Senior Associate Technology Level II Interview

Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publicis Sapient (Arlington, VA) in June 2011.

Interview

There is a soft skills portion of the interview where you asked questions around teamwork/how to interact with others in a team setting, what you appreciate from managers and colleagues, your goals in the near-term and the longer term, etc.

The technical portion of the interview is mostly customer scenario you had to describe and whiteboard a solution, but also the interviewed talked w/ me about my experience from my resume, my overall technical acumen, and gave me a chance to ask questions about Sapient and his experience there.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Publicis Sapient (Bengaluru (India)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was a direct call from Sapient Gurgaon. They told that it was a very urgent requirement in Big Data and they scheduled the interview the very next day. The interviewer grilled me for 1 hour asking all the questions from almost all the hadoop ecosystem and Spark in detail.It was a very difficult interview. Anyhow I have cleared this round as Gurgaon HR informed me next day. It was telecon. They scheduled the second round aka managerial round and they told this was the final round. One of the Hrs from Gurgaon also coached me for what kind of HR questions could be asked. But the tragedy or worthlessness of this organization had started from this second round interview. First there was a total chaos regarding connecting to the interviewer. They cross connected to a different interview for a while. I was in Bangalore. And after Gurgaon team failed to connect Bangalore team called me for the rescue. After all the interview has happened.

    Alas!!!! was this a managerial interview??? The person only asked some very basic stuffs about Big Data and mostly normal project, estimation and process related things. And in the end he asked about my notice period and if I had any other offer. It was neither a technical interview nor a managerial interview. And from the interview I did not feel that guy as a senior manager or director.May be a project head in big data.

    But after that there was no communication from HR. So I mailed them again. To my astonishment she replied that I have not cleared the technical round. I again mailed her stating that she only informed me about the clearance of technical round and there would be no further technical round after clearing this one. So which technical round she has referred to???? She asked me to share my mobile no. I did. But there was no call from her side. Are these good-for-nothing HR in Sapient, Gurgaon sleeping or day dreaming in the working hours so that they even forgot about the status of the 1st round technical interview(what happened only 2 days back) and mixed all the things altogether to create a hodgepodge? It does not give any good impression about this company. Now I can understand why many of my friends quit Sapient within joining in a month or so.

    This is a most frustrating interview process I have ever faced. The "aggressiveness" from Sapient HR(especially in Gurgaon) needs to be properly groomed so that they won't create this kind of mess and did not frustrate prospective future employees.

    Interview

    The interview process is not convenient. The response after each round has to be followed up number of times. I would not recommend going through this kind of process. Not satisfied.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Publicis Sapient (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    5 rounds were conducted. First round was to take up an online test from HackerRank.com to write a java program for problem statements. Next round was a webex, a problem statement was shared for which object model, a complete coding for a module and a future enhancement CR with its implementation steps. Next round was a skype interview with a technical architect involving deep technical questions. Forth round was a managerial round over phone. Questions were assessing the depth of managerial skills and team handling. finally HR round to assess intent of joining and other general HR questions. I liked the webex second round the most, since it exactly portrayed what I was doing in projects, to design and implement. The first round of HackerRank programs was good challenging.
