hello payal. my exam was on 6th june.
FOR ACCOUNTS DOMAIN SELECTION PROCESS WILL START BY AUGUST. THIS INFO WAS GIVEN ON CALL BY HAWKINS HQ

What are the odds of only a single person getting the call for GD/PI ..??

Thanks Payal and Adnan.. I wrote my exam on 25 may and on 28 June I got a mail about my selection. And in mail they have mentioned for GD & PI on 5 and 6 Aug in Mumbai. On 2 july I received a courier also by Hawkins in which the sent me an application which had to be filled and sent back to them. Though I am from Engineering background but I wrote the exam for Management Trainee- Sales.
any news for Management Trainee- Accounts. ???? Please update.
Any news about management trainee - engg ?? Has anyone got a call ?Accounts n sales have got calls from what I read in this forum.
Any one from Accounts received call letter for GD PI please update ?
HEY IT SEEMS SELECTION PROCESS IS COMPLETED. NO COMMENTS NO NEW POSTS. .
Any news for Management Trainee- Accounts. Please update.
Hey, but you said that Hawkins informed you that for accounts selection will start in august. You sure the selection for accounts is completed and that no more calls will be received?
definitely trainee for accounts selection will start in august. My earlier post is for all of us who stop to share their views. so I thought it seems selection process is completed. at least see the effect. you contribute what you thought. Extremely sorry if you get misunderstood.
: ) thanks again.. The wait is a lil irritating.
anyone who had appeared for GD at Hawkins for the post of management trainee sales, kindly share your experience and topic
yes, wait is irritating. yesterday I called Hawkins HQ. The executive over there told that the selection for accounts trainees will commence in august. and we will get to know in august- September. so we have to wait now much more
That is a long wait but i am just hoping that we can get through it. Isnt the selection quite tough??
I don't know much more about selection process. But it will be really good experience if we get selected for GD PI. after all working for Listed & Reputed company will certainly makes difference. !! Power of Brand !!
So we know engineering and sales profile's GD/PI is in 1st week of August. So, now we are left with the following profiles Accounts Personal Secretaries Programming HR Please let us know if anyone gets a call from any of the above profile
hey Adnan ! Do not worry man! we will definitely get a call letter for GD PI. Thing is only that this waiting period is not tolerable. Again those who got call letter ( may be sales or engineers) are not sharing anything. So what left is only to wait. but its nice and some sort of relief that we are expressing via this site. keep in touch man.
by the way Adnan for what profile are you waiting ?
I have my written exam in 8th June stream personal secretary. The exam was damn good. I don't remember answering anything wrong. Could anybody please tell if they got call for GD/PI for this stream. I am from orissa.
I have appeared for Personal Secretaries
Do you think working for reputed company will help in getting the job?? I thought everything will depend only on how we performed in the written test. Do they expect us to answer all the questions correctly?
I do think so. The written exam will help them evaluate the candidates expertise. Although I got only 2 years of working experience.
any one from any stream received call letter for GD PI please share the experience
Just spoke to guys from hawkins .As of now only recruitment for sales is on .. As in the interview dates are out .interview dates for accounts are also out. Engg will take atlest a month more.

How was GD & Interview, give some inputs regarding them.
reg GD and PI GD: started at 11 am, they told us the chairman would come in few minutes and meanwhile asked the 12 short-listed candidates to discuss any general topics and they left.Finally chairman came by 3 pm and started the GD,we were split into two teams and the topic was " pro's and con's of working as a sales professional in a corporate environment " PI: 9 were short-listed and personal interview was normal. just questions about your education, native place,work experience if any, a small question on % calculation, opinion about the company, what changes can you bring to the company,language skills,how you felt during entire interview process...
Do they hire females for the post of management trainee sales?
i do not know exactly about recruiting women. All the short-listed were men and they clearly reminded us that its a hard core sales job . it might me easier for women if its sales job in a particular city or town ,but this role involves constant monitoring business in one or two states and also to Mumbai HQ every 45 days for periodic review.Three or four months in the job is great fun, 6 months and you already feel frustrated.

Are you ready for cold call That's it not introduction nothing else not before not after that's it.7 Answers
Be professional, learn how to initiate interview. You are not interviewing some one to sell cycles.
Ms. vidushi Sharma, Let me tell you again I asked you to wait only 15 min there & even you haven't reach at Allan Lloyds office because their office opens at 10.00 AM, you were just sitting at building reception, I think you havent check even address proper coz you were setting at ground floor & their office is on 4th floor, there are 50 companies in that building, You dont even know were to approach & you came here only as sales executive interview not for VP position so you dont need to advice or tell its shop or office, you are working in Kiwitech shop thats why you dont even know how to approach companies, you wasted your time with security guard. i feel very sorry for you because of this attitude you will be executive always.
First thing I was there till 10:30 I have uber receipts I will post that here if you still don't feel sorry for what you did. Second I already told that I was waiting at main area as there was not even a single employee in your office by that time so no point to repeat same thing in your comment. Third I called it a shop as I saw lack of professionalism, you call some one and then you don't reach there and you don't even feel sorry is not a sign of good organisation. And please don't compare yourself with a global brand which has offices in 6 countries and known for professionalism and management. Last one, I might be an executive with which I am fully satisfied but you seem a senior person you are also representing your shop I am sorry I mean company still so many grammatical error. Please go to a freelance copy editor before posting next comment. And don't hire someone to find errors in my comment as I am just an executive. You should feel sorry for that mistake and should take steps to avoid such incident but instead of that you are doing another mistake. I am sorry I don't do personal comments but whatever you wrote just to remind even if you are a VP you don't have right to disrespect an executive. Hope you will realize your mistake if not I am always ready for debate.
well, I can see that's you awkward attitude, I sent you for interview & told you specifically that office opens at 10.00 & HR team will be there at 11.00 AM, you can keep you attitude with you & don't teach me english if you so perfect then try google or be a english teacher don't pretend like some one scold you there, you behavior is very awful thank god you are not hired through to me as consultant i made big mistake to refer you at this company, i don't know how kiwitech is keeping you with this attitude & i really feel sorry for your company & management, you can't wait 15 min for interview & pretending like global CEO. still you are just keep repeating same story where you were wrong, well last i can say you are worst candidate to hire or recommended to any company coz of your awful behavior, you are perfect for EKTA KAPOOR Serials.
Neelam it's too much now, see your writing style. I leave it to readers now as your writing style is perfect representation of your company. What ever you wrote is completely unprofessional. I know you won't realize it but I am sure those who will read it will be in better position to evaluate about this company. Since you are a consultant that's why you don't even care that you are ruining this company image even more publicly by using such inappropriate and not required words. I don't want to clarify any thing to you but for readers, below is timing confirmation from your email, I will share email screenshot on some other site and will post URL here if that's required: --------------------- From: "Neelam Pandey" Yes we are working on Friday(29/5) however try to come on time at below mentioned address:- --------------------- "Hi Neelam, I can make 10 am this Friday 5/29 work for interview." -------------------- And Neelam I did a quick research after you mentioned you are a consultant and found you (MNB Digital Solutions Pvt Ltd.) don't even have website. So expecting any kind of professionalism is useless from you. I also reached at conclusion that it was my mistake that I accepted your request to come there without doing proper research.
Are you still with kiwitech or fired ? coz i can see your frustration, you are making whole story just because you couldn't wait 15-20 min ? Now I can see how much time you are wasting on glassdoor & putting your energy to reply here rather then working in your current shift, I will show these replies to higher management of kiwitech & will tell them how this employee is using your resources for own benefit, you are not productive for company just applying new jobs & spending time on glassdoor, being sales person which i doubt you have enough time to do all this drama.I hope kiwitech management will take it seriously.
Oh God! I don't need to tell who sounds more frustrated here. I have neither threatened you nor use harsh words like you still you are so angry? You are making your situation worse with each of your comment, no one would appreciate these responses. If you don't believe me ask some one else. Anyways if you need contact number of my management to complain about this then I'll be glad to provide that as I know them better than you. You are threatening me, this will only restrict others to go for interview on your request. And now you have forced me to write another review about your consultancy but only problem is I am not able to find it on glassdoor.

i just replied her that i waited for her call id in the app, and she continue keep discuss saying that was my fault, i just said, i don't need this kind of talk and turn of the call
Thanks for your feedback. It may be possible you left this review for the wrong company, as (1) we don't have a Sales Manager position open in this region, and (2) we don't require people download an app for an interview. Regardless, I hope you find the right company and position for you out there and wish you the best of luck.
Hi Mike, the position is Sales Director/Beijing office/ and interview was made by Kanika Kappor.thanks
Thanks for providing feedback and I'm sorry that it was a negative experience for you. We often do interviews via video conferencing--we believe it helps create personal experience when candidates can see the interviewer live. We've learned from experiences like yours that when we do video interviews we need to provide more information to candidates about the logistics and also set up a backup method of contacting people in case there is ever an issue. We've made these updates to our interview process and will keep working to improve. Thanks again for the feedback.
