    SAP Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mahindra Satyam (Sunnyvale, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Had a telephonic round where the interviewer did not really ask me anything technical. Had a second round with the client manager and he asked me perhaps 2 technical questions. The first round was with a person who later became my obnoxious colleague. The client manager was a sensible person from the client org but he seemed to have selected people with zero experience also later on so I expect he takes a cut from the hiring company and as long as you are somewhat able to convey your ideas, you will be taken.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. How does item category determination take place in SAP CRM? 2. How do you set up a catalog and org in SAP CRM?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The company refused to negotiate on the salary. They are among the lower payers in the market. I only took the job because of other convenience and I guess they understood it.

    Project Lead Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Mahindra Satyam (San Francisco, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process with Satyam was ok but with client wasnt good. Hiring process wasnt professional. HR is pathetic. They dont give a heed to employee concerns. Once the visa was approved, they just pressurize you to join at any cost and keep on following on a daily basis to check if you are joining or not. Lot of insecurity and unprofessional attitude.

    Interview Questions

    • I want you to resign on this day. Negotations on salary not at par.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Pathetic.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Mahindra Satyam (Austin, TX) in April 2012.

    Interview

    They thew out a wide net and hired almost anyone to get the Help Desk set up in English, in America, where it first started out, to replace Indian voices with American ones and not lose the contract with the American Company that hired them and did away with Wipro.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They were extremely inflexible on pay and demanded signup for health insurance from day one - which comes out of the already lower than average pay.
