  • I have once called for interview for position of HR Manager and was shocked that juniors were taking interview for their senior and were asking non sense questions . Then i came to know by some resource that they have already selected person and this is only documents formality. Kindly tell that where to go if anybody has not close reference . where is merit. May be such positions are dummy positions so that nobody dare to question and blindly do what has been asked to do.
