    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kronos Incorporated (Noida (India)) in January 2016.


    Interview process was smooth. They don't keep you waiting for long hours. First round was telephonic followed by an online test. Then there were two technical face to face rounds. And then finally the HR round.
