    Consultant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Chen (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Online aptitude test containing general quantitative and verbal questions along with a lot of questions from Cloud Computing and Java.

    Technical Round: Mostly Data Structures and Algorithms, OOPS concepts.

    HR Round: Didn't quallify.

    The interview was a horrible experience. I was the last candidate to be interviewed and waited the entire day for the same. The interviewer was juggling b/w two rooms and making the candidates wait for what seemed like ages. I was asked just one question and answered it as the very first example from the book "Head First into Design Patterns". According to me it was excellent, but i was let go immediately after.

    Consultant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Vellore (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    1st round aptitude+technical mcq 105 mins 110 ques (+1,-2) technical ques were from dbms,c++,java, hadoop ,cloud. Level of questions were very tough involves lot of luck to clear the 1st round.
    Their ppt was like as if they were giving 10 lpa or job is very challenging instead they have very less projects and they have hired lots of freshers which are on the bench(around 200).
     2nd round case study based gd (desert situation- prioritize 15 items,nuclear war situation- eliminate 5 people)selected 5 or 6 from 12 in every group.
    3rd round was technical interview- project and resume based . unorganized , only 2 people were there for interviewing more than 40 candidates.
    4th round - hr.(good speaking skills are tested)
    Avoid it if you have better chances , you will end up wasting your time in company with lesser pay and also not developing much skills ,so after 2 years switching to different company is also difficult.
