    Location Head Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Oakton (Hyderābād (India)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    They used a head hunter for the process. After multiple rounds - including 3 video interviews - they did not even bother to get back with a clear response. For such a senior and critical position, I would have expected a much more professional handling of the process. Worse still, the confidentiality was not maintained.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing specific. I was asked about how I would be able to fit into a smaller organization after my current working in a large indian IT company.   Answer Question

    As this was an interview initiated by an employee recommendation the process was quite simple, the most difficult part was finding a time when we could all meet. the most interesting question I was asked was "Would I make a recommendation that would cause an employee's termination?"
