I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Capgemini in August 2012.

Interview Details – I was contacted by college recruiter in Kolkata about that off-campus drive. Most of the initial interview process was explaining details about the company, and getting a general understanding of my background after I selected in aptitude test and group discussion one by one. I found the interviewer to be very honest, providing me with criticisms of the company as well as the positive points.

Interview Question – I don't recall anything too terribly difficult as the meetings were really casual conversations which I appreciated.   Answer Question

Vice President Interview

Vice President
Multi (India)

I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Capgemini.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process is too stretched and prolonged. Many times the subject matter expert will not be involved in making decisions. Most of the times the hiring department or manager will have to allow as many as 6-7 others to agree for a candidate and that takes too much of a time and makes loose good candidates on one hand and also frustrates candidates completely.

Interview Question – Not any difficult or unexpected question is faced. Most of the times the interviewer does not even have sufficient knowledge and capability to interview the candidate   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, I was able to negotiate and get what I wanted. But the sad thing is that whatever is accepted as a location ( base location being Hyderabad and working from Bangalore) itself was used as a political weapon by the political senior leadership to undermine the performance and ensure that poison is spread in the minds of Top management to ensure the failure!!

Interview Details – They have three rounds of Interview process. 2 are technical and 1 is HR round which is salary negotiations round.Out of 2 technical round ones could be a telephonic also.But in the end i even we all are clear. It does not mean you are hired. For lateral entry client approval against each person is taken and then. Hiring is completed. Interview are quite ok each round for about 20 min and in 2nd level same thing is being asked by a higher level authority and the same person will brief you against which they are recruiting.
