Been a week since I've submitted my application through [email protected] Do they normally send out interview calls or do they wait for the end of the application window?

Got a call from HR today for an interview as procurement executive next week. Submitted application about a month ago or so..

Read that there is a written test before a panel interview.. Is it still the same now?
Also, they seem to be asking a lot of procurement specific questions. Does that means they are looking for people with relevant experience?

I did a panel interview thats all. they just want to know that you are not the kind that will jump after 1 year. So if u really wanna get it, go read up on procurement and do your research. Generally, the interview is fairly easy, they didnt ask me any questions that will threw me off guard.

INTERVIEW TIPS : go read why people think procurement is interesting - you might be able to adapt some perspectives from there and tweak your interview. After all, an interview is a show of your "talking skills" (they need to see you are interested in procurement and will be here to stay).

Source : was offered procurement position 6 weeks after interview (i thought no hope already). was given G50 form to fill up within 1 week after interview.

Have question : they offered me a salary but I want to ask for a raise of maybe 50-100. is it possible ? anyone have experience with this ? how to go about doing it ?

Results not fantastic... im not the book/exam smart kind of person. dont listen to those who say third class honours wont be considered. All you need is to convince the director/interviewer u have the passion to excel in this role and stay in this job for awhile.

Pay is quite standard to what the others shared earlier.
