    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any particularly difficult questions that were asked. All questions were along expected lines   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    arrogant H.R and company not transparent about hierarchy

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

    Interview

    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.
