    Interview

    pretty easy....time management for aptitude will be important.it was a nice experience..you wouldnt feel that you are in an interview...practice on aptitude questions from online sites like indiabix,freshersworld,etc...i think it would be a nice place to work in...But they would look for only few students...it may not be a bulk recruitment

    Ecommerce Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at McFadyen Solutions (Thiruvananthapuram (India)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    2 Technical rounds and then the VP level interview and HR
    Technical round was taken by an arrogant guy, who thinks well of himself and all others have a GAAAPin there understanding. Interviewer will give you no chance to settle down, never gives any positive feedback or approves whether the answer was correct. On the otherside quick to pouch on incorrect ones and will drill down further to embarras you (even if its not related to the field that you are going to work on- imagine a BA being interiewd for DB design and table/SP structures)
    Never gives you the feeling that they are intrested in you (attended in weekend may in a hurry to leave i guess:). Felt like the attempt was to make you feel low, incapable and then build on that for further rounds (dont know if its tactic to negotiate)
    Exhibition of arrogance was the highlight above all....surprisingly this guy shortlisted me for next round though the damage was already done, decided not join before facing next round.
