Redbytes Employment Lab
Job interviews can be a long, tedious, and an unproductive (more often than any of us would like to admit) affair. It is quite similar to sifting for gold – very rarely you strike gold.
We at Redbytes, have discarded the monotony in this process and jump-started an innovative project called the “Employment Lab”.
The idea is pretty simple
The purpose of an interview is that both employers and potential employees get to express their requirements as well as what each can offer, while looking for the right fit. Later sometimes, we all find ourselves reconsidering our decisions.
Our idea is to avoid these regrets on both sides by giving each other a try-out.
The “Employment Lab” is essentially about building relationships through exchange of knowledge while testing the candidate’s efficiency and technical know-how. Technologies are marked by variation, and hence different people fit different technologies. Being good at one technology doesn’t always guarantee success in another.
Freshers and even experienced professionals, sometimes, take time and multiple projects to find their groove. The “Employment Lab” is our one-stop project for not only reinventing the recruitment process, but also helping each other in finding the right fit.
The process is as follows - We invite freshers to be a part of our organization for two working weeks. During these two weeks, they come to our office during regular working hours and read up on the technology they are being recruited for.
Redbytes also provides them with the means (infrastructure, Internet, learning modules, etc.) and machines for this learning. We do not provide them with any formal training, but help is always at hand. In fact, we are basically checking their self-learning abilities.
As time progresses, we assign tasks based on that technology to evaluate them. If our evaluating trainers/tech leads are of the opinion that someone would do well in that technology and fit with us, we onboard them.
The evaluation is not based on technical criteria alone. The candidate is also observed for their general behavior, attitude, professionalism, work ethics, and soft skills. Basically, these two weeks provide us with ample time and opportunity to closely observe the candidates.
On the other hand, the freshers get to work on a new technology and can decide whether or not they would like to continue in the same. They also get to observe us, our work culture, and processes, and make an informed decision about working with us. All in all, it is a win-win situation.
The entire process at “Employment Lab “is FREE. We neither charge nor pay for these two weeks. We can also proudly claim that though this process has no monetary value, our experience with it has been priceless.
Here, we have sometimes, helped someone realize their hitherto hidden skills and aptitude. To those whom we cannot offer jobs, we provide counsel based on their skills and strengths. At other times, the freshers have helped us see some of our processes in a different light.
Not all these candidates could be onboarded, but most interactions have stayed with us and will continue to do so. Most importantly, having these freshers with us have always kept us motivated. Their infectious energy never allows drudgery to be a part of our work life.
Our primary motive of making this an enriching experience for all participants, thus finds true meaning in this exchange.
So far, we have had about 65 freshers who have enrolled in the “Employment Lab”. Out of them, 10 freshers have been onboarded by us. They are all a valuable addition to our workforce and hopefully, will continue to add to our rich legacy.

Hi my name is Rushikesh Lahane currently working in Redbytes softwares as Mobile Application Developer. I saw the advertisement of vacancies for the post of Trainee Engineer at Redbytes on job portals and applied for the post. After some days I got a mail from redbytes in which there was a assessment test from home. I attempted that test and cleared it after which I received phone call in which they called me for an interview. I gave the interview and cleared it as well. After clearing the interview round they informed me about evaluation round in which it was stated that they would like to inspect me in first 10 days on some points like programming ability, technical knowledge, will I adopt to IT work environment. Based on this inspection they would further sort out candidates which were suitable for the role. Being a fresher and I needed one chance to prove myself so I took the decision to go for evaluation round. So on my very first day, recruiter took my programming test on simple logics and asked me to learn react native. I was not aware about react native before but after reading and exploring about react native I was getting pretty comfortable with this technology and had my interest built up in it in these span of 10 days. I gave my best in that 10 days of evaluation and in result I got selected in Redbytes as trainee Engineer. At the end I would like to add that I liked the process of selecting a candidate because in this way candidate knows about his abilities, strong and weak points. I would like to thank redbytes recruitment team for giving me chance to forecast my skills and I am looking forward to deliver my best at this organization. Thank you!
