    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Polaris FT.

    Interview Details

    First round was an online test, testing aptitude and Java skills. Second round was a Group Discussion round. And the third and final round was a short HR interview. The Group Discussion was based on the technical as well as social issues. Speaking about the technical interview, it was basically based on the CV and started with the regular question 'Tell me about yourself?'. The interviewer asked about the various projects that I've done. The interview concluded with the question that do I have any location preferences.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not much tough in the online round from the aptitude part, but yes, I would say the level of questions from the Java section was quite tough and covered a wide range of applications of Java like, databases, servelets, etc.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Informal interview process. Didn't seem on professional level on competing companies. Company is run in Indian way and anyone not from India will feel a bit intimidated. There was just one interview with the manager and nothing else.

    Assistant Manager, Corporate Communications Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process was incredibly smooth. The interviewers had studied my credentials and already had a position in mind. They made it a two way discussion and told me a lot about the company, to help me keep my answers relevant. It was a welcoming process. I liked the two step interview process by the department heads. The first step prepared you for a brief final interview.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected questions during the first two rounds. They knew what they were looking for, and at. And they made sure I did, too. The HR interview after all this was a bit jarring, like starting all over again. Concerns of competence, experience and expectation that I had addressed in the first two rounds were being raised again by the concerned HR representative.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was mostly straightforward. There was only one jarring note. An additional level of negotiation from HR was unnecessary and not pleasant. They will meet the accepted standards of a 20% to 30% raise from the previous employer, but candidates would be well-advised to expect a further round of negotiation from HR.
