Please, if you have worked with Indian nationals, they know nothing! and trying to "act" as if they know something. So frustrating to work with these people.

Another repurcussion of globalisation - Singapore needs to introduce better Q/A to screen guest workers if the problem is one of inferior skills base

It also depends on where they are from. I have worked with software engineers from Bangalore and Chennai, they are far better (skills/communication) than those from IIT Bomaby or Delhi.

Hi Elias,

As far as I know, there are "professional" interviewees in India to handle the phone interviews. My previous company got almost 30 of them over, and need to start work ASAP. within 2 weeks, got to send 90% back!!! because they know NUTS.

I would expect this in Malaysia - surprised to hear it happens in Singapore?

I agree with Elias - its a question of integrating a better Q/A system to test the applicants for jobs from countries that have educations systems not standardised with Singapore.

Then again they are dirt cheap - bottom line; heck Im Pakistani and I'll vouch for Tamils being the best IT gurus

Well. You know what. About this, I somehow admire Japanese. Japanese can't speak well English and they are not interested in this language.

Indian are proud to speak English? You shocked me.

After USSR -Russia also existing with difference, No doubt you can imitate any kind of product and take the advantage of poor nations, that is your speciality, Chinese products mostly poular in afirican countires, bangladesh, pakistan, majorly 3rd world countires some time it takes the lives as well like tainted milk and banned chemicals on toys,
Yes West also buys the chinese product with thier standards

Indians are like monkeys who can be taught to do things by copying but can't be taught to do any original work.
As for who is the filthiest, dirtiest and butt ugliest people in the world: Do I need to remind Indian bhenchods that Indians are number one in this category?

Japan is great. They don't need to speak English, cos they Engineer, Invent, Innovate, Improve and deliver their best.
China on the other hand only copies, make sub- standards, cheats, hides as in keeping quiet about SARS, making fake eggs, filling half tin of Milk with Melamine...all done with TOTAL DISREGARD for Humanity! China has no Human Values.
YOu know, GOd made a mistake! If Adam and Eve were Chinese, we will all be still in Paradise, cos they would have eaten the snake and left the apple alone!
On 2nd thoughts..maybe we'll be worse off...cos they would have eaten the apple for desert!!

You mean they are obliging, not rebelious, peaceful players and work in harmony with whatever established protocols there are?
Very correct. We decend from the Bharat civilization...though todays Indian has lost most of Bharat's impeccable culture, they still have good roots that keep them acceptably mannered.
By the way, I'm referring more to the South Indians. I don't know much about North Indians but I know there is a big difference between them.
I could be wrong from my perceptions..North Indians and Pakis seem about similar??
Forgive my ignorance..perhaps it's because there are more Paki related people in North India making it so...like Bollywood actors/actresses

This I can believe, as I know that the Employment Agencies both in India and Singapore are just money minded and ar eonly intersted in pushing the labor supply at the cheap rates they are pressed by employing COmpanies here in Singapore. So, obviously you get 'under' qualified ones. It's the same even in the Domestic Helper market, where agencies used to push maids who are claimed to have traning but can't do a thing when they arrive. It's just a money game by the Agencies to supply the cheapest and make their big cuts!
I have worked with some INdian Nationals..I must say they are sharp. Sun Microsystems runs with Indians.
In an interview some years back..Bill Gates was asked what he would do if the Indians returned to India. He said "I'll go where the Indians go". He surely can't be wrong in his judgement?
