    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Time Inc. India in September 2017.

    Interview

    Was interviewed at Bangalore office on a working day, the recruiter told that it will be quick at will be wrapped up by 1 pm, but the process was very slow, plus the interview was very extensive each technical round (2 in number) last more than an hour and the entire process 1 written(MCQ + few queries and descriptive questions), 2 technical and a managerial lasted till 5 pm.

    Got the update the next day about my feedback being positive, waited for 3 days for any other communications but none recieved, did multiple follow ups, after a week got a mail to submit my documents, did the same, again till one week no communication.

    After a week the HR called and refused my candidatature any further, reason being the position went on hold. I still don't understand what just happened, I never thought that something like that happens after document submission.

    2 weeks were wasted, the worst part is that the same person told me on the day of recruitment that there are plenty of positions to fill in.

    Software Development Engineer || Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Time Inc. India (Bengaluru) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interviews process had 6 technical rounds.
    1. 2 rounds of Hackerrank programming
    2. 1 round of Hackerrank codepair
    3. 3 rounds of F2F technical discussion
    All the 6 rounds were about programming, algorithms, data structures, data modeling, Web app architecture designing, debugging/ troubleshooting, etc.

    At the end, they filled an HR form for me asking about my work preferences and details and told me to get back in 2-3 days. After waiting for 4 days, I did the follow-up and came to know that they are not taking my candidature further because (according to them), I was more into Java and less into Big Data, about which I am not sure how they really came on to this conclusion as they did not ask me even a single question (literally not even a single question) related to Big Data in any of the 6 rounds.

    Suggestion to the recruitment team: Please understand the fact that people actually make time for attending your interviews so until and unless you really need people to work for you, do not schedule the interviews. Seriously guys, not cool!

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Time Inc. India (Bengaluru) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First of all interview gets scheduled on Sunday and you are made to wait eternally,Initially people having >6 yrs exp were segregated and made to sit separately, then after a humongous wait (> 4hrs) , my turn for the first around arrived. First round went smooth , it was a technical round, then wait for the second round started another 2 hrs wasted.

    In the second round no technical question was posed, just was related to team management and leading the team, conflict resolution etc. 2 people took the round, nodded their heads for everything discussion went for half an hour and finally they asked the HR to tell me that I was rejected.

    Pathetic experience , you need to wait and wait and without any technical questions you are rejected, this happened to two of my other friends who had appeared for the round, same experience and rejection,

    Please don't waste your Sunday on this interview. Pathetic process, Pathetic panel

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Time Inc. India (Bengaluru) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First round was Hacker's Rank Round. After that 2 F2F round.
    My experience was really worst there.. I got a call from HR of Time Inc saying that I have cleared first round and can come for interview. When I went there they told u haven't cleared your first round so you can leave for the day... And I told that I got a call form HR saying that my round is clear and now you are saying its not clear.. Thats hard to believe and total time waste..After insisting they asked me to appear for next round.. After that all candidate were waiting almost from 4 hrs and then they got update interview Panel has not arrived so its will take more time to start interview process.

    We have been told initially that interview has been scheduled only slot wise so wee need not to wait much and will be over in max 2 hrs.. But everything told before was lie to us.. Interview process was really un organised.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Time Inc. India (Bengaluru) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was a namesake interview I guess. Maybe they were so desperate to hire an Automation Engineer. Other than self introduction, the Manager asked me only two questions. Those were the first two questions you find in Google on searching for Automation interview questions.

    Do not give away your last date immediately. The company has a policy for Joining Bonus but they always hide it. So be very careful over there.
