Software Engineer Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at IGATE in December 2010.

Interview

It is very very easy if you get hired from campus interviews in India. There is a small test which checks your aptitude and after clearing that test, you get interviewed. In campus, the interviews are not at all Technical. They ask you very generic questions to know how much you know about company and how would you react in certain hypothetical situations. Basically it just tests you attitude and capability of quick learning.

Interview Questions

  • No Technical questions. You have to be calm and composed while answering and you get selected   Answer Question

Negotiation

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at IGATE (Chicago, IL (US)) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Hiring and interview process is simple as long as the expected salary is lower than the market. Interviews are usually done by non-technical staff who needs to a number from 1 to 10 in the list of skills. The next step is actually with the client and the complexity will depend on the position and the salary negotiated. But overall I think this is a right way to filter out people before submitting to a client.

    Interview Questions

    • Not much I can think off except answering a technical question to a non technical person.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was not very difficult, they were ok if your demands make sense. But all that depends on the client that they are working on.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at IGATE in April 2015.

    Interview

    Got a call from a staffing agency about a position. Set up an interview with the hiring manager in few days. I can tell you the desi interviewer was the rudest I have ever came across. Absolutely no sense of professionalism in him.

    Forget about introduction. He immediately jumped into technical questions. As usual a typical desi interviewer.As usual bookish questions and he will keep digging you until you spit that one term that he wants to hear. He asked me a bunch of bookish questions which I explained, as usual he didn't got satisfied and he became hyper and rude that got my nerves. He kept pushing questions not even allowed me to finish my answer. I was like chill dude this is just an interview not a court legal debate! I got a sense what kind of people run the company. Thanks for not selecting me as I would have also not worked with you anyways!
