    I just applied to peoplesupport sa jobstreet. wala ako makitang opening sa sykes. Do they accept part timers also? or full time lang? I'd like to work 6-10 weekdays and 8-5 saturdays. i have a regular job already but i just want another one for extra cash.

    Patience is virtue.

    Honestly, you can call them up if it has already been a long time since they last called you. Say that you would like to follow-up your application. :D

    how come you know cantonese?
  • spadiaspadia Member PExer
    hello
    here is what happened today
    i convinced my friend who also speaks cantonese to go take exam
    we were 2:30

    i knew it was gonna be a bad day
    when first arrived sykes makati
    i was asking the guard of sykes what time is it...he just looked at the monitor..meaning check it yourself (unlike the friendly receptionist on the lobby who told me everything from visitor card number...to time and even the floor im into)
    while i was signing in...the guard gave me dirty grin..
    then told me that the test at 1..tapos na daw..

    HELL! im there not for that stupid iq test but chinese exam ...as requested by their HR..she told me go there anytime between 1-5

    i just said ok..sorta ignoring him ..i then met my friend..we then told the guard were to take chinese exam..i said i was looking for this person.blah blah..we wrote it on a piece of paper

    what that guard did was..he stood on the doorway of the office..
    he didnt go in to inform the person..it was I who saw the girl...
    then the guard gave her the paper..
    and this girl..(lets call her girl A, it was also girl A who lost my resume..thats why she told me to bring another one)told us to wait..
    and wait
    and wait..were left clueless....
    again I approached and asked her what time will i take the test...

    she said another person s gonna handle me(girl B)...and girl b s interviewing someone else
    so we waited till 4...still no one is attending us
    we got pissed off and left..

    were able to converse with another applicant on our way down..
    he was there 8 took the exam..
    interview supposed to be at 2:00..but was interviewed 4


    at around 5..girl B called up..but i got low batt...
    so after i got home i called her up
    she asked if im able to take the exam..
    "i said no..i just waited for you...werent you informed?"
    she said she was informed when we left
    so i told her...that i was there 2:30..and told the guard and girl A about us being there....
    so she apologized..and told me to take the exam tom.and look for her directly...

    i know that there are lots of applicants..but ..hey...were sort of diff
    since theyre desperately looking for multilinguals...
    they should give importance to us....
    or at least inform us bout the exact time of the exam..

    actually this girl A can administer the exam...
    just give us the questionnaire and we answer it..done...
    as simple as that..

    sykes HR ..sucks..sorry but true
    :(

    2gud4u...
    well cantonese is my mother language...im a
    local fil-chi ...
    :)
  • spadiaspadia Member PExer
    i took the test its all done
    have to wait for their call
    so far..
    what i ve noticed is that they dont really look busy..
    except for that guy who s calling the applicants via phone

    there were 3 others who were scheduled to be interviewed

    only 3 of them ...yet it took them hours...

    correct me if im wrong...well bout other HR staffs what i see is that theyre just walking around..sitting down..walking around....go out for smoke...

    parang la ginagawa
    i ll be at ortigas for next interview if ever ....so hope i dont see this kind of environment anymore

    by the way ..in fairness to the guards...one of them is actually helpful :) the tall one... :)

    :D
  • bong2bong2 sonicflood PExer
    hi spadia, i also took the exam last Sept 2 & was interviewed on Sept 3. the interviewer told me to wait for their reply within 3 weeks, & after that consider my application as failed. i hope they'll still call me. i applied for the customer serv-finance. the requirement here is that u pas the federal & state license to be given here in Manila. it's sort of giving advice about money & investment matters.

    alam mo, qualified ka talaga, hope you succeed in sykes!
  • EllheymEllheym entrepreneur PExer
    tsk tsk tsk

    balak ko pa namang mag apply doon... hmmmmmmm

    medyo wag na lang muna siguro.. parang mapasubo lang ako dito. :(
  • spadiaspadia Member PExer
    thanks
    lahat naman tayo qualified eh
    swerte swerte na rin ....kung may in demand ung position at wala masyadong kumukuha

    kung type ka ng mga taga hr impt rin ata heehehehe

    mas type nila ung mga gwapo't manganda hehe
    (overheard ko...guy:uy si etong applicant.....girl:gwapo ba?)

    heheh
    another...
    (guy:hmm galing US..nag aral sa states...overqualified na to...tindi ng credentials...)
    i dunno if its because that guys is from Us..or he is really good...

    anyone from sykes HR? sorry ..hope you guys dont get offended :)
  • bong2bong2 sonicflood PExer
    hello spadia, if ur hired inform me. well i hope i pass also. i have a friend in sykes ortigas, she's a tech support 2, she's fil-chi also. i asked her to refer me, so i bannered her name in the application form.
