I have got to know that Mumbai interviews are scheduled for 12th-13th November !


last year for Mumbai location, the interview calls were sent out on Friday around 4.30 pm for interviews on next weekend.

so we can expect that the interview invites might be sent today around 4.30 pm.


Thanks,

Is it better to interview in person. I had both the options but I chose Skype. Will this affect adversely?

No, this is not a worry. Take this off your mind and focus your efforts on putting in a stellar interview performance instead.

Every year, many applicants do this post receiving an interview call for multiple different reasons (they are travelling, personal or work constraints etc). Provided you perform well on the actual interview, this will not be a negative.

Just had my interview on skype. I am really confused of what to make of it. It lasted only for 13:48 mins and the interviewer seemed to be in lot of rush. Asked about my current work and then something about post mba goals and why am I passionate about it. Thats it. Did I do something terrible to turn them off? or it is okay to have such short interviews occasionally?

I think you have a high chance. Probably they wanted to check important things first, and the moment they were assured of your candidacy then no fluff questions were asked.
Good luck !

I had mine on 2nd Nov hyd. Pleasantries followed by barrage of questions.
Following ques were asked :
1. We know what's written on your application. Tell us something about yourself that we don't know .
I was stumped actually, since I didn't expect it to be the first question and my reply didn't take off well ...So first ques happened to be a bouncer ;-) and a very shaky start.
2. You are doing well in your career, why do you want to make functional shift from role A to role B ?
3. You want to get into company X for role Y, why so ? what makes you so different for that role.
They wanted to test certain depths of knowledge and how deeply I understood that role.
4. what is your company strength, when was it founded, what's the revenue, growth rate, clients ?
5. what's your company's future strategy ? Does it sound to be a right move ?
6. what is this award you got in company Z. why did u get it ?
7. So you what is your role ? Do you code as well ?
8.What is your leadership style ? What books do you read for gaining leadership skills ?
9.Where is your current company and previous company located in ? what does your previous company do ? What are its services ?
10. Do you have any questions for us ?

To be honest, except the first question I was comfortable in answering rest of the questions. I dunno what to take out of it. I have 8+ yrs of experience and probably they wanted to make sure they evaluated me properly. My 2 cents ! Hope this helps other candidates . Good luck !

Hi Himanshu,

According to what we are hearing from applicants who are in touch with us, Delhi calls are still not out. Mumbai and Skype interview invites were sent for mostly 12th and 13th nov.
