Typically, what are the questions asked during an L1 interview?
04-06-2006, 08:01 PM
1. Why do you need to go to US?
2. What is the nature of your job/project?
3. What is your salary?
4. What is your position organization structure in the Indian company and after the proposed transfer to the US parent?
5. Will you be working from the same location as your manager?
These are some of the questions I gathered from co-workers. Even I've an L1 interview soon.

Looks like no one has posted any kind of replies to this post nor has anyone posted stuff related to L1B..
My interview was @ 10:00 am today(21/04/2006) @Chennai.
I reached ther by 9:00 and let me in by 9:15.. Normal crowd, no rush a s such. There are people to guide you, always. If u have any doubts, ask them and they will help you.
Finished Security, Pre-Screening of Passport/DS-156/157/I797/I129/Fee Recpts.,VisaIntervu Letter.
Went to the Main Bldg., Sent me to Cntr#8 for Fingerprints and then was tol ld to stand @ Cntr#6 (wo)manned by a nice young lady. There was just a one person being inervu'd and i was nxt!!
The VO was asking lotsa Project/Designation related Questions to the guy. i guess, 'cos he was showing signs of uncertainity and nervousness. Anyways, he answered all the queries eventually, and got the visa.
I was called next, with a nice smile.
Approached the VO and wished each other Good Morning.
VO asked me for the docs-file(this file is given to you @ pre-screening counter).
VO looked thru the docs, checked things on her computer, and in between asked me just 4 Ques's:
How many yrs. are u working in this Company?
What do you do in this company?
What will you be working on in the US branch?
Where will you be working in the US?
I answered all these 'crisply', in just 3-5 words.
Then the VO told me that everything looks fine and to go ahead and pay the fees.
I smiled and wished the VO to Have a Nice Day!!
VO didn't ask for any additional docs, altho' i had taken lotsa other docs wid me.
All the VO's are very polite... so atleast reciprocate similarly.
Be confident in what you say and know what you are saying.
If you show some kinda nervousness, then am sure that they will try and find out more on the reason for the nervousness. i.e. if your hiding information, or checking if the Candidate knows y he/she's going to the US. More questions could then be put to you and they might ask you for additional docs. so that they do NOT put any candidate in any kind of trouble out there, basically they are just doing good stuff for us, protecting us by avoiding getting duped, and all.
All the Best to all of you wanting to work 'with a proper Work Visa'.
