    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Paytm (New York, NY (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Worst experience ever.
    Got shortlisted through Cocubes in 1st week of May. Went to Noida to give interview. First they made us wait for 4-5 hours for the 1st round of interview. Then they announced results in the evening. Then they started with the 2nd round at 6PM in the evening. Each candidate was asked questions for about half an hour in 2nd round. Only one interviewer was there in 2nd round. Just imagine one person had to take 100-150 people interview and that too in the evening.

    Then at 8PM he asked we will call Delhi/NCR candidates to Paytm office and let us take only outsiders interview today. You will told about interview in 2 days. After 1 month we got a notification on Cocubes that you have been rejected.

    That is so frustrating....If you don't know how to manage why even call students for interview. I had interview of some other company on same day. Not only you wasted my time but messed up other opportunities too. I would request everyone not to waste their time in this company. They don't just respect others time.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Paytm (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    3 technical round and 1 round with some business person. Pretty easy. Not so chill or good environment it seems there.

    Before interview ensure that you get to know the position properly. They might not provide you any details at all, but will run after you to come for interview. The HR seemed to be very harsh. Also interviewers were not chilled, they looked to be stressed. The offer was sub standard so I had to reject it.

    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Noida
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Paytm (Noida) in August 2018.

    Interview

    This by far has been my worst interview experience ever.
    The HR called me to come for interview rounds at 9 am for Noida location and so i came.
    There was no official person in the office at that time.My first round (coding test) started 1.5 hours late and then i had my
    second round(f2f) , the interviewer asked me few coding questions and hashing related questions .
    I could clearly tell with the way she was framing questions
    that it was her first time of taking an interview(i have never said this about any interviewer ever before because this was
    literally my first experience!!!).After that, my next round happened after 3 hours of waiting.This time the interviewer was good,
    the discussions
    were positive,easy technical questions and i made it to the next round but only after waiting for a couple of hours again!!!
    Paytm clearly has no respect towards their candidates.
    So this round was also technical -array and heap questions,few DB questions,good interview.By the time i finished this round,it was already 6pm.
    For next round,once again 2 hours of waiting,because the HR thinks that the interviewees has no other job so they can took us,our time and and our energy
    for granted!
    My last round also went pretty good, Java oops concepts,garbage collection stacks question,i answered those questions pretty well.
    After the interview, HR came and inform me that the feedback is not ready yet as the interviewer has left
    and they will inform me after few days.
    After few days i couldn't wait and called the HR myself,asking for my feedback,he simply told me that i got rejected and didn't provide any reason for that.
    On pursuing furthur,he told me that he will provide feedback sometime later and ofcourse the later never came.
    I just want to give one message to the company that dont conduct interviews if you are not serious enough to consider your candidates
    ,it takes a lot of time and energy for a person to come and spend the whole day waiting for something which is serious to them but not to you!!
    We need this job as much as you need us here.
