    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Capgemini (Multi (India)).

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    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!!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Capgemini (Calcutta (India)) in August 2012.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • In the technical domain itself and toughest work you would like to share with us.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Capgemini (Calcutta (India)) in August 2012.

    Interview

    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 Questions

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