I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Infosys in November 2013.
I was initially contacted by an Infosys HR rep who found my resume on dice.com and inquired about my availability for a position her company was trying to fill in Phoenix. I informed her that I was indeed available and she proceeded to set up a phone screen. Subsequently, I spoke with 2 IT managers from HQ in Bangalore and had a 40 minute conversation in which I discussed my technical background and responded to their questions. I then proceeded to the next level of HR processing which consisted of another phone screen with a different IT manager from HQ which went well.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Infosys in November 2011.
Initial interview communications is usually conducted by offshore resources(junior resources).These conversations tend to be around skill set matches, experience and suitability for the job. It is pretty difficult to provide the correct answers in these initial interviews; unless you deftly interview them and get the run down on what they are looking for. Once you learn that, you can then provide the appropriate information. 2nd and 3rd rounds of interviews tend to be conducted either in person or via video conference, depending on the location and interviewees schedule. To do well on these interviews, be prepared, learn about infosys, understand their delivery/consulting and value compared to other companies. Understand that they rely on people who can drive actions and move things based on part on offshore talent and resources. Showing you have those kind of experiences and skills will certainly help.
- Ability to work with and deploy other technologies than the ones for which you are applying for. Ability to adapt to new learning and challenges? Answer Question
Yes you can negotiate, provide relevant market and salary data

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months – interviewed at Infosys in February 2011.
6 months long... There were 5 telephone interviews which included 3 types; technical, management & general HR. After completing those 5, I had one in-person interview where the interviewer was flown to my location. The interviews were generally 1 hour each though a couple slid into the two-hour category. The final step was a background check which was botched by the contracting firm.
- The most unexpected question was one about a particular technical issue with the platform I was to work with. I was asked how I would create a dynamic looping mechanism within the tool under a scenario where the system would spawn X sub-processes across business units based on process-level meta data. I was able to answer how it can be done on another platform, but informed them the platform we were discussing did not have the feature. As such, I stated they would have to custom code an external service to generate the sub-processes. Many follow-up questions were posed which made it obvious I was being asked to consult on the interviewer's current project problem. Answer Question
Negotiations were early in the process where you were asked for a range. They came back with the offer at the bottom of the range and refused to budge on the number at the conclusion of the interview process.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Infosys (Fremont, CA) in December 2010.
The most simple I ever had. Some random questions about my knowledge of the information systems, and in 30 minutes I was hired.
I could negotiate what I wanted, in fact i just gave my number and this was accepted without a discussion.

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Infosys (Dallas, TX) in October 2009.
Interview was the typical consulting case interview approach. Included a two traditional cases, one non-traditional where I had to pick a topic and prepare a short presentation. The final interview was behavioral. Overall the interview process went very well,but the types of question they ask today may vary depending on the group you are applying for, it may be more technology focused.
- A couple of questions to check that you are quick on your feet. Example give me 10 reasons why a product could be off a shelf , you have two minutes. Answer Question
I didn't negotiate

The process took 1 day – interviewed at Infosys (Plano, TX) in May 2009.
The interview was set up by someone, the tracking was done by someone else in HR . The interviewee was the first screen and all he had to ask was dive deep into one product area, which i worked on recently, which was not very relevant to the job. I tried to offer an overall pictur eof my experience, but he was just wanting me to focus on this one thing.
