    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bennett Coleman and Co. Ltd. (Times Group) (Chennai) in May 2014.

    Interview

    They have a hierarchial Interview Process. There is no proper way of interviewing. The Management would like to talk more during the interview rather than listening to the candidate. They would try to extract as much information as possible about your current employer and are more interested to listen to speculative stories.
