    Pros

    Good company culture, people are friendly, lots of company events, dynamic environment, personal training budget
    Communication is easy and direct, benefits are not stellar but are ok.

    Cons

    Salary is not as average for a similar position elsewhere, using personal training budget means you have to stay with the company for certain amount of time or pay it back.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the salaries

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Hatstand.

    Interview

    1-1 interview on campus at university, 1 online technical test and last telephony interview. 1-2 week gap in every round.
    1-1 interview was for 60-70 minutes.
    Online test was of around 60 min and had 50 questions.
    Telephony interview was for 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • 1-1 interview was mostly behavioral. Discussed about my work experience, education and management skills.
      Technical test was easy and the last telephony interview with the manager was behavioral, mainly asking why do you want to join Hatshand?, Why financial industry?, why this job? etc..
      HR i.e Sarah is great and responded very well till the interview process completed

      I cleared all the interviews. They were dealing with a client for some positions and kept me without offer till the deal ends and unfortunately it didn't went into their pocket. They were having other projects and told me to wait till they get another position available but I never got any contact from them even after sending number of follow up mails however their website lists the same position in the job openings list.

       To cut in short: Don't entirely rely on them. If you are getting other descent options better select those.
