    Technical Lead - EV Charging Infrastructure Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ola (Bengaluru).

    Interview

    1. The interview lasted 25mins. First the interviewer called on mobile and asked me to continue, however it was scheduled on Zoom. I asked him to join Zoom. (Unprofessional behavior). I had a chance to look at his linkedIn profile a day before interview.
    2. First 10min: Introduce yourself and my work, next 10mins: Product life cycle and how I handle my team, last 5 mins: He gave a vague explanation about what Ola does. I did not get a clear picture what and how Ola is entering the charging business.
    3. The interviewer looked immature (3 years experienced) and did not know anything about charging standards. Having worked in EV charging development and testing for more that 4 years I was expecting discussion about technical questions about EV and EVSE.
    4. The interviewer was young and had very less experience, interviewing candidates more experienced than him.
    5. In the end he said that there will be 2 more technical rounds (running away from the interview), however I came to know that I was rejected. No explanation, nothing.
    6. Advise to the management: Please schedule interviews with associates having proper technical knowledge.

    Interview Questions

    • Every question asked was about process and what team I am handling.
      Agile and waterfall cycle
      Question were too generalized and the interviewer was not capable of understanding the answers.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Guys don't waste your time in ola ..they are not sure that they needs candidates or not..they put your profile on hold without knowing any reason and after 3-4 months they will schedule interviews again and says we would not be moving ahead with your candidature and when you ask reason for rejection..they don't have any answer...if you don't have any vacancies then why you waste candidates time again and again..very bad hiring process.
