Business Development Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tarantula in December 2011.
Interview Details – My experience with Tarantula has been different from the ones I have just seen here. First thing about this company is that they have a very open culture yet they're very selective in hiring people.
My initial interview hapenned via an online video conference which was a relief because I wanted to qualify the opportunity. Importantly, post interview, HR kept me posted on management's feedback, which is lso unique these days. I had couple of rounds of discussion with HR, which took sometime but I was in no hurry becasue the last thing you want to do is hurry in finalizing jobs these days.
The face-to-face interview hapenned in Gurgaon, where I met the senior management representatives and discussed many relevant things including company's vision. I was offered the job finally and I was pretty happy about the way the HR went about it.
Tarantula looks for innovative, self-driven and focused candidates. I think that's the reason their selection ratio is less, you can see the quality of people once you come through. Overall, I recommend Tarantula's interview process becuase it intends to bring the right fit between the employees & company, rather than wasting both's time & energy.
Interview Question – Public relations strategy for a SaaS based software company Answer Question
Negotiation Details – If you are the right fit, money will not be a problem.
Very Easy Interview
Software Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Tarantula in March 2012.
Interview Details – Hi readers,
I am going with a detailed review of my interview at tarantula.… This may help other members who are preparing for tarantula.
One find day, no no… one sad day, I was in office and seriously thinking about a meeting with client. My mobile disturbed my thoughts by ringing loudly displaying an unknown local number. I attended the call and it was from tarantula for software engineer position. A HR lady asked some common questions then scheduled a 1:1 interview on the next day at 11 am. I was surprised about this company because of the location AMEEPRET. I already have an offer at another company. Still I want to give a try sincerely. Before taking the 1:1 interview I decided to know more about this company. When I was google for company profile and other info, I noticed a negative interview review here but not considered because it was old.
It wasn’t easy for me to reach this office because no one aware of the address. Finally I was in tarantula at 11:10 am. I informed security person about my interview schedule. That guy offered me a seat and informed HR. After 50 min of long wait a HR called me in. She was HORRIBLE and she doesn’t know how to behave with a candidate, her body language, dress sense, behaviour, the way of taking, and the questions she shooted... what else, every thing was unprofessional. I was never faced such a foolish interview. She was trying some technical questions which were LAUGHABLE. I asked her about the opportunities and carrier growth in the company. The answer was a real BOMBER. “All these details will explain clearly after your joining formalities” she replied.
Finally I decided to quit from there because it was such a waste of time. I felt they were just doing some time pass on the name of interview. No procedures, no professionalism, no respect, no time sense, only NONSENCE. I must also add, the security guy is better than the HR. I believe, the two positive reviews posted here are by the company not by the employees. Because they both were posted on the same date 6th March mostly by HR or PRO. Also, Not sure why these guys posted the photos.
My advice to all, do not consider this company by going through the content of the company website. All the content of this website copied from various websites.
Interview Question – All the questions were very dumb and foolish Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Support Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Tarantula in August 2011.
Interview Details – The HR person contacted me, the lady was polite, she had asked me some general questions. She was more interested in the gaps that I had in my career. At the end of the interview, she arranged for a 1:1 personal interview. The interview is for some support job.
I went the next day. The company is located in a small pigeon hole called Adithya Inn. It was difficult for me to locate it as no body knows about it. But some how I managed to locate it and went inside. I signed in the visitors register and waited for my turn. First a lady came and after looking at me, she had sent a junior HR colleague to interview me. That manner-less fool, didn't know how to talk, and he kept asking me the same questions that were asked the previous day. The way he spoke is very irritating and I had a feeling that he was just passing time. During the interview, he got a personal call, and went out for half-an hour. After that he came back, and wound up the interview in 2 seconds. He informed me that I would be called later.
What a waste of time, money by attending interviews at such unprofessional companies .My advice do not go by the content displayed on the website.
