    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at iGATE.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume through the University's On-Campus Recruiting process. I was selected for an interview and did two 30 minute 1-on-1 interviews: first with the HR rep, then second with business manager. They asked mainly behavioral type questions (i.e. "Tell me about a time when..."). Since it's basically a sales role that I was applying for, it seemed as though the interviewers were trying to gauge my personality and how engaging I was.

    A few weeks after the interview, the candidates were told that iGate suspended all hiring for the rest of the year due to the new CEO's hiring freeze.

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at iGATE in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process is simple as long as the expected salary is lower than the market. Interviews are usually done by non-technical staff who needs to a number from 1 to 10 in the list of skills. The next step is actually with the client and the complexity will depend on the position and the salary negotiated. But overall I think this is a right way to filter out people before submitting to a client.

    Interview Questions
    • Not much I can think off except answering a technical question to a non technical person.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was not very difficult, they were ok if your demands make sense. But all that depends on the client that they are working on.

    Senior Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at iGATE.

    Interview Details

    This was the worst interview experience I had in my entire career. Someone from the HR called me up one day and scheduled the technical interviw (telephonic) which was taken by a technical lead . It went on for 30 mins and was good. Then there was no response from them for 10 days and after that I got a feedbac that I was sel;ected in the 1st round. After that they scheduled another round of managerial cum technical round, through skype and I was selected in that one as well. Then they scheduled an Hr round , but the HR never called me and they told that they will be scheduling another round shortly. Then there was no response from them for 2 weeks and today a HR finally called me and told that the requirement they were interviewing me for has been put on hold it seems !! How can they interview a person for 2-3 rounds when the requirement itself is not confirmed !! This is simply ridiculous and I am really disgusted with their approach. They dont even have the minimum proffessionalism in them.
