    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Epsilon (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    I had applied for on-campus placement via the placement cell from my college.

    We first had an online aptitude test; general aptitude questions based on verbal, logical and analytical skills. [No coding questions were asked].

    Then we had a GD [General Discussion round]. The topic given was "E-Commerce trend in the market for online shopping - A good thing or a bad thing?"

    Then we had the technical interview where I was asked questions based on my projects mentioned in my resume followed by some general HR questions.

    Finally I was called in for the HR round which was basic HR questions like "Tell me about yourself, Why this company, Your hobbies, Strengths/Weaknesses, etc"

    Basically if you clear Technical round, you are most likely guaranteed a job.

    Senior Quality Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Epsilon (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    A bunch of people with experience span from 6month -9 years were called for interview process for same position.
    After a written test which was more or less like the exact work which we were supposed to do once got hired.
    Candidates were called for 1st round of interview in which intervieqer itself said there is no technical work, no Automation, No SQL, No SOAP UI is required.
    After this a managerial round was there. That manager, who btw looked very arrogant, was grilling each and every candidate thoroughly asking deep questiona related to Automation, SQL, SOAP, Supply chain and what not.

    I spent 7 hours on a work day there to listen that 'you are through for next round but as this is Friday and many employees including Sr. Manager is not there.'

    Now I don't get if it was a simplest testing job to compare 2 docs/images and find mistakes in it just like we used to play game in our childhood(first interviewer said it himself), why call senior test engineers for this post, even after confirming in screening process that you are experienced automation testing process. This is so unprofessional to call working professionals on a weekday and keep them siting in your office for 5-6 hours and never call back even if candidate is through to next round. Very UNPROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE!!!

    Technical Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Epsilon (Bengaluru (India)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First my resume was uploaded to Epsilon for post of Technical manager post by a consultancy and after continuous follow up from my consultancy , a telephonic round was scheduled by the HR ( though I was told by the HR that she will send an scheduled interview mail , I received no mails ) .

    The first round of technical interview went fine and the next day I got a call from the HR saying the feedback is positive and we can have the second round of telephonic interview ( again for this round too I was told by her that a mail would be sent but I received no mails ) .

    The second round did happened though where i was asked questions which was like a cake walk . I again got a call from the same HR saying that she can schedule the F2F and would be sending a mail . I did not receive any mail and hence i did not go to the office , I was called upon by the HR to check on my where about and i did say that I haven't received any mail to which the HR replied saying , she has sent the interview schedule mail and when I queried to which email ID she has sent , to my horror the mail ID she told didn't belong to me too .

    Any ways the F2F was still scheduled and i reached the venue ( which happens to be 24 Kms from my home -driving my self that much distance in Bangalore during busy office hours is like driving through hell but still I made it half an hour prior to the schedule ) .

    After waiting for around half an hour , the HR comes and says the HR who was to take my HR interview will be on leave today and that I will have to go through another round with a Director/ Senior Director ) after half an hour more . I was OK to wait and did meet the person after waiting for another half an hour and the interview again was like a cake walk . Questions were basically like what have you done in Offshore and onshore and what methodologies etc . After the interview I asked him whether I should wait or leave to which he replied saying , he does not know my next round and he will let the HR know about it . The HR came and escorted me out of the building and said that she will get the feedback and the HR interview can be done on phone . I personally felt that even the interview I went through could have been done on phone .

    Any ways after that day I didn't get any communication and did get a mail after 4 days saying that they cannot go ahead with my candidature and they have difficulty in choosing among capable candidates .

    To mention , I had taken some time off from my current organisation where I also lead a team of 25 people to go through this interview which happened on a week day . I also work for a Fortune 500 company and one of the largest consulting firms in the world with an industry experience close to 9 years . So just couldn't understand the word " difficulty in choosing among capable candidates " .

    Any how I understand that Epsilon is like a start up and that too they are starting off fresh in Bangalore but they seem to lack clarity in their recruitment and I feel I did waste a lot of time on them .
    Will advice all to think twice before even going through the interview process of theirs
