    Senior Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at IGATE.

    Interview

    This was the worst interview experience I had in my entire career. Someone from the HR called me up one day and scheduled the technical interviw (telephonic) which was taken by a technical lead . It went on for 30 mins and was good. Then there was no response from them for 10 days and after that I got a feedbac that I was sel;ected in the 1st round. After that they scheduled another round of managerial cum technical round, through skype and I was selected in that one as well. Then they scheduled an Hr round , but the HR never called me and they told that they will be scheduling another round shortly. Then there was no response from them for 2 weeks and today a HR finally called me and told that the requirement they were interviewing me for has been put on hold it seems !! How can they interview a person for 2-3 rounds when the requirement itself is not confirmed !! This is simply ridiculous and I am really disgusted with their approach. They dont even have the minimum proffessionalism in them.

    Assistant Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fremont, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IGATE (Fremont, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Involved. I was fortunate in that my EVP handheld each individual at each step in the process in order to make sure it happened in a timely and efficient manner. Not all have had this experience. In many cases HR bungles the process and people get turned off on the company before they through the various steps.

    There is little negotiation.

    Technical Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at IGATE (Chicago, IL (US)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call around 10:30 AM to pick up a time between 1 PM to 3 PM for interview the same day. How in the universe, a company can be so urorganized to schedule an interview in 2 hours? I still went ahead and gave my time as 1 PM.

    It was a telephonic interview and the interviewer did not have any questions in advance and was asking some vague questions. He asked what are the architectural activities I do. When I started explaining the project overview and the process, the interviewer abruptly stopped me even before I complete the answer and jumped into another stupid question - is it possible to replace Java service with .NET service. I was wordless to get such questions.

    I could clearly see that the interviewer did not prepare anything and did not have any patience. The architect position is client-facing and how could you be so patientless after asking some stupid questions.

    At the end of the interview, the interviewer asked me whether I have any questions for them. I asked 2 questions and here are the answers and you can understand the attitude of the interviewer:
    1. If I am selected, which client I will work for?
        Sorry we cannot tell you; it is confidential.
    2. What really are the roles and responsibility of this position?
        You will do whatever a technical architect would do.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are very vague:
      Tell me about yourself
      What are the architecture-related activities you do?
      Can you replace a Java service with WCF?

      The interviewer was not waiting for any complete answer and was jumping into next question even before you could answer completely.   Answer Question
