    No interview promoted from Intern-so I worked basically for 7 months so they liked my work and promoted me from intern to associate producer. At last, I realised that I was underpaid.

    It was campus placement process which i will be talking about. The 3 crews of HR members were on our campus. They gave ppt and clearly mentioned that those who are looking for the job in which marketing would be the choice as career would progress then forget about it. They also don't give you your choice of location and simply tell you that you will be doing clearly and only the sales thats what they are looking for. The took the GD in which they gave topics like impact of digitization on cable industry in India to 10 members in each group. Then they selected 20 - 25 people from near about 80 people applied at our campus appx for PI. The final selection were only 4.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Star India Pvt (Mumbai (India)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I got an offer from them. It was an unexpected one, but very pleasant. There were two rounds of interactions with a very senior person in the team in which I was basically asked about how I viewed the challenge. Accountability, I was told is a key attribute in the organisation. Overall a painless and good experience

    Interview Questions

    • There was nothing unexpected. The focus of the company is on delivering results, not just ideas. And that came across in the interview process   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer they made was pretty good. In that sense the organisation is very fair, and doesn't try to undercut prospective employees at all. I did a bit of negotiation on the variable pay component, and they agreed to my request.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Star India Pvt (Mumbai (India)) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Hiring process is methodical and clinical, very efficient; initially a consultant shall get in touch if its a senior profile; the first few meets are held at a neutral venue (a 5 -7 STAR Hotel), first someone from HR and then the immediate superior followed up by the HR head and then the CEO at the very last. Questions are curt, precise and targeted aimed at gauging how your psyche and area of specialisation shall best gel with the business in general and function in particular.
