    Interview

    After the initial phone screen, i was asked to provide my pay stubs, SSN, DL number. HR kept going back and forth on the salary. They do not have a fixed rate/salary for the role. They have some strange calculations based on the previous paystubs. Once they said, Xk after few hours it became X-5k and after few days, it became X-10k. I did not want to go forward with such unprofessional company. Please be careful

    Scrum Master/Android Lead Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Photon Infotech (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    There was a technical interview over skype after which they sent me a coding challenge by email and I completed it before the next interview. The guy who interviewed me on skype next (second round) did not seem to be in the US and looked drunk and behaved like he was intoxicated. I was wondering how he got away with the arrogant and rude behavior. What also upset me was the coding challenge they gave me took me an entire day to complete and he refused to even see it. The only person who was professional throughout was the recruiter, About the coding challenge - It was a totally useless test for the job I had applied for, which I still completed with patience. The next day I received an email from another person asking me to add more features to the app (coding challenge) - and he oddly wanted me to remove my name from all files. When they sent me an invite for the next interview round, I just declined to proceed with the process further. I felt they were immature, unprofessional and did not have a clue on how to select talent.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Photon Infotech.

    Interview

    While the people I spoke with her all very nice on the phone the process was very, very odd. I have 12 years of experience and nearly 75% of my 2nd round interview was spent on what I did 10 to 12 years ago. They wanted specifics about my performance from 12 years ago but barely touched on the more relevant experience from the past 5 years. I am not sure how strong they are at assessing talent if this is the style used by their leadership

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Photon Infotech (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interviews are mostly over the phone and never in person as they have an skeleton staff in North America.

      Very few technical questions. The only technical interview was conducted by the client.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Photon Infotech (Telephone, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Two round telephonic interview and then they offer conditional offer letter. Then one round interview with client and then finalized the offer.

    Their final offer having a clause of penalty if you don't complete one year and you need to have blood relation as guarantor. That is the starting point for further harassment.

    Interview

    Quick and general interview by one of the Program managers. As long as you're on your feet and are sure of what you've entered in your resume, the difficulty level is not too high for the interview. Some good questions were asked. Overall- not very nerve-wrecking and interviewer was quite polite.
