (121), inviting me for an aptitude test for a role I knew nothing or never remembered applying for at JKK building.
I went for the test and approximately seven days later,I got a text for a follow-up interview at Ahmadu Bello way, V.I. Lagos.
The interview, I presumed preceded successful outing at the CBT stage.
The honesty truth is that the recruitment process particularly the interviewing stage was no doubt very shameful and pathetic.
How can you asked us to come for an interview by 8am when you knew your HR won't be ready to attend to us until 2pm?
It was clearly stated in the notification sent to successful candidate that sail through the aptitude test that the follow-up interview would commence at 8am on Thursday.
After arriving at the venue as early as possible (Around 6:45am,took precautionary measures vis-à-vis Lagos traffic),they wasted our time till around 2pm when we were told the venue for the interview is at Saka Tinubu street. We were tired, hungry but still hopeful.
The lead HR will simply ask of your name and probably the course you studied and that's all!!!
That's basically what she was interested in,no further Inquisition!!
It was my turn to be interviewed,I knocked at the door twice and I went in,I greeted politely,remained standing waiting for further instructions to take a seat which came in momentarily and I did.
The lead HR asked "What is your name"? I responded politely and humbly.
She further asked of my state and I responded following the same set of sequence as described above and she thanked me and asked me to go!!
End of interview!!
It was an unimaginable moment as I couldn't process what went wrong, things I did incorrectly which must have warranted such a show of shame. I got to know from a guy who came all the way from Abia state via flight that we were probably rejected because of our beards.
I can't seemed to see any when I looked at him,only saw a good looking, well shaved,well trimmed beards which of course, rhymed with what I have.
Those who attended the interview can make some attestations.

I dont know if your ordeal is true but it will be the height of incompetence to reject any candidate on the basis of having a God gifted beard .If I may ask ,are you going to be doing the job with your beard or your brain .
This is why Nigeria company with Nigeria standard of requitment will never be first class .the other time I saw a heavily tattooed guy working for google .

I guess what they've done is called stress interview, a cousin of mine went through the same in 2009 and this time it was Adenuga himself. They were asked to report by 2pm and they waited till around 9 or 10pm before they could be attended to.
Just be hopeful, it will end in praise like that of my cousin.

Employers should stop testing candidates patience in such a ridiculous way. How could you be testing my patience by wasting my time?
There are better ways of assessing candidates lets be wise.

Most Nigerians lack foresight and the ability to project beyond what their physical eyes can see. This is most common among our officers. Once they see anyone with "abnormal" physical look, he is automatically a criminal. I could remember some times ago, if you wore dark glasses, you perceived as having criminal intentions.
This is reflecting in our HR stuff. Most HR managers lack the ability to see the "human resource" in you. By the way, many of them are "Google HRs"-Go online and get some few questions to ask potential intake. Do this two or more times, you are HR (in many firms)

My brother just pray that one of these international multinational companies pick your cv/resume one day. The same thing happened to me some years back, got to the venue around 8am kept in a hall for good 10hours and only he asked 1+1 questions. Although,I got the job it it didn’t worth it. Last year, I got invite from an international multinational coy, first we were only 4 that was invited and we didn’t wait for even 30mins before the interview start. Secondly, the interview was strictly by what they see in your resume. Am working there now and I can testify that the problem with Nigeria is not the government but us. OYIGBO IS OYIBO QUOTE ME ANYWAY.....

Electronzeez:Not true. I was invited for an interview 4 months ago and the first thing I was told is that I can't work there with my beards. As I'm talking to u now, this is my 3rd month working with them as an accountant

dadalicious:Chief,there was nothing of such as we were all anticipating for the interview proper. After hours of unimaginable stress,you think misbehaving or chatting would even set in?
