    I have been working at Sterling full-time (Less than a year)


    - Excellent recruitment experience, my recruiter was responsive with a variety of questions I had and knowledgeable about the business and industry
    - Interview process was quick & painless; focused on me, my thought processes and seeing if I would be a good cultural fit for the team and company
    - Onboarding was tailored to the employee; first week was communicated and scheduled before day 1; I had a warm welcome with treat waits for me. my badge and computer were set up and ready to go.
    - First few weeks included 1x1s with the opportunity to meet the team and learn the industry; it was a well-round and obviously thoughtfully planned schedule
    - People are warm, friendly and smart
    - When I had issues or questions, I was able to pick up the phone and get things answered quickly


    - There were some minor things, but all resolved extremely quickly...really no major cons of working at the company.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to role model the cultural values, sharing your personal stories to the wider audience and also applauding peoples failures so that they learn; I absolutely love the continuous learning culture that this company expects

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Thane
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sterling (Thane) in January 2014.


    1 day process. Voice - 3 rounds of interview. Non voice - 2 to 3 rounds of interview.

    The interview process is very simple. It take a day to complete 3 interviews and results are declared same day.
    Sometimes its 2 Human resources round and final operations round. Or any combination.
