    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Credit Suisse (Pune) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I would like to share my personal review about interview process in credit suisse. I applied through consultancy in Pune. First it was java test consisting of objective and coding skills. After that it was 2 technical round followed by director round.

    I cleared all round and told that consultancy will get back to you. I followed up with consultancy and it was all good. They said its positive and you will get call from HR for salary negotiation. Everything good till now, but after two weeks i got mail saying that your candidature has been cancelled.

    I felt really bad, without any reason they just cancelled it. I was expecting at least something, i didn't feel bad about cancelling but they didn't had curtsy to tell why it was cancelled.

    I really wasted by valuable time i mean entire day, one of the worst experience ever.
