Interview Process

I got a call from a consultancy and asked if I am available for face to face interview for API testing. I agreed and my interview time was set at 9.30-11.30 AM. I went at around 10 AM. To my surprise, there was a huge crowd waiting as if it was a walk in drive. I submitted my resume to one of the consulting people and my wait period started. To my surprise the wait was till 4 and I was not sure whether they would be taking interview or not.

At around 4.PM, I was assigned an interviewer. The place was fully crowded. I was welcomed and I sat for a technical round. The interview process was good but I was not fit for the job role. The interview experience was average.
