Senior Solutions Architect Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Delhi (India)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Tech Mahindra (New Delhi (India)) in December 2015.

Interview

HR calls up for Salary expectations , Interview Schedule etc. On Interview confirmation call , they would evade questions about Interviewer , his name , role , experience . Its normal expectation from the interviewee and a general Practice to to tell about the general profile of the panel , especially more so for senior roles of 15+ years . They were determined not to disclose for reasons best known to them. Other companies are sensitive to this and would proactively tell about the panel even without asking, but not TM :) .

Interview Questions

  • Even though I applied for "Senior Solutions Architect " , I was interviewed for a COTS product I specialized in .This was an expectation set and agreed during HR interactions.

    The interviewer appeared Technical Architect and relied on general scenario based questions which were either deliberately muffled or there was a severe a handicap in articulation . While replying , I tested him by also specifying how its done in my technology and he was caught when he misunderstood/confused terms for 'configuration' , constructs , IDE etc used in the COTS product. My fault was that I lost my patience and became loud-mouthed and sarcastic , even started cross-questioning.

    While I don't blame the interviewer , I think HR/Management should at least be transparent with senior people when all other companies are upfront and candid about normal queries.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Tech Mahindra in September 2009.

    Interview

    Good chaps, called at the appropriate time, were very punctual, and also seemed to be intelligent people. A rare breed today in many companies. Started off with a brief description of current job role, followed by questions on Core Java, slowly upping the tempo. About an hour long interview focussing on knowledge of core concepts as well as programming skills. Also checked problem solving skills. Nice experience overall.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tech Mahindra (Pune (India)) in May 2009.

    Interview

    The interview and hiring process is very "requirements specific". A lot of weight-age is given to skills and experience as it matches to immediate project requirements as opposed to overall "organizational value".
    It is a highly services delivery driven work culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to change ?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    If you can determine the market situation with respect to current demand for particular skills/experience, no. of other cos hiring for similar profiles and if there is live project that requires people to be hired, there is a better chance of negotiation. IN general the first offer is always low. Needto negotiate seperately with the HR team and with the project/domain teams.
