Very Easy Interview

Systems Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Delhi (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in January 2010.

Interview Details – 2 rounds of interview. The technical round had questions that should be asked of a fresher. No proper recruitment team. HR is not someone with patience. Was after my life for the documents even after explaining the delay. Joined becuse had to change and this was the only decent offer in hand. The manager turned out to be good though fortunately. Had no chance of visiting their office to get a feel of the environment. Negativity towards HR increased more after joining :)

Interview Question – Questions that should be asked to a fresher were asked to a person with 4 years of exp.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Stick to your stand. Anways they are not offering good annual raise so ask more.
