    Associate Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Syntel (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I applied online. They called me and sent an email to set up a phone interview which was easy non-technical. She explained that the Philly position I applied to wasn't actually open and gave me some other location options, and I agreed to apply to Phoenix. Then they sent me a 75min timed programming assessment which was somewhat tricky in that I don't know, and didn't claim to know, some of the languages and things they asked, and some typos were distracting and made questions ambiguous. Five days later they said I had passed the assessment (must have a low bar for passing) and they wanted to do a Skype technical interview. I studied the questions reported here, and it was easy. The interviewer wasn't technical and seemed to be reading a script. I didn't hear back after that until a MONTH later "reminding" me that everything went well with my interview and they were just waiting for positions to open up... Why were they advertising for positions they didn't have open?

    Interview

    I was contacted via LinkedIn. A couple of days later I had a brief non-technical phone interview outlining the hiring process. I was sent a link for an online technical/computational assessment to be completed within 24 hrs. I wasn't too bad though I would review SAT-type math. Next came a technical interview a week later. Again, not too bad.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Syntel in November 2013.

    Interview

    Had a total of three rounds, two technical and one HR, all of them were telephonic. First technical was only to clarify the experience mentioned in resume, second technical was more specific technical questions related Java, Programming, Maven, Design patterns, and previous project experience. HR Round had more basic questions like previous experience and reason for looking for new opportunities. Overall the interview process was petty straight forward.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Syntel in April 2018.

    Interview

    Had a screen interview over the phone after applying online. Emailed back and forth between me and the assistant manager to schedule the technical interview. I originally scheduled the interview for Tuesday, but she didn't see the email and we had to schedule it for Thursday. When Thursday came along, I didn't get the Skype interview or a call so I emailed the manager again. She told me that the interviewer was busy and asked if I can do the interview at 5:30pm instead of 5pm. I emailed her back saying it was okay, but the same thing happened again when 5:40pm came along. I get an email the next morning saying the interviewer couldn't do the interview on Thursday and if I can do the interview today(Friday) at 5pm instead. I didn't even bother replying. It was a complete waste of time

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Syntel.

    Interview

    Interview went well. Had client interview also. Totally 2 rounds of interview. But later came to know that position was on hold. No professionalism to inform the candidate about the interview process and about the next steps. Not at all feel like joining this company.
