    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at BNP Paribas (Chennai (India)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through staffing agency. First round was face to face discussion. Questions were simple. The interviewer concentrated basically around Java Collections Framework. There was one programming problem where the Interviewer asked me to sort a List of Employee class based on experience and if the experience is same, use Name as the sorting criteria. This process took about 45 minutes and I was told that I would be contacted if I had cleared this round. I got a call from the staffing agency for the 2nd round of telephonic discussion. This was an extensive round and took about 1.5 hrs. Questions were asked from Core Java (very detailed), Java Swing, Current application I was working on etc. I got selected for this round and was called for the 3rd round which was manager's round. Questions were mostly related to my studies, current project. He then said that there would be one final round on the same day and the Interview panel was located in France. This was a technical discussion where the questions were asked from Core Java, Database, Spring, Swing and JPA. Finally I was called for HR round after a couple of days.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at BNP Paribas.

    Interview

    One Telephonic Round: Very Detailed and kind of aggressive.

    F2F round in Mumbai: I travelled all the way from Hyderabad to Mumbai and when I reached there, they kept me waiting for 3 hrs 15 minutes, without informing anything to me.

    After 3 hours, the interviewer comes and apologises and starts the interview.

    5 minutes into the interview, calls up somebody , apologising again.

    15 minutes into the interview, checks his phone regularly, when I am answering to his question he is actually looking at the phone.

    20 minutes into the interview, came to know that he hasn't even booked a room for the meeting, have to leave for another room.

    15 more minutes of interview with his idea of a perfect candidate being an all-rounder and asks me to leave the resume and bye-bye. back to hyderabad from mumbai !!

    The only reason I went there was the hope that they are serious about it.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BNP Paribas (Bangalore (India)).

    Interview

    Initially got call from consultancy, it took 1 month to get profile shortlisted. After that it took hardly 1 week to process all interviews. First round was technical telephonic, second was techno managerial, third was managerial, HR was last round.
    Quite impressive all over process.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions was under related technical area. Good technical questions, technical people were very friendly and gentle while asking questions. Second technical round started with advanced technical questions coz they were knowing that candidate has cleared first basic technical round so they did not ask same set of questions which was quite awesome in general interview process.
      All round was good, HR round went long tough.
      But overall Great team of interview panel.
       
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    While negotiating, keep in mind your current CTC and total experience. If you're currently under paid then give proper reason of asking higher payroll. Be positive and confident.
