I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tyco.
Initially I was hired as a Assistant manager, and was also promised for growth with in 6 month to 1 year to the position of Manager. There would generally be a good amount allotted for new hires, how ever HR/ Dept Managers negotiate too much and gain importance showing cost saving on the hiring, very poor hiring strategy. This has a long standing effect as when you compare your counter part in other countries/ town/ other companies with in India, many a times you would realize that you have not been on par with your counter part.
Job Security - This company has a history of firing people with out proper notice period, due to failure in their recruitment process.

Interview Question – It was so basic no unexpected questions Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Tyco in August 2013.
I was employed by the company in a different position, so I was an internal candidate. I had been with the company for 12 years working in several different positions, so I had a lot to offer (technical background, MBA, knowledge of back-office systems, and business operations).
I approached the hiring manager to discuss the open position. Initially, he was apprehensive about considering me for the position, and rightfully so, as I had no experience in finance yet. However, because of my extensive knowledge of the company and systems, he decided to interview me. Ultimately, he selected me for the position, and I'm very pleased he did.
I've enjoyed working in the position for the past year, as it has provided me yet another new perspective on the company's operations.
