Interview Details –
Received an email from a recruiter about their opening and responded. They scheduled an in-person interview at their Manhattan office. When I got there, they'd lost my resume and couldn't photocopy it or get another from their system, so I had to reeexplain my credentials to everyone I spoke with aside the first man I spoke with.
At their office, the first person I spoke conducted a basic HR interview, asking me how I'd heard of them, what I knew about them, my background, etc. He told me I was being considered for a job in Albany. Next person was another HR interviewer, who told me a bit more about the company and position. Since for some reason they didn't have my resume, which I emailed to them, on record, I had to tell this interviewer all about my background. He said he didn't know where the position I was being considered for was located, but that he thought it might be in Boston.
Next was a technical interview on Java and general OOP concepts, conducted over a conference phone. This interviewer had an incredibly thick accent and coupled with the poor connection, made him very difficult to understand. I didn't feel like I did so well on it. Next I spoke with another tech person, face-to-face, who asked me some more OOP questions.
Afterwards I spoke with the first interviewer again. He told me that I passed, and that there was going to be 3-4 weeks (he wasn't specific) of training in India before the position started. As I don't have a passport, I asked him about the details. He wasn't very forthcoming about things like housing, how long I'd be expected to stay with them in return for the training, just insisting that they'd take care of it and it'd be free. When I told him that I'd sleep on it, he got very pushy and wanted an answer immediately, telling me he needed to know right then and there.
This seemed kind of shady (their story on where the position was located and didn't give me any details on the contract and details about the training),
Overall, it just felt "off" to me. It was very disorganized A couple of the interviewers just left the room for about 10 minutes at a time to take phone calls or something.
Interview Question – What is a finally statement used for in Java? View Answer
Reason for Declining – The whole thing seemed shady to me. I told them that I'd sleep on it before making a decision and they seemed unhappy with that, wanting me to give them a yes or no immediately. As well, the salary was around

Interview Details –
The interview process was similar to other consulting companies such as Deloitte, PWC or Infosys. They first had a phone interview in which I was asked a plethora of questions from many different subject. After which came an in person interview in Westborough, MA. The final interview was in NYC.
There was 3 case study questions as well, nothing too difficult for case study, but it wasn't the average interview. Dress nice, and be polite.
Had an excellent process, and everyone was very nice. I was also compensated for all of my expenses for interview travel.
(The interview was much more difficult than my Deloitte interview)

Interview Details – Interviewees beware! After the HR representative in India reached out to me about a phone interview with the hiring manager of a marketing position in Mass., I declined it because I didn't see a fit only to be told that the open position's title had changed to represent a more senior role. Although this was strange to me, I thought that taking a phone interview after all would not be any skin off of my back. Needless to say I was irate when the hiring manager told me at the start of the call that the title had not changed as well as he was unsure of why the HR representative had told me this. I emailed a gracious 'thanks, but no thanks' email to the HR representative. Around three weeks later the same HR representative called me to tell me that the open position's role and responsibilities had changed. My request for an email with the revised job description was denied - I had meet with the hiring manager because he wanted to tell me all about the different position in person. My theory is that the HR representative manipulated me to go in to the office thinking I would overlook that they are a bunch of lying, used car salesmen and would be so charmed with Virtusa that I would want to join them. Not only did the position have the exact same role and responsibilities as a few weeks before, the hiring manager defended the shady HR representative by finding a nonsense way around his lie. I should have charged Virtusa for the two hour's worth of gas it took to travel to and from their office.
