iGate Interview Process
I applied at iGate for the post of Senior Software Engineer through a staffing agency. The process took just one day and I was immediately called for the interview at iGate. The hiring process had three rounds including two technical rounds and one HR interview.
Round 1 - First Technical Round
The first technical round was taken by only one interviewer. Questions were asked from me regarding the subcontracting process and by products movement type details initially. Then the questions moved to a bit advance level. I was asked about IV on the accounts affected at the time of GR. 2-3 questions and cross questions on IDOCS status and configuration were also asked. Overall interview was nice and I was able to answer all the questions in this round.
Round 2 - Second Technical Round
This round was technical as well as the Manager round. I was asked extensively about IDOCS processes. I was asked regarding the Ticketing tool. After a few technical questions like these, the focus then turned towards my previous job and a bit on my resume as well. I was asked about the projects that I did in my past job. He was interested in knowing the problems that I faced while completing those projects and how I sought them out. This round was longer than the previous round and many questions were asked making it tiring overall.
Round 3 - HR Interview
The HR interview started with questions that I had expected.
Why do I want to leave my present job?
Why do I want to join them?
What is my expected salary?
Why should they hire me?
After all these questions, I was told that the salary can be negotiated once they make the offer. I did negotiate a bit and got the package I wanted. Thus I accepted the offer.
How to crack (get into) iGate Interview
Since I gave the interview for the post of Senior Software Engineer at iGate, I had only three rounds of interviews and the patter is only applicable for candidates like me. If you are looking for a fresher process, then do not follow this.
As you might have already read now that in both the technical interviews, I was asked about IDOCS processes so that makes the first thing that you must be thorough with. They might be using it extensively on their projects and thus it's wise to prepare that.
Other than that, you will be asked all sort of technical questions that will prove your experience to them. Just be thorough with the terminologies and concepts what you used in the projects that you did. If you know all that, you can get through much easily.
This also means that you have to be thorough with your resume as questions can be asked from there. After that, you have the HR round which is not a problem. You will be asked the basic questions only regarding yourself and your job. You can negotiate on the offer they make you. So try to get your desired package.
All the best for your interviews.
