I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Mindtree (Pune (India)).
This was for a campus interview for freshers. The candidates were short-listed based on some criteria of marks like throughout 60 - 65% academically. The interview started with a Case Study and those candidates who cleared the case study were allowed to proceed further. The cleared candidates were divided into multiple groups of 8-10 members for GD. Those candidates who cleared GD were given a chance to appear before the panel for PI. There were two panels conducting the personal interview and finally those who cleared PI were announced to be selected.
- Case Study on Branding (Marketing), GD on "How can we match Agriculture as an industry with IT industry", PI on normal educational background and few situation based questions. Answer Question

I applied through other source. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Mindtree (Bangalore (India)) in September 2013.
I read it somewhere that an interview is the worst way to judge a candidate; sounds weird but so true it is. I had an interview with an amazing personality at Mindtree (a big shot) and he was clear what he needed for the position. They got my reference from somewhere and called me over for an interview. They were kind to take care of my flight and taxi expenses. I really appreciate the HR contact (Deryl Dsouza) for his help, he was new joinee too :). The HR manager was nice and polite. The interviewer put me in a situation, gave me a couple of hours along with a few chart papers and pens & wanted me to come up with a high-level solution. It was fun when I was free to think & consult them over a solution. It wasn't my best shot in the interview but he wanted to see how I approach a problem.. and overall it was a detailed and well planned interview. I really liked the way Mindtree hires the Minds... It wasn't just an interview!
- How would you change the behavior of people and make them do something completely different from what they have been doing from ages? (connect this to digital marketing) Answer Question
Communication could have been better. I was sent an offer letter before I could negotiate.

I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Mindtree (Bangalore (India)) in March 2010.
I'd applied to the firm seeking an opportunity to work in a smaller ambitious firm. After hearing a lot of positive reviews by the media, I thought it would be a good place for a consulting role. After the phone interview, I was promised another interview on a date. Making all arrangements to take the interview, I never heard from them. After 2 weeks, I get a call that some senior and "expert" Director of XYZ at MindTree is going to have a discussion with you. I was impressed at the attention they gave to my application but later came to be proven otherwise. I was interviewed by this Director who didn't even speak proper English, was very proud and arrogant. The most irritating part was that he didn't even know my name and called me a name of his choice throughout the interview (this was very irritating). The interview was lifeless and he asked a few questions which I answered. He later asked me a question from my area of expertise and he had a different view on the answer which was completely wrong. Even a quick Google search will prove that he was wrong. He wanted me to accept his answer, which I didn't and I stood firm with what I knew was right. In the end, I asked him for feedback on the interview and he explained a wrong understanding of the concept. All in all, poorly planned interview (didn't even know my name) with incompetent Director level person. Avoid at all cost unless you have no other option. If you're looking for applying new skills or specific high-value skills you've learnt, please stay away. A poor interview only reflects how bad the work life would be under these people.
