    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at AECOM (Bangalore (India)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Magnasoft is a crazy company when it comes to hiring people. From past one year they have been chasing various people for Business Development position, they have approached me twice. They have a long process...wherein they would ask you to prepare a Business Plan etc for prospective business. They follow long recruitment process which a professional Tier 1 company follows, they want best of the candidates available in the market but when it comes to salary they offer peanuts. I suggest people to not waste time with Magnasoft's job openings. They don't even spend a penny for arranging one to one interview....all rounds are telephonic!! "Typical Lala company"

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AECOM in June 2010.

    Interview

    I had first a phone interview which I thought that it went great. But my one on one interview did not went great. The interview was with the department manager and he made me feel very uncomfortable. Not because of the questions but they way that he did behave, he would ask a question and when I was given my answer he will look away or act uninterested on the answer. I felted at one time to get up and leave.
    But I did stay through the whole thing. At the end I got the job but I have to say that I regret taking the job because the same hiring manager that I interview with end up not being a good manager.
