Project Lead Interview

Project Lead
San Francisco, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Mahindra Satyam in January 2013.

Interview Details Interview process with Satyam was ok but with client wasnt good. Hiring process wasnt professional. HR is pathetic. They dont give a heed to employee concerns. Once the visa was approved, they just pressurize you to join at any cost and keep on following on a daily basis to check if you are joining or not. Lot of insecurity and unprofessional attitude.

Interview Question – I want you to resign on this day. Negotations on salary not at par.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Pathetic.
