    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Headstrong (Chicago, IL) in February 2012.

    Interview

    None, was just as usual like any phone interview. All they wanted is a slave who can work non stop without opening mouth, and won't say anything.
    There expectation was you work like a slave and continue to suffer humiliation and insult which we are going to provide, and never ask for salary increment or any thing else/

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Headstrong (Chicago, IL) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I had multiple rounds of phone interview (atleast 6) and you don't hear from them until when they want to schedule another round. The HR person will just be bombarding you with calls every 5 minutes the day before they want to schedule an interview, hoping that you are available 24*7 for them. She will leave a message to ask you to call her back, leaving no additional message of why they want you to call back. No email correspondence either. They will sincerely ask your availability and say that they will schedule the interview at that time, but they wont get back to you or apologize for not calling. Your time will be lost in blocking that day for this recruiter / waiting for their call, while the time could be better spent on something else.
    The HR person does not even know what job responsibilities the candidate needs to have. They only know what position they are hiring for. It is better that you ask the interviewer from the project / client all these details and see whether you fit in the role.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary was too low compared to market rates.
    No proper communication. Seems the project people and HR people are not in sync. If it is the case even before I join, I wonder how it will be after I join.
    They never put anything in writing / email. Only phone conversations.

    Posted through employee referral. HR was initially not interested. You get a call only if there is a requirement on client side. They dont have a talent building process. HR took a phone interview with basic HR questions. Followed by technical interview by manager @ headstrong. Followed by 3 technical interviews by the client.

    Interview Questions

    Very much negotiable. If client has made up the mind, the negotiation is easy.

    Negotiation

    If you're good in your field ask for what you want, they will lowball you into an insult. If you really want to work here then dig your own grave. Stick to your number and if you get it, take it, if not, walk away.
