    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Birlasoft (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through a staffing agency. It took 1 month for the response from Birlasoft. Another 1 month to get through the interview.

    I was confirmed that I am selected. Also received the offer letter but later on the staffing company informed that the position for which they were going to hire me is open again. They are NOT going to process work Visa even if they agreed before. Nothing was formally communicated from Birlasoft people. Also no response to emails & phone. I rejected their offer,

    HR & Visa department are the worst. No work ethics at all. The HR has to learn how to speak, very poor communication skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Birlasoft in June 2014.

    Interview

    HR called and scheduled an 1st round interview. HR agreed with my expected package which was good part. After 1st round interview, HR told you have cleared and given heads up for 2nd round interview with client. But did not got further communication on 2nd round interview schedules. I will have to give bad ratings for not committing on what they said.
    Interviewer during 1st round was good in asking technical question. He was going much deeper on my knowledge. But I felt he was not aware of new versions and its functionality of product.

    Interview Questions

    • GIven me a two option for a specific design and asked me to identify the most approachable design.   Answer Question

    Senior Technical Writer - Fulltime Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Birlasoft (Stamford, CT) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I was interviewed 2/25/2014 for this position by Rani Irudaya, a Biralasoft team member. Based on her responses during the interview, I did well. She told me my next interview would be with the hiring manager for the project I would be attached to. She stated she would contact my recruiter to schedule this interview. However, the next interview never happened. When I contacted the recruiter for an update, he promised a investigation but then never contacted me again.

    Lack of follow up indicates a poorly defined HR hiring process. Interviewed candidates that are unsuccessful deserve a follow up statement like, "Sorry X, we have moved forward with another candidate." OR "Sorry, X, we closed the position unfulfilled." The lack of a follow up reflects poorly on company HR and may indicate problems dealing with employees.

    Interview Questions

    • I was told I was being interviewed for a fulltime position. However, when I inquired about the initial project I was to work on, I was told that once the project was completed my contribution would be evaluated and based on that performance review I may not be retained.

      This explanation is the definition of a contract-to-hire position not a fulltime position because, when a company hires a fulltime candidate, it is because they have high confidence the future employee will perform acceptably. If confidence is not high, they hire on a contract-to-hire basis. HR didn't seem to be able to make this distinction. This reflects poorly on the company.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interview process took 2-3 weeks , the hiring manager had 2 rounds of interviews one on phone , one in person. I was asked to travel coast to coast for the interview and the process was managed alright. Beware the final control and decision making lies with the CEO .

    If the CEO likes you, you are hired, if not no matter what qualifications you hold and no matter if the hiring manager is happy with your experience , you are not recruited!!
    Basically spent 2 traveling coast to coast and 3 hours of different telephonic interviews to be rejected.

    Would suggest to have all resumes screened by the CEO to save everyone's time and money. Yes my money too , as I'm waiting for my travel expenses to be reimbursed , and its been 2 months waiting!!!!!!

    Interview Questions

    • The CEO asking me the number of years of experience and experience in manufacturing industry.   1 Answer
