    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Steria (New Delhi (India)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    It was in-campus drive. Minimum eligibility was 70% in 10th and 12th,60% in college and no active backlog. 1st round was written test, Time duration was 50 minutes and 50 MCQ were asked from- SQL(many questions) networking,software engineering,microprocessor,computer architecture(few questions), logical and reasoning(many questions). Not even a single question on C/C++/or any programming language. Questions was easy ,level of paper was not difficult. I was not prepared for computer architecture and microprocessor but still cleared the exam.Basic knowledge of SQL will be very helpful. After that presentation from the company,she clearly told us what qualities they are looking in us, so keep your ears open during presentation. Then result came out and they didn't select so many students. Immediately after announcing result they stared the group discussion. Group of 10 students was created and our topic was "Arvind kejriwal and his party". It was very healthy discussion and 8 out 10 people were speaking.In the end she asked for everyone's conclusion one by one. 3 got selected and one who didn't utter even a single word during the discussion but spoke during conclusion was one of them(His point in conclusion was bad). Me and my friend was rejected so we approached to HR and asked feedback, what she was looking for. She said Grammar and clarity in speech are two things she is looking for.

    An initial telephone interview, then a face2face interview with hiring manager and HR. Pretty basic questions, nothing tasking. It was more a chat than an interview.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Steria in September 2011.

    Interview

    Recruitment Consultant was very friendly and kept me up to date with what was going on regularly, even if it was just a quick call to say he was waiting for information. Agreed on an initial interview date, however one of the interviewers cancelled it and it was rescheduled 2 weeks later, no reason given for this. I arrived at the Hemel Hempstead office, there was no parking at all - ended up parking on the road, something to bear in mind if you drive in. Was kept waiting 15 minutes past my agreed interview time, reception area was nice enough though so not a big deal. Overall atmosphere of the office was very strange, everyone looked miserable and quiet. One of my interviewers commented to me that everyone was lazy and never worked. Not the best first impression. Interview was competency based, seemed very badly structured though, interviewers seemed more interested in getting me in and out than hearing what I had to say. Three interviewers, one of the interviewers kept looking around the room, not interested at all - extremely unprofessional behaviour. The only time he did speak up was when he asked if I'd heard anything bad about the company. The other two seemed okay and made notes and asked a lot of competency related questions. Whole interview was over in around 25 minutes, I asked a number of questions about the company, all were answered somewhat negatively, almost got the impression they were trying to put me off! As I left one of the interviewers commented on how lazy and useless the people in the office were as we walked through. I'd made my mind up at this point I wouldn't accept an offer if it came my way, absolutely no respect for employees in my opinion. Was assured I would be given an answer within 2 days. To this date, I've never had a call or email from them. I even tried speaking to the Recruitment Consultant and he doesn't return my calls. In my opinion I would be very careful making a decision to interview here.
