What are some interesting campus recruitment rejection stories?
1.SAP Labs Interview:Two HR were present and were discussing with me.
Interviewer 1: Do you have any questions?
Me: In ppt, you told that you provide free food, transportation and work from home.
Interviewer 1 & 2 : Yeah
Me: So, can I use the free transport go to office have food, come back with the free transport, and then work from home.
网友评论：I would have selected this guy -> he can identify opportunities and make connections to solve problems/find solutions!
2.This happened to a female friend of mine when she appeared for a TCS interview. Lets call this female T. Her technical interview had gone very well and the following happened in the HR:
Interviewer: Would you be comfortable being posted anywhere in India?
T: Actually, Sir, my mum is very old and is in fragile health. Being the only child of my parents it is my responsibility to take good care of her. This is the reason which prohibits me from traveling around let alone living in a different city.
(Interviewer starts asking other questions. )
Interviewer: We are very impressed by the technical knowledge that you have and we’d like to consider you for our New York branch. What do you think about that?
T: Sir I’d love to go to New York. I was waiting for this opportunity and I assure you that I’ll work hard and you’ll never regret this decision.
3.This is one of my friends’ story. He cleared the written round and group discussion of Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS). The interview rounds were held in another college. He managed to clear the technical rounds too. Then came the HR round.
Interviewer: How did the rounds go?
Friend: Yeah, they went very good.
Interviewer: Say why are you interested in our corporate.
Friend: Sir actually this is one of the biggest conglomerates in the country. Joining “Accenture” has been my dream sir since…
Interviewer: Wait, do you know which company’s interview you are attending?
Friend: Oh, Shit.
P.S: He is now placed in a very good company. 🙂
4.This happened with my friend while he was being interviewed for a startup company.
Interviewer: (Gives him a puzzle.)
Friend: (Solves puzzle with ease.)
… At the end
Interviewer: Do you have any question to ask?
Friend: (Gives interviewer a puzzle.)
Interviewer tries and gives up.
网友评论： Waoww!! Now that requires some attitude !! I guess the interviewer had inferiority complex!! Lol 😀
5.: “So tell me about yourself.”
网友评论：Finally, finally I got the answer to the damn “Tell me about yourself”. You, Sir, deserve the Noble Prize!
