And more people looking for a job change. I had been to an interview couple of months ago (I don't want to name the company. Hint: They keep telling "people matter, results count") and it was a horrible experience. Around 500 people had come for the interview that day. I went there at 11:00 AM and had to wait till around 3 PM to take my first round, answering some technical questions on-line. I cleared the first round and then had to wait for another 2 hours for the second round (face to face interview).
It was around 6 in the evening when a guy calls me for the interview. I expected the interview to be conducted in a closed room, but it was in someone's workstation. The questions he asked me made me wish i had never come here. Here is one question I was asked
Interviewer: "I have a user table and the user name is the primary key. How do you stop users from entering duplicate user names ?"
me (tired and confused) : "Primary key is usually autogenerated and not entered by user."
So he insisted that the primary key is user name and asked me how to handle situations where user enters duplicate Ids. I don't remember what i answered.
And at the end of the interview I asked him what would my job role be as it was not mentioned to me earlier and he says its a 3 months contract job.
Worst part they did not even bother to tell the result of the interview and even worst i get another email after 2 weeks asking me to attend another Walk-in interview for .NET. They also mentioned the candidates who have attended the interview before can also attend. I thought this was a good company to work for, not anymore.
Sorry for the rant. feels good after letting it out.
