IT Support Team Leader Interview

IT Support Team Leader

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Société Générale in June 2013.

Interview Details very unprofessional!!!
I got call from a consultancy saying that there are openings in Societe Generale for Technical lead position. Interview date was scheduled. I reached their office on time for interview. After couple of hours first round is done and HR asked me to wait for next round. Waited till 3PM. Then they told me that they do not have interview panel for next round and I can leave for the day. After a month I got call for further rounds with team from their head quarters. Next round is completed. Next day I got call saying that I am selected and HR will contact me for a discussion. Within same week had HR round and I got confirmation from HR that he will send an offer in couple of days. I did follow up for couple of weeks. HR did not send any offer. This is very unfair. Even though HR told me that he will send an offer they did not give me any offer.

Interview Question – What leadership qualities I have which distinguishes me as better lead among others?   Answer Question

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Société Générale in March 2009.

Interview Details Not much anybody with exposure to banking can be hired. Know basics of banking and the project one has worked on. Show bit on project management and communication and you are sure shot for HR round. It is a slow paced company so do not expect much on day to day work.

Interview Question – why this job and company   Answer Question
