    Attended an interview....worst ever interview in my life, the guy in bangalore didnt even bother to go through my cv....treated me like a fresher.... and came across as highly incompetent.... even pay discussions was dismissed as if i was he was doing me a favour.... terrible pay offered.

    Reasons for Declining

    Terrible Company.. The interviewer ( a top guy) was highly incompetent, didnt even have basic interpersonal skills, came across as someone who didn't have any knowledge or even have the basic respect to go through someone's CV to see their experience. Terrible . Salary offered was not even a 1% hike when market pays 30%. The guy even admitted to the fact that they were plagued by salary problems and even asked me to 'come mentally prepared' for all these as if I had already accepted the offer. Definitely turning down. .
