    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IGATE (Jersey City, NJ) in November 2014.

    Interview

    One interview - over skype. Very tough, text book questions. They were not much interested in what I had done in the previous projects/companies as long as I knew the text book answers. I tried to explain them that I do not know the text book definitions, but I can explain the concepts if you give a little background and they were fine with it. In all, I was not expecting the offer based on the interview, but they offered me.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of text book questions. If you are in DW, read Ralph Kimball and you should be good.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Very rude recruiter, very non-cooperative and totally unprofessional over phone and email conversation. Had no email etiquettes.
    I wanted to meet the client in person and they initially said they would set up a meeting. But even after signing the offer letter they did not set up the meeting with client.
    Did not send the address of the office even after final offer letter was offered.

    Interview

    Nice. Telephonic was good. Face to Face there were three rounds. All went well. But the timing mentioned was flexible which did not turn out to be true later. Questions were more on bookish terms. Less questions on the experience that I had. Rather I was asked on other bookish things. The interview went well.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at IGATE (New York, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was a series of questions with the focus on starting date and money. They refused to share salary range. My interviewer called 30 minutes late without an apology.

     Difficult to understand as I had to ask him to repeat a few times. This I believe was considered a negative against me.

    Did not ask about the 90% profit decline. Figured that could be addressed at a later date.

    Interview Questions

    • It was all about my former salary. Little focus on success. Binary interview.   1 Answer
