Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX (US)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Capgemini (Dallas, TX (US)) in September 2019.

Interview

Several days after I applied to four jobs, a recruiter left me a message asking to call back. Before calling people for interviews, I always investigate them in order to find their background and where they might stand in the scheme of things.
I investigated this recruiter and found that he was calling from India. I usually avoid these contacts because of so many recruiter scams and so much unprofessionalism that I get on a daily basis. However, I found that this person was indeed a Capgemini recruiter, so I went forward.
When I called, I found that his English was so poor that I could not understand much of what he was saying and I had to ask him to repeat what he said a few times. He simply read from a list of simple questions that he had prepared which did not delve into my experience except for asking how many years of experience that I have. His focus was primarily on trying to negotiate salary to a point much lower than the market rate and rates posted on GlassDoor. Really, salary was all that mattered to him.
The positions that I applied for were not mentioned either, as he was just trying to push his own positions. I am astounded and disappointed that CapGemini would outsource their recruitment to India. This experience yet again confirms my decision to never respond to recruiters that are in India or part of an Indian consulting firm.
Now, I fear that my applications for the positions that I applied for will have to go through this route and be lost forever. I am hesitant to apply for other jobs here if this is the case.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capgemini in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, it took less than a week for them to contact me back. First phone screen then they scheduled another technical phone interview in rush in the following 2 days. The interviewer spoke English with extremely heavy accent, he was not prepared to interview a senior candidate and expressed that he is not technical person. It was very hard to understand him. I asked him to repeat several time then finally he asked:" What is string". I still couldn't get the question. He got angry and said "why do you don't understand if you know how to program". I asked him again the question and realize "what is the string". Then I said sorry and couldn't move forward with this kind of interview.
