Axapta Consultant Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 months - interviewed at PwC in February 2014.
Interview Details The interview process is extremely slow and unorganized.I was called at Pwc Gurgoan office for F2F for the first round,i reached on time and there interview was done on phone (i can't understand why they call me if they have to do with phone :) ).Well , question asked was good and tricky.After one month they declared me pass in first round and said second round will be scheduled soon.I see on their candidate portal my status.But i did not get any call until one month.I cleared 1st round on 28 feb 2014 and get call on 28th march for second round but second round was scheduled on 25th april 2014 (more than 2.5 month passed since 1st round).
Second round was again telephonic, the question asked was very tough , and tricky.Much knowledgeable person was asking the question and i am able to answer 70-75% questions.The interviewer was satisfied with my answers.
Within 2 day i got a call that i am selected for VC round with Partner/Director.
VC round was scheduled at 8:30 am , very formal question were asked, may be my second round was good enough that's why this was only formal.question like why you want to change job etc.
At noon, same day the called me and asked to submit documents and informed me that i had cleared VC round.
After 3-4 days they call me and ask for CTC negotiations and told me the position will be of retainer profile (all process was done for permanent position), i said ok.
On candidate portal , i saw my status as "offer Approved".
But after 2-3 day i got a call again fro pwc gurgoan , for interview. The question was very non-reasonable.
no response for next 1 week , i send mails to the HR. Then again they schedule interview (Telephonic). This time it is from PWC banglore. Simple question were asked by three persons, i answered almost correctly to all.
Again no response for 1 week, then i send mail to HR, she told me that they drop that position as there is no project :)
So they took more than 3 months for all these drama !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now on candidate portal , my status is set as "Candidate not interested" ....
