    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mahindra Satyam (Hyderābād (India)).

    Interview

    One technical interview which is easier. Then came the negotiation part where they offered me a figure for which I have no options to negotiate. I was just given the choices whether to accept it or not. Not even the chances on negotiation of the position which they fixed it already.

    Interview Questions

    • We can offer you only XXX of salary and only XXX position. You have only 2 options whether to accept or not. Do you accept?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Mahindra Satyam.

    Interview

    Pathetic process.Recently got a mail for HR for scheduled walkin drive.They said requirement is till 6-7 Years in manual Testing /QC must.Cleared 1st round technical interview and was waiting for another technical round followed by HR round.But after lunch HR informed 2nd round interviewer left so come on monday.I went on monday again and after 2 hour waiting completed 2nd round of Tech review.Technical manager refere me to meet DU Head for another round of interview or might be for my designation.(I am TL with only 5.5 years of exp due to my talent).Now DU head started like HR round and when he came to know my exp and my salary he was started behaving like he got a dog bite...he said he was expecting people whose salary is very much less then mine current CTC.And also said he can not give any lead role to me...What a hell...After wasting my two days time then only they are saying this. Why HR didn't screen resources properly.In my resume what I have sent to HR its clearly mention my role is TL and My CTC is so n so...Even though it happen..Such a 'BHIKHARI" Company

    Interview Questions

    • Why u want to change ur current company ? Either for money or problem with ur boss. If U have problem with ur Boss then how we can say u will be comfortable with ur Boss here also.Or if reason is Salary we can offer only what ur current CTC.Not a single Rs Hike without any Lead role. I think that fellow doesn't know designation depends upon Knowledge + experience, not only experience.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Package and Designation depends upon DU.Might be this DU would have some limitation or might be problem with that DU Head.But as per my knowledge Satyam is not good in salary package and other benefit.Yearly hike is from 2-8%.Avg 4-5%.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Mahindra Satyam (Hyderābād (India)).

    Interview

    I was recruited as an ELTP (entry level trainee programmer) in one of the Walk-ins in Hyderabad. It consisted of an aptitude written test followed by a GD and 2 rounds of intervew (1 technical & 1 HR round) The techincal round questions are basic question of programming language in C/C++, operating system and software engineering and your engineering project, which can be cleared with ease. HR round was to test your attitude and instincts. All in all, the interview is not the toughest but its not very easy either. Out of 5000+ candidates, 81 were finally selected.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Pay package was fixed for entry level programmers. So no scope of negotiation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mahindra Satyam.

    Interview

    I got chance to interact with Satyam through Campus Placement. Tough Satyam was not my first choice, I liked their presentation and the career path they promised. The interview was very behavioral. I was interviewed by two people. One asked me some puzzles and another one asked anout C++. I was going to be trained in Java anyhow but I told them that I am aware of only C++. They looked for confidence in the interview and when I replied that I did not know something, they appreciated it.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiation, try to be reasonable in asking package. If you quote too high about market price, they might not consider you to next stage.
