    UI Manager Interview

    Interview

    I was asked to come for a whole day interview from 10:30-4 PM. There were 6 rounds. When I reached the place the first interviewer was ready to take the interview. But once the first round was over I was made to sit in the small empty room for over 30 minutes without any updates or any one showing up in the interview room . Each interviewer would come after a gap of 40-45 minutes. With this kind of delay just 5 rounds took till 5 PM. After that I was asked to go to different location nearly 5-6 km away from the original location for the last round. It was 8PM when the interview concluded. After lunch hour there was no inquiry to see if I needed something like say food or tea. I found the whole HR process very chaotic and unorganized. I had to ask myself after 2 weeks for a result of the interview. They did not see it fit to let me know themselves. I did not get an offer as there was a skill + domain mismatch which was understandable but that should be communicated without the candidate having to prod HR for answers.

    However on the positive side the interviewing panel was very knowledgeable and each a master in their field. The interview covered various aspects, technical skills, UI skills, management skills etc. There was no absurd questions or rat holing of issues. Just the interview part was quite professional.

    Senior Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Flipkart (Palo Alto, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    1-hour research based presentation followed by discussions with 5 members. All members are knowledgeable. Overall great experience with the process. However, the HR coordinator is extremely inefficient and unprofessional. It took her more than a month to provide initial feedback and 15 more days after that to release an offer. I was severely displeased by the HR's tactics, and ultimately decided to pass their offer as I had other offers pending. BTW, if you say you have other offers pending, then the HR would ask you this question "Please provide proof as this is Flipkart's policy".

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Flipkart (New York, NY) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Interview process was fast, started with a telephonic and immediately following up with on site process. The interviewers were very passionate and skilled to asked specific questions that they were or tryinfg to cover. Started with standard what you do questioning, the second was on people management where the interview was stuck on one agenda throughout. Then there were design and problem solving rounds followed by HR and Product. The questions were quite easy to understand but at times were explaining ambiguous situations, while not very clear of the question themselves for example the problem solving round was suppose to be HLD but ended in covering everything including LLD as well. Interview was a mix bag. Never heard back from HR on the outcome.
