    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cairn Energy (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    It took a little more time than expected. My Boss took my first interview, the second round was 10 days later with HR. The 3rd and final interaction was with the Finance Head of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you think you can make the audit work more interesting than just a monotonous routine kind of job   1 Answer
