    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Deutsche Telekom (India)

    Interview

    1) Talk with company recruiter
    2) Online Test
    3) First technical round
    4) Second technical round

    I was initially excited about the interview as it was German - I expected the work culture to be good. But it instead seems terrible.

    The interaction with the recruiter was really good. The first technical round with the junior dev raised a few red flags. The interviewer seemed exhausted, and seemed to be following a interviewing process he didn't believe in.
    During the 2nd technical round, I'd decided I didn't want to work at this company within the first 3 minutes, but finished the interview out of common courtesy. I refused to extend the interview beyond the 1 hour though, as it'd be a waste of time.
    The company's tech culture seems authoritarian, and low-trust. It seemed like working there would entail being talked-down-to every day.

    The first interviewer seemed tired, hesitant, and scared, but also helpful. Seemed like a red flag. ​He gave me a leetcode question, acknowledged that usually those types of problems aren't involved in the day-to-day work, but also said that product-companies usually ask these types of questions in interviews.

    The second interviewer(Lead Engineer) acted like Salman Khan in front of a low-rung hindi villian. He was very rude, authoritarian, and pretty much clearly said "We don't trust that you won't cheat" even after I offered to show him the room that there's no one else there, and no other tech equipment in the room.

    I'd mentioned that it's weird being on a one-way video interview, and if we can proceed with the videos off, or if he could turn the video on as well. He said he couldn't turn his video on, but it's necessary for me to do so to ensure I'm not cheating. I offered to show him around the room, but he refused. At that point I turned off my video, and was about to tell him we can stop the interview here, but he asked if I'd be comfortable giving the interview if he turned his video on as well, and I'd mentioned yes. He then turned his video on.
    It was a bygone conclusion by then though - I'd decided I didn't want to work at the company by this point.

Im Studium werden in erster Linie fachliche Kenntnisse vermittelt. Sofern es sich nicht um ein Duales Studium handelt, das zusätzlich praktische Einblicke ins Berufsleben gewährt, müssen sich Studierende auf die Suche nach geeigneten Praktika oder Einstiegspositionen begeben. Doch wie geht man am besten vor, um eine passende Stelle zu finden?
