    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Impetus Technologies (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Met with several recruiters then a VP. Impetus is infatuated with Skype. All interviews were on Skype, I asked if it could be a phone call and that was met with much resistance. They wanted to fly me to CA for full day face to face meetings, throughout entire process they refused to share compensation details. Was told several times that it was competitive and not to worry about it. After 3 attempts to get comp details with no success and more importantly, after speaking live with a former Impetus sales rep, I cancelled the CA meeting.

    Entry Level Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Impetus Technologies (San Jose, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter. Went in for walk-in drive. There were total three interviews. The first interview was fine, mostly java concepts in-depth. The interview was really long and tiring. Then came the second round, I was stunned at the attitude the senior members of the company were showing. Two members were present during Through out the interview, they were not really interested in knowing what I knew, but tried to emphasize on what I didn't know, they seem to be mocking me which made me feel even more nervous. I would say that these guys should understand that they are not hiring for a company like Google and learn to be down-to-earth if not nice to their interviewees. The HR, however, was really sweet and calm.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Impetus Technologies.

    Interview

    Interview call, and 3 rounds of interviews and offer, all happened in one week itself. Fast and interesting. I liked the fact that they mean business, respect others time and see that the candidate is not feeling lost at any point of time. Had interactions with senior leaders of the company and that helps know where the company is heading to.

    Business Development Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Impetus Technologies (Indore (India)).

    Interview

    I got a call from the HR of Impetus, and they initiated the interview process.
    When i reached the office on time they had given, they made me wait for more than 40 minutes citing one reason or another.
    Finally, when I was ready to walk out from that place, they called me in for the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview process was very long and grueling.
      It went on for more than 1:30 hour, and the interviewer covered every thing from the which was required for the job and which were not.
      It was a good and healthy discussion.
      But, my bone of contrantion is that they never followed up after the interview and I was asked to hang in there because they were looking for more suitable candidates and after 7 days when HR came to know about me joining at different place, he called me and offered me the job because they have not found someone more suitable which I personally think is not at all professional because you should make candidate aware of his position immediately rather than keeping them in dilemma and without any closure
