    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EXL Service (Bengaluru) in December 2015.

    Interview

    there were 2 rounds only 1 was performance test which was online includes 5 segment case study,tax,accounts,grammar,excel. you have to secure 50% average. test level was very difficult we were 90 on that day out of which only 12 got shortlisted I also cleared. next was pi the worst round I ever had they asked 10 question to me and I answered 10 out of 10 accurately. Then they called me rattu at that time. They asked me some questions about MS excel I said I know pivot macros vlookup hlookup they said we don't know that much how can you know. Then they start searching for my experience in my cv. I said u heard about google studied and learnt from there. Then again he called me rattu..after that he asked if I going to teach you something how many times I have to teach you ...I said 1 to 2 times depends upon the nature of the work. I am also a human. then he asked in how many days you will forget that concept? I said if I stopped working on that segment then may be in 2 or 3 month I may lost the fluency. He said at least you are honest.my suggestion They taking only their family members..don't go for interview better go somewhere else. bloody idiots they are.
