    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cartesian Consulting (Bengaluru) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied by cold emailing the Managing Director of the company.
    Was lucky! Got a reply from MD. (this company has an awesome boss)

    -After 3-4 days, got a call (screening) from Mumbai office.
    -Next telephonic interview was arranged the next day of screening (Got Grilled like a Tandoori Chicken)
    -Next I believe it will be a F2F interview or Skype where they might ask you questions on case studies and some puzzles! (I don't think I cleared the Tandoori Chicken round).

    If you clear the last round, you are hired I suppose.

    They have really smart people working in there!

    TIP: Prepare well before you apply for a job here. Not the toughest company to get the job but if you go unprepared you will be the next Tandoori.

    Hope this helps.
