    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AIR Worldwide.


    Poor Interview Process. Having 6 rounds and 6 people were from different area. Most of them learnt questions from Internet and asked. Please be careful when going for attending interview here. Advice to the management that if you want engineer for particular team just schedule interview with that team to know about Technical skill set. Instead arranging interview with 6 people from different team and asking more or less same question is not good way of interview. Skilled people also will gets struck on these kind of poor process. Also good tip to the interviewers that try to extract information from interview guy what he or she worked on and those fits for your requirement. Instead don't try ask the question that what you know. It doesn't need that whatever you know that other person should also know. Be practical on the interview questions. Don't just get from Internet and ask for it.
