I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at BNP Paribas in April 2012.

Interview Details – agents arranged phone interview and it went smoothly, they just asked me some what projects I have worked and high level technical questions. then I was invited to an onsite interview. I met two developers and the hiring manager. The interview is not difficult and hiring manager is nice. I then received an offer letter.

Very Easy Interview

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Mumbai (India)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at BNP Paribas.

Interview Details – They have 3 rounds. 1st is technical programming test. 2nd is technical interview. 3rd is HR round.

If you have done programming in .NET and worked in a place where people follow SDLC it will be very easy to solve the problem they ask you to code.

2nd interview was a mix of behavioral questions and technical questions. I liked what they asked because it was based more on understanding of the technology rather than textbook questions. Seemed to be a good place with good people to work with if they would have given me a competitive offer.

3rd interview was HR round where some HR will ask u jsut the usual questions every HR will ask you.

Interview Question – How does a memory leak occur in .NET if we havent used any unmanaged resources or they have been disposed off?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Offer was way below a competitive offer that a company of their stature would give their candidate. Was really surprised and disgusted at the low-ball offer given and there was no negotiation on it.
