Senior Software Engineer
Hyderābād (India)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Mahindra Satyam in December 2010.

Interview Details – I was referred to the position by my friend who is already working here for the past 6 years. The opportunity was an onsite opportunity in upgrading an existing system. I couldn't ask for more and had a technical interview with 2 of the employees for more than an hour on all the skills required on job with some examples. Overall the interview was good and then another round of technical questions with Onsite Manager the same day for around half an hour. The remaining process was taken care by HR within 5 days and the offer was rolled out within a week, since the requirement was urgent.

Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected questions   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, I could ask for a negotiation in Employee Band level and Salary figures at offshore too.
