This is my personal experience that after joining a company, there are lot of situations where I felt regret – Oh! I didn’t ask this question before joining and if I would have done that I might not have joined.
Core Department -
· Your Roles and Responsibilities – Be Cautious
· Your Technology and Version – Be Specific
· Where your Designation fits in Hierarchy
· Who are below/above to you
· Your next Designation
· Your next appraisal due.
· Abroad assignments – Any Bond
· Abroad Policies
· Notice Period
Finance Department -
· Reimbursement Details (Car, Petrol, Education) – To increase your take home
· Notice Pay recovery
· LTA – Monthly /Yearly
· PF contribution and optional/mandatory
· Form -16 requirement of the previous company (Sometimes company denies to release salaries unless you submit Form-16 of the last company. e.g WNS Gurgaon)
Admin Department -
· Office Timings (Any unusual timings for project specific)
· Causal Wear in week days
· Cab Services
· Zim / Canteen facilities
Even if you try to ask these queries, the un-reliable HR, will never give you the answers in written/mail. But be candid, and don’t rely on the verbal words and ask them to give in written. Otherwise it happens that the HR person, who might have committed you a lot, is now no more in company the time you joined.
My companies with bad Experience –
· Sapient Gurgaon
· WNS Gurgaon
· Rapidigm Pune
· Cybage Pune
- Accenture Pune.
Never rely on HR.
