Software Tester Interview

Software Tester
Andheri East (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Directi in June 2014.

Interview Details – They took written test in first round, and shortlisted 15-20 candidates. After that Technical Interview was there. It was pretty smooth, nothing unexpected happened till then.
I cleared this round too, but after that totally unexpected happened. They told us that we all don't qualify for this role, and we can try applying another post of Technical Analyst which was totally non-technical job. We were in despair after all this series of events. Nobody saw any need of altercation, as it would do no good. They told us that we can expect their call in future for interview whenever vacancy would be there. I still don't know on what basis they disqualified all of 90-100 people over there. They totally wasted time and energy of so many people came! It was really disgusting considering the reputation this firm posses!

Interview Question – No unexpected questions!   Answer Question

Manager Business Development Interview

Manager Business Development
Mumbai (India)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Directi.

Interview Details – I had three rounds of interview and one case study round.

My first interview round was telephonic were I was asked general background questions.

Then I had a case study round in which a case was mailed to me and I had send my solution in 3 days time.

After the case study round I had my first face to face interview. During this interview I was asked a lot of question about my previous work experience. I was also asked questions related to my team management, business development & sales operations experience. I also was explained the job profile in detail.

For my second face to face interview, I was given many case-lets and questions were asked related to it.

After the final interview, the HR took my current salary and expected salary details.

An offer was made to me in a week's time. After some negotiations, a revised offer was made to me, which I accepted.

My entire process went on for almost 2 months and there were delays from the company side but I was told during my first interview itself that the process will take time as the senior people in the have to travel often.

Interview Question – You prefer a job with well defined tasks or ad hoc tasks?   Answer Question
