Applications Support Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Optimum Solutions.
Interview Details – Initial communications is through email. It was a mass hiring interview at some hotel. I interviewed with 2 hiring managers before I passed the initial stage. The 2nd interview was a technical call interview which happened about a few days after the initial one. It was then followed with the 3rd which was a background check and the actual offer.

Senior Business Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Optimum Solutions in September 2009.
Interview Details – Interviews were held with all members of top management. These were all one-to-one sessions and went off smoothly. The whole interviewing process was quick and the decision making was fast as well. Since it was quiet a small organisation when I joined it all decision making was finally in the hands of the CEO who did take inputs from his other colleague's before making the selection.
Interview Question – I really cannot remeber any question that was very difficult or unexpected. Answer Question
Senior Java Developer Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Optimum Solutions
Interview Details – First they will give a written exam. The exams are usually astronomically distant from the expected skill set of the applicant. After one has passed the exams, the applicant is asked to take on a series of interviews. One or more interviews would come from the client of Optimum where the applicant would be deployed. When the applicant passed the client exams/interview, he would then move to have another interview with the HR of Optimum.
