    Initial communication - called on mobile for BI Senior developer position - scheduled a telephonic interview 2 days later ; received call one hour after schedule for a new time for interview for next day. Next day the interview was done on phone - not too detailed - simple questions asked. 2 days later face to face interview was arranged at a very odd time of 5:00PM. When reached for Face to Face interview was asked to sit and wait. After an hour of wait I was told that the person who was going to come to take interview had gone onsite!! so they will be rescheduling this again.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Mahindra Satyam in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to the position by my friend who is already working here for the past 6 years. The opportunity was an onsite opportunity in upgrading an existing system. I couldn't ask for more and had a technical interview with 2 of the employees for more than an hour on all the skills required on job with some examples. Overall the interview was good and then another round of technical questions with Onsite Manager the same day for around half an hour. The remaining process was taken care by HR within 5 days and the offer was rolled out within a week, since the requirement was urgent.

    Yes, I could ask for a negotiation in Employee Band level and Salary figures at offshore too.
