Interviewer may make mistake but more than 2/3 is totally unheard.

Neither I am putting this as frustration for not clearing it, but a junk should be labeled as junk.

Interview Details Telephonic interview is where they ask for basic details. This is followed by detailed face to face interviews.

After that it is up to the person whether they accept it or not.

Software Developer Interview

Software Developer

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Citi.

Interview Details This hiring was for pune location and interview happened in Bangalore.
I was contacted through a consulting agency, and when i went to the interview location at scheduled time, i was told that it was first come first. I had to wait for 2 hours and then in interview, Interviewer was not even listening. He was more worried about not having lunch at 2 PM. And his behavior was so rude as if he just wanted to get rid of the process.
Questions asked:
Tell me about executor framework.
Difference in Future and Callable.
Singleton and Decorator pattern.
How two systems communicate each other?
I answered all of them but considering his behavior I left the venue after first round.
Will never ever apply for citi bank in my life.
