I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Capgemini in June 2013.

Interview Details – The interview and selection process is similar to many big 4 firms. But the recruiting team is great and very aggressive to the business requirements of the client. Good process for screening as uses phone and Skype which avoids the issue of fake profiles for client purposes and internal hiring process

Manager Interview

Manager

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Capgemini in July 2010.

Interview Details – Initial contact was a referral from a business colleague. I had a screening interview with HR over the phone about one week after that contact.

Following that screening, HR set up a phone interview with the hiring manager about two weeks later. The hiring manager was travelling overseas so the interview lasted 30 minutes and he was in a hotel room and clearly exhausted. Several days later I was told that CG would fly me to their location for a face-to-face interview with the same hiring manager. So far, so good, now somewhat excited.

The onsite interview - same day as I travelled - was rather a disappointment. Hiring manager seemed unprepared. Certainly nothing that could be called Behavioral Interviewing and just some general questions that were related to the job. After an hour I was taken to interview with another manager who seemed to have no idea why he was talking to me. He had no questions for me and just wanted to know if I had any questions of him. I suspect that these were all competent people who were just so busy that they had no time prepare for anything - constant react mode. The office environment there was like a tomb - eerily quiet considering how hyperactive the business had been described to me.

I flew back home thinking that I hadn't done a great job but, reflecting on the interview, not sure how that would have been possible. As usual the last comment from HR was, "We are going to make a decision quickly; we're hurting."

After several weeks of no response I pinged the HR person for an update and was told only that the hiring manager was travelling again and so the hiring process was on the backburner. Since then, despite several more pings to HR for an update, there has never been a reply of any sort.

Recently via some clever searching on LinkedIn, I believe that I have identified the person hired to fill that role. I'm fine with not being selected but peeved about the radio silence! Most professionals can handle rejection just fine - we deal with it a lot.

Administrative support that set up my travel and interview was excellent.

Interview Question – Nothing stands out. One interview had no questions for me at all. Just wanted to know if I had any questions of him.   Answer Question
