    Lead .NET Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  South Jordan, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Jordan, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Syntel in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview took place after hours while the Project Manager was driving home. Between the noise of the traffic, the poor cell quality, and the accent of the interviewer the conversation become unintelligible after about ten minutes. I tried to listen and could only pick up about 30% of what he was saying. As I attempted to explain the dilemma he took offense that I was picking on his accent. Rather than reschedule at a time more convenient for both of us he said (I presume since I couldn't really understand him) "good-bye" and hung up.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Syntel in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was conducted by Yahoo Messenger only. I was offered the job, only the offer letter came in my Spam folder and I was told I was going to be paid $25 an hour. Too good to be true. Glassdoor.com sent me an email stating that the job may be illegitimate, but gave me the wrong company name. When I copied the original email from glassdoor, I never received another word from glassdoor.com.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Syntel in March 2012.

    Very clear process, and swift paced. starts with HR round, followed by Engagement Manager round, then client interview. HR takes care of most of the operational stuff. Salary negotiation is the key, you have to ensure you get what you want before signing the contract or offer letter.
