    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kotak Mahindra.

    Interview

    For the basic summer internship in Mumbai sponsored by my US Campus, first I just gave in resume and cover letter. After quite some time, I got a response which said I'd been selected to interview along with many others. While scheduling a Skype interview they asked me about my previous work experiences and basic skills. Knowing about the financial services sector, Kotak, and yourself is the most important thing here. My position needed going into Rural India, so they asked me about experiences I had which would qualify me for that.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, just a basic stipend (in rupees and not much). Make sure you ask them just what your project is, that's the important thing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kotak Mahindra (Mumbai (India)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Interview had 4 rounds of interview, @ rounds with Internal Audit team members, 1 round of HR interview and aptitude test. Was mostly resume based, Interviewers were good to make one feel at ease. Got a call for background check after 14 days of the interview. Had lost hopes of getting a call from them, once I did get a call it really took a lot of time for the HR to go through the entire process. Every step took atleast one week and a call from the recruiter. The HR department really needs to speed up the hiring process.
