Team Lead Interview

Team Lead
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Polaris in February 2013.

Interview Details – I got a call from a pune based consultancy for the opportunity. These guys informed me that there is a walk-in on weekend. I have reached there Gurgaon office on time. They asked me to wait & they kept me waiting for a long time. When I called the consultancy 6 time then they attended me. They have given me a telephone for technical round. The guy on the other end was from chennai.
After the interview they informed me that I have cleared the interview then a bit of HR discussion. The HR guy informed me I will have one more round. The very next week I had that round and the guy told me that you cleared the round and you will have a client round soon and someone from recruitment team will talk to you soon.
I think almost 4 weeks passed and I am still waiting for them to call me.

Interview Question – The interview was easy. If you know the basics well you can clear the interviews. The technical guys were not that strong technically.   Answer Question
