I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Syntel in February 2012.

Interview Details – First an online intelligence test was organised in our college. Then the qualified students went to a certain college on a given day for the next rounds. They started with a presentation of their company. Then students were divided into groups of 9/10 for the Group Discussion round. The students qualifying that round entered a one-on-one technical interview round. And finally the HR interview round took place the same day.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Syntel in January 2011.

Interview Details – There were a written test organized by Syntel in Our College, but there were no representative from Syntel, However the were online.
Written test were from English an Reasoning mostly and very little questions from Quant.
Selected students went for the interview process as a pool campus interview.
In the interview there were three rounds starting from Group Discussion then Technical Interview and finally Personal Interview or HR Interview.
Every round was elimination round.
In the Group Discussion they took a group of 10 to discuss a familiar topic. It was quite easy, but only one judge were there to select students for the next round.
Selected students gone through Tecnical interview followed b HR Interview if selected.
Interviewer were experienced, so atleast I am satisfied with Interview process.

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Syntel in January 2011.

Interview Details – Syntel's hiring process for freshers was a little soft as far as i'm concerned. While it was definitely more organized than any other hiring process I've seen, communication was almost nill and I was made to wait for the test and interview results for days.

It started off with an online test of aptitude and skill. the shortlisted candidates were required to attend a personal interview on a specific date.

The interview was a technical cum behavioral interview where a panel of two people assessed the candidate. It was not very grueling and the panelists were welcoming.
