    I have been working at Carphone Warehouse full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenges to deal with various application and architecture

    Cons

    You need to sell yourself to get in the good books of higher managment

    Advice to Management

    If you are not observing your resources this is your fault. You take care of things which you are responsible of. Behave like a manager of entire team rather than specific team

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Thiruvananthapuram
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Carphone Warehouse (Thiruvananthapuram) in March 2008.

    Interview

    asked all the things which I think was irrelevant because i knew this job was going to be offered as there were no emp in the technology they were looking for in kerala...so i was sure the technical rounds and HR rounds were irelevant for anything ...whats distance between my house and office and convert them into different formats of measures and how would you interpret the data.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    barely any chance to negotiate....take it or leave it
