    Consultant - Software Developer Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Delhi (India)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (New Delhi (India)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I attended an off-campus drive recently. As it was an off-campus so the response was equally good, and the company officials were also overwhelmed with such response. The procedure included a written test, group discussion then a couple of personal interviews.
    Round-1 Written Round
    It included two tests - technical and verbal. Each test consisted of 50 questions, with 50 minutes for the verbal and 1 hour for the technical test.
    The questions in verbal were very easy - like What is the full form of CV? yes, you read it correct! and etc..
    The level of technical test was good. It included questions from C, C++, Java, DBMS, Cloud Computing, Big Data.
    Out of 800 applicants - only 70 people were shortlisted for the next round.

    Round-2 Group Discussion
    Well 7 groups were formed of 10 candidates each and there were given a topic on the spot for discussion for about 12-15 minutes.
    The topic was - How India is the land of great job opportunities as compared to various other countries?
    The other topic, I could hear was - Salman Khan vs ShahRukh Khan.

    A tip - before attending the drive, kindly acquire a piece of information about the number of offers the company is wishing to make. This will help you a lot in your preparation, as you'll prepare for clearing the rounds even if the cut-off goes high.

    All the best!

    Interview

    I met them on campus for a Career Fair. I, then, went to my university career website and applied and was asked for an interview. The process was not too difficult. They held one-on-one interviews on campus. Not many questions were asked, mostly just asking about my resume.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (London, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview lasting about 30 mins with Nainik, a consultant who became very disinterested in the conversation after learning that I would not be available to work for weeks at a time away from home at very little notice. Terrible attitude and not a company I would wish to work for.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Atlanta, GA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    This was one of the easiest interviews I have ever participated in. Perhaps deceptively easy. I had a one on one interview on campus and was then invited back to the regional office for the second and final round of interviews. There was a breakfast Q & A with several of the JR consultants and then the rest of the interviews started. Each person was assigned to an office and that was their "home base" and three senior managers and one VP rotated into the office to interview. Four separate 30 minute interviews which were all very conversational. There were hardly any "traditional" interview questions, but it depended on the style of the interviewer. After all the interviews three interviewees were taken out to lunch by one of the JR consultants from the Q & A session.
