    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.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Impetus Technologies (Noida (India)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was quite quick. The HR team(what they call as Talent Acquisition team) call me a day before when the written aptitude+technical was scheduled. They informed me next day that I had been shortlisted for round2, which is in a day's time. I was also able to clear the second round which was purely technical, includes question form Data Structure,DBMS,Algorithms,OS and the most important college project. The interviewer questioned me for about good 25-30 minutes, but if you have done your project sincerely, it will be a cake walk. I got stuck in round3 which was a video conferencing interview.
