    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hyderābād (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Mahindra Satyam in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I took up this interview in early 2013. There were total 4 rounds:
    1. Technical
    2. Managerial
    3. Was supposed to be with a "higher up manager" but then was turned into Technical round
    4. 2 min talk with "higher up manager"
    Total time taken was around 2 weeks. HR kept chasing me asking for interviews but then slowed down considerably after round 2.

    I have a speech impairment, normally it doesn't affect my communication and it was something which I was upfront about to the HR. In spite of knowing this, they made me go through 4 rounds only to tell me I was rejected because of my speech problem.
    So I guess its your choice if you want to trust them specially if you have any kind of impairment.

    Interview Questions
    • Only unexpected question was - You have a speech impairment why should we hire you? (after 3 rounds of interview)   Answer Question

    Senior Quality Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chennai (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Chennai (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Mahindra Satyam in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process here is tailored to look complex and thorough but is actually a colossal joke. They had a written test for me which could be passed by a 2 yr old. The next round is a group discussion which does not have a moderator or watcher... So you end up just chatting with fellow applicants. The next 2 "technical" interviews were so ridiculous it felt like the interviewers were more interested in asking me about my personal life rather than my skills for the role. I guess one can't expect any better from a services company in India.
