CRISIL Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at CRISIL in January 2012.

Interview Details – Two rounds - one phone round and second was video conferencing... the hiring process took an eternity.. the HR was lackadaisical..... it took about 4 months... rescheduled my interview some 8 times.... the interview can be face to with the directors if you are in the city which has a CRISIL office....

Negotiation Details – No negotiation possible... HR is like a stonewall
