Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY) in February 2011.

Interview

You can get the job when you're asleep. Easy questions with pre-defined answers. As long as you answer everything politically correct, you will get hired.

Even for interviewing a technology post, you don't have to be technical at all. If you're interviewing for a business analyst spot, as long as you seem smart, you are hired! You don't need to know the business aweful a lot!

Interview Questions

Negotiation

You can squeeze as much as you want from this company as it is losing people left and right.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Société Générale (Chennai (India)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Had two face to face interview at Chennai for a opening. Hierarchy is very layered and can be misleading. Example: TL - 8A/8B, Asst Mgr - 7A/7B, Mgr - 6A/6B etc

    H.R is not very transparent about hierarchy in the company and this can be misleading and cause confusion for any potential candidate applying for an opening.

    Had 3 rounds of salary negotiations post which offer was rolled out. It was only in the last round they clarified about the actual hierarchy in the company. In hindsight it was a difficult but good decision I let the offer go as much better offers came after.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Société Générale (London, England (UK)) in January 2008.

    Interview

    Straightforward and standard interview process. 1 to 1 interview in two rounds with final detailed HR interview. 3 rounds in total. Mostly competency based questions. Perception was positive especially of culture and people. Quite relaxed interviews and was able to ask many questions and felt I got to know potential employers well and get a good feel for the role and organisation.

    Interview Questions

    • Asking for detailed examples of difficult situations encountered in the workplace.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Yes did negotiate via agency, had to be firm and hold ground and eventually got what I wanted.
