I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Virtusa.
Met during a career conference and was invited for a phone interview about two weeks later. The interview consisted of a panel of 3 people who were all very professional and friendly. The interview went great and I was contacted by the company a week later to schedule a face to face interview in New York. I was given a list of dates to choose from but they all fell on dates that conflicted with my schedule for finals. I was not able to negotiate a change in my finals schedule so I asked if I could come to New York after my finals. I was given a new set of dates to pick out and I sent in an email confirming my choice. Now here is where I'll admit I made a mistake that any recent graduate should take note of. Most companies will confirm that you are scheduled for a time and place to meet at. In the original set of dates I was given the company's address and the time slots for the interview. So after sending my last email I simply assumed the same time slots and address were the same for this new date as they were for the last set of dates so I added them to my schedule. What I did not get was a time. So the night before the interview I decided to double check the address and time with the original email and I noted that I did not receive an emailed confirmation of an appointment I typically received for interviews in the past. So I decided the email my contact in the company to confirm everything and to tell them I was excited to come in. Unfortunately just as I arrived at company's office I received an email stating that in fact none of the managers were in the office that day and that they were sorry for the inconvenience. I was pretty bummed by this but realized that mistakes do happen and I should take it in stride. So I replied that I understood and stated that I was at the address at that time and if I could possibly come and see the office and also if we could reschedule. After this point I did not receive any more replies from the company and after emailing my contact one more time decided that I was probably better off looking at other opportunities. I can understand that at times in a large company some scheduling errors can occur but simply not responding to my emails afterwards is completely unacceptable. I can accept and sympathize with scheduling mistakes but the fact that I wasn't given any information about rescheduling or a reimbursement for the transportation costs of coming into New York, gives me a great deal of pause about recommending this company to others.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Virtusa (New York, NY) in September 2012.
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.

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
