    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Bengaluru (India)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Friday 24th Feb 2012, I got call from Philips HR (Anuradha, Arun). Later after interview I come to know that she is consultant at Philips. Disscused about skills, CTC and Expected CTC. She was ok with that.

    Sat 25th Feb. Took inhouse, computer programming test. - Result Passed.

    Thr 1st March. Telephonic interview for an hour - Passed.

    Again I confirmed about CTC and ECTC. Anuradha said, she had discussed with her team and they are ok with it.

    Mon 5th March. Complete day spent in inteviews (2 technical rounds). - Result Passed.
    HR gave me a form to fill up. I fileed it up. After looking at the form HR (Rama) and one more Leader took me in a meeting room, and cleared that my current CTC is out of their standards. And they can not affored it.

    My question is, after specifically clearing my CTC and ECTC details 2 times, why do Philips called me for interview? Complete waist of time and money.

    I tried reaching to Anuradha on emails and phone, but no response, she even do not bother to pick the phone. What should I do now. There is no feedback from her.
