    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Infosys in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Some strange guy called and talked to me for over 1 hr! He was inventing questions and keeping quizzing me while pretending to not to listen to any reasonable questions that I asked.

    I do not know if it was a game to pay me less. I didn't offer to work for less.

    HR later turned out to be unprofessional at the end.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Infosys in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted on LinkedIn by their HR person. I have heard all the good things about the company in India, but in US their practices and hiring process is much below par as compared to the US companies. I was made to travel for the interview and when I didn't accept the position; they stopped communicating and didn't even reimburse for my travel expenses. The hiring manager was extremely unprofessional.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Infosys in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was Weird. Applied through a Staffing Agency and God my Interview Scheduled. Updated my Info on their Database, got an email confirmation for the Interview. Drove from Sacramento to Fremont, 15-20 mts before the Interview received a call saying my Interview is re-scheduled to Next Week, when I told them I was at the Parking Lot asked me to come inside and waited in a Meeting room where the Slides were showing "How Great We are" presentation. Later called in for an Interview, it was more like a general discussion and told me there will be another Interview from a Senior Member but its 3 Weeks Now..No response.....

    I Have No Clue About the Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Infosys in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview from a placement company and she wasn't sure about the position. I went in for a face to face scheduled interview on a Saturday morning. There were many people interviewing and I was asked to wait and later lead to an office room. From there was called upon by the interviewer by himself. Two people asked questions which they had expertise and didn't have a clue about my skillsets mentioned in the resume or gave some time for me to explain about my work history.

    Two offsite genious assumed persons interviewing without any interests was really very unprofessional. Please don't waste your time.

    Do you have development experience? See you can get that from resume.
    Did you use classes? Do you know ther is class called Error? Excuse me...
    Explain the steps involed in JDBC? Types of JDBC drivers?
    Why should one use Stored Procedure instead of SQL?

    It was all vague and basic questions. Even while staring the process I know that it's gonna be a waste of time.

    At the end of the interview...one interviewer expert told the other expert that ..."I am done with her!". I was about to ask him - "What do you mean?" But couldn't take it anymore. Just told them "THANK YOU!"

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Infosys in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I received the opportunity through a staffing agency, they referred me to InfoSys. It took 1 week to get the interview scheduled. Interview was like a Job Fair, many candidates were called on the same day and time.
    After waiting for 2 hours the first interviewer became available. One person was on the phone from India,
    with him, he asked general questions why InfoSys, what kind of role you are looking for , why you want to leave your current role / domain to start new position. Second round of interview was more technical, like
    coding on white board, asking Java Related question.

    Lead Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Infosys in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is quite long and face to face interviews are mandatory in this company.
    On an average it takes around two months for hiring in USA in normal circumstances.
    They have preferred vendors who will actually approach the candidates for initial short listing and after that infosys HR team will enter into picture. They don't negotiate on salary until you clear the techinical interviews, HR round will be mostly for negotiations and they won't allow to do much of negotiation on salary as they already have some processes using which they conclude your salary based on your education and experience. They will mostly stick to a range for every level and they will stick to that range. But before they start negotiations, all condidates must clear a BG check , only after clearance of BG check you will get communication from HR. BG is done by third party in USA. Once negotiations are done and post acceptance of the offer letter, they will initiate visa transfer if H1B. They usually give enough time for joining and mostly they are flexible with the joining dates.
    One point for negotiations is make sure you know what is your variable pay because they will try to put as mush as possible as in bonus which is some times the only hike they are giving compared to your present salary, this will some times end up with no increase in your fixed pay.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Infosys in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    It's one of the worst interview experience,

    1) They called me to Fremont office on week end, we were around 4 guys waiting for the interview around 2+ hours, No Response from any body. everybody scold as much as possible :-) and vanished

    2) After 2 weeks, they requested to come again on week days, there was immediate telephonic interview from India - typical stereo type technical question.

    After 2 hours they said hr will come discuss about the offer letter and package. then HR came and took my all papers, after 30 minutes, HR said "We are ready to give offer letter now, but your name is already registered in other domain"

    WTF
