    Senior Quality Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chennai (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Chennai (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Mahindra Satyam in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process here is tailored to look complex and thorough but is actually a colossal joke. They had a written test for me which could be passed by a 2 yr old. The next round is a group discussion which does not have a moderator or watcher... So you end up just chatting with fellow applicants. The next 2 "technical" interviews were so ridiculous it felt like the interviewers were more interested in asking me about my personal life rather than my skills for the role. I guess one can't expect any better from a services company in India.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Mahindra Satyam in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    there were two rounds of interview. one by local person and another client. Local Interviewers are technically weak in general. they look only for salary component to keep their acquisition cost minimal. Client is generally overseas US or European, and may grill on technical aspects. The USP is onsite opportunities which is 10% to total team strength. generally you have be in good books of manager to get that.
