Rejection came fast for me, like 3 working days. This existing role I am praying for, the invitation came in roughly a week. I think straightforward rejection is software generated, invitation requires HR intervention.

Smile DXO hiring procedure

Hi all,

I would like to check after the site preview, I believed if you get an offer you will have to go for medical check up. Can I ask those who know if the medical check ups can be done on a weekend? Been taking too much leaves just for this job application itself.... 😪

Second question: How open is their HR in pay negotiation?

Appreciate all responses!

HI, same person.
From the moment I submit through the dxo portal it's been about 5 months. Too lazy to check, I remember I submit before end of school holidays then all the commanders on leave wait till cows come home. I'm quite lucky/unlucky depends on how you see it. My hiring dept was caught in leadership transition, but the crazy wait means the if I can wait higher chance I get the position despite my profile being not so stellar. Someone else earlier in the thread suggested 1 year wait.

Medical Mon to Fri only. Take time off bah, it should not take more than 2 hours. If u take 'extended lunch' and taxi there, maybe don't even need to take leave. It's at CMPB. Actually one psychometric, one interview, reasonable.. Yours is special case more than twice? All the interviews I been to no less than two stage. Job market is super competitive.

Not much room for negotiation, very much based on a confidential formula. When HR tells you the estimated salary, you decide how much you want to risk squeezing/frustrating HR if you have lots of chips to gamble with. No chips then don't gamble.

Hope this helps.

5months for the PT? Cause like once you applied through portal you will receive an email stating that if you donít hear from us within 2 weeks, you may take it that you have failed. So this statement isnít entirely true?

----- day 0
DXO portal submission (roughly Nov)
PT invitation (roughly 1 week)
PT test ( roughly 1 week)
Interview (very long)
Medical (very long)
------ I am here now, 5 months
Signing contract

When I sign I will dig out dates as a form of giving back to this community. For now still a bit superstitious/pangtang/uneasy.

Ya that statement needs to be updated. Pass or fail sure receive something.

Thanks for the clarifications. So PT is quite straight forward and fast. Either you get it else nothing. Itís the procedures that takes a Long time to process.

Oh I see.. wonder if the medical check up will come before they offer you the salary package or after? I'm not sure if I have any chips to gamble with. I just felt that they must have some kind of budget range they can offer you so I wanted to negotiate. Anyone who manage to negotiate successfully please leave a comment below! Thank you!
