    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kotak Mahindra Old Mutual Life Insurance (Kolkata (India)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Not satisfied.
    1:1 interview .
    very unprofessional walk-in- process.
    They asked me to say something about myself but Interviewer does not bother whether you know anything or not all they want to know. " can you do the job or not?" they describes the job in detail but not in a direct way so sometimes one can get misguided by this.

    Accounts Operations Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kotak Mahindra Old Mutual Life Insurance (Mumbai (India)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional walk-in interview process.

    Vacancy was posted on Naukri.com & candidates were asked to attend interviews between 11am to 5pm at Infinity park, Goregaon(E), Mumbai office of Kotal Life Insurance, carrying only resume.

    At the venue:-

    Security at reception noted down the names of the candidate. Post which, there was no briefing about the process nor any application forms to be filled. Candidates were just made to sit outside with no proper facilities to accommodate large no. of people.

    Candidates were called inside the office in batches of 10-12 nos. on first-come-first basis - this activity started at around 12.00..12.30pm (pls note candidates who arrived on-time were waiting for 1 hour already with no touch-base with HR). Due to this delay, pile of candidates were pouring in & waiting outside.

    No facility of drinking water, no adequate place to accommodate walk-in candidates, no place to sit large no. of people which made the candidates stand for hours, No facility or directions for washrooms.

    Surprisingly, candidates who were called inside in batches, again had to sit in a waiting area inside the office; still having no idea about the interview process.

    Kotak employees including HR were happily taking lunch and tea breaks, but no-one bothered to brief the candidates whether they can have lunch during office lunch time.

    At around 4pm, candidates who had arrived between 12-1pm were still unattended, waiting outside, still with no idea about the interview process. I could then see some of the candidates leaving the premises.

    HR didn't even bothered to talk to the candidates, such was the bad state of the interview process.

    If such was the first experience of the candidates who attended Kotak interview on 2nd June 2016, i can't imagine how this company or the HR must be valuing & treating its employees.

    Consultant Trainer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kotak Mahindra Old Mutual Life Insurance (Kolkata (India)).

    Interview

    Fake Job interview... They actually want you to become their agents. Cheating with candidates. I got an interview call for joining the company as a consultant trainer...when I went their they explained me the profile of a trainer and told me that I will get a fixed salary. Also I have to clear an exam of IRDA to join the company. Exam fees they charged RS 1000. Later when they called me for documentation... They revealed that I have to act as an agent and sell policies and my salary will be variable depending on policies I sell. If I disagree they earn the 1000 rs I had paid for the exam.

    Assistant Manager Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kotak Mahindra Old Mutual Life Insurance.

    Interview

    I went through a walk-in. First round was of general HR to get to know the candidate. This HR mixed up my application for Senior manager position instead of assistant manager. The second round was taken assuming my candidature for senior manager position which required 2-3 years' of experience which I didn't have and hence didn't qualify. Then upon confronting about the mix-up, I was told ' This is it, you may leave'. The HR's seemed absolutely dazed and completely irresponsible with no experience of handling candidates for interviews at all. They themselves didn't have communication skills.
