Anonymous Interview Candidate
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Capgemini in May 2013.

Interview Details – Phone screening interview with recruiter...the basics. Phone interview with hiring manager (Partner, Practice Lead). Phone interview with Sr. Partner (overall Practice Leader). Very professional and to the point. However, the final interview felt like an interview for a completely different job. No further communication following final discussion.

Interview Question – Final interview had extensive technical questions not related to the specific job role.   Answer Question

Senior Manager Interview

Senior Manager
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.

Interview Details – Unfortunately, the interview process was ardrous and unclear? I applied for one postion and was contatcted by a second recruiter who NEVER stated and or confirmed that position he was contacting me for?? After discussing career experience, at great length, he presented my credentials to the hiring manager who requested that we meet. However, as I am currently employed and travel,eighty five percent of the time, I asked if we could meet the following week.
The next step was that I recieved an email message stating that I was no loger being considered for the position.
Against, the recommendations of colleagues who have gone through this process, I pursued it anyway.
In short, if you are a senior sales/business development professional, please do not waste your time with this organization.

Interview Question – There were none from my perspective   Answer Question

Senior Manager
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Capgemini in January 2013.

Interview Details – Extraordinarily friendly, engaging, and intelligent recruiter who provided a detailed description of the position. The next discussion was with the practice leader who was very experienced in industry. We agreed that another opportunity would be best. Nonetheless, it was a worthwhile interview experience.

Very Easy Interview

Senior Manager Interview

Senior Manager
Bangalore (India)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Capgemini.

Interview Details – I applied through a friend and the process took 4 months. I was invited to teleconference with the hiring manager in Europe. The Hiring Manager seemed to have no functional experience in Sales Support. She was from a marketing background I learned later. There was no written JD, please insist on written JD's or you will end up doing odd jobs. I was given a chance to ask questions but found that both the hiring manager and the India manager had no knowledge of the function. Both seemed be to be just managers of the team. Then there was a video conference with the same person where she asked some pertinent questions like why I had a brief stint in one of my former companies. The company has shut down and she seemed satisfied with the answer. This was followed by a brief VC with an AVP who also seemed clueless when it came to Sales Support. Last was a written test that I cleared. This whole process took three months. Then came HR round.

Interview Question – Give me an instance where you showed collaboration to win over a customer   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You have to be careful here. The trick HR uses is to give you the same fixed salary as you last job and give you a bonus that makes the entire package looks like you are getting 25 to 30% hike. Do not accept if you are not happy as you will be stuck with the same package for years as yearly increments are pretty low.
