    I got a call from Pegasystems recruiter Hyderabad saying pegasystems is hiring java candidates to train them into Pega. Since I already had an offer, I decided to move on with other company. But now after exploring Pega PRPC, I found interest and pursued CSA course and got certified. But recently when I contacted the recruiters, they said they are not hiring java candidates to train them into Pega. Can you please help me with this confusion? I really want to shift my skillset and career into Pega. Please help

    I had a phone call after I submitted my resume and cover letter.
    There were several questions about my academic background and experiences. Those were pretty much what I expected.

    Senior Solutions Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pegasystems in February 2020.

    Interview

    Phone interviews with this company have convinced me they don't have their act together. They claim to be business process experts but their hiring and recruiting process is a complete mess. Recruiters are highly specialized and have no real sense of what's happening around the company in terms of the strategic direction or the kinds of personnel needed to execute on that vision. I've also noticed recruiters don't have a technical background and aren't really equipped to evaluate candidates. The questions they ask seem random and they don't really seem to be listening or grasping what you're saying. My advice: stay away.
