    Data Analyst/ETL Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IGATE (Jersey City, NJ (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    One interview - over skype. Very tough, text book questions. They were not much interested in what I had done in the previous projects/companies as long as I knew the text book answers. I tried to explain them that I do not know the text book definitions, but I can explain the concepts if you give a little background and they were fine with it. In all, I was not expecting the offer based on the interview, but they offered me.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of text book questions. If you are in DW, read Ralph Kimball and you should be good.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Very rude recruiter, very non-cooperative and totally unprofessional over phone and email conversation. Had no email etiquettes.
    I wanted to meet the client in person and they initially said they would set up a meeting. But even after signing the offer letter they did not set up the meeting with client.
    Did not send the address of the office even after final offer letter was offered.

    Senior Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bengaluru
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IGATE (Bengaluru) in October 2011.

    Interview

    In my case, the Operations Manager called me for the opening. The interview continued for about a month until the HR department contacted me for salary negotiations. Once done with the negotiation, they sent me the offer letter along with guest house accommodation and pick and drop details, which I readily accepted. They had given me a date to join the company. I could claim 2nd class AC tickets for me and my wife for relocation so I bought the train ticket to the earliest set off from Kolkata to Bangalore and joined IGate (then iGate patni) on Oct 24th, 2011. After joining the client end BGC was conducted and it ended within a month. This was followed by a BGC by the company which was dragged for about 4months because of some technical issues. Once everything got settled, I officially became an employee of iGate!!

    Negotiation

    Yes, i was able to negotiate. In fact, I was offered more than I had expected! One tip I would like to share: try on a higher payscale...that much more than you expect ;)
