    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sears in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed through a consultant. Interview process is overall good. Tech round happened solely with US tech guys. Overall process was good. Difficulty is about medium. It happened in about 2 weeks and 3 tech rounds.

    Tricky part was the HR round. Harassing and uninterested member of senior staff took it and gave absolutely no feedback. Shouldn't proceed with the profile if you don't like it in the first place. Based on how it happened i don't think i will ever consider it even if the offer came. I don't know with what kind of mindset these 2 guys from pune office conducted it.

    Information Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sears in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was working in a Accord IT Systems in Kolkata, when suddenly a senior
    of mine told me that there was a good opening with SHI in Pune. I
    expressed my interest and within a week the HR team called me for a
    convenient time for a telephonic interview. The Technical lead called me
     up and asked me some application based questions on Tomcat, Geronimo,
    etc. After a day, I received an email from the HR team congratulating me
     for clearing the first round and asked me to join the second round in
    Pune.

    Pune was entirely a new city for me and the HR assisted me initially to
    locate the office correctly. On reaching the venue, I was greeted warmly
     by the HR team and a lady escorted me to the recruitment lounge, which
    was nothing less than the lounge of a 5* hotel. I was made comfortable
    while I was palpitating a bit about the interview and the position like
    most job seekers. I could not do much company related study before
    reaching for the interview , thanks to the company's videos, which
    helped to gather fine information about the company and its galore of
    social activities. There was a group of tech heads who interviewed me on
     various things- from technology to current affairs and more. This was
    followed by a 1:1 HR round for salary negotiations.

    Interview Questions
    • Although all questions were based on practical work experience, but one question
       "What is the lifecycle of an applet?" troubled me a bit, as I did not
      expect they will ask me something which I read when I was doing my BSC
      (IT). But I somehow answered it.
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not have to negotiate, because they gave me a comfortable hike. As
    far as I saw among my friends and the suggestions I received from my
    seniors, Sears pays good for the deserving candidate. So one need not
    worry much for the salary part, just focus on the interview and the
    enjoy the ambience once you are in the Pune office.

    Technical Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sears in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied in their website when I got to check the vacancy for the said position. Within a week I got a call from their HR team to fix a quick telephonic interview with the Manager. Soon after that was done, I was asked by the HR team to come to the Sears Pune office for next round of interview. The HR personnel greeted me very nicely when I arrived at the office and escorted me to the interview lounge. The members of the interview panel were pretty professional and balanced in their questions and behaviour. It was all overall a great experience.

    Interview Questions
    • I did not expect the interviewer to ask me about my favourite literary novel! But then realised it was my mistake as I mentioned reading literature in my hobbies. Guys! the SHI team is extremely careful with regards to what you write in your CV to who you actually are!   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not have to negotiate at all.. as hey offered a pretty decent 40% hike to me... which was pretty much acceptable!
