    Research Analyst Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MavenMagnet (Mumbai (India)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Extremely appalled to by the way the interview was conducted. Being a fresher,I can say it was a nightmare come to life. It is truly experiences such as this, that makes one undermine themselves.

    Ms. Ritu (the co-founder) was extremely cold and stoic. If you are (sadly) interviewed by her, be prepared for the following:
     1. No cordial greetings/ courtesy to offer water
    2. Straight poker face throughout the interview (As if you were being interrogated for a crime)
    3. Unnecessary probing of same questions
    4. Getting your own CV torn and folded in front of you, to make you do a task/presentation on the back blank side of it,
    5. Getting absolutely no feedback (including non-verbal) what so ever once you do the task.

    If I get a call back for this, I would definitely reject because if the firm founder is dismissive and distant about her staff, there is absolute no motivation in taking something so emotionally stressful as a job experience.

    Interview

    Intolerable. Employees around were in constant fear. the owner has a constant weird stare at you making you very uncomfortable. Be prepared for a lot of silence from the owner as she herself doesn't care to listen to you

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MavenMagnet (Mumbai (India)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    PRO-TIP- don't go, really. Just save yourself from going to andheri and be humiliated, rather find a better company. You'll thank me :)
    I was contacted through email to schedule a telephonic interview, and interviewer were half an hour late. No apologies for that.
    She asked questions about my experience and education and expected CTC.
    Few days later got an email to schedule and interview at their Mumbai office 20 days later.
    Went for the interview, the CEO/ founder Tina or whatever her name is was no where to be seen. She was running late. BY an HOUR. MIDDLE OF THE DAY.

    I was interviewed for formality by one of her associates, nice guy. then she showed up.
    No introducing herself, no apologizing for the wait.
    Asked two questions about my qualifications and what i know about the company.
    IDK if she was scared to make eye contact or what, but man was it humiliating.

    So tip, dont go work her, even if they offer you all the money in the world.
    Looked like the worst work culture too, everyone looked super depressed and annoyed at each other, and why wouldn't they be with such a terrific boss, right?
