    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Mahindra Satyam (Hyderābād (India)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I took up this interview in early 2013. There were total 4 rounds:
    1. Technical
    2. Managerial
    3. Was supposed to be with a "higher up manager" but then was turned into Technical round
    4. 2 min talk with "higher up manager"
    Total time taken was around 2 weeks. HR kept chasing me asking for interviews but then slowed down considerably after round 2.

    I have a speech impairment, normally it doesn't affect my communication and it was something which I was upfront about to the HR. In spite of knowing this, they made me go through 4 rounds only to tell me I was rejected because of my speech problem.
    So I guess its your choice if you want to trust them specially if you have any kind of impairment.

    Interview Questions

    • Only unexpected question was - You have a speech impairment why should we hire you? (after 3 rounds of interview)   Answer Question
