Automation Test Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EPAM (Pune (India)) in November 2017.

Interview

I got a call from EPAM recruiter for SDET position on 26 Oct. First round was done by HR, basic discussion, job location, salary discussion etc. 1st round is more of screening round.
They have arranged the F2F round of interview on 28 Oct. Two technical round of interview around 1.5 hr each. Questions are mostly on core Java, selenium, API automation, project framework etc. Interview questions are average. On next week, I got a call from HR for conducting my manager round of interview for general discussion and project information. 2nd Nov, I had discussion with Manager regarding project, experience, roles, responsibility etc. Everything went well. But after manager round, no updates from HR for 3-4 weeks. I have email the HR regarding update, but no reply. :( They do not pick up the call :(. Finally after 3 weeks they inform me that they are not going to offer me, as my expected CTC is high.
I have wasted 3 weeks for them. Total waste of time. Not suggesting to appear for EPAM.

    Test Automation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Zürich (Switzerland)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EPAM (Zürich (Switzerland)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    They have a pretty simple interview plan:
    1st one is a simple and nice discussion with HR
    2nd one is a technical related call with EPAM - team leader/manager
    3rd one: you`re invited on-site for a "motivational interview"

    I didn't like the 2nd one as a lot of questions were not having sense as you`ll see below. Or they were been trick questions. Who knows... And he was in such a rush that I felt always runned down by someone... His hungarian-english vocabulary was also a bit weird as you`ll see below in the interview questions. Anyway, next week I had (ironically), another interview with another big consultancy for the SAME client on the SAME project, and it was such a nice and relaxing interview... This one with EPAM, it felt bad, because he was just reading the questions from a piece of paper and checked the boxes with my answers...

    Test Automation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Zürich (Switzerland)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EPAM (Zürich (Switzerland)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    There are four interviews:
    · One non-Technical call with HR: nice guy, but needs to work at his English grammar because he does a lot of mistakes
    · One Technical related Skype call with EPAM Systems: A bit dissapointed - never had such a "robotic" interview. He never asked me about my past experience, jumped directly to the questions and felt like a Q&A robot check-list.
    e.g. Have you done that? No, ok. Next, next, and so on. He was just checkin' the answers on a sheet of paper and there were 40-50 questions so around one hour and a half. What was a bit annoying is that I felt him always in a rush, so I felt that I had to rush with my answers.
    And I also felt lied because at the end he said: "Ok, we'll see where you fit and come back to you in about 1-2 weeks". After that, after only three hours after the interview, the HR guy sent me a rejection e-mail. It's clear that the tehnical recruitor knew that I'm not a fit, but why lie to me that it'd last 1-2 weeks?
    · One Call with the client
    · One Motivational call
