    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Société Générale in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two rounds of technical interviews followed by one managerial and one hr rounds. They generally conduct interviews as drives so, expect a lot of candidates to be present with similar skill set as yours.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chennai
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Société Générale in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had two face to face interview at Chennai for a opening. Hierarchy is very layered and can be misleading. Example: TL - 8A/8B, Asst Mgr - 7A/7B, Mgr - 6A/6B etc

    H.R is not very transparent about hierarchy in the company and this can be misleading and cause confusion for any potential candidate applying for an opening.

    Had 3 rounds of salary negotiations post which offer was rolled out. It was only in the last round they clarified about the actual hierarchy in the company. In hindsight it was a difficult but good decision I let the offer go as much better offers came after.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Société Générale in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got a call through a consultant Triple'A Plus product in SG. I had 2 Face to Face technical rounds in Bangalore, 1 from Geneva (for Triple'A Plus product) and one HR round. The questions were specifically from Triple'A Plus as I worked for more than 2 yrs in that Product. The senior interviewer didn't know that much about the product where as being from the Triple'A Plus R&D team, I knew more than them. I got selected..

    Interview Questions
    • To customize Triple'A Plus, we used to use Design Studio (a licensed version from Temenos & SG was not buying the license) hence I was asked manual customization process.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Not much technical work that I was expecting from them.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Société Générale in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a quick session from morning to noon one day. There were 3 rounds in all, 2 with the hiring management and 1 with the HR. Not very tough or inquisitive interview as such. Most of the interviewing managers/staff tend to be developers turned into managers.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really difficult as most of the questions were basic and standard.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They offered a decent hike in the initial offer. I countered with my counter offer. 1 day later, they accepted my counter-offer. HR wasn't very strong in negotiating.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed 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.
