    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Mahindra Satyam (Pune) in April 2013.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me for interview with Mahindra satyam. I had series of interviews without direct contact with the HR. It all went smooth ..just tad slow. I had 4 telephonic interviews and one onsite meeting.First interview was to get overall idea on my knowledge which I had highlighted in my resume. 2nd was more technical on database like how to convert RAC-nonRAC etc. 3rd round was a short technical and more of a discussion. 4th was HR discussion and then I was called for onsite meeting.

    Negotiate based on your value in Market.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Mahindra Satyam (Hyderābād).

    Interview

    One technical interview which is easier. Then came the negotiation part where they offered me a figure for which I have no options to negotiate. I was just given the choices whether to accept it or not. Not even the chances on negotiation of the position which they fixed it already.

    Interview Questions

    • We can offer you only XXX of salary and only XXX position. You have only 2 options whether to accept or not. Do you accept?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They gave out the figure and the only options I have are Yes/No

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Mahindra Satyam (Hyderābād).

    Interview

    I was recruited as an ELTP (entry level trainee programmer) in one of the Walk-ins in Hyderabad. It consisted of an aptitude written test followed by a GD and 2 rounds of intervew (1 technical & 1 HR round)

    The techincal round questions are basic question of programming language in C/C++, operating system and software engineering and your engineering project, which can be cleared with ease. HR round was to test your attitude and instincts.

    All in all, the interview is not the toughest but its not very easy either. Out of 5000+ candidates, 81 were finally selected.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Pay package was fixed for entry level programmers. So no scope of negotiation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Mahindra Satyam (Hyderābād) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I took up this interview in early 2013. There were total 4 rounds:
    1. Technical
    2. Managerial
    3. Was supposed to be with a "higher up manager" but then was turned into Technical round
    4. 2 min talk with "higher up manager"
    Total time taken was around 2 weeks. HR kept chasing me asking for interviews but then slowed down considerably after round 2.

    I have a speech impairment, normally it doesn't affect my communication and it was something which I was upfront about to the HR. In spite of knowing this, they made me go through 4 rounds only to tell me I was rejected because of my speech problem.
    So I guess its your choice if you want to trust them specially if you have any kind of impairment.

    Interview Questions

    • Only unexpected question was - You have a speech impairment why should we hire you? (after 3 rounds of interview)   Answer Question
